IN celebration of pubs beginning to reopen their doors, the Daily Echo takes a look at ten of the best pub gardens in Southampton

For many there's no better way to soak up the sun than being outside in a garden - especially one attached to a pub.

Some have sprawling blankets of beautiful green grass and flower beds sporting an array of vivid colours, while others are modern beer terraces with wooden decking and comfy outdoor seating.

The list is made from the top five on TripAdvisor along with the top five from a previous poll.

The Daily Echo is also asking readers to vote for which pub garden they're most looking forward to visit once again.
