WITH summer approaching and pubs currently closed, we've rounded-up the cheapest outdoor bars to help transform your garden.
Whether you're after a basic bar or you want to go the full shebang there's something for everyone out there – and it might help keep you entertained given pubs aren't allowed to reopen until at least July 4 due to lockdown.
Plus, even when they do reopen they'll likely look very different with perspex screens in place and limits on how much booze you can buy.
So to help recreate your local boozer we've taken a look at bars costing less than £300. There are more options available if you've got a bit more money to spend, for example, John Lewis has this snazzy tiki-style bar available for £575, plus free delivery.
It's also worth pointing out that lots of big name retailers have sold out of garden bars in the run-up to this weekend's Bank Holiday so it might be worth checking websites for new stock in the coming days, or trying a nearby store to see if you get lucky.
These include Asda's £269 tiki-style bar, Robert Dyas' £129.99 gazebo-style bar, Wickes' £350 wooden bar, and Wilko £550 shed-style bar.
With any purchase only buy it if you can afford it, and make sure you compare prices first using an online price checking tool, such as Price Spy.
Also bear in mind you could save by buying some wood or pallets and making a bar yourself, as these The Sun readers have done, but this won't suit everyone.
Here's what we've found.
Keter Pacific Rattan Effect Garden Cool Bar – £30
Homebase is selling this fun mini bar for a bargain £29.95.
The 30L bucket base is perfect for keeping drinks cold surrounded by ice, and you can either use the top as a coffee-style table or slide it up to create a bar.
Closed, it measures 49.5cm x 49.5cm x 57cm (L x W x H), while open it's 49.5cm x 49.5cm x 82.5cm (L x W x H).
It's not available for home delivery but you can click and collect if it's available in your nearest store, which is free to do.
When we checked one London location it was available in one of the five nearest stores.
Wooden/ Pallet Garden Bar – £120
One eBay user is selling this homemade garden bar made from pallets for £120 painted or for £90 unpainted.
It's available for free collection in the north east of England or the seller will deliver it locally for an undisclosed fee.
While this is a regional deal, it's a good example of how you can check eBay for secondhand or handmade bars near you.
UK Leisure World Waterproof Outdoor Garden Gazebo – £130
Third party seller UK Leisure World is selling this gazebo with a bar on Amazon for £129.99, plus free delivery.
The good news with this bar is that it's covered, so it should keep you dry if it rains.
Only five people have reviewed the bar so far on Amazon, but it's got 4.5 stars out of five overall.
Argos Home Solid Wood Space Saving Bar and Stools – £220
A sturdier garden bar is this wooden version from Argos costing £220, which includes a folding bar table and two stalls.
If you're thinking of getting it, bear in mind the table measures in at 100cm x 150cm x 54xm (H x W x L), while the stalls are 73cm x 32cm x 32cm (H x W x D).
It wasn't available for in-store collection when we checked a London address, but it was available for home delivery costing either £6.95 or £12.95 depending on the time of day.
Middlet Tiki bar – £284
Wayfair is selling this wooden Tiki-style bar with a roof for £283.99, plus free delivery.
It could make a stylish addition to your garden measuring in at 217cm x 122cm x 106cm (H x W x D).
Just bear in mind you'll have to buy stalls separately.
