Send us a tip on a UK pub beer garden for the chance to win a £200 holiday voucher


“The great surprise of the Moon Under Water is its garden. You go through a narrow passage leading out of the saloon, and find yourself in a fairly large garden with plane trees, under which there are little green tables with iron chairs round them. Up at one end of the garden there are swings and a chute for the children. On summer evenings there are family parties, and you sit under the plane trees having beer or draught cider to the tune of delighted squeals from children going down the chute.”

George Orwell was writing about his idealised pub in 1946, after emerging from the darkness of the second word war. And many of us have been dreaming about similar sunny scenarios after being in lockdown since November. But it won’t be long before dreams become realities, so we’d like you to tell us about your favourite beer gardens across the UK where you’re looking forward to meeting up with friends and family again.

If you have a relevant photo, do send it in – but it’s your words that will be judged for the competition.

Keep your tip to about 100 words. The best tips will appear on the Guardian Travel website, and maybe in the paper, too.

The best tip of the week, chosen by travel expert Tom Hall, will win a £200 voucher for a stay at a Sawday’s property – the company has more than 3,000 in the UK and Europe.
