Our Top List of Outdoor Picnic Tables

Eating outside is one of summer's pleasures and Nathan James Dodd thinks there's nothing better or more simple than a picnic table on which to share a meal with family and friends.

Grange Picnic Table

Suitable for both adults and children, there's plenty of choice of picnic tables, and they are all quality products that are very easy to assemble.

Rowlinson

Rowlinson make a huge variety of timber garden products so it's only natural that they have two different sized picnic tables on offer, one 4ft long bench suitable for four people, the other 5ft bench for up to six people.

They are both very sturdy and large enough to accommodate plenty of plates and dishes. The natural timber finish can be painted or stained, and the timber is pressure treated to be rot resistant.

Grange

Grange are another company that use only the best environmentally friendly materials and their 6½ft picnic table has space saving folding seats. Again the timber is guaranteed against rot and, with the seats folded, can be used just as a useful table.

Round picnic tables from Rowlinson and Grange are of a similar design, and up to eight people can eat and drink in comfort around them.

Alexander Rose

Top quality furniture in the Pine Collection from Alexander Rose has a natural yellow/green grain that mellows to silver grey. Their Woburn 5ft and 6ft picnic tables are traditionally designed and carry a three year warranty. The Gleneagles table is chunkily styled with eight stools around a round table, and thoughtfully there is a support to keep your parasol upright in breezy weather.

If you are planning a large get together then Alexander Rose's 6ft Farmers Dining Table with accompanying stools should fit the bill, a fantastic way for all the family to gather on a sunny summer's Sunday afternoon.

Forest

Also somewhat rustic are the two Refectory Bench and Tables from Forest. These are very substantial, made up from sleeper benches and a refectory type table taht can be bought separately, and guaranteed for 15 years.

Children's Tables

In addition to their classic Katrina, and circular Katie and Rose picnic tables, Zest have one specially designed so that children don't miss out on the enjoyment of eating outside.

Children's rectangular and circular picnic tables are a speciality of Plum Products with removable tops that reveal compartments for just sand or sand and water.
