There’s nothing better than morning coffee or afternoon and evening drinks being sat in your favourite sunny or shady spot outside. Bistro Sets give you the perfect space to sit and enjoy time together.

Bistro Sets provide comfortable seating for two, with a table for drinks and nibbles. They’re ideal for smaller patios, decking, terraces and balconies. They also make great focal points for your outdoor space because they can create a feature in the garden, so even if you have a larger garden, a bistro set can look lovely.

Bistro tables are smaller than standard outdoor dining tables, although many are big enough to be able to enjoy a meal at too. Some even come with integrated shelving – the perfect place for a book or tablet. Always check dimensions to make sure you have enough useable space. We provide dimensional information with our products and this will also help to determine if the area you have planned for the set is a good fit too.

Bistro sets can create interest in a garden, with some beautiful designs and detailing. Some tables have mosaic finishes to add colour, whilst others have plain tempered glass top finishes.

Some of our Bistro Sets are part of a wider range of furniture. So, for some a Bistro Set can be used as an accent piece to compliment other furniture you might have in the range. This is a useful point to consider. If this is your first piece of outdoor furniture, consider how your outdoor space might look with additional pieces in the range, such as a lounge set. Likewise, if you have a range already, think about completing your set with a matching bistro set.

With our Bistro Sets, there’s something for everyone. We’ve a wide range of styles to suit most tastes and there’s a range of materials to choose from too, including woven wicker, wood, metal and rope. Most Bistro Sets are suitable for outdoor and indoor use, but we always recommend using a cover regularly to keep it clean and looking like new.

One last point to consider, is how lightweight does the set need to be? Sometimes it is nice to have the option to move a Bistro Set around the garden or be able to fold it away after use. If this is something that interests you, then take a look at our metal and wooden ranges.

So if you want to get together with a friend or loved one and spend some quality time together, then choose a delightful bistro set from our fabulous ranges at Gates Garden Centre.
