We can’t think of many places we’d rather spend a sunny summer’s day than a breezy beer garden with a cocktail in hand


And this blackberry beauty from Roo Allison, landlady and cocktail connoisseur at The Catherine Wheel in Marshfield, is best enjoyed with the girls on the Cotswolds pub’s alfresco terrace.
