Yes, it’s not the summer we had planned, but nothing can take away a chilled glass of rosé on our balcony or in our garden at the end (or middle) of a long day.

The problem is that it’s not only us who are warming up at lightning speed, its also our drinks.

And even though it’s only us at the moment, when we are finally allowed to have people over again, we remember only too well the chore of having to keep everyone’s drinks at optimum temperature.

Enter the Rattan Outdoor Cool Bar Ice Cooler Table, a table but not as you know it.

It slides up to reveal a 30-litre ice bucket that can keep a seemingly endless amount of drinks chilled.

Plus, use it to keep BBQ components chilled until they’re ready for their time on the grill.

Ah, bliss.

Why we love it:

We love nothing more than a chilled glass of rosé in the summer but we aren’t quite as enthralled when it’s a lukewarm bottle that’s been quietly heating up on the patio.

So, the ability to keep our drinks at optimum temperature without running in and out taking them out the fridge is high up on our priority list.

How it works:

The cooler compartment has a 30L capacity with more than enough room for drinks on ice for the adults and kids. The top rises smoothly from 57 cm to 82.5cm in overall height and locks into place to prevent it from falling when topped with provisions.

The centre can then be filled with ice and drinks popped on top - easy.

What the reviews say:

With 80% of the almost 600 reviews hitting five stars, it’s clear that well-hydrated shoppers are taken with their purchase.

  • “Very easy to put together. Sturdy and well made. Very very happy with this, my friends and family have now bought one.”

  • “Does the job perfectly - keeps beer bottles/cans cold (with ice added) and table top is perfect for holding bottle openers & glasses/mugs. Added benefit that table 'lid' can be closed (pushed down) to keep drinks cool until BBQ guests arrive!”

  • “Spotted one at a friends BBQ and we were hooked on it.”

  • “ The interior for drinks on the picture undersells this since they have raised the bottles! It's so much deeper. It holds loads.”

  • “This is a fantastic product and no pictures can do it any justice - when our friends saw it they ordered one too.”

  • “Bought this for my husband and it’s absolutely marvelous! we use it for the cold drinks saves keep going in and especially for the table and matches all our other furniture.”
