Don't have tickets to see Andy Murray in the final? Maybe these Wimbledon-themed food hangouts will cheer you up

The Scottish world number 2 will take on big-serving Canadian Milos Raonic at SW16 and you're feeling a bit gutted you're not there to experience it.

While nothing can compensate for being unable to watch Murray in action on Centre Court with your own eyes while devouring your strawberries and cream and a glass of Pimm's, there are other places in London where you can go if you're looking for a perfect (by that we mean luxurious) Wimbledon experience.
