I assume you mean plug socket - if so and it is inside on a structural sound/dry building then it is ok.

If it is outside then you need a weatherproof socket - rated to at least IP66 - something like this ..... screwfix.com/p/l…139

The cable to the building should really be armoured - screwfix.com/p/p…784

yes just not in a pond

What's a plug socket? It's one or the other.

Hahaha, brilliant. Those are all pictures of sockets. Plugs go in sockets. Sockets receive plugs. Something can't be both. It's like calling something an up down.

The socket only takes plugs, therefore plug socket is valid. "Plug" is being used as an adjective to describe what the socket is for.
Same way you can put food into a bowl, and therefore call it a food bowl.

It doesn't hurt to specify what the socket is intended to hold. It is no different to saying eye socket.
