12th Knot at Sea Containers London (formerly Rumpus Room)
What Insiders Are Saying
Rumpus Room is a trendy bar in the Mondrian Hotel, but with actual good vibes and drinks. It’s pricey, but worth the cost for the view.
Incredible views on the terrace. Amazing service very friendly and considered. Cocktails were tasty. Would highly recommend.
Made reservation for 7.30 pm two days beforehand. Received a confirmation email accordingly and subsequently turned up as per the booking only to be told that there was a private function that evening so we’re turned away at the door leaving it too late to make alternative arrangements. Received an automated email from the venue with no apology when they messaged to ask why I didn’t turn up?!!!..naturally I responded but again received no apology just another automated response..pity
Amazing service. The gentlemen Front of House (apologies, I don’t know his name but good dress sense, glasses) was so accommodating. We were a group of girls eager to see our friend that lived abroad and he could not do enough to accommodate the growing number of girls and champagne bottles and plates of food we kept ordering! They never let the venue get crowded like others keen to cash in on a sunny day in London. My only request is that they keep the terrace open later!
Fantastic view; very nice atmosphere.
I have been wanting to go here for ages and I was actually really disappointed.
The place itself is hard to find and when we asked the reception staff how to get up to 12th Knot they said ‘just get the lift!’ We didn’t know where the lift even was. The place itself is really cool with amazing views. The cocktail menu is so limited with not much choice so we opted for gin and tonics which were very pricey. The service was poor, we sat for 15 minutes before anyone came to our table. Two strangers were told they could sit with us at our table (which I prebooked) without being asked and then they sat listening to our conversation so it was very uncomfortable so we decided to leave. Very disappointed.
Had a lovely evening the service and staff were on top form very polite and helpful would defo recommend this to friends and the and the atmosphere was spot on didn’t really want to leave 😉
Overall good value, crowd was upclass and views were amazing. Food options will do good to have more variety, they dont have option to walk up to counter and order and force you to wait for table service but at peak times will need to wait for 20-30 minutes to get attention of a server to order something (especially after your initial order), not sure if it was shortage of servers or because we didnt look westerners.
Very good to relax and chill out with friends but as a date I would not recommend. The seating is too spread out for a romantic night.
Great venue and nice drinks.
The service was brilliant! Will definitively return!
If you are a couple be prepared to be sat in the middle of the bar area on the sofa and the other person has to sit on a stall for 2 hours. It is really cramped and conversations either side of you totally overheard. Was really looking forward to trying this bar, my recommendation would be if you're a couple go on a warm day & sit outside or just go as a group to get a better table around the outside.
This is a beautiful bar with delicious cocktails. A bit pricey so maybe more for a special night out or when you're trying to impress (seemed to be a lot of first dates going on). Really friendly and happy staff. It must be a great place to work.
A brilliant bar with a view- good service, great music, excellent drinks. A fantastic way to spend an evening with friends!
The views and ambience make this place. I found the service slow and on a number of occasions had to physically get up and approach a member of staff to get a drink although should be table service
If you want a beautiful view and excellent cocktail, then I recommend. There was a very limited menu of food the night we went. This is not a restaurant to go to for dinner in my opinion and that is not clear. The cocktails while good are pricey.
I had to cancel my cab twice because they made a mistake and I had to wait almost 20minutes just to pay. The whole evening was going good until the time it came to pay the bill. I asked the waitress that was serving us initially, she disappeared. I asked another one and she said she will get it and vanished again, so we had to get up and go to the counter to ask for our bill and even after that no one told us there was an issue with the system or what the hold off was so we were just standing around in the middle embarrassingly just to pay. I will never come back again!
Loved the fab view and the delicious cocktails!
Would definitely return!
Great roof top bar with good views. Not cheap though!
I love this bar, great location, great food and service. Very relaxed evening with my friends. Cannot wait to go back.
Excellent service and great views. The atmosphere was very nice and pleasant.
Great views. Good space. Lovely team. Cocktails so good. Didn't eat so ignore that rating. Lift could be bit better directed. Perfect for a catch up with friends,.
Visited on a Saturday night at 9 having booked in advance came with my daughter. We both felt comfortable and not ‘out of place’ despite the 30 year age gap !
Wonderful service, great staff ....everything was faultless !
Looking forward to my next visit!
lovely venue with great vibe, amazing views, service was very good and cocktails were very tasty!
Beautiful view and chilled atmosphere! Great to go in the evening
Very nice place And surprisingly not super busy - amazing views and smoking balcony!
Best view we could have asked for. Great drinks and lovely decor.
Extremely slow service, we were seated and took 40 minutes to receive our first round of drinks. An hour and half into being seated we were constantly reminded our time is ending and we have to give up the table soon. As well, orders were missed yet we were charged for. For two hours of being seated and slow service we only managed to get two rounds of drinks which is not acceptable service.
Exquisite drinks, friendly staff, overall very much enjoyed it.
A beautiful view and delicious cocktails - perfect.
We had a wonderful time at the Rumpus Room, celebrating a birthday. The Hungarian waitress we had was an absolute delight and went out of her way to help us, including making us a fruit plate when asked. The red wine was good and she changed one of our drinks without any questions asked when it wasn’t that great. Would recommend and return!
Excellent views, delicious cocktails! o=One of the best bars in London!
Stunning venue but service was very slow until the end of our 2-hour slot where we were then reminded every 5 minutes for the last half an hour that our time was running out! Never felt so ‘on the clock’. Cocktails were lovely but nibbles were very expensive considering other London bars provide these!
Experience was absolutely lovely, we also dined at the restaurant in the hotel. Very happy with the service.
One of the best spots in London. Reservation is only for 2 hours which you are not told when booking which is annoying and could ruin people's night.
Excellent service, amazing cocktails, great ambience & views!
Been there for a catch up with friends,nice place with very nice staff,all the time checking if you ok with the drinks .Amazing view .But a bit expensive.
Been to this place lots before but it’s now under new management, absolutely horrible manger made to feel uncomfortable and watched all night. Has no idea how to make a place have an atmosphere, horrible never go again
Lovely venue, felt incredibly rushed even though they were late to seat us. Food was fabulous
Was a lovely experience... overall view wonderful....
however not a place to frequent regularly as the prices of drinks stop this from being a drop in place for a quick drink ...
