12th Knot at Sea Containers London (formerly Rumpus Room)
Fabulous atmosphere, friendly staff; lively, great views
The location and views are terrific, its quite noisy and the service was OK, but it's good fun and well worth a visit.
Loved this as the rumpus rooms , drinks still as pricey , service slow and no nibbles provided .
Love the view, music was just right,staff was friendly,food is ok, would be good to keep the outside area a bit longer
Drinks were good and typical London prices for a roof top bar. Service was very very slow. Tables around us were getting a lot more attention. It felt like we were being ignored because we were younger than others and therefore they thought we couldn’t afford it and consequently didn’t pay us any attention.
I booked a table reservation for my partners birthday and on first glimpse all was perfect. However, I would only recommend this venue for one drink.
Poor table service! We were made to feel not a priority. Be prepared to wait, found it challenging to grab the servers attention. Instead go to the bar to place your order.
The atmosphere seemed very formal full of office suits, perhaps a better vibe on a weekend. What a shame! I chose this venue for my partners birthday because of the live music and previous reviews of the rooftop view. This service does not compare to the impeccable service at Lyon-ess downstairs.
Best view in town, especially outside. Service took a bit long.
Great atmosphere, beautiful views. Good DJ on a Friday night. Varied selection of cocktails a bit on the expensive side. I would definitely visit again.
Table service was terrible. Every time we wanted a drink we had to stop servers as they walked by. Previously they would approach when they could see the drinks were getting low
Pretentious, insufferable staff. HORRIBLE service.
Lovely views the staff were really friendly and the drinks are good
Great views. Service was friendly. Prices on par with other similar bars. Menu limited (we intended to have dinner, but Tuesday there is only a dumpling menu which meant we had to go elsewhere for food)
Beautiful bar with amazing views and great cocktails. Service could have been better.
Great lively venue with a fabulous view of St Pauls, the City and the river. The cocktail menu was innovative and fun, the live music (a little loud) but gave the place a fantastic vibe and it was busy, bussling and a lot of fun. Service could be a little slow- but that is because it was so lively. We had the table for two hours (inside) and like most other people we went out to the balcony for the views throughout the evening. Lovely venue.
We had good seats/views but that's easy enough to do when you have a rooftop bar. The service was abysmally slow - we sat for at least 20 minutes trying to catch someones attention to order more wine, only to then be told our table turnaround was going to be needed in 10 minutes.
Vegetarian options for food were fine and that's being generous (beware, I think the chips have parmesan on) but my cheese still had plastic wrapped around it.
The songs choices were good from the live band but the actual singing wasn't brilliant.
For the price, I expect better.
Good for a pre going on drink. Dim sum is good, cocktails are well made.
We had a table by the window so had a marvellous view over the Thamesn- amazing even on a dull, wet day. we really enjoyed our visit.
A very well appointed bar with lots of seating and sofas beautiful views accross the City - however very I mean very loud DJ playing banging sounds which no one was interested in but I had a headache within 30 mins!
A guy playing a piano would have been far better for this type of establishment and I felt it let it down badly
Great view. Great service. Wonderful experience.
Had a lovely evening with girlfriends, the bar area is stunning, the views are fab, drink selection great. The service, however was not great, the waitresses were very moody and not very attentive. However, the head guy (didnt get his name) was really accomodating and let us have the table for longer than usually allowed. Would definately go back as had a great vibe. Hopefully the staff will smile and be happy by then!
Lovely bar with fantastic live music and an amazing view from the rooftop but high prices to match.
Great bar with fantastic views of the City and Thames reached via a hidden lift in the lobby of the Sea Container hotel. The door policy is not the most friendly and when you can actually get the eye of one of the bar staff to order a drink they are pricey but tasty. Beer, wine, spirits inc lots and lots of gins-and cocktails. Hot drinks are not available but you can get one from the hotel and bring it up. Note that you need to get this authorised or you will have trouble getting back in - see my earlier comment on the friendliness of the door staff. In summary, you should come here for the view despite the mixed levels of service you will get.
Great place to have a drink. A bit too much noise but wonderful view and nice staff !
Great place for good views, excellent service and comfortable seating arrangements. We went on a Tuesday which is kitchen takeover day, we had Asian dumplings, all very tasty. Thoroughly recommend, bit pricey but worth it for a special occasion.
Horrible service we ordered a bottle of champagne took a while for waitress bring it to the table and after he pour it
He left bottle on table ,, I have to call somebody else to ask to put bottle on a bucket “common sense “
Then I asked for a liquor he forgot , he never check on our table , the 2nd bottle I have to called to somebody else .
Beautiful place but the service was the worst
The service was awful, seemed to be a an effort for the waitress to serve us. You have a table for 2 hours and are swiftly told when you need to leave. Pretentious atmosphere, shame because the views are lovely.
Had a fantastic celebration drinks here, with a great band playing live music on Wednesdays! Cheese board was lovely too. Only let down was the man organising the tables could have been much friendlier, arrived early for our table and he made us feel awkward for staying the total time we had booked (had been booked weeks in advance)! Apart from this I would definitely return.
Second time I’ve visited in 3 weeks. You have to book but service, atmosphere and views great!
Very attentive staff. Fabulous views. A little noisy due to sitting under overhead speakers but very quickly moved when we mentioned our concerns
Good fun, good ambience, good cocktails drinks.
Great service and great staff
Excellent service on arrivals by Reuben who gave us a fabulous table by the window. Served very prompt by staff. Good vibes with DJ playing (Saturday evening). Would highly recommend for fun and classy night out.
Absolutely great place. Good atmosphere, nice music and an amazing view. Would definitely go back !!
It was quite disappointing. It was very noisy and the drinks were terrible. It's not the best rooftop bar It was okay.
I love this place. Been here many times and this occasion was no exception. Live music at just the right volume with some funky covers, good food, breathtaking view especially as the sun was setting and attentive, well timed service.
They've let this place go significantly. from the rude and flustered employee at the entrance to the general decor and set up. This used to be a great spot to enjoy good cocktails and music. The music and the cocktails are still great, but the staff are overwhelmed and poorly managed. The tables and seats were dirty and the clientele reflected the dropped standards. we left after a single drink.
The layout of this roofbar is amazing. It was a hot day and we were seated just next to the open window which was great. The views are really nice
Excellent interior design, music and friendly customers made a good vibe and somewhat unique atmosphere.
Cocktails were tasty and high quality. The suff seemed to me bit little too casual for a premium venue. As we entered, we were waiting for a few minutes until hostess finished showing pictures to a friend or colleague. Also, before we ordered drinks we were requested to either pay upfront, or open a tab which did not help pleasant experience.
On the other hand, apart of these few details, service was great, we enjoyed our time and I would happily recommend 12th Knot to friends.
This place is amazing!!! I would definitely go back. We reserved a table and the service was amazing. As it was a hot summers day we managed to get the swinging chairs on the balcony too - which was brilliant. Lovely views of the Thames and St. Paul’s. Cocktails were amazing too! Get yourself there!!!!
