Didn’t try the food so can’t comment. The pizza looks really nice though! Our cocktails were delicious.

Great place to go to, a little tricky to find but it’s definitely worth it! Great view and great atmosphere with quick and lovely service. The size of the drinks is a little small for what you pay, but certainly not outrages and stil good value for money

Great food. Its pretty expensive for drinks and very busy up there so not a very relaxing environment, but the view is great and its overall a good experience.

Really over priced for what you get! £10 for cocktails in a plastic cup in peckham ?? Seriously ridiculous. And £23 for a bottle of rose that costs £3 in the shop is not on .

We travelled quite far to the rooftop for the view and we were seated with the pizza hut blocking our view. We asked the workers to move us where they told us they could only if there was no shows of larger parties. The cocktails were quite expensive and served in plastic throwaway cups. We ended up leaving without getting a drink as it is pointless to get a £10 cocktail staring at a view of Peckham Rye and the pizza hut.

The service was excellent, couldn’t do more for us. The Pizza was incredible and we got an extra bit for the birthday celebrations. The Pizza place owners (the lady was dressed as a Roman to watch the football is a legend and made our night) will be coming back!

They don’t want to help. The process is book a table online. If cancel within 24 hours then £5 fee each person. (Recorded whole process on camera). To cancel you have to call their number because can’t do it online. You call number and no option to cancel or modify at all. You attend then they do bag check and nhs scan. You are then designated a table which you can’t choose, even if the place is empty. If you ask to move to another table they say you can’t because the table is for a group not for 2. Placed us in the middle with uncomfortable seats and tables. Pizzas ordered, both had 0% tomato. All cheese and bread. Pizza so cheesy, fold it and you get a cheese sandwich. I ask for tomato sauce or ketchup they say you have to order on the app. I check the app nothing there. I ask and they say no sauce. So pizza with no tomato and restaurant with no option of Some kind of tomato sauce. Served on paper and paper plate. Oil seeping through paper from pizza. No napkins.

You don’t order face to face, you order on your phone from the restaurant. Staff don’t seem to want to help. They want you to just sit down follow their rules and eat whatever they give you on your greasy table.

Thankful for this experience because never going to something like this again. All this during these tough times? Nah. Many people I know are sweating and crying from work trying to satisfy customers and generate revenue during this covid time.

Came mainly for the view. View ain’t good at all (ain’t Greece) and they won’t let you sit where you want. What’s the point.

Really great atmosphere, cool venue and great views across South London (although totally inaccessible to those with mobility issues…and you’re not forewarned).

But the drinks are so overpriced for what you get, Daiquiris served in tiny miniature cups, the frozen ones aren’t that much bigger. Just disappointed considering the prices.

Great place to visit. Food was tasty and drinks were good. The frozen cocktails are quite small though even if they are tasty. And the ordering can be a little confusing and annoying having the sign up for an account. But would definitely go back.

If I am honest it was the drinks that let the experience down - amazing vibe when we were there but the amount of ice was immense the 1st drink had less ice than the 2nd but it was like we we were drinking water not the actual cocktail……

Not a great experience when the waiter pours beers on you and doesn't even offer a drink to apologise. Just 'Sorry' and walked away, so funny

Lovely to back at the Bussey Rooftop Bar. We didn't eat, because we off to somewhere else for dinner after drinks, though were sorely tempted by the pizzas. Great cocktails and always lovely service and views!
