Our indoor Glass Orangery protects against the elements but retains the fantastic views, allowing you to eat and drink all year-round. During the colder months the inspiration for the menu comes from the Alpine regions and being on the Rooftop is like a ski holiday without the hard work – think cheese fondue and melting raclette with hot cocktails to warm your insides.

We booked a table for two on the rooftop for dinner and cocktails. From the moment we entered the building, we were constantly reminded by grumpy staff that we only had two hours at the table and were made to finish our drinks very quickly when our time was up. We politely asked several members of staff if we could possibly move to a different table to continue our evening, but received very short responses each time that it was not possible. We weren't made to feel very welcome at all. The rooftop itself wasn't very busy and we were surrounded by empty tables. It's possible they had to leave time between seatings to clean the tables throughly, but this was not explained and the general attitude of the staff seemed quite mean and stressed. The decor was nice and the food was ok (a little overpriced). It was VERY well heated, so do wear layers that you can take off if you're seated outdoors.

Hi Miranda, We are saddened to hear of your experience the night before Tier 3 restrictions came into effect. Whilst we would love to host for the evening, sadly the first sittings need to be turned after a standard two hours. We were fully booked for later dinner bookings and a reduced capacity in line with social distancing means we have less flexibility. We hope to see you again once the government permits for what will hopefully be a less stressful time for all. All the best - stay safe.

We had a small gathering of 3 sitting outside Saturday lunchtime. It was windy up on the roof but they do everything to keep you warm with heaters and blankets.
The Digging for Victory cocktail was one of the best cocktails I’ve ever had. Amazing. The food was superb. Really loved the duck.
Can’t praise this place enough. The vibe is chilled and laid back but in a beautiful setting. Bet it’s gorgeous in the summer. Will defiantly be back then.

It wasn't raining so maybe it would be different if it was (there were brollies but if it's coming down hard I'd imagine you'd still get wet) but overall very good. Comfortable seating, heaters and blankets (a god send!) and the food was tasty and well priced. I'd recommend for anybody looking to dine out with friends in Tier 2!

The staff were wonderful, welcomed us by name and were extremely helpful and accomodating. The food was delicious!! I was surprised by how good it was, I expected something nice but it was really lovely. The drinks - we had wine, dessert wines and cocktails were also wonderful. All round great night out!!

The place was decorated so beautifully, fairly lights everywhere and sheepskins on the chairs, the decor was gorgeous and perfect for a party of 6 birthday celebration. Some of the food we had wasn't the best (particularly the steaks & prawns) which was a shame, but given the setting we forgave everything!

We loved the place, cosy and elegant with a beautiful vieux. But we were very disappointed because the food menu wasn’t accurate and the waitresses didn’t tell us before we ordered our course.
The food was good but nothing special.
And in the end, the staff wasn’t friendly at all and a bit agressive.

The food was overpriced and average standard. The service was awful. We actually took the service charge of the bill as was not happy. The waitress was not very welcoming and needs to work on her people skills. I had a bench rather then a proper chair so had a backache and was not easy to eat. The place it self was lovely.

My husband and I were seated 'in the kitchen area' on the roof top and it was quite stuffy up there due to the kitchen. Hardly any atmosphere compared to the open air rooftop space (we asked to move however we weren't allowed to move tables...). The waitress wasn't very friendly either. Overall, we wouldn't go again.

Seated indoors we still had a lovely view of the London night sky. The food was excellent. I particularly enjoyed the tempura squid I had as a starter which came served with fresh chilli so may not be to everyone’s taste. Washed down with a Sauvignon Blanc. It was a little pricey but worth it.

It is a pandemic so outside seats shouldn’t be smoking zones, have a few separate tables, but different households can’t mix!!, not pleasant when eating. 15% service charge is a joke and we were not allowed to change that, because the ‘computer won’t let them’!. No allergy menu which is actually a EU requirement. None of the staff covered their noses. Over use of pepper, I actually would like to taste my vegetables. Clearly they had pre-made dishes and where reheating. If you want more customers, charge a bit less:)

Really disappointed by the vibe at Boundary. The food was great, however service was sub standard. We waited 20 minutes before someone taking our order (after we repeatedly asked) and were pretty much ignored throughout our time. We only stayed for 1 hour, due not even being asked if we wanted to order another drink. Overall disappointing, and probably won’t visit again.

Wasn’t a very good experience when we went for my boyfriends birthday last Saturday. I booked a table for 7.30 and we had left by 8pm and had no other bars to go to. We were sat outside and asked if we could order more drinks, the waitress said no you can settle the bill as it’s going to rain and I won’t serve you. We were then asked for £27 for 2 single drinks and not given a bill just have a card machine. Disappointed.

Beautiful location with great ambiance. The food was absolutely delicious, well presented and the portions were very generous. Nice wine selection and tasty cocktails. Friendly and helpful staff.

Great job of social distancing, the venue was kept at low capacity but still had a nice vibe. Very clean and nice toilets!

The food was not the best. The Calamari was weird, either not fresh or overcooked. Not fit for eating. The steak was also bad, overcooked and came out cold. Disappointing as Boundary Rooftop used to be very good. Standards have slipped.

Service has also slipped. It was almost as if we were bothering our waitress even when orders were obviously forgotten.
