What a lovely few hours escape from the hussle if Christmas shopping.
Lovely meal, could have been bigger though. Danny the waiter was amasing. Great place to go. Sat outside and heaters were lovely and warm.
Very nice food but, for the price range, choice was a bit limited. I was surprised to see burgers on the menu.
We recommend the pornstar martini and the whiskey sour cocktails and the cheese platter was also great!
Outside dining at it’s best. Felt very safe and relaxed in these strange times.
Very friendly and considerate staff. 👍
I’ve been to rooftops 3 times now and had a great experience expect for this time just gone. We was sat outside in a very quite part of the restaurant with no heater near us and it was absolutely freezing & when asking the waiter if there was a heater he said it was broken. Luckily we was able to move instead however when having a conversation with my flatmates about our parents and other friends one of the waitresses that was serving is butted in to give us the heads up that it sounded that we were from different house holds because we were talking about our families and to be quite basically. It was really odd as I don’t know why she was listening to the conversation and just because we have different families doesn’t mean we don’t live together?! It was actually quite awkward and uncomfortable. The food wasn’t as nice as it usually is which was a shame. Although I didn’t have a great experience I would still come back as I think covid has affected things like most and usually the atmosphere is really good and I’ve had the same male waiter with longer hair serve us twice before and he is excellent!
Food was lovely although the calamari wasn’t very fresh but steak and sticky toffee pudding was lovely and good value for money. Service was exceptional and drinks were lovely too!
Very impressed with the whole experience. The outside dining with covid restrictions was very well managed made even better with the heaters we were not cold at all. Would definitely return.
Lovely evening although some groups were unable to stick to the rules. Staff did try to contain them to their seats however it didn’t work and I actually witnessed a girl steal a drink from another table. Not the kind of behaviour you would expect in this kind of establishment however not the venues fault.
Other than that the meal was perfect and the staff were fab!
Amazing food , drinks & service - will definitely visit again
Good food and great service; waitress really looked after us.
Explained the covid rules upon arrival. The food was outstanding and the atmosphere very relaxed. The service was good, although a little slow. Will definitely be coming back for a special occasion!
Great service, food was good
It was nice dinner, seamed a little too busy for covid. Views were nice although couldn’t see much at night.
Strange choice for Astro turf floors (perhaps staff have a quick game of 5-a side after we all leave) Not a huge food selection. Food was tasty yet I was left un-satisfied by the quantity of the platters. Cocktails were very nice. Overall a good experience all round
Wonderful setting. Gorgeous lighting, lovely furnishings and proper linen napkins! Waitress service excellent but greeting at the desk a little ‘frosty’.
Food was quite good but not excellent. Presentation of the food was not very impressive; chicken wings just had a bit of lettuce chopped up on the side which I wouldn’t even present at home and mains (Beef fillet and lamb rump) both presented in exactly the same rather boring way (sat on cabbage, carrots and jus) but with different potato. Last time we went a few months ago the standard was much higher so maybe they just had a different chef on last week.
Having visited last week and had a wonderful time with great service we were expecting more of the same. We understood when we were told that we only had the table for 2 hours as the restaurant was fully booked. The food and wine did not disappoint, and mostly neither did the service. However towards the end of the meal we spent about 20 minutes trying to get the waiters attention. So we could order a coffee. When we finally were served we were told there was only filter coffee and there wasn’t really time now. The waitress reluctantly said she could try to juggle tables to accommodate us, when the restaurant was only half full, and clearly this shouldn’t have been any trouble. We just said bring the bill! We left feeling disappointed as with a little effort we could have had another lovely experience. Not sure we’ll take the trouble to come again as we really don’t want to feel like we are an inconvenience.
Excellent service and delicious food.
Many choices on the menu
Bramble cocktails were lovely, shame about the gnocchi. On the plus side, the roast dinners are pretty good. Lovely atmosphere outside.
Great outdoor environment and good food. Service slightly slow but all staff very friendly.
Amazing service, food and drinks! Will be returning for definite! Worth the money, happy to pay for such good food. Couldn’t recommend enough.
Lovely food and great service, it was just a bit too noisy. I felt I couldn’t hear my friend speak and had to shout at each other as too many people around.
Great afternoon in the sunshine - good food and cocktails. The staff were very friendly and the setting was perfect in these difficult times. Will certainly go back again!
Just a bit too much background noise and prices slightly high
I can’t recommend this place enough! It was truly amazing! Food was outstanding, service was impeccable! And the ambience was lovely! As well as it being my partners birthday and without even asking a sparkler was popped in his desert which was a very nice touch! Definitely will be returning on the next special occasion!
Lovely food and atmosphere. Service was poor though. Waited an hour to order dessert and coffee and had to ask twice. Wasnt busy either
The very effective space heaters and friendly attention from waiting staff made for an enjoyable al fresco lunch with fabulous rooftop views of the cathedral. There was lots of cleaning in evidence around the restaurant and staff all wore masks at all times. It felt very COVID compliant.
Very good food and great service! I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and we both enjoyed it.
Service was excellent, but unfortunately we had to wait a very long time for our food and given we were outside it was very extremely cold, then when we got our food some of it was cold. Very expensive for what it was
Staff super friendly and helpful, food fabulous- something for everyone. Great way to eat with my daughter from another household!
What a wonderful oasis of food, drink and fun in the midst of the restrictions of COVID. Very well organised outside, great menu, lovely cocktails and wines. Best of all we had some of the friendliest and diligent service we’ve experienced. We’re going back a couple more times - Boris permitting.
Gluten mince pie put on a non gluten order
Afternoon tea was a bit bland and dry for £24
Area quite cold
Bit of confusion with booking afternoon tea 24hr notice and open table
It’s just a crab cake not a Thai Crab Cake. Cocktails were good though 👍
Apart from being slightly too far from heaters.no complaints,but they brought us warm throws. My friends both had cool chips replaced by hot ones and money off bill,lovely food,
Can’t complain ... lovely food, fantastic service, and great warm outdoor seating :)
Lovely atmosphere, felt safe eating outside although food a bit pricey
Food very good and the staff friendly.
Unfortunately we were sitting outside due the current Covid conditions and whilst there were 2 portable heaters it was freezing throughout our time at the restaurant.
Perhaps an offering of a blanket may be worth considering.
We would recommend this venue and plan to return in warmer climes,,,
Lovely outdoor Covid safe environment - fab service and food
Booked a table for outside my sister and I had a lovely time lovely service quick and efficient lovely setting we where nice and warm from the heaters we enjoyed our evening very much will certainly book again
Lovely birthday meal with a super choice of menu and realistic pricing.
Service was prompt and friendly; table and settings were clean and efficiently laid out.
We weren't hurried and look forward to coming again next year when it's warmer and we can enjoy the view.
Lovely food and service was excellent
We were well looked after thank you
Wonderful food and great service, a bit expensive but we had a enjoyable night
