My mum and I had food and cocktails at The Rooftop recently. We were impressed! The margaritas were tasty and the food was too. Generous portions, attending service and good value for money. I would go back.

Nice bar think the £50 per head min spend us too much.

We called before to ask if there were tv screens to show the football. They confirmed 3 times there were tv screens. We arrived and there were no screens on the rooftop. We were told we have to stay and spend the minimum. We asked if there were any other screens in the casino, and 2 different bartenders confirmed the football wasn’t showing anywhere. We then found out at half time that level 3 were in fact showing the football. Overall we were disappointed with staff knowledge of the casino.

The rooftop is located on floor 5 of hippodrome casino, very nice and chic, there's also an underground floor which I couldn't see much, but I've seen lots of people going up and down so I assume is a great place. The drinks were amazing, though the food choice was limited but still good. Will certainly come back again!

Been here twice now, drinks are amazing, atmosphere is top notch and the food is really nice!
Only issue is the £50 minimum spend per person, and the slots are 2 hours so you have to power through the drinks (they are lush though) but that's not a personal issue.
Would recommend to anyone, I think it's a great addition to Central London

We were running a bit late and they kindly held our table for us (good first impression!). Great staff, good food and very reasonable cost overall. Good location too. One of London's hidden gems.

Was very disappointed: no views over Leicester Square as described, very noisy, drinks and food ok and why put all the heating rads on??? It was extremely warm and despite everybody complained about it, they didn’t turn them off. We had to leave because it was unbearable!

Amazing service, staff are extremely attentive and friendly! Lehel served us and treated us with great care while giving us recommendations on the cocktails which were all amazing. The bar is split into 2 for smokers and non-smokers which was impeccable as not many rooftop bars have this. It was loud but what do you expect? Would recommend going 100% i will definitely be going back!

Very average bar. Extremely underwhelming and limited drinks menu. No real scenic views. Quite small so any smokers really impact the experience for non -smokers. Overly priced. Service was good.

went for dinner and the service was really good, food tasted okay but after eating and leaving felt very unwell my partner was actually sick, for the price you pay you don’t expect to get unwell from eating here, such a shame but won’t be returning

Great cocktails and super speedy service. The only slight annoyance is that there is just one loo in the bar which is a disabled toilet. Not great for the ladies. Apart from this everything was great!

Not quite the terrace experience I was expecting . Not a restaurant at all sadly, just mediocre bar food and seedy surroundings. Staff were the shining light with good humour and prompt service.

My partner and I had a table booked on the roof terrace. It started to rain and the cover went over immediately however, as our table was on the edge of the terrace we were getting a bit wet but the staff moved us immediately which was very much appreciated. The cocktails were lovely and reasonably priced for the location, the food was quite basic bar food but still delicious. Service was a little slow at times but it was quite busy so that is expected really.

Great venue, service only issue was getting to the roof top. I was escorted to the lift but door locked on 4th/5th floors needed to go to 3rd and walk up. Which should have be explained !
