Bussey Rooftop Bar
Setting is great but staff are unhelpful and seem strangely reluctant to let people in (even with bookings). Would not recommend location when the weather is bad - it feels very exposed up there and was like a wind tunnel with sheets of rain blowing straight in despite the fact that we were at covered tables, saw loads of people’s drinks get tipped over! (Obviously not the bar’s fault but just for reference).
In summary, view and setting great but staff unhelpful and frankly quite hostile (and don’t go in bad weather)!
Only half of the roof is covered. You can’t book for the covered half, you just get put outside, exposed to the rain despite booking it thinking you’ve got a roof over your head. Just miserable!!
The area it’s in is awful, the place is run down until you get in the bar and we were given awful seats out the way near the door to leave. If you go sit by the top end request it
Excellent organisation in regards to covid precautions. The staff were really efficient and friendly.
Once seated the atmosphere was really great. Tiny bit tardy getting the drinks to the table via the app system but we are all getting used to a new way of doing things.
The pizzas were great. And we ended up having a fantastic time as always.
A big thank you to the staff for keeping everything running smoothly.
What a surprise at the top of this building! Great views, great decor (could do with more towards the entrance as people sat there don't get the same experience as the rest), quick service. Unfortunately we didn't try the pizza's as when we wanted to order we couldn't due to the 10pm curfew so not their fault, however what came out looked pretty good!
Great selection of gins and vodkas! Would definitely recommend this place. Don't be out off by the entrance and all the stairs! It's worth it!
There was a backlog of food orders so no more orders could be made for two hours, by which point, the bar would be closing.
We had to keep asking for updates whereas this information could have been passed on at the door.
They only serve pizzas, and they didn't have any available. Cocktail list is limited. And perhaps now its getting colder get some heaters installed. But had a good time all but a bit cold
Could do with some outdoor heating at this time of year, but nice atmosphere otherwise
Thank you so much to the staff at Bussey bar who let me host my birthday on the roof top the staff were so nice and accommodating and the Aperol spritz was 10/10. I know some of my party had to wait over an hour for their pizza which is pretty long but will definitely be going okay but would like to be on the other side next time with the heaters and the colourful setting! But overall a great night
Staff were great and had a fantastic evening at bussey bar.
Only downside being there’s a small selection of food and drinks.
Thanks Bussey rooftop for looking after us so well, adhering to strict social distancing rules but also great friendly accommodating staff. Our waitress was lovely and the door staff were friendly and fun and even found us another table when our time was up.
The pizza up here is so good the dough is insanely good and the toppings were tasty (get yourself a burrata on yours!).
The bar are doing delicious mulled wine, cider and non alcholic drinks that kept u warm on a chilly Saturday afternoon.
My only slight gripe is that there were no outdoor heaters so wrap up warm!
Really lovely atmosphere and plenty of space between customers so it didn’t feel crowded. Service was quick and all staff were very friendly. Only thing to comment on was the value for money on drinks was quite poor - food was great value though and delicious!
Really nothing exciting, food was not available because was too busy, although the venue wasn’t even at capacity, no heaters so it was freezing!
You had to run after waiters to get their attention
Guys, get some heaters! Great rooftop space but if you're gonna be open in October and charge £6 a pint, warm us up please.
Music could of been better and also the drinks me and my friend order a glass of wine for £5 and it was small and nasty
Great pizza, and quick service. Well spaced out tables.
Great space, good service and felt totally safe from all things Covid, will definitely be back!
Brilliant views but we chose a night when it was too cold.
We had such a wonderful time at Bussey (despite the awful weather). We were really well catered for and the food and drink were outstanding. I’ll definitely be returning!
Wet and windy on the roof, lacked atmosphere - drinks were good tho!
Great vibe, friendly staff and felt safe - really well done :)
The pizza order was slow but the staff were kind enough to give us a free side with the order. The drinks and food were very tasty. The ambience and rooftop setting is very pretty with neon lighting and you can see across the city. The only problem we had is that because it is situated in an industrial building the toilets were quite busy and cramped.
Perfect covid friendly venue for late summer drinks.
Liked the ambience. Nice views, interesting decor. Drinks too expensive to be served in very small plastic single use cups and also ecologically wrong. We came a bit early (10’) for our reservation and although there were quite a few empty tables, they wouldn’t let us in until that time. Keep in mind that only way to pay is through the webpage. You can’t go to the bar to order.
The atmosphere was really nice and the online service system was quite straightforward to use. I would have appreciated to know in advance that the outdoor area would have closed at 6pm but in the end they were able to move us to the part that remained open.
The vibe wasn't there. There were quite a few smokers. Even though it is a rooftop bar, if you do not smoke you get wafts of cigarette smoke blowing in your direction. Not cool, there should be a separate level where you smoke away from others who are eating and drinking. The drink service was slooooooow and way too much ice and chaser in the drink order which was actually a double.
Really nice vibe and stylish set up. Drinks fairly expensive.
Just so gutted to be sitting with a view of the black pizza oven area and couldn't see the sights of London. It should she shared when you book as I wouldn't have come. So disappointed really. We tried to change tables but told we couldn't yet an empty on sat there for ages with the gorgeous view.. a shame as it's normally lovely up there.
You have to walk up numerous flights of stairs to reach the rooftop bar, past smashed windows and the toilets were also awful and the same sex.
The only saving grace for the bar itself was the flowers and light decor + the pizza bar wasn’t bad.
Not in a nice area and certainly won’t be rushing back
It was quite busy but staff were very efficient and quick. Very dogfriendly and I would definitely recommend this place. Lovely views over London.
We didn't eat here so I'm just going on the appearance of the food which looked OK.
Pizza on the menu - what's not to like? Good quality, tasty and not too doughy. Great cider on tap here as well (Aspalls) and so good to be on a rooftop setting with great views.
Beautifully decorated, efficient service, friendly staff and lovely views. Just with there was a larger cocktail selection. Overall I enjoyed my visit and will be returning.
Had a really lovely evening at Bussey Rooftop. A spectacular view over London. Highly recommend.
Pizza took over an hour to come, would recommend for drinks but food isn’t worth it
Great food, great deal on a Sunday, with a Prosecco and pizza for £11.00!
Didn’t have any food but the beer, service and view was great. Recommend visiting just before sunset
Upon arrival we were put at a table which wasn’t as nice as others around us which were empty. Politely asked if we could move to one of the many empty tables and the waitress very rudely and sarcastically responded saying “no, thanks so much for asking though”. Over 2 hours later and these tables were still empty. Asked to move again and was told by another waiter we would be moved if another group didn’t show. Nobody turned up for the rest of the night and we were ignored by this waiter. Given the price we were paying for the drinks the service at this place was terrible. Wouldn’t recommend.
Table service so slow to get drinks, and all in plastic (understandably given it's a rooftop!) but still charging premium prices. But amazing view, such a lovely place to spend a sunny evening.
