Really lovely bar with a nice rooftop view and good cocktails. It’ll might be a challenge to climb all those stairs to reach it but it’ll be worth it.
Amazing!! Recommended by a friend - we wouldn't have found this otherwise. The most incredible roof top views. Very friendly staff. Lots and lots of stairs to get 4 floors up to the roof terrace but so worth it! No food sadly but lovely cocktails and good drinks menu.
Best place in Oxford for amazing views of the towers and steeples. Worth booking a table outside if it's busy. There's alotnof stairs for those who would struggle so worth noting.
We only had drinks here. Great venue for roof top views but just not enough staff to serve. They were friendly but had to get their attention. Reason price and worth going there for the views.
I highly recommend this place for a lovely sunny day! It offers stunning views and has a delightful atmosphere. While they had some excellent cocktails on the menu, I feel they could expand their selection. I was specifically craving an espresso martini, but the only option they provided was to order it at the downstairs bar and bring it upstairs, which I didn't find entirely fair or convenient. However, aside from that minor inconvenience, it's a place that I wholeheartedly recommend visiting! If you found this review helpful, please consider clicking the like button to show your support.
