Unique and spectacular, the original Oxford roof terrace puts you in amongst the Dreaming Spires with unparalleled 360 degree views. The roof is open year-round and table service is offered as standard, so you can spend more time relaxing and enjoying the vistas.

Food from our kitchen is available on the roof and during the warmer months, we operate a full restaurant service. Extensive awnings, glare-free heaters and magical heated seats will keep you warm and dry in all but the worst of the weather.

Whether sipping cocktails in our VIP pod or catching up with family over dinner. We have allocated tables for walk-in customers, however advanced booking is recommended to avoid disappointment.
