Pergola on the Roof


When spring comes to town so do the roof top bars. Today I had a peek at the brand spanking new Pergola in the roof in Shepherd's Bush.

We couldn't resist checking this one out as they had lured us to this place with a free drink. (You just need to sign up to their newsletter by the way. )

The bar sits on top of the abandoned television centre across the street from Westfield shopping centre. There are lifts, but today these decided to give up the ghost. There was no queue, so I headed upstairs.

Still panting from climbing the fourteen flight of stairs, I stepped onto a wide open and bright space. It was like I had set foot into a garden somewhere in southern Europe. The garden was surrounded by white washed walls covered with bright murals. The bar area with communal style tables and benches was sitting under a flower covered pergola and the atmosphere was buzzing. It all felt very Mediterranean.

Lots of tables had a reserved sign on them, but I managed to find one next to the jeu de boules court.

Besides the well stocked drinks bar, there are four food stalls. You can choose from tapas at Salt Yard, burgers from Patty and Bun, chicken from Le Coq and a variety of dishes from The Shed.

We had our free intro drink, although I still don't know what it was. We also tried some green pea hummus from The Shed and the courgette flower with honey and goat's cheese from the Salt Yard.

We had another drink before the windy London weather jerked us back into English reality and we decided to head home. I will wait for better weather for my next visit, as I am sure it will be awesome(er) with some sunshine.
