We love The Forest Restaurant - eat here frequently - the atmosphere is always "buzzing" the good fresh and honest and the staff are delightful.

Perched atop Selfridge’s department store on Oxford Street, Forest is a London rooftop restaurant bringing sophisticated comfort food and seasonal cocktails to London.

The Forest menu is inspired by autumnal produce, offering an array of hearty dishes. Try the baked game meatballs with winter vegetable orzo, duck shepherd’s pie with autumn squash, or wild Highland roe deer fillet with kale and elderberry sauce.

Finish your meal with an apple and date pie or warming treacle sponge with whisky anglaise. Signature afternoon teas are served at Forest - Selfridges in London, along with autumn-inspired cocktails.

Forest - Selfridges Roof sits 8 minutes’ walk from Oxford Circus and Marble Arch Tube Stations.

    Very good risotto, lively, buzzy atmosphere. But the booking was for 1.30 and at 1.45 the table was "being cleaned'. No apology, just "please wait.'

    Staff are fairly rude and disinterested & the food is pretty average.
    The restaurant was empty when we arrived, yet the Maitre'd chose to give us the worst table in the house - the main busy walkway for staff & guests. On us asking to move, she rolled her eyes and gave us an equally bad table. As soon as she went back to her station, we moved ourselves to a better table.
    The Bloody Mary looked & tasted dull - no thought had gone in to it at all.
    The truffle chips were so heavily covered in truffle that it took away flavour from the rest of the meal.
    I won't be going back.

    Overall underwhelming. For a restaurant that has been there 2 years shocked that Selfridges sales associates, including other restaurant outlets did not know where the Forest was! Being told only been here a week shows staff orientation is lacking.

    The fact sent on run a round for 20 plus minutes to actually receive confirmation that it existed, took wrong elevator to 4th floor immediately adjacent to the express one. May be more helpful if the host stood outside the express elevator as opposed to riding it.

    Booked from California expected something special. Limited menu, lack of sides, naff coffee if you drink it black but CHEAP price points. My advise dine before you shop, somewhere like Granger and Co in Notting Hill!

    Service charge included so lack of attention or check backs.

    Frustrating & disappointing which detracted from enjoying an experience. But cheap and waste of a potentially awesome location.

    Lovely restaurant and food well presented and more importantly tasted great.

    Went for lunch on a Saturday in June 2016. It's a long thin strip of space on the top floor of selfridges. The store staff don't know how to get to it! They told us you went to the second floor. The entrance is slightly obscure via the kids area on the top floor, then walk up some steps to the roof.
    A nice enough area with a visible kitchen but restricted views of London. Tables quite close together. It was still busy at 3.30 pm when we arrived. A high level of noise, so not good for anyone hard of hearing.
    Good cafe food. Serving staff pleasant but not attentive and rather slow. We had a long wait between courses. Menu is interesting and food is good quality. We were 2 people and had starters and a main course, a 0.5L carafe of wine each and a bottle of water. Cost was £120 including service.
    We would go again. Make sure you book!

    We sat on the outside terrace and we asked to have something from the inside menu and the host refused to bring us 1 dish from the inside menu you have to try to be more flexible ..the host on our table was amazing very friendly however it's under staffed very slow to bring our orders and the other waiters were not properly trained ...
