Great view, excellent drinks and service.
It’s already the second time I’ve been to this rooftop and will definitely come back again.
Would definitely recommend this place.

With London's iconic skyline as a backdrop, The Rooftop St James is one of the city's finest rooftop bars, offering visitors breathtaking views, luxurious style, and a menu of creative cocktails and international light bites.

The Rooftop St James menu is fronted by a celebrated cocktail list, expertly crafted by some of London's top mixologists, and taking inspiration from the city itself. Try the Soho Sunset made with bathtub Gin and Taittinger Champagne, or the Lords, Ladies and Commoners with pistachio-infused vodka. There is also a vast spirit menu, featuring single malt whiskies and premier tequilas, as well as spirits from small London producers.

To complement the eclectic drinks, The Rooftop St James in Trafalgar Square serves inventive Asian small plates. Seared beef tataki is matched with truffle, sweet daikon and shisho, while steamed buns come filled with pulled pork belly and shiitake mushrooms. From the grill there are lamb cutlets and black cod, while the dessert menu finishes things off with caramel miso ice cream, and yuzu and lime meringue tart.

Offering stunning views of Nelson's Column, The Rooftop St James is a luxurious restaurant in London that is just 2 minutes' walk from Charing Cross Tube Station.

    A small group came for some early evening cocktails to celebrate a birthday. The weather on the street was freezing and blowing a gale, this did not bode well for a rooftop drink, but up on the roof there wasn’t even the merest hint of a breeze and the freezing temperatures were kept away by heaters and blankets. The views were amazing and so were the drinks. Would definitely come back again.

    Booked for drinks on the rooftop terrace. Terrace was intimate and well heated. You got blankets to keep you cosy and we had amazing views of Trafalgar Square and some of London’s best monuments - The Eye, Shard, Trafalgar Square, the Coliseum theatre. Cocktails were excellent and service was just the right side of attentive. My friend and I shared the pork belly Bao buns - delicious!

    The staff was very friendly, our table was ready at the time of the booking. The place is very luxurious, the view is amazing and the service was impeccable.

    Unfortunately, it was not great.
    It somehow felt it did not match the standard,certainly the service level does not match the prices
    I found the Italian waiter, a young guy, being not too professional, just like a guy form the bistro next door, sorry if that sounds rude.
    Despite that I did not know till next day that he was rude to my girlfriend who was left for 10 min alone while I went for a smoke outside, it happened during my absence.
    The wine I have ordered with price tag above £30 was on taste more like a cheap bottle from Lidl shop.
    Overall, sadly I did not enjoyed it therefore I won't be coming back

    We booked this for evening drinks before Christmas. The service and the drinks were brilliant and the view was spectacular. It was a lovely way to kick off Christmas and I will definitely go back.

    Booked a table for 4 people on Wednesday 19th December to celebrate Christmas. We were looking forward to the experience but unfortunately found the waiting staff miserable & rude.They made us sit on a dark table in the corner with no heater while it was spitting with rain even though there were spare tables in the middle area with warm patio heaters and an awning covering. When we stood up near the heater to shelter from the rain & cold the staff said we were blocking the area and were not allowed to stand due to healthy and safety. We were charged £52 for a bottle of Prosecco but had to leave it half empty as we were made to feel unwelcome.
