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.

    This was our first experience of The Rooftop St James so went with an open mind. We had an amazing time, the food and drink was lovely and the time flew by. I have recommended the venue to our company for private dining and will definitely go back on our next visit to London. Karim and the whole team made our experience one we will no forget in a hurry.

    It was pleasant. the service wasn't the best and could have been more attentive.

    Open rooftop spaces are rare in London, but on a balmy summer evening they're a real treat. The food was very good and well presented. Service was slightly slow but others might have called it unhurried. As the evening cooled, heaters & a partly closed roof kept us comfortable. The restaurant area lacks views over London, although there are drinks areas that do have them. The volume of the piped music was about right.

    Amazing place, good attentive staff offering a good experience to the customer.
    I was there with my wife and 6 other friends to celebrate a birthday. We couldn't have chosen a better place...
    A really lovely place.

    The gentleman who “greeted”us on the ground floor was unnecessarily abrupt, some may say rude. Perhaps there should be a sign at the entrance saying “please wait here to be attended”. The lady who took over from the gentleman was polite and helpful. The views from the restaurant are stunning. Perhaps a few more tables could have shade.
    The tapas type food was really excellent. I would strongly recommend the tuna but all the main dishes were good.
    My wife had one of the desserts, I think it was called a selection of mochi, which was very disappointing and unappetising.
    All in all a few small disappointments but overall a very pleasant lunch in a superb location.

    the view wasnt good from the dining room, which was rather cold. But the staff were lovely and turned on some heating, and the food was very interesting and extremely good. The caramel and miso icecream was particularly lovely. And we enjoyed our coffee in the half open bar with the very thoughtful blankets on the back of each seat.

    Unfortunately, we were not able to have the complete lunch as the service was so slow and we had a theatre booked. The manager very kindly offered us free drinks but we didn’t have the time so reduced our bill. The food was lovely we really enjoyed what we had, and the view amazing.
