“Stunning views of the City from the roof terrace” add glamour to this 10th floor eyrie overlooking Finsbury Square, and with a large outside terrace. The cooking is decent, service “affable” and “people-watching those attracted by Insta-friendly high-end hotel restaurants is an added bonus – or detraction depending on your mood!”.

“A pleasant location overlooking the City” is the headline attraction at this 10th-floor eyrie on Finsbury Square, which has a big outside terrace. “The food is fine but not very inspiring, and service can be a bit away with the fairies” – maybe try it out for brunch.

“The rooftop views are amazing” from this 10th floor perch on Finsbury Square, which boasts a big outside terrace. Critics feel “you pay for it” when it comes to food though, and argue “it’s better as a bar” or for quieter mealtimes like breakfast.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
