The Queen of Hoxton


The Queen of Hoxton in Shoreditch has officially now re-opened its rooftop bar and kitchen, ready to host the bar's Film Club, which shows a wide variety of cinematic classics during the summer months.

Here you can find a equipped bar and an open barbecue grill style kitchen where the chefs cook the food in front of you, plus those all essential toilet facilities: a welcome relief considering that the garden is up four flights of stairs. The food available at the grill includes barbecue classics with a twist, including burgers, together with less conventional fare like half a piri-piri coated chicken and a regular rotation of fish specials.

On our visit to the roof terrace, the food was excellent, particularly the Aberdeen Angus burger, and comes with a side of salad and coleslaw. However, given that the menu starts at about £7, we found that some items were a bit pricey, especially when you can get a whole pizza downstairs for roughly the same price.

The atmosphere in the garden was fantastic, and in many ways resembled the beer garden of a village pub. A lot of effort has been made to make it a warm and welcoming space for people to relax, enjoy a beer, and watch the world go by, and this it certainly does.

All in all, the rooftop at the Queen of Hoxton is well recommended as a place to have a quick drink and meet up friends, or, if you wish, stay for longer and enjoy the city skyline and evening sunset (weather permitting, of course). It is also an excellent venue for a party and a booking service is available to cater for this.

So if you're in the area, check the roof top at the Queen of Hoxton out. You will be pleasantly surprised with what you find.
