Our Iconic Roof Terrace

The stylish rooftop terrace is, of course, a famous Cambridge landmark, but the tempting knock-out cocktails, lychee or passion fruit martini’s, blushing Russians, summer G and T’s and many others also command a well-justified attention. The Roof Terrace is available for Private and Semi-Private Hire.
