Willows on the Roof

Temporarily Closed


Located on the rooftop of John Lewis, Oxford Street, Willows on the Roof is the botanical retreat for sipping cocktails and indulging in food courtesy of Kitchen Ventures - all while admiring the 360° scenic views across central London.

A 4,000-square-foot botanical nirvana - covered in greenery and lights - this venue is a feast for all senses. With indoor and outdoor drinks and dining booking options, you'd never know you were located in the middle of Central London. For the cooler weather, there's even hut bookings available, and winter domes for guests to dine under the stars. For those that want a more exclusive visit, their VIP experiences include a semi-private sofa area, a varied special menu and a button to order drinks. Willows on the Roof also offers exclusive private hire for those of you wanting to plan an exceptional event. 

Their vast array of beverage options range from the well-known classic Old Fashioned to the more exotic Peach and Kiwi Martini. Their small plates menu offers a more modern dining option. You don't need to stick to one plate though, as this menu has been designed for sharing.
