The Resident: London's best new terraces for summer drinks

Pergola on the Roof, Television Centre

Pergola on the Roof, west London’s new rooftop dining experience, is set 170-feet-high up, underneath a beautiful canopy of evergreen ivy, wisteria and bougainvillea, set against white washed walls. Designed as a vision of the Mediterranean, it’s a piece of sunny European escapism serving up delicious rotisserie chicken, pork belly to ribs, scallops, veal and mackerel courtesy of pop-ups by Rabbit, Salt Yard, Patty & Bun and Lecoq. The central bar stocks an array of rose, whites, reds, bubbles, ciders, beers and cocktails, plus there’s a roaming drinks trolley should you find a trip to the bar too bothersome! Open until Sunday 29 August 2016.
