    Service was appalling. No vibe from the staff and the waiters kept bumping into our table or even me with no apology or recognition. Drinks are pricey for the portion but food was pretty good. Views on the rooftop are amazing!!

    Rooftop at The Light BrigadeResponded 6 days agoThank you for your feedback on your experience. It helps us continually improve. I apologise for the staff not acknowledging that they bumped into you on & I will be sure to discuss this with the team. We pride ourselves on exceptional customer service but unfortunately during these times we have had to employ a few inexperienced new members that we are working closely with to get them up to the standard that we are known for. I do hope that we'll see you back again one day soon.

    In my opinion the best parmi, love the view and decoration of the rooftop but nights are already too cold to have heathers out of gas, I was on a very winter outfit and I freeze to death. Also, some music would be great for the environment and vibe.

    The rooftop is not always open. Arrived to be told they were not opening due to rain the previous day. It was not raining the evening we wanted. Even though I had a booking for a group the venue did not call to advise me. When booking make sure you have a plan B

    Rooftop was never opened, despite sunny weather. No effort to accommodate us at all. Drinks were late. Staff ignored us. One in particular, was unprofessional and extremely rude. I've worked in hospitality, but honestly that was without a doubt the worst treatment by staff I have ever encountered. Real shame, for what usually is a decent pub.

    Excellent view. Good service and food. Value meals in 2 for 1 offer. The salmon ceviche was very small. Our table was next to the heat exhaust from the kitchen and next to a brick wall so it was very hot.

    Very special spot for a cocktail or champagne. Open air and limited numbers helps so not overcrowded. Food is okay, maybe a bit more creative and add items that aren't carbohydrate loaded. Will definitely go back as good options for meeting friends on other floors.

    Beautiful view of the city from the rooftop, only bad thing was it was cold and all the bartenders got themselves a blanket but failed to ask patrons if they wanted the heaters on or a blanket as well. Besides that food was great and drinks were good too. Definitely will be coming here again !!

    Our booking had been changed from 2 hours to 1.5 hours which made it hard to get dinner finished but the manager was great. But this is the COVID world we live in. The manager was great he found us some space below to have a few post dinner drinks. My wife thought the pizza was some of the best she has had and we all had a really good night.
