    An absolutely outstanding experience. Everything was just perfect. I celebrated my birthday with my Mum and sisters (belated birthday treat), with the most fabulous Afternoon Tea at Searcys. We were a table of 8 and we all loved the delicate rosé wine that was served as well as the delicious sandwiches and cakes. The tea and food were unlimited and topped up on request at no additional cost which I taught wad a nice touch. The venue, the setting, the views over London all priceless. Best Afternoon Tea experience to date. Can't wait for a return visit!

    Easy to reach. Building is iconic, you just need to look up. Once in you will need ID, passport, licence etc. You pass through airport like security before heading to lifts. Amazing views from any direction. Food tasted really good.

    I went here a few days ago and had an absolutely marvelous time! I made a reservation at the bar to celebrate mother’s day and my mom visiting London - and I am so glad I did! We had an incredible time with gorgeous views (sunset and London at night). Our server, Mateusz, absolutely made our evening! He was incredibly kind and attentive, offered to take our photo, and even brought out a small treat for us in celebration of mother’s day! He drastically elevated our experience - we would not have had such a lovely time without him :) Great bar, incredible views, and amazing service!

    Excellent opportunity to spend a bit of time at the top of a building you can't just walk in and visit. Wanted to go to top and see views and wasn't disappointed. Easy booking service and was contacted with information to make visit easier and to ensure my booking was confirmed. Deposit of £15pp was fine and it was credited to my bar bill, so paid for at least 4 drinks in advance. Not the cheapest at £7 for a bottle of beer but it's a out the experience and the views plus it's not that dear compared to central London venues at ground level. Was a bit quiet when I visited so could imagine a lot more atmosphere when full. Service was first class. Our servers were amazing, friendly, attentive and polite. Really enjoyed the visit.

    We went ro Iris bar at the very top of the building. The service was wonderful, the drinks were delicious and the views spectacular. We only had a nibble (portion of truffle fries) but they were great. Affordable relative to the location. Will definitely go again especially when family from out of town are visiting.
