Christmas Rooftop Oasis, London
If you find yourself in Central London on the run up to Christmas, my condolences and god speed.
You’ll be thrilled to know I’ve found you the ultimate little retreat.
A festive hideaway, up on the roof, far away from the hoards below.
Escape… To Mac & Wild!
Snuggle up, get cosy, breathe!
A little haven of trees, just fir you.
Just be sure to wrap up warm.

Stolen from my other half to wear over snuggly jumpers
Be sure to have a look around, peek over the edge, visit the bar, take some pics.
Find a nook and get cosy!
And if at all possible, book a shed before you go.
They are delightful!
And a shed load of fun.
Full of games, trinkets and knick knacks.
And hot water bottles.
It would seem I don’t go to restaurants any more unless they have hot water bottles!
Hygge’s what we’re calling it now, right?
Hot toddy’s and mulled negronis only add to the experience.
We shared an excellent starter of salmon and a side of honeyed sausages.
And followed it up with something dainty and light.
“The Veni-Moo” – Beef patty, venison patty, cheese, béarnaise sauce, caramelised onions, pickles, candied bacon and a brioche bun.
“The Christmas Burger” – Confit fried turkey, venison stuffing, brie, cranberry sauce, truffle bread sauce, candied bacon & a brioche bun.
With chips, more truffled bread sauce and dips (get the béarnaise!)
And pumpkin with chestnuts, kale and thyme butter for the token vegetarian of the bunch.
One helluva feast that deserved walking off around the rooftop.
Time for one more quick drink?
Snug as a hygge bug in a rug.
Book in online here and escape the madness on the streets below.
Bring your own Christmas playlist (there are speakers in the hut), a few of your favourite people and make an afternoon of it!
Christmas shopping is best done online anyway, here’s what to get if you’re feeling lost.
