This outdoor terrace at the Bloomsbury Hotel looks like it will work well whatever the weather – it's covered and heated, and its good-looking interior goes heavy on the flora all year round. It feels a mile away from the Great Russell Street traffic around the corner.
The focus is on cocktails, with crowd-pleasing classics present and correct. There's an interesting selection of non-alcoholic cocktails too, made in conjunction with the Rare Tea Company. Expect options such as a Mintea Collins (lemongrass tea, ginger, apple, pear and Fever-Tree soda water) and a Berry Warming (rooibos tea, pomegranate juice, spiced blackberry and raspberry shrub, almond syrup and marmalade).
A short food menu features dishes such as grilled tiger prawns with harissa aioli and lime, and arancini with wild mushroom, black truffle and mozzarella. Keep an eye out for afternoon tea, too.

An al fresco indoor/outdoor dining experience in the heart of central London - a true escape from all the hustle and bustle of Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Circus. I'd highly recommend the scallops for lunch!
This is the most beautiful restaurant with an outdoor terrace I've ever been in London ! The place is so cosy, so warm so lovely ! Food and service are outstanding too !
A unique option in central London. Beautiful surroundings, delicious food/drinks and great atmosphere. I've been in winter and summer so have been able to enjoy in the different seasons.
the atmosphere is amazing, and the food is great! there isnt a prettier little place in all of Holborn!
Beer glasses are very important. A cool, crisp lager can be ruined by the wrong glass, too big, too small or most commonly too thick. Picky, moi? The Dalloway Terrace at the Bloomsbury gets it spot on and my bottle of Meantime London Lager went down a treat. Everyone else was far more sophisticated than me and went for cocktails, all seemed very happy. A great find.
Something tells me this may become a summertime favourite. The terrace is in three sections. Top level enclosed yet with an open, airy feeling - and a retractable roof. Middle section , open-air with umbrellas just inviting sunshine. But the real find for me in the lower tier bar. Feels live a winegrowers cave in Southern France. A place to drink a beer or a glass of wine , and forget the time. Nice !
I have just had a "love at first sight" experience.
This place looks amazing.
Not at all what you would expect in a London hotel , and the truth is you would never know its part of a hotel if you sneak in via the rather covert street entrance onto the terrace.
Its just off Great Russell Street, behind The Dominion Theatre (off Tottenham Court Road) and about two blocks from The British Museum. Part of what the posh people call Fitzrovia , but gloriously close to SOHO and the edgier parts of town.
I can't claim to have eaten here, as I popped in for a drink - and that's where I made the real discovery.
The Terrace is nice, and will make a fabulous summer hangout - but the sunken bar is a treasure.
I simply loved it. I am almost anxious in writing a review since I want to keep it all to myself.
