After a successful run during the summer, Pergola on the Roof is back. On top of the old BBC car park in Wood Lane, west London, it features food stands run by a selection of top London restaurants and a fully stocked bar. Burgers from Patty and Bun and posh kebabs courtesy of Le Bab are being served up, while there’s also Scandinavian treats from Snaps & Rye and Gunpowder’s delicious Indian dishes. Pergola on the Roof’s makeover for the festive season means this rooftop venue is now fully-covered and heated to keep the winter chill at bay. It’s open Wednesdays to Fridays at 6pm -11pm, Saturdays from 12pm-11pm and Sundays from 12.30pm-9.30pm, and is running until December 23.
