Shepherds Bush is known for a few things (falafel, music), but it’s also where the Chelsea set go for a bit of rough. Found on top of the old BBC building near Shepherds Bush, Pergola On The Roof is incredibly pretty, like a cross between an open-air food court and a garden in California,. There’s even a colour wall for your social media pictures, for Christ’s sake. The food lineup’s very strong - tacos from Breddos, seafood from Bonnie Gull, and fancy French and Italian plates from 8 Hoxton Square. Watch out for the queue, as it can get pretty long at peak times.
Pergola On The Roof is permanently closed.
