Cheers, babes! Sip on our LEGENDARY tropical cocktails or opt for a thirst-quenchin’ range of beers, ciders & spirits – we’ve got something on tap for everyone on the roof.



Alongside ice-cold speciality cocktails and craft ales set to a soundtrack designed to get you dancing in your seats we’ll be serving up mouth-watering pizzas from Share a Slice. Not just a pretty pizza (these guys were trained in Naples by masters of the dough to make the perfect pizza) – this is socially good pizza, because for every pizza sold, Share A Slice donates one to feed those in need. Now THAT’S what we call feel-good food.

Our Share-A-Slice Pizzas can be made Gluten Free upon request, subject to availability. As our kitchen is small, there is risk of cross-contamination, if you have any concerns, please contact us directly.

Opening Hours

We are now closed until Spring 2023.


Do I need ID to enter?

We operate a Challenge 25 policy on the rooftop, so if you’re lucky enough to look under 25 years old, you will be asked to show your ID. Acceptable forms of ID to prove you are over 18 include a photo driving licence, a passport, a proof of age card, such as the PASS card from the national Proof of Age Standards Scheme.

Do you use plastic glasses?

Due to being located on a roof in a residential area of Peckham, sadly we are not permitted to serve our drinks in glassware. We are committed to removing single-use plastics from our venue. Our drinks are therefore served in reusable polycarbonate vessels.

I have a question about your comedy nights...

Awesome! We’d love to have you join us.

We do not manage ticketing for the events. You can find information and contact the Plosive team here:

If your question is related to our venue and how we host the comedy show, you can contact us via the widget on the bottom right.

Can I hire your bar for private use?

With enough notice, sure you can! Just contact us using the widget on the right with all the details.

Can under 18s enter?

Children under 18 years of age are welcome on the rooftop before 5pm. Please note that high chairs are not available.

How can I contact you?

Please note we do not manage late arrivals or last-minute cancellations via email.

You can email us via the widget on the bottom right of the screen.

Can I bring my dog?

Dogs are always welcome at Bussey #Wooftop Bar (see what we did there?)! We kindly ask that you ensure your pooch remains on a lead at all times and does not disrupt other guests.

What hours are you open?
We are now closed until Summer 2023.
Do you show football matches?

Unfortunately, we do not have screens in our bar, and so we will not be showing any matches.

Will I be charged if I cancel, am late, or don’t show up for my booking?

If you’re late, you don’t need to call ahead, your table will be held for as long as possible and we’ll see you when you get here!

If you don’t show up for your booking, are more than 30 minutes late, or cancel your booking with less than 48 hours’ notice, you will be charged a non-refundable fee per person. For more information, visit or email


Is there wheelchair access/a lift?

If you need the lift to go straight to the top, please let a member of staff know and we will assist you, otherwise, you can get out on the floor just below and head up the short final flight.

Do you have heaters?

Yes, we have a number of heaters on the rooftop!

Is there bike storage?

There are bike hoops covered by security cameras downstairs. Alternatively, Cycle Hub offers secure and covered parking, and locks at midnight (so your bike is safe overnight). You’ll find it next to Peckham Rye Station.

What happens to my booking if it rains?

You’ll have cover from the elements so you can carry on having fun! We do not cancel reservations in the event of rain unless in the event of dangerous weather.

Is it free to get in?

Yes – come on down! We accept walk-ins. To secure a table, we recommend making a reservation — bookings are free and you’ll be asked for card details at checkout. If you don’t show up for your booking, are more than 30 minutes late, or cancel your booking last-minute, you will be charged a non-refundable fee per person. For more information, visit or email
