Culpeper Hotel Rooftop, London

'Farm' to table

'Farm' to table

Thea Rowe

The Culpeper is an unpretentious pub in East London with a roof garden which grows its own vegetables which they serve on their modern menu. They claim that every single dish on the menu will feature something from that garden. A London rooftop which is very much ‘farm to table’.
The meat and fish are all sustainably sourced and there are a good selection of French wines, which the waiters are very knowledgeable on. There are a few rustic tables parked between climbing vines, or benches to perch on beside planters flourishing with herbaceous life, however they no longer take bookings for the rooftop, it’s on a first come first serve basis.
Whilst this isn’t the largest rooftop in London it is one of the more simple, and delivers in the same way the ‘fancier’ rooftop restaurants do. The food really was delicious and the views as wonderful as expected, who wouldn’t want to natter the evening away with friends on top of a London rooftop farm on Commerical Street!
