Every year the roof terrace above Selfridges is transformed with a new theme. The latest incarnation, Vintage Salt, is inspired by ‘a Cornish fishing village’, with a menu comprising of grills, salads and an elegant afternoon tea menu.
If you’re looking for an opportunity to escape the streams of shoppers and tourists on Oxford Street, then this is a good place to stop for a drink and light bite. The best views are in the restaurant, however the bar serves cocktails and a special of G&Tea in the Afternoon (a gin and tonic sorbet floating on the top, blended perfectly with cold earl grey tea, lemon and gin). Sipping from a cup and saucer doesn’t feel out of place in this twee British setting. If the sun is out, for some funs you can also order a Champagne popsicle for just £7.
