Dined here as a party of 6, my dad and I left for 15 minutes to attend a work matter. Upon our return my dad (late 50s) was refused entry. We both started laughing assuming it was a joke. However the miserable stern faces of the door staff failed to relax. Yes this was really happening, a venue we had... More

We went for an early lunch. It's a great view and the food is varied, well thought out and is reliable. The service as always was attentive and friendly. Great lunch venue in a great location.

Have never had a disappointing day/evening at Madison. It is by far the best rooftop bar in London. Great value for money, service is second to none and all the staff are so welcoming and accommodating. The food is outstanding, one of the best meals I have had. I haven't eaten at Madison for a few months now and menus... More

I went there for dinner on my birthday, they were very thoughtful and gave me a birthday card and a ice-cream with a mini fireworks next to it as a gift. My friend and I ordered scallops baked in the shell (12 pounds per each) for starters, which tasted excellent! fresh scallops with very good seasoning. For main course, we... More

We had a great dinner at Madison, the food was delicious, the service was great as well. It was my husby's birthday, so they had one of these Happy Birthday dessert plates and a small firework - which is much appreciated, it is going an extra mile. However, as I was booking the table online, in the notes I specifically... More

I booked part of the bar area at Madison's for a 30th Birthday celebration. Right from the initial contact with my host (Freya Parsons) the venue couldn't do enough to ensure that the night ran smoothly for this rather hastily arranged event. Freya couldn't do enough to ensure that all bases were covered and no level of detail was missed.... More

A nice bar with great views that really do take your breath away. Perfect location for a marriage proposal. 😉 Reasonably priced drinks too. Had two vodkas and cokes which came to £13. Was a bit stunned and confused to see someone being breathalysed and refused entry. Can someone explain this policy? Overall, I would go again.

The best thing about Madisons is the views out of the windows. The service was excellent. The food average. Food and drink reasonably priced. The worst thing about Madisons is that the sofas are far too low!!

We met a friend here as he said it was the best view In London. He wasn't wrong. What a lovely view and space to have an out door drink. My wife's heavily pregnant and one of the members of staff made sure she was comfortable and brought her an extra pillow! Very pleased. Will definitely return.

This Bar is amazing stunning view of London. Went in November and the heaters kept the outside area warm. Great Porn Star Cocktail and not as expensive as I would expected for the location.

Neighbourhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
