Roxy Bar & Screen reviews



The Roxy Bar & Screen has matured and established itself in the three years since it quietly made itself known just south of the river. No frontage bling, just a subtle, almost something you would pass by facade, with 'Roxy' on a pillar just inside.

The staff are great as is the food, which has been through some changes and is sourced from local vendors and fresh as you'll ever get. Cocktails from heaven or an ice cold one - whatever your poison, you will not be disappointed.

It also has a seriously cool ambiance and the best film screening facilities I've ever come across in a bar. Stunning images, incredible sound and a run of such diverse screenings, there is always something for everyone at some point.

If you stop at Sainsbury's going south on Borough, you're short of a great night out; if you get as far as Costa, you've missed a great night out... Somewhere just between the two and you've hit upon it!

I'd been to this bar over a year ago and had a nice relaxed meal. However, I went last night and they have changed the menu to overpriced, small meze dishes and started charging £3 to watch the films. In addition, as soon as I had finished eating they told me to move to the front of the restaurant so someone could take my table to watch the film even though it wasn't to start for 30 minutes. Poor.

Agree with comments about the rudeness of the waiter/manager. Was made to queue to place my food order, which was taken in a very brusque manner, with the service charge added upfront. My protest of "we haven't had any service yet!" fell on deaf ears. Just another way to screw some money out of you. Quite an accusatory manner when asking if you've paid to see the film yet, too.

I was really shocked by the rudeness of the waiters here and found the place very unfriendly. Avoid.

We booked an area for a party - only to be told it hadn't been reserved. There was no apology or offer of any help for our large group. Service was just plain rude. Once we found seats we were then moved as a private screening had been booked for the evening. Avoid!

Nice at the back, very dark and snug. Drinks not too expensive. A tad too much chrome at the front of the bar. Nice loos though!

I liked it a lot but it could be better. The food I'm not so sure about.

Interesting concept. Unfortunately, a concept executed by cold and unwelcoming bar staff/management. This is a part of the life of a good pub. No life here.
