The Merrywell, Southbank

Possibly one of our favourite restaurants with the jaw-dropping view is The Merrywell. It is a rooftop bar that is in the perfect location right in the centre of the city! We recommend booking a table in the evening so you really make the most of the view while the sun goes down and the city lights up. The view itself is a very good reason to take a trip, however, The Merrywell also serves some delicious classic food from classic Mac & Cheese to a hearty burger.
