Vintage Salt_Bar View_Draft_March selfridgesRestaurateur Des McDonald will launch his third pop-up restaurant at Selfridges; On the Roof with Vintage Salt on May 1. Open for five months, Vintage Salt will kick off Selfridges’ ‘Great British Outdoors’ campaign. This British summer restaurant, bar and terrace is inspired by a Cornish fishing village, where diners can enjoy a unique British seaside dining experience high above the streets of London. The Drift Bar, located on the terrace, will have a separate entrance accessed via the Boardwalk which will be lined with nautical ropes guiding the way. A wooden beach hut will serve an extensive list of chilled reds, rose, white wine and champagne and the dedicated G&Tea bar will offer Gin cocktails. Guests can escape the sun in one of the two beach huts or enjoy a drink from the special sundowners menu on the terrace deckchairs while watching the sun go down.article-2102956-11CB4911000005DC-644_634x422 Starters from the Beech Oven menu include, a selection of oysters, earl grey smoked salmon, London particular fritters with Colman’s dressing and spiced tuna tartare served with avocado and pickled cucumber. Diners can then choose from an array of fish dishes including: lobster buttie with truffled fries, Camden Hells fish and chips and halibut fish finger sandwiches.
