Visit 360 Cafe


The 360 Café is open 7 days a week from 10am-5pm and we do not take bookings for the Café or Rooftop Terrace. The Rooftop Terrace is available for private events hire year-round.

Clifton Observatory’s 360 glass café offers indoors and outdoors seating, overlooking Clifton Down and providing impressive views of the City of Bristol and Clifton Suspension Bridge.

We invite visitors to indulge in a variety of locally-sourced refreshments while they enjoy the panoramic views of the surrounding area.

“A comfortable and friendly stop at the top of the hill where we enjoyed hot chocolates and pumpkin spiced buns to warm up after a chilly walk over the bridge. We were tempted by the pimped up hot chocolates too!! Really friendly staff.”


Our Products

At the 360 café, visitors can enjoy a variety of products, from bagels, toasted croissants and locally baked cakes to hot drinks. Please ask our staff for the selection of the day.

The café is known for its indulgent hot chocolates. Toppings include whipped cream, caramel and chocolate sauce, sprinkles, chocolate flakes, s’mores, and cookies.

“Such a lovely place with great and indulgent hot chocolate. The staff that was working 26 November around closing were amazing and so kind. Really made the experience even better!”


Rooftop Seating

Our fantastic newly renovated rooftop terrace is open daily for visitors to enjoy food and drinks from the café along with the spectacular panoramic views of Bristol.

“We visited here on Wednesday November 9th. The ladies were really friendly and helpful. I had the biscotti hot chocolate with Kahlua. It was lovely. Thank you for making the start of my day so lovely. We sat on the roof top and the views of the Clifton bridge were amazing. I would definitely recommend. Not brave enough to go down the steps into the cave.”
