Work starts tomorrow on the new roof garden at the Conqueror. This will involve the installation of a spiral staircase in the corner furthest from the door and the laying of astroturf on the roof itself. There will, hopefully, be room for four tables, plus a patio heater for when it gets chilly later in the evenings. Drinks can be ordered by speaking tube and served via a dumb waiter, negating the need to keep running up and down the stairs. I hope to have this all up and running by the time the weather improves which, judging by the way it's looking, should be sometime in 2017.
