Now serving Afternoon Tea every Sunday. Book and pay online below!

Barry’s only rooftop bar, serving the finest cocktails, wines and beers.


You can find Academy 297 on the rooftop of the Goodsheds. Experience relaxed vibes, sunsets with a drink in hand, maybe the occasional roof top party, all whilst taking in fantastic views.


During the Spring and Summer months 297 brings the outdoors indoors, with removable side panels making it the perfect open air bar to enjoy the warm evenings and the best sunsets. Autumn and Winter months are just as enjoyable, side panels back in place, with cosy fur throws and blankets to keep you warm under the twinkling fairy lights as you indulge in some of our premium drinks.


Meet you on the rooftop…
