Found on the 8th-floor of London’s iconic OXO Tower, the OXO bar offers an inspirational cocktail list and stunning views of the River Thames. Enjoy your drinks in the sunshine on the OXO Tower Bar terrace or watch the city sparkle from the comfort of the bar as the nights draw in.

Headed up by Bar Manager Paulius Patumsis, the OXO Tower Bar presents an ever-evolving list of cocktails, making use of the most innovative techniques and products on the market. Sample creative house mixes like the Penicillin – a warming mix of Dewar’s scotch with lemon, honey, ginger and a splash of Laphroaig, or the Good Queen Bess with gin and raspberry ripple. World wines and fine spirits are also available, as well as a list of craft beers cherry-picked from small-batch breweries.

To complement the drinks list, the innovative bar menu features some great snacking options including fried squid and parmesan aioli, or sweet potato wedges with cucumber and dill yoghurt and a sweet chili dressing. For something a little heartier, opt for the express lunch menu and tuck into a juicy burger with chips or keep it traditional and enjoy fish and chips with tartare sauce. And for something on the weekend mornings, book in and enjoy a relaxed brunch with choices from waffles, bacon and maple syrup, to a London breakfast.

One of the capital’s most sought-after bars, the OXO Tower Bar in London is just 8 minutes’ walk from Southwark and Waterloo and 10 minutes’ walk from Blackfriars Tube station.

    Lovely location, service very good. I had lunch with a friend, we were both not impressed with the food. I had a burger which was a bit dry, but edible. My friend had fish and chips which she found was a big puff of batter with a very small amount of fish inside, what fish there was was nice. Bit disappointing overall. Maybe just our bad luck.

    Service was faultless - professional, attentive but unobtrusive.
    And the food we ordered was beautifully cooked and presented. Would recommend.

    We didn't eat but enjoyed the wine

    This was our third visit to the OXO Tower - unfortunately it was disappointing. A loud and rowdy table of eight was ignored by the staff so they intruded on everyone's enjoyment. We didn't get offered the dessert menu nor asked if we wanted extra drinks.
    The view was (obviously) good!

    Great food, did the express lunch, Prosecco was great. Was not impressed with the choice of wine which came with the meal, so that would be my only criticism, you should offer more choice of wine for the express lunch. Service great.

    We opted for the Fish & Chips and Burger & Chips, both were very well presented and tasted delicious. Were a little disappointed with the chips as they were too hard and crunchy. Great atmosphere and staff very friendly. Would definitely visit again, especially in the evening to sit outside with the view over the river as recommended by one of your staff.
