Perched high on the 8th floor of OXO Tower on London’s South Bank, OXO Tower Brasserie affords sensational views across London and the Thames from its 250-foot terrace and dining area. The informal setting has an infectious buzz, with live music from an extensive line-up of jazz musicians adding an extra dimension to the experience.

With a state-of-the-art open-plan kitchen, head chef Keir Barry serves up modern British dishes with bold flavours. Enjoy grilled spring chicken served with pepper gorgonzola butter, or roasted cod with caramelised onion chorizo chutney and padron pepper butter beans. Many meat dishes are cooked over charcoal on the josper grill, creating a rich BBQ flavour that is perfect for al fresco dining.

An excellent cocktail list accompanies the menu, and unique to the Brasserie, ‘Not Afternoon Tea’ is a must-try experience for those who enjoy a sweet treat with a difference. A selection of exotic desserts includes apricot frangipane, thyme pannacotta, and green tea cake.

Offering incredible views,and live music every evening and on weekend lunchtimes, OXO Tower Brasserie in London sits 8 minutes’ walk from Southwark Tube Station.

    Waiter was very slow when taking orders for food and drinks. Water was not refilled unless asked to. Views were lovely and food was ok. Bar was much nicer to sit in than the brasserie.
    Overall - ok

    I have dined in the oxo restaurant before but this was my first time in the brasserie. Unfortunately I was not overly impressed with the menu choices. There is an open kitchen so you can see the chefs working. Service was excellent as you would expect. Decor is modern, views across the river lovely.

    Very good view. No table cloth, that makes it look cheaper than it is. And it is not. Overall 7/10

    All 3 courses were amazing - a good size and very very tasty. Malbec from Chile was sensational.

    We went to the OXO Brasserie as a belated birthday celebration for my friend. As a lunchtime dining experience, it could not be surpassed! From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, the service was superb. The food was joy and, both in the bar and in the restaurant, we had a lovely table overlooking the river. I know the OXO Brasserie had no involvement in the weather but even that was fantastic. Came home on a cloud and would certainly recommend to anyone.

    The view is great but not great enough to make up for odd food, over-intrusive service, over-crowded bar, brasserie tables too close together and over-pricing. It's a sort of middle class mecca where people feel they have to go because it's what the middle classes do on Sundays in London.

    Lovely lunch experience in the brasserie. The management were very accommodating to my online request and located us by the main window with a river view. The food was excellent and beautifully presented. The service was warm and friendly. Great location for a lunch especially for more informal occasions.
