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 OXO Tower menu favourites like 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.

    Very pleased with our lunch yesterday. I had requested a table near the window and that is what I got so thank you .

    Delicious cod with butter beans. House red rather strange though - thumbs down from all 3 diners. Great atmosphere and extremely friendly service.

    Overall a fun afternoon. Restaurant was busy and very buzzy. We shared all four of the not afternoon tea dishes and generally they were all good. Can't say the same about the cocktails that were offered alongside the dishes they were very disappointing and tasted medicinal.

    Even if I booked more than one month in advance, and we were only three people, they were not able to accommodate us in a quiet table close to the windows as requested in the reservation form. The restaurant was horribly noisy and we were hardly able to ear each other. No conversation was possible. Service was too quick and even if waiters were smiling and helpful it was obvious that they were rushing trying to kick you out of the restaurant as soon as possible. Unpleasant. No tablecloth. We have eaten à la carte. Food was nice, good wine list. Unfortunately with such a nice view and such a nice food I would seriously consider to improve the athmosfere.

    Our experience at the OXO Tower was awesome! The customer service was top notch, throughout the whole process from booking to being given our coats at the end everyone that dealt with us was great. The dessert with 'congratulations' written underneath was a every nice tough by the waitress.

    The food was great, and having scallops for the first time and certainly will not be my last. My girlfriend had the Sea bass which was also very delicious.

    The views were great and the lovely night skies were perfect for a lovely romantic meal.

    It was a lil' pricey, but in the end worth it.
