A quirky and contemporary bar and restaurant by the Tate Modern in Southwark, The Refinery offers a wealth of imaginative cocktails alongside a modern international menu. Street level tables and deckchairs offer relaxed, open-air dining and drinking.

Kaleidoscopic offerings at The Refinery ranges from British classic beer-battered fish and chips, to prawn lollipops and a wagyu burger with blue cheese. Succulent steaks are served with chips, watercress and a choice of sauce, while a breakfast and brunch menu offers a variety of options from around the world.

A 30-page drinks list at The Refinery in London provides a spectrum of offerings, from fairy-tale inspired cocktails, like the ‘Candy Shop’ blend of Tanqueray gin, rhubarb and custard liqueur, to hearty draught beers. Chunky, factory-style pipes line The Refinery ceiling, soaring above chunky wooden tables and a sleek drinks bar which spans the entire dining space.

The Refinery is just a 5-minute walk from The Globe Theatre, and a 7-minute walk from Southwark Tube Station.

    Nice atmosphere but vegan/vegetarian options pathetic. Who can sustain themselves on salad?!

  • ((((( 24 April 2016 by Philipp Ertl from London Borough of Southwark

    Very nice place, genuinely friendly waiters and very attentive service as always, good quality food at good prices. The very only thing I would criticise is that there aren't enough vegetarian/vegan options.

    Very friendly staff, even when they were rushed off their feet!
    The majority of the group went for the traditional Christmas meal....really succulent turley!

  • (((** 2 November 2015 by Tom Reeves from London Borough of Southwark

    Great food and service

  • ((*** 3 April 2015 by Frances Hopewell-smith from London

    Staff very friendly and welcoming. Venue fun and attractive. Burger good but Thai red curry was very poor. I would recommend it but would advise careful food choice

  • ((((( 11 February 2015 by Stephen Motion from London Borough of Lambeth

    What a great restaurant!! The interior was really well designed and the way in which the meals were presented was really fun and quirky - I.e small copper pan for the gravy and each vegetable served in its own oven tin.

    Place was quite empty

    Food was OK. Drink was OK

    Watch out for their pet mouse. He's fast and obviously saves the cost of cleaning the floor as he can be seen running back to his mouse hole with food for his family

    First we named him Mickey but this was not appropriate as he's got big ears. Nah more like Speedy Gozales!

    Eventually we were engrossed in a game of spot the mouse. Its the best floor show since the Moulin Rouge

    The best place for the show is the booth near the street as Speedy lives in his mouse hole underneath. Our tip for enhancing the floor show experience is to accidentally
    drop some juicy treats for Speedy and then wait. Need a little patience but the wait is worth it. Gone in half a second.

    The staff seemed quite proud of their pet when we asked if they were aware of him.

    Altogether a memorable experience 9/10
