A big hit with the Guardian, Menier Chocolate Factory showcases gourmet European dishes in a ‘seductively cool and atmospheric’ setting. Housed in a converted former factory, this theatre-cum-restaurant and bar maintains its edgy industrial vibe.

From casual daytime snacks through to refined chef’s recipes, the Menier menu offers a diverse selection. Alongside sumptuous sharing platters piled high with fresh, natural produce, Menier restaurant favourites include chicken supreme with polenta chips & roasted peppers, or the hand-pressed signature burger with all the trimmings.

Paying tribute to its cocoa-based origins, decadent chocolate desserts at Menier include the famous chocolate platter, or gooey brownie with rich chocolate sauce. An accomplished wine list and chilled international beers complement the award-winning food at Menier in London.

One of London’s most eclectic and arty restaurants, Menier features on-trend reclaimed décor, including timber beams, bare brickwork and exposed pipes. London Bridge stations are a 6-minute walk away.

    Very cosy and appealing spac - good lighting etc. The menu was varied and the food was good but.......I was very disappointed that the chef could not offer an alternative gravy that was GF to go with my meal. I chose liver and bacon, and it was delicious, but it was a dish that was supposed to have gravy and was less appealing without's unusual these days for a restaurant not to be able to provide a GF alternative when requested, so I think this is something the Chocolate Factory should seriously consider.

    What a lovely place for a bit of pre or post theatre dining. The food was delicious with good choices available with the option of a set menu too. The veggie options were interesting, not just the usual offerings. Price was very reasonable and the service and dining staff were really friendly. Highly recommended.

    This was the first time my friend and I had dined at the Menier and we thoroughly enjoyed the total experience! The service was very good and the staff extremely helpful and friendly. I enjoyed the mains of bubble & squeak and my friend had the burger and chips - both excellent. We shared a Boston Cream Pie and a good bottle of red - and all of that was followed by a first-class performance of Barnum - a great night out!

    We loved the look of the restaurant when we arrived. Very trendy and rustic- possibly French inspired! My husband and my son ordered the burgers which they thoroughly enjoyed along with the rustic fries. However my eldest son and I ordered the tagliatelle and meatballs which was sadly undercooked but nevertheless very tasty. The wine was very nice and we couldn't fault the service.

    The place is great, im so glad i have found it. The food was excellent, i recommend clam chowder and (massive) t bone steak. The special raspberry fizz for valentines was superb. Staff is super helpful and polite. And the show was fantastic. If you have opportunity-book it straight away. You will not regret it!!!
