Restaurant description

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.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    A most enjoyable experience all round. So lovely to come out of the theatre and have dinner on the premises. All the staff were welcoming and friendly and so attentive throughout the meal. Service was excellent with attention paid to the detail of our order. The restaurant has great character with vibes from another era. The meal was fantastic from the onion soup, onion and bacon tart and the Coq au Vin, which all four of us selected, to the variety of desserts. My only complaint every time is the sparce amount of chocolate sauce with the brownie! Come on! this was a chocolate factory therefore the chocolate sauce should be flowing - please. For our friends it was their first visit and they were enchanted by the whole experience and I am sure will visit again. Certainly we will as we are regulars to the shows as well and we just love being there..

    We chose the menu devised for The Boyfriend.The savoury tart to start with was tasty. My coq au vin was disappointing with one very large chicken breast which should have been cut smaller when raw to absorb the flavours. The rest was tiny bones and the button onions were almost raw as if added at the last minute. The themed meal we had before Fiddler on the Roof was definitely better. My friend had the sea bream and was happier. The service was excellent however.

    Very good food and ambience but annoyed at the 'compulsory' 12.5% service charge

    First time we've eaten here. Nice ambience. Had The Boy Friend menu.Very reasonable price. Onion soup was liked as was the bacon tarte, although that was slightly on the minimalist side for this reviewer. Coq au vin went down well ( an extra spud or two would have been nice.} Poire Helene was very good. Excellent Argentinian Malbec. Was service 12.5% ? My host thought it a bit steep.
