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.

    Lovely ambience, lively service....this time I thought the food was of good value for money - £14 for an average (veggie) Thai curry?! Nevertheless, we will be back!

    Food was fine as always - although the gravy on the meatloaf left a lot to be desired

    Great food, excellent service and welcoming atmosphere. We had the Thai re vegetable curry and rhubarb and strawberry meringue pie, both of which were delicious. The service was very attentive and friendly without being over the top. Will definitely be back.

    It was quiet at the Menier Chocolate Factory the evening we went, compared to other times we have been when it has been packed. Our reception and all the staff were very friendly, and we were served rapidly. We had really excellent ribeye steak (no starters), in substantial quantities, and some sides, and much enjoyed it all. A good selection of wine by the glass too.

    Great location for the various attractions nearby. I was in a group of 3. In general, the food was good, though I had to send back my main only partially eaten because the quality of the meat was not good. The chef should really have checked this beforehand. My comments were graciously received by the staff who gave me a discount. The staff was friendly and efficient and, notwithstanding my problem, the food was good value for money.

    The service was excellent as was the food. Disappointed the smoked sausages were off the menu!!!!!

    Nice venue, Victorian semi-industrial setting unusual and appealling . Food generally disappointing. Soup was clearly over-microwaved, too hot, and a bit too salty. The risotto was too rich and creamy - Italians would never make a risotto like that, why do the English add cream to risotto, makes it too gloopy and heavy? Rhubarb tart for dessert nice but nothing special. Service was pleasant but generally a decidedly underwhelming food experience for such a nice venue, they are not making the most of their assets.
