Excellent food and service - and views! It was my friend's birthday and they produced Happy Birthday plate with the candle on cue. I really can't praise the staff highly enough.

Found on the 8th floor of London’s iconic OXO Tower, OXO Tower Bar offers an inspirational cocktail list and stunning views of the River Thames. Guests can enjoy drinks in the sunshine on the terrace or watch the city sparkle from the comfort of the bar as the nights draw in.

Headed up by Bar Manager Paulius Patumsis, OXO Tower Bar presents an ever-evolving list of cocktails, making use of the most innovative techniques and products on the market. Sample creative house mixes include the Penicillin – a warming mix of Dewar’s scotch with lemon, honey, ginger and a splash of Laphroaig – and the South Bank Cocktail – a tasty blend of gin, vodka, lychee liqueur and grapefruit juice. World wines and fine spirits are also available, as well as a list of craft beers cherry-picked from small-batch breweries.

To complement the drinks list, the innovative bar menu features some great snacking options including beer-battered prawns with soya and sesame dressing and grilled chorizo with orange blossom honey. For something a little heartier, opt for the Express Lunch menu and tuck into a juicy Wagyu burger with sweet potato chips or a battered fish sandwich with a brioche bun and chipotle sauce. For something on the weekend mornings, book in and enjoy a relaxed brunch with choices such as a harissa bean bake or a sweet potato and corn fritter with avocado salsa.

One of the capital’s most sought-after bars, OXO Tower Bar in London is just 8 minutes’ walk from Southwark and Waterloo and 10 minutes’ walk from Blackfriars Tube station.

    Luca was brilliant and made the day for us.

    Every bit as good as we hoped. The staff made it special. Poor service could have ruined what would otherwise have been a great dinner. We were moved after one course - without having to ask - to a window table which came available. Seemless. Attentive and appropriately inter-active. Not overly obvious, certainly not rude - or servile - perfect balance. Timing of each course was ideal - no long gaps or indigestion!
    I'd never make a restaurant critic as I can't analyse each dish but the food was of course marvellous, too! We (five of us) were all over-whelmed. Plate annotated with birthday message for my wife arrived on cue - I had forgotten to point out when we arrived that we had asked for this when booking, but I needn't have worried.
    Not a cheap evening but worth every penny, particularly for a special event.
    We started with cocktails in the bar. Again, amazing staff. Complex cocktails came speedily. A small spillage and potential damage to a 60th birthday present was dealt with very effectively - quickly, subtly and without any request being necessary. We were relieved of coats by a very efficient lady in the bar area - and as our party assembled she anticipated our requirements brilliantly.

    Thank you for a very special evening.

    Only one small point, having arrived by cab it took us a while to find the entrance. Better signage would help.

    Revisited the Tower Bar after quite a few years, however it does not look neither feel like a bar with the seating space, lighting, open kitchen areas at present. Even the view is ruined from the glare and reflections of the kitchen/background on the glass looking out. I preferred it much much much more as it was some years ago, with a nice bar and bar-like tables and lower lighting, even though it was smaller space-wise. Cocktails are good still at least.

    We went for lunch. We had some of the smaller plates to share which were very nice washed down with a bottle of red wine. Nice setting and good views. Staff very friendly.

    We enjoyed the express lunch on the outdoor terrace. Service was excellent particularly due to my specific dietary requirements. Beautiful terrace and fantastic views across the river to St Paul’s cathedral and the amazing city skyscrapers. Loved the whole experience.

    We were sat on the terrace and had a fantastic view of the Thames. The Oxo on brand wine was lovely and the food was delicious. Oxo made an extra special effort with the dessert which they decorated as a surprise in celebration of my brother’s birthday. The waiter was so helpful and attentive. Thank you Oxo.
