Restaurant description

An iconic landmark on the South Bank skyline, OXO Tower Restaurant offers contemporary dining from its modern British menu. Relax at OXO Restaurant over lunch or dinner whilst taking in the unparalleled views of St Paul’s and the City of London. With a seasonal menu created by Executive Head Chef Jeremy Bloor, an extensive wine list and an enviable terrace, this is the perfect place to celebrate, whatever the occasion.

Using only the finest ingredients, OXO Tower Restaurant offers guests the opportunity to savour some of the best seasonal British produce on offer. Start with deep-fried courgette flower with goat's curd or cured duck with melon and sour cream before tucking into dry-aged beef fillet with fresh truffles or Isle of Skye langoustines with fennel curd and blood orange jellies.

The extensive wine list, handpicked by Head Sommelier Diego Muntoni, offers guests a vast choice of wines, including some that are rarely available in London.

For a truly British experience, treat yourself to Traditional Afternoon Tea in the Restaurant and indulge in a selection of finger sandwiches, savoury bites and homemade scones with a cup of perfectly-brewed tea with tea leaves grown on the Tregothnan Estate in Cornwall. A fabulous Vegan Afternoon Tea is also available for those looking for a plant-based option.

Find the restaurant down the riverside from both Big Ben and London Eye. OXO Tower Restaurant in London is just 8 minutes’ walk from Southwark and Waterloo and 10 minutes’ walk from Blackfriars.

    I treated my best friend to afternoon tea at the Oxo Tower restaurant to celebrate her birthday and it was a huge success. The location and views are amazing and the service was excellent and the whole experience felt very special. My only negatives are - The scones come out lovely and warm but you have all the savoury items to eat first so the scones are not warm by the time you eat them. The edges of the sandwiches were a bit dry which could be due to the air con or maybe they have been made too far in advance. We had to ask for jam and cream fir our scones . However despite the above we thoroughly enjoyed our experience.

    My friends and I really enjoyed our delicious 4 course special offer meal, preceeded by a choice of special vodka cocktails. Food, service, comfort and ambience were all excellent. The unusual canapes were all mouthwatering, my slow-roasted lamb neck to start and main course cod were perfectly cooked and the best I've ever tasted (and I'm fussy), and my rhubarb and pannacotta bread and butter pudding was also tasty. My friends chose different dishes, and all of them were interesting, high quality, and very good. Highly recommended. Oxo Tower restaurant is very handy for the South Bank theatres, films, and concert halls, and easy to reach from Blackfriars or Waterloo.

    The service was great and it was so awesome as a vegan to be able to have a full afternoon tea and clotted cream too! Most of the vegan tea places in the area didn't have clotted cream. Plus the amazing view, plus the ease of being in the restaurant and booking.
