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.

    Wonderful venue, great views and attentive staff! We were asked our dessert order at the same time as our drinks and our mains though and I did feel that we were slightly rushed through. Taster menu was brilliant, good selection and delicious food for both myself and my partner.

    We had a wonderful evening at the OXO Tower restaurant. On arrival we sat outside with a glass of bubbly looking at the amazing views across the river. Then we were shown to our table, where again i had a wonderful view of St Pauls. It was the Pop Up Menu, whilst the Kitchen is being re-furbished, but we both had absolutely delicious food, served beautifully. Mine was the vegetarian option which was perfect, Ravioli stuffed with butternut squash and a mushroom risotto ball for my main course. My partner enjoyed smoked salmon followed by breast of duck. And delightful deserts to follow!

    The food was very good, but if you were looking for the whole fine dining experience - you will be terribly disappointed with the oxo tower temporary pop up restaurant whilst they are renovating the real restaurant. I would recommend waiting until the restaurant has reopened again.

    Dined on a Friday night, service from arrival to leaving was exceptional. Food was well presented but sadly let down by the duck breast, this was very tough, asked for a steak knife but this made little impression. Would go again but would avoid the duck.

    Fab location, amazing food and great ambience. Visited as part of London Restaurant Festival week so we were in the pop-up restaurant. The waiters were wearing hi-viz vests as part of a strange theme but at least we could see them!

    The waiters were very friendly and helpful and polite. Presentation of food was extremely high quality. Food was of excellent standard. The guest with dietary needs was catered for with her own menu and the waiters have clear explanations on serving food.
