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.

    It is not a good idea to serve a very spicy bloody mary as a starter of a four course meny..It takes a hour to get Your taste back and ruins the wine experince.

    The staff were amazing, so attentive and couldn't do enough for you. We didn't get a particularly good seat unfortunately, but they moved us to a better one just before dessert which was really appreciated. Food was really good, obviously very expensive but nice for a treat.

    Food was amazing, there was a slight delay in getting asked for our desert.

    A wonderful evening to celebrate my son's 21st birthday. The restaurant staff were attentive and made sure we were sat by the window, just as I had specially requested. The starters were all beautifully presented and tasted wonderful and even the range of bread was delicious. The main courses were served at exactly the right time and the birthday cake I had preordered was served carefully and suprised my son so much he couldn't stop smiling. It was a real milestone for our family amd we had an unforgettable evening and hope to celebrate another special event there again.
