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.

OXO Tower Restaurant in London is just 8 minutes’ walk from Southwark and Waterloo and 10 minutes’ walk from Blackfriars.

    Have dined over many years with great satisfaction. This time service was dreadful even with 2 managers walking around talking to each other and not focused on customers. The food quality was varied..Cold vegetables, cold potatoes, excellent chateau briand. I hope standards will return to the norm

    Booked for afternoon tea to celebrate my 60 th birthday. Lovely mixture of savoury &sweet. Liked how they were brought separately, not all together. Very friendly staff,loved the candle put in the scone! Not as keen on the 12&half% charge automatically added to the bill as never sure if the staff actually get this. Prefer to do this myself so next time I will remember to ask for the bill minus this .

    The food, service, view and ambiance were excellent. I had the crab starter, followed by the steak which were excellent. The service was excellent without being over bearing.
