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.

    We enjoyed the afternoon tea at OXO Tower. The experience was amazing. The scones and the clotted cream were incredible. We went there for our anniversary and they treated us like royalty. The staff was very polite, graceful and accommodating. Thank you so much OXO Tower staff. Melida and Nestor

    My 2 children (7 and 9) have been asking what 5 star was like - Oxo Tower didn't disappoint ! Fantastic food, brilliant service and of course, the amazing views over the Thames. They were also amazing with my son's nut allergy - going the extra effort to check that his afternoon tea was suitable and making it really clear what he could and couldn't eat. Nothing was too much trouble - a lovely afternoon for us !

    Wonderful! Service was attentive but not obtrusive. All the dishes were truly excellent, but I enjoyed the seared salmon with black garlic dressing and the lamb was melt in the mouth and succulent. This was a birthday present for a friend and it was really memorable.

    Amazing experience! Discrete yet very attentive staff from start to finish. Went for the £39 Tasting menu on offer, a bargain for the quality of the food, service and the lovely night we spent!

    Any experience at the oxo restaurant is always a treat but I can’t help but feel that they were slightly chaotic last night. It appeared there were enough staff but they didn’t seem organised and we had to look for service for some of the basic things unfortunately. I’d consider going back but not on a Saturday evening. .
