With striking floral print on the walls, art by Alexander Hollweg and tartan seating throughout, Refuel is a brilliantly stylish eatery inside the popular Soho Hotel. Inventive, beautifully presented dishes are served throughout the day, along with contemporary afternoon teas and signature cocktails.

The Refuel menu kicks off daily with brunch, offering classics ranging from eggs any way, to Canadian pancakes with bacon and maple syrup, or French toast with caramelised bananas and honey yoghurt. Later in the day, diners can sample bold flavour combinations in starters like seared tuna with ponzu, avocado puree, chilli, coriander and truffle oil, while hearty mains include slow-braised ox cheek with beetroot mash, heritage carrots and red wine jus. There are premium steaks from the grill, and vegetarian pasta recipes like oft herb gnocchi primavera with mint and feta.

Afternoon tea at Refuel offers traditional scones and international teas, as well as eclectic items like leek, cheese and oney roast ham croquette, and sweet treats like chocolate and orange flower pot with chocolate soil. A huge range of signature cocktails, premier spirits, champagnes and wines are served at the Refuel bar in Soho, as well as a menu of light bites such as pulled pork sliders, spring rolls and mini Scotch quail's eggs.

A bold, stylish venue with impeccable presentation, Refuel in London is 6 minutes' walk from Tottenham Court Road Tube Station.

    The Refuel restaurant is lovely. It feels both luxurious and very trendy; perfect for Soho. The service was outstanding, incredibly friendly and observant. The Afternoon Tea itself - and Bellini - was absolutely delicious, and very accommodating of some pretty inconvenient vegetarian and vegan dietary requests. Really lovely day, would be delighted to return.

    Always a great experience - except for the service , which in the library and in the bar was as usual painfully slow !!

    Great place for afternoon tea. Really enjoyed the food, excellent service and relaxed atmosphere. Would recommend.

    Our afternoon tea was fantastic! The selection of food was big (maybe a little too big, we couldn't quite finish) and delicious! We could taste that every dish had been picked carefully and was of highest quality. The tea was excellent too and we appreciated the hot water being refilled as often as we wanted. The mimosa with freshly squeezed orange juice was probably the best I ever had. On top of all, the ambience was great, we loved the British ladylike little tea room and the staff was lovely. Thank you for the excellent dining experience.

    Brilliantly friendly and efficient staff, delicious food and we were put in a beautiful quiet library room so totally gorgeous setting. Totally spoilt from start to finish and left to relax and enjoy for as long as we liked. Such good value compared to other cream teas too.

    Lovely drawing room, delicious afternoon tea nicely presented. As a foreigner I would like to have all British stuff on the plate therefore I didn't appreciate much the mini arancini. Though I understand that British people also like to alter their teas a little with yummy stuff from abroad :-)

    I booked the afternoon tea in my husbands name but I enjoyed afternoon tea with three of my friends, I had visited Refuel before and had been very impressed with the quality of food and the service. This visit did not disappoint. I had pre-ordered a vegan and gluten free option and both were excellent. The only slight comment is that the gluten free bread was a bit hard.
    The service was excellent, neither patronising or obsequious , which is not easy to achieve. Although I did not specifically request them , two Happy Birthday plates arrived for two of the ladies which were a lovely surprise and really appreciated.
