A quirky and contemporary bar and restaurant by the Tate Modern in Southwark, The Refinery offers a wealth of imaginative cocktails alongside a modern international menu. Street level tables and deckchairs offer relaxed, open-air dining and drinking.
Kaleidoscopic offerings at The Refinery ranges from British classic beer-battered fish and chips, to prawn lollipops and a wagyu burger with blue cheese. Succulent steaks are served with chips, watercress and a choice of sauce, while a breakfast and brunch menu offers a variety of options from around the world.
A 30-page drinks list at The Refinery in London provides a spectrum of offerings, from fairy-tale inspired cocktails, like the ‘Candy Shop’ blend of Tanqueray gin, rhubarb and custard liqueur, to hearty draught beers. Chunky, factory-style pipes line The Refinery ceiling, soaring above chunky wooden tables and a sleek drinks bar which spans the entire dining space.
The Refinery is just a 5-minute walk from The Globe Theatre, and a 7-minute walk from Southwark Tube Station.

Stop just serving Brunch on Sundays - not everyone wants eggs all day long. Menu selection was far too small.

Nice atmosphere but vegan/vegetarian options pathetic. Who can sustain themselves on salad?!

Very nice place, genuinely friendly waiters and very attentive service as always, good quality food at good prices. The very only thing I would criticise is that there aren't enough vegetarian/vegan options.

Very friendly staff, even when they were rushed off their feet! The majority of the group went for the traditional Christmas meal....really succulent turley!

Staff very friendly and welcoming. Venue fun and attractive. Burger good but Thai red curry was very poor. I would recommend it but would advise careful food choice
