Set in one of London’s most stylish hotels, The Soho Hotel, REFUEL Bar and Restaurant is in the heart of the West End just moments away from the city’s popular theatres and nightlife. Designed by owner Kit Kemp, REFUELS’s interior is a vibrant mix of colour and contemporary art, including a mural painted by London-born artist Alexander Hollweg, which runs along the entire length of the oak and pewter bar. REFUEL is best known for its British menu with an emphasis on fresh and seasonal produce. Expect to find dishes such as confit pork belly, miso glaze with Swiss chard and poached cod, clam and parsley sauce. Also boasts one of Soho's best dessert menus with treats like English strawberries, vanilla and mascarpone tart; raspberry and white chocolate crème brûlée and Amaretto and lemon curd. A favourite with the media and creative industries, the bar is always buzzing and offers a wide choice of cocktails and spirits.

Refuel at the Soho bar delivered another great performance for our business meal. The staff was very attentive, the menu had a good selection and of course the drinks menu is large.

The noise levels in the restaurant are moderate and allows for a good conversation during dinner. The food is lovely, tasty and the portion sizes good too.

Definitely can recommend the deserts and it is really nice to get little ice-cream snack on the end of the meal.

Refuel restaurant has a comfortable, homely and warm feeling, it can cater for small parties as well as larger groups.

Service was very slow.....didn't order starters but mains still took around 45mins to arrive....all three steaks were overdone and the fries were lukewarm. Cocktails were nice and bar atmosphere was good......so stick to the bar and swerve the restaurant

Once again they exceeded our expectations and made our experience perfect! We believe this is truly one of London’s genuine hidden gems! Everyone here has tried to go above and beyond to make us feel special.

This is an EXCELLENT choice for afternoon tea (and lunch or dinner). We tried other afternoon teas and none measured up to here. Dinner is superb as well.

We went three times in the two weeks we were in London. If we were closer it would have been every day! Go and enjoy!

Refuel is a surprise and a delight! We’re going back as our first choice for a restaurant in London. The price we paid was exceedingly reasonable! The taste of the meal and the perfect service exceed that found in the most expensive establishments.

Service, ambience and appearance all up to scratch. The food was very good and well presented. The staff all very attentive and friendly...even when I had to wait forty minutes for a late guest they took it in their stride and asked if I needed anything during the wait! One small gripe...I do get annoyed at restaurants who’s website suggests a set menu/pris fix option but that isn’t volunteered to you once you arrive at your table.
However overall I would certainly recommend Refuel for a lunch date!

had poor cocktails, table (along with others) very near restaurant/bar door so constant traffic through. Thought it was expensive for what we had - 2 mains, 1 side, 2 desserts & a carafe of wine just over £100.

As on previous visits, Refuel and all its staff are faultless in client comfort and very good food!
The restaurant/bar and adjoining rooms are all a pleasure to be in to enjoy a predinner drink.
You cannot go wrong with any of the Firmdale group of restaurants.

The food could be much better - there was absolutely nothing special (we had an afternoon tea). The tea was nice, the gin tonic was great. The ceremony lovely. There were not too many people.

Restaurant is absolutely fabulous! we had a great brunch with a fantastic waitress, service was really lovely our waitress spent time to explain all options and make suggestions and the food was really delicious and great value for money. We were a table of 6 of various ages and were not rushed to move on at all and when they needed the table back nearly 3 hours later we were given a spot in the bar to continue with early evening drinks - we were made to feel very welcome. Really lovely atmosphere, a real gem in the heart of Soho, definitely going back...

We enjoyed the set menu, which was good grub at a very good price. The flank steak was a bit chewy but overall the food was delicious. Only stink is that G&T's are fifteen pounds a pop, so the overall bill was a bit of a shock when we got it!

Very civilised yet cool London vibe without the usual bad acoustics of most Soho restaurants. If you hate noise but still like a vibe this is great.
