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.

Have been here a few times and always impressed. Had the set menu - was simply fabulous! 2 courses plus a Bellini for £17.50 and all of the choices were delicious.
Snacks and bread also served, plus we chose not to have the dessert (3 courses was £19.50) - only because we were full! But were served some delicious truffle chocolates with coffee and mini ice cream cones (x2 each!) with our bill. Just right for a little sweet something at the end of a meal. Incredible value for such good food.
Atmosphere was fun, buzzy but not so loud you couldn’t hear yourself speak. Service fab too! Best of all we werent rushed to vacate the table, - sat gossiping and drinking after dinner... 3.5 hours in total.
Perfect for a girls dinner and cocktails.

A lovely restaurant that can be lively towards the weekend, but also a little calmer earlier in the week. Food is excellent and great choice of wines. The cocktail bar is a great way to start the evening.

Service and food were great, and staff were attentive and friendly, helping us move into the drawing room after lunch, for coffees. We weren't rushed out either. Food was lovely (I had the afternoon tea and my friend had a vegan lunch) but it would be great to see more vegetarian options on the lunch menu as there is only one currently. Overall, I would definitely recommend this place.

Food was good, as usual. Service was friendly but the message we gave about needing to leave by a certain time to make the theatre didn't get through to the kitchen, meaning we had to rush our food down with less than 5 minutes to go (and also left without the takeaway dessert we'd requested).

We really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere , however we were not impressed by the service. The restaurant was not busy the day we were there however it took food about one hour to arrive . This is when we found out that the sides were never added on to the system hence we had to wait for them to be prepared

My 3rd time was a disappointment. The food and touch of perfectionism didnt appear that day. On top of what should been a cosy family dinner, was disburbed by extremely noisy table a side, that should have been adressed. The other times - well that was like heaven, so still a recommandation from me on the long run

Great a la carte brunch menu, although be warned that the breakfast buffet options are only available until 11am. If you can't get into Christopher's for weekend brunch, this is a great alternative!

Really lovely restaurant, not too upmarket, but stylish and a bit quirky! Service was brilliant. Food came quickly, but not too quickly and the complimentary Bellini and sorbet added a special touch. For me the Pumpkin tiramisu was the star of the show. Hugely filling and delicious! Cant wait to go back next week!
