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.

We used the two courses and cocktail offer for £19.95 and seemed a good offer for what we got. I love the ambience in refuel, the staff were friendly and attentive

We had a lovely evening and enjoyed the food very much. This hotel is slightly smaller than others in the chain, and has more charm because of it.

The service let the side down a bit - when I arrived they thought the booking was for just drinks not food, and then we had a bit of a struggle getting the bill! We had another appt to get to so had to chase to be able to pay! But would definitely go back - the food was delicious and the outdoor seating area really lovely.

Consistently good dining experience every time I visit. Tucked away in the heart of Soho, this is a gem. Worth visiting for the boutique style, let alone great food and service.

Terrible open table menu. Cheese & crackers was a small piece of hard cheese with a few crackers we get from Tesco’s. My friend was sick after her sea food linguine. Bad value for £. There are much much better food deals in London. Shame because the hotel seems quite cosy.

We had the set lunch menu and I was expecting a fair standard but this exceeded my expectations entirely. The food was wonderful and the service discreet but friendly and efficient. The restaurant is upbeat and great fun - perfect for two friends meeting for a catch up after a long absence! Would absolutely return.

Highly recommendable. The place is really lovely and the service and attention simply perfect. As a simple suggestion, perhaps menus should try to be a little less ambitious and make it easier to choose the perfect food.

Great place and service was good. The set menu is reasonably priced. However the food was pretty dreadful. Seafood linguine was a bland mush of pasta. The rest of the meal was so mediocre it’s not worth commenting on.

Our meal at Refuel was absolutely first class.
Superb food & excellent service throughout our 3 course evening meal prior to going to the theatre.
We booked online and received out complimentary Gin Mare cocktails without even having to ask for them.
An altogether excellent experience

We were really looked after by a young a talented team, in this modern eclectic restaurant which is very stylish and has stunning food to match. Nice wine and Champagne choices which is always nice. Good price too and slap bang on the middle of SOHO just a short walk from Oxford St

It seems like it was the first time that our waiter was on service. He poured my tonic for me without asking and spilled it on the table. A beer he deliver was almost flat. It seemed like it had been opened previously and then shut and reopened again later. My son's vegan meal was missing chickpeas which was an essential part of the meal. The restaurant tried to palm it off but when my son complained they acted surprised but eventually after talking to the chef admitted they ad no chickpeas left. At this stage, I said they should remove the item from the menu. They did remove it from the bill as my son was so disappointed. Our waiter was not well informed and should not really have been doing service. He told my husband that chips came with his very expensive fillet steak, which they did not, but probably should have at that price! My mackerel starter was nice and so were the others. Apart from the vegan main course all the others were fine. The vegan pudding was also disappointing. The base of the coconut chocolate pudding was stale....not good enough for a Firmdale hotel standard!!

A great restaurant & bar. Food was good, though the fish and chips could have been better with proper chips. That’s the only thing that was a let down with the meal. Otherwise a great place, which I’ll be visiting again.

An excellent location for lunch in town. A comfortable, uncrowded restaurant with a good amount of space between tables. Good wine list and the main courses on the set menu were well cooked and presented. The desserts were not inspiring. Attentive, prompt and friendly service

This was a post theatre choice as the menu was varied and you could also choose small bar plates menu( tapas style).
Arrived on time and was given the choice of seats. Even though it was not full and was half empty there was an atmosphere. It was buzzy and lots of conversations going on. We liked it imm. Staff were great and were very attentive.
As we were eating late we were aware of service but it was excellent . Food was good, Fish & chips were good although I would have preferred normal fries over big fat chips.
My wife’s Caesar salad was lovely and she really enjoyed and commented on it .
Overall we would certainly return, there was good banter with a couple of the waiters who on the night were excellent.
