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.

Great tasting food, good flavours, good portions, friendly staff, nice ambiance. The only thing that lets it down are the eye watering prices. The food is great but it's not worth the crazy prices charged.

Beautiful place. Great ambiance . Exceptional service. We had the set menu. Food was average. Lacked the wow factor save for the beetroot starter. Portions increasingly small compared to other set menus.

Good, practical pre-theatre restaurant with good food although very expensive for what it delivers. The service was very attentive and exceeded expectations compared to the rest of the experience. The ambiance was quite loud and clattering and somewhat cafeteria like. Good for a quick bite and dash. Wouldn’t be a good for a more intimate dining experience.

Lovely food at great value, with the set dinner menu. It was a Monday so understandably quite quiet but that was fine as the restaurant has a nice atmosphere anyway. The waiter was great, really accommodating and had good rapport with our table. I'd definitely recommend for a celebration or a treat.

Fantastic experience. SOHO team is on the top of their game - well orchestrated service throughout. With the exception of the cucumber sandwich, all of the sweets, savory and salty treats were delish. Every one. We needed two hours to finish the tea and make our way through the treats.

They used the name on my payment card instead of my used name in here which meant they could not recognise my booking.

Pre theatre early dinner at 5:30 meant it was full of afternoon tea parties, which soon changed into evening diners. Loved the active atmosphere and the food was delicious. Monkfish was amazing but for that price it should have come with some kind of vegetables. My friend loved the chicken too all wonderfully presented and quickly served. Staff was helpful and friendly

Lovely vibrantly coloured room with very polite staff. Service was attentive and apologetic where things had been forgotten.
The afternoon tea was very nice and fairly good value for London. Four different small cakes, two scones with two different jams. One small pot of tea each with extra hot water. Loved the scotch egg. Four finger sandwiches were delicious and we'd have liked more. Having said that, impossible to eat the whole tea.
Would recommend.

Awful menu! Considering it’s attached to a 5 star hotel and doesn’t even have a fillet steak or at least a burger was poor! The Shepard’s pie I did have was very bad that I didn’t even finish it

It never used to be this bad but something has changed for the worst!

AVOID!

Very impressed with the service, particularly that I mentioned a nut allergy and their attentiveness.
Food was good, we had the 2 course set menu that was very good value, and cocktails very good too.
We liked the ambiance and decor.

Aside from neither of us liking our starters of pate (had a slightly weird taste) the main courses were outstanding and the portions very generous. The set menu provides great value and the staff did offer to replace the starters. I wouldn't hesitate to go back, it's a great restaurant, lovely food and drinks choices. The tablets are spaced far apart so it's ideal if looking for something centrally located with good social distancing measures. I can't wait to return.

Friendly and super-attentive staff. DELICIOUS food, and a fine English Prosecco (although a bit on the pricey side). No complaints whatsoever.
