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.

    It was a quiet January evening. Almost had the whole restaurant to ourselves. Services and food were excellent. Since we were able to stay beyond the 2 hr slot we were able to enjoy leisurely post dinner cocktails at the table. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

    Excellent melt in the mouth Ox cheek Bourgignon washed down with a lovely muscadet. (Yes, red meat and white wine, but it worked for us…) Very attentive service and friendly staff. Great ambience and will go back to try the afternoon tea.

    Attentive staff - the restaurant was not Busy but service was good - food good but chicken with bacon and Savoy cabbage was way too salty with very little savoy to be honest the whole dish could do with less bacon more cabbage and also some Potato pure to balance it out

    Great staff - made to feel so welcome , nothing a problem and lots of fun banter … really enjoyed our experience Classic food was cooked perfectly and served well … my Dover Sole meunière was a decent size … albeit top-end price (£52) and the trend of then charging £8+ for each side needs to reviewed. Thank you for a great special treat visit

    The restaurant is very good. However. OpenTable labeled it with two pound signs, indicating that the price would be below 25 pounds per person. This was certainly not the case, as the cheapest main plates were around 26 pounds. It's a very nice restaurant and the food is good, but it's important to know that you will definitely be spending more than 25 pounds per person.

    I went with high expectations so this may be why it was not as good as I'd imagined. The service good, prices as you would expect at this location were higher than average, fine. The food was well under par. The scallop entre was coldish and the sauce was absolutely not a match. Disappointing. The veal ragu was pasta, with a cold sauce that didn't bind, and although I didn't have the risotto it was mentioned that it reminded the guest of a dessert as opposed to a main. The mushroom soup apparently was very good. From a food perspective not much to say other than maybe they were having a bad day in the kitchen. Harsh review probably, however it needs to be said in one word it can only be described as OK. Would I consider returning? Bill was £220 for 3, not in this lifetime.

    Skate... Over salted Service... Loooooong wait between starter and main course. My colleague thought it was nearly 30 mins. Our table service staff were friendly enough. Lots of staff rushing around. We had full view of the chaotic kitchen. Gordon Ramsey needs to make a visit. Disappointed as we were looking forward to sampling both the Set Menu and the Al la Carte.... and then to compare. The overall experience did not warrant the £127 value.

Then came to the table with a birthday cake and sung happy birthday. Its was lovely. The hotel is beautiful and the food was great. We'd go again. The Wizard of Oz afternoon tea was epic!

    We visited for lunch. The service was slow, but pleasant. The food was OK but I thought it was very expensive in terms of both quality and quantity. The pea hummus was more like mushy peas; the "heritage" tomatoes looked to be straight out of Tescos; the bread serving was stingy and the chips were cold....the smoked salmon (at £24!) was nice though..... Pleasant enough, but I wouldn't rush back.....

    The restaurant didn't deliver on quality of food and cocktails. The classic cocktails were 'off' the usual taste and also portions smaller than average. The linguine with crab was tastless and grossly overpriced. Starters were super small. In amongst them, what claimed to be a 'burrata' was, in fact, mozzarella, and its combination with peaches and beans was not right...Red mullet was on a bed of something very sour. All in all, a very disappointing and grossly overpaid experience. The service was good, no complaints there
