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.

The £20 for 2 courses deal is excellent value, although drinks are expensive and you will have to order sides.

Nice vibe and great location.

The staff were great and gave us a larger table as I was walking with a stick and temporarily restricted. We loved the food although the meringue on the set menu was disappointing - so chewy/hard that I could hardly cut it.

Excellent experience. Food was above average (The Earl Grey and scones were divine!) but for the ambiance and price with the 25% off discount promo it was the perfect place for our group to have our first ever afternoon tea in London. We felt like royalty!

I love the Soho hotel and the Refuel bar and restaurant. It is a hidden gem and is such a nice venue to visit for a drink or for lunch. Beautiful decor and great food and service. Lots of attention from the staff. I also love the huge black cat that greets guests upon arrival at reception.

Went to Refuel for a pre-theatre meal and really enjoyed it.
The decor is very nice and we had a cocktail before sitting down.
The three-course menu with a free Open Table aperol spritz was great value.
Both my wife and I had the chicken for a main course and it was outstanding.
I cannot fault Refuel in any way and will definitely be going back

Proper service in a great looking dining room. Our waiter spent the time to understand what we liked and recommend a lovely wine. I don’t even know what it was called but it matched our tastes and food perfectly!
The food was fairly simple but beautifully presented and full of flavour.
A lovely place hidden away right in the middle of Soho. Highly recommended

Good option for the Sunday roast. Portions were substantial. Liquor a bit over priced, but it is a hotel.
The ambiance is ok, but you do feel like you are in a hotel lobby.

Late night booking and the staff were super friendly, helpful and accommodating as one of us was late into the hotel so we arrived for dinner just before closing

We both had entree, mains and desserts and the bill came to just shy of £200.00.

I had a couple of glasses of wine which were lovely, the ambience is gorgeous and like I say the staff wonderful

Unfortunately the food was seriously below par and not at all what we’d read and were lead to expect from other reviews

The loch fyne smoked salmon seemed supermarket bought. The Octopus tentacle warm and obviously suffering from end of night-Octopus-itous, The Barnsley chop dry and tough, the Dover sole fish filleted to within an inch of its life sitting in a bland white sauce. The desserts were lovely and the saving grace of the meal
It was an incredible disappointing meal particularly for the price paid.
Loved sitting in the space but would not eat dinner there again.

The atmosphere is absolutely beautiful. Funky backdrop behind the bar. Gorgeous lighting, seating, everything! The wait staff are very attentive. The food was incredible. We basically licked the bowl clean eating the carrot and squash soup. We had this delicious vegetarian dish. It looked like a thin slice of eggplant the long way and a nice kick of spice. We were very surprised that such a unique hip place was located inside a hotel. I DEFINITELY recommend this restaurant. We would not hesitate to go back again!

Great service and nice food (especially the bread). Sadly they don’t do burger menu, which is displayed on OpenTable, anymore, even though that was what made me wanna go in the first place. Kinda frustrated because they didn’t update their current menu on time.

Excellent experience. Very attentive, competent and happy yet professional bar and waiting staff. Stunning starters (we had the vegetarian options - ricotta gnudi, and courgette, polenta & a divine garlic pesto). One slight issue with my aubergine main was that the sweet chilli dressing was a little oversweet for me. The main portions are big (eg the pasta dishes) so consider a half portion if you're going for a starter beforehand. Pressed for time so sadly had to skip dessert. Pricey overall, but absolutely worth it for a treat. Highly recommend - you will not be disappointed!

We had a great Saturday evening dinner here. The service from all staff was friendly and knowledgeable even to recommending an after dinner cocktail.

My shepherd's pie was fantastic and not a small dish. My wife really enjoyed her crab and chili spaghetti recommend by our waitress.

All in all a perfect place for dinner in the west end

My friend and I had a very pleasant evening here. Staff were very attentive, helpful and polite, and being a Monday evening it was relatively quiet so we were able to talk and hear one another without shouting. We love the ambience and the food is delicious but unfortunately really pricey for our budget. The last time we came there was a set menu which suited us better. Even so we chose wisely and enjoyed ourselves.

Food was very nice! Again did not have to wait long at all.
We went for a drink at the bar afterwards which was really busy with a good atmosphere.

Absolutely superb. Dined pre theatre with 3 friends. From arrival, greetly warmly, escorted to our table, coat taken and drinks offered. We opted for the3 course fixed menu and had cocktails alongside. The food, service and ambience was second to none, every request met with a smile. I would highly recommend this restaurant. I am familiar with the Firmdale group and have never been disappointed
