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.

Absolutely wonderful experience top to bottom. I had a 3 course meal for £25, which came with a drink and a free ice cream. The food was excellent. The waiting staff was superb and very professional. The ambiance was lovely. It’s a perfect place for a date and I will definitely go back again.

We had a lovely time. We booked the set menu plus cocktail. What a bargain and tasty too! Bread was offered and a mini ice cream at the end for free. We’ll definitely come again. Loved the decor and our waiter was lovely and attentive. Thank you

A groovy sort of as place but with very friendly and attentive staff. Our set meal was excellent value, although the a la carte menu is pretty pricey, so I can't rate that for value. Good relaxed vibe although the tables are a little too tightly packed in.

Enjoyed Afternoon Tea with my friend on a Wednesday afternoon - we were sat in the lounge area on the sofas, which was nice and relaxed, but there wasn't much atmosphere since very quiet and would benefit from some low background music. Food was good and reasonably priced, especially compared to other central London hotels. I was only offered one coffee though, whereas my friend had a pot of tea, which was then refreshed with more hot water. Service was ok, if a little inattentive - I had to ask for water every time, rather than being offered regular top-ups.

We've been twice for dinner at Refuel, and had a brilliant evening both times. Each time we have enjoyed the deal of two courses for £19.50, which includes an aperol spritz - it is tremendous value for high quality food in a really lively, but not intrusive atmosphere. The bar is lovely to sit at, the dining area is well designed, good music, but not loud and clattery. The staff are excellent and also speak highly of the place. Each time we have been there has been a new menu too. So, an excellent find in the middle of Soho, I highly recommend it.

Third time back to Refuel - it's just so convenient for meeting friends for dinner after work. Set menu is good value for the area, food is tasty and service very attentive. Drinks can be on the pricey side though.

Stylish venue with nicely presented modern European cooking. Service was attentive but not intrusive, cool New York City vibe. Nice venue for a special occasion but too pricey for routine meals. Quite noisy but we were able to have a conversation without too much trouble.

Excellent service levels from the waiters. Nice quirky interiors and alternative style of formal dining fusion food.

Pork steak with chimichurri and casava fries and homemade salsa style ketchup a nice dish.

The service from our waiter Adam was very good. I do feel there could have been a bit variety/choice of food on the set menu.
The atmosphere was nice.

Really good food, with great service. More than enough options if you want to do gluten free. Only negative might be the music which was irrelevant.

Food is ok, some things overly ambitious. Convenient if at the hotel, otherwise it's likely you can get better quality elsewhere. Service was excellent.

OpenTable 2000+ reviews is NOT reflective of our experience, calling into doubt the review operations. We were one of maybe 5 tables occupied that evening, and had to (try to) call waiters many times for service. Food was acceptable only, with some items that should have been hot merely warm, which given the number of diners was very poor indeed. Overall dissapointing given the very high %age good reviews on OpenTable, and as per my line one, it is impossible to see how it can have got 2000+ good reviews.
