My friend and I had an amazing time when having the last dinner before the lockdown 2.0. We’ve been really looked after and the food was delicious. I’m vegan and the set menu didn’t seem to have any options for me but our lovely waitress has quickly offered some great choices to accommodate my dietary requirements. Overall, 5* experience!

Absolutely beautiful place, the staff was very attentive to our needs and the food was well above our expectations. We booked just before lockdown for dinner the three course menu including a cocktail starting with a chicken liver pate, sea bass with celeriac and finished with an amazing lemon tart.
Will definitely book this place again very friendly staff five stars customer services

Beautiful restaurant and hotel. Food was quite bland and overall pretty disappointing. Service friendly and very good. However I booked w London Restaurant week menu, was given the standard one which I didn’t know, and then charged full price. Wouldn’t normally mind except the food definitely wasn’t worth the full price.

Lovely food, great waiting staff, delicious food, unfortunately wine by the glass was very expensive at over 12.50 per glass which was overpriced.

Had a lovely evening at Refuel. My Flatmate and I went for the deal.. 2 courses and a cocktail for £19.95 👌 The hotel and restaurant are so lovely, really bright and stylish without being snooty. The food was lovely as always.

At first we were a bit disappointed as my Flatmate is vegan and their was no vegan choice on the set menu. Our waiter was not very forthcoming with helping us with this and said she could hand the salad without the cheese. No very satisfying. We had to ask him to speak with the chef and see if he could offer anything else. The chef of course did. And we both enjoyed our meals. The cocktail was a simple vodka, elderflower and soda but was very pleasant and the deal offered a glass of wine for £5 which I thought was a nice touch! However we wanted more than 125ml so we ordered a carafe to share but when it came it was on two glasses which and I just assumed he had poured b4 serving but we were billed for 2 glasses. When there are literally only 3 tables eating in the restaurant one would hope for better service but I can’t knock it for the price and the quality both of the food and the setting.

Super restaurant eclectic but tastefully done. Had the set menu £19.50 which came with a cocktail, extremely good value. Mussels to start, best we have tasted for a very long time, followed by extremely well cooked lamb. Extra wine at £5 per glass, we had red extremely good as well. Service very pleasant and efficient with being fussy. Would fully recommend.

Excellent meal at Refuel at the Soho Hotel. The £19.50 deal with the vodka cocktail is particularly good value. The pumpkin soup was delicious and the lemon tart was sublime. Would definitely go again.

This was our first meal out in a restaurant since March, and we were completely blown away by the quality of the food and the attentiveness of the staff.

This was a 10/10 experience.

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.
