After years of struggle, BFI Southbank has finally figured out its catering. Or, rather, they got Benugo to figure it out for them.

The low ceiling, square dimensions and lack of natural light have long hampered the riverfront space, and Benugo haven’t succeeded in making it into an appealing venue. But it’s a different story in the newer bar further back, always busy with a mix of cinephiles and other revellers who’ve realised that this is the best place to drink on the South Bank.

In a roomy space decked out in kitchen-sink fashion with an artful jumble of furnishings, the efficient staff serve beers and decent wines at slightly above-average prices, plus food from a short list of snacks and sandwiches.

The Benugo makes a welcome change from the dreary bars elsewhere on this stretch.

Restaurant, bar and the drawing all in one place. BFI and Benugo have got this spot on. The main bar and lounge area is relaxed, great vibe that is perfect to unwind, relax and enjoy time with friends. The Drawing Room a hidden gem, for somewhere a little more away from the crowds. The selection of drinks are good, from classic martini's to hand selected ales. A solid quaffable wine list as well. The restaurant delivers simple and pleasing dishes. Staff always attentive. Has not failed to please yet.
