The Brasserie is one of three restaurants and bars at the Oxo Tower, with this the more informal culinary alternative to the fine dining restaurant. The alfresco seating here is popular in the summer months, with barely-interrupted views across the Thames. Floor-to-ceiling windows help those dining inside to enjoy the view, too.
The Brasserie's all-day, seasonal menu champions British produce and cuisine. Dishes range from roasted butternut squash soup and mushrooms on toast with a soft boiled hen's egg to seared scallops with a truffle parsley purée, Welsh rump of lamb with truffle mash and gravy, and braised pork belly with lentils and winter vegetables.
Keep an eye out for various special menus and seasonal offers, including a range of afternoon teas, Christmas cocktails, hot chocolates and parties, and a range of vegetarian and vegan menus.

For a special treat while my mum was in town I settled on the Oxo Tower Brasserie as it’s got amazing views, right beside all of the tourist hot spots and has an incredible menu. Having done a fair few London afternoon teas I was looking for something a bit different and within budget...this place didn’t disappoint! We booked in for the Theatre Not Afternoon Tea which was sublime from start to finish. Swiftly seated we started with Shakespeare themed cocktail and dessert. Followed by miniature desserts all accompanied by a cocktail pairing to compliment whilst staying on the theatre theme. We were then presented with our choice of tea and complimentary chica and biscuit. Couldn’t recommend this enough for a special occasion!
The Oxo Tower has been firmly placed on my bucket-list for ages, this weekend I finally got to go and visit for my sisters birthday, it was spectacular! The venue is placed beautifully on Southbank with gorgeous panoramic views of London. We were seated right by the window and an early dinner booking meant we got the opportunity to watch the sunset (and take copious of family photos on the terrace). Our waiter was a delight and the food and drinks were delicious. After dinner we were taken to an area in the bar to continue the festivities. We all had a brilliant time, it was such a special evening, I really recommend visiting if you can. They have a 'Not Afternoon Tea' advertised which looks lovely...
I really love this venue, the staff are so friendly and extremely helpful. Nothing is a chore. The food and views also amazing, definitely try and get a seat on the terrace if it's sunny!
Oxo Tower Brasserie is a great place to go, definitely in summer. It's one of my favourite places; it has such a classy feeling but it still has such a laidback, relaxed atmosphere, which I absolutely love. The staff is really friendly and casual, not stiff at all. You can go there for a drink at the bar, breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea or/and dinner. Every time I went it was for dinner, in summer, with a bottle of wine and great food. The food they serve is classic but really good quality. The drinks/bottle prices are a bit expensive but you also pay for the view of course. There is not always availability on the terrace, but you can ask the waiters to keep an eye if a table comes available, then it's not a problem to move to outside. The view is an absolute plus and it's one of my favourite places to be in the summer, relaxing, breathtaking views, great staff and an amazing place to be. Strongly recommend this place!
Located on the 8th floor of the Oxo Tower, The Brasserie restaurant has incredible views across the south bank and the city, perfect for summer alfresco dining. The food is tasty and well thought out in presentation. In particular, the coconut thai yellow curry duck leg which was mouthwatering with the most succulent meat, just the right amount of spice and a mish mash of flavours. The desserts that followed were seasonably chosen and not too heavy. A Blueberry bakewell tart with yoghurt sorbet and a coffee were the ideal end to our feast and I left feeling more than content! Not to forget, the talented jazz musicians playing on the terrace throughout. Unquestionably worth a visit if you get the chance. I will be visiting again for sure!
