Had afternoon tea here on Saturday 19th January 2018. I had Called prior and asked for a comfortable seat,which we got . Unfortunately the table was Very long with one at each end ! My daughter was by an open door and it was very cold! The staff were very nice and very helpful but when I said the desserts were not very nice they ignored me ! All in all I paid over £60 And had a couple of small sandwiches and one dessert, the desserts may be to someone else’s taste so I understand it maybe be a preference thing ... but all a bit disappointing

Lovely restaurant and decor, however, we asked the waitress where the Prosecco was from and she informed us that Prosecco is Champagne. First two courses were lovely, I then had cheese - Brie- it was extremely cold from the fridge, a few biscuits and a ramekin of what looked like Branston but no decoration (not in keeping with the first two courses). I ate half of it. The waitress then filled my friend’s wine glass (Chablis) with sparkling water.

We had Afternoon Tea at the Soho Hotel last Saturday and would definitely return. The food was delicious, plentiful and very reasonably priced. The staff were attentive but not intrusive and even took the trouble to box the last of the cakes we had been unable to eat, thanks to already being pretty stuffed! We enjoyed it so much we stayed on in the bar afterwards for cocktails. Highly recommended!

Great restaurant in the heart of London that is beautifully decorated. The food is quite pricey but tastes absolutely exquisite. I took foreign friends there and they loved every single dish we had. Service was a bit slow for my liking but the quality of the food and presentation (I had very specific requests for shared dishes) made up for it. I’d definitely be happy to back again!

Nice experience overall!

Excellent service with nicely prepared dishes but I think for the price you pay I would expect a little bit more flavour. The garnish for the fish was bland and the pork chop didn't have much taste of sage like it was described.

Nevertheless the place has an amazing ambience and playful decorations.

We went here for my wife Christmas celebration, and what an special moment it was! We ordered the afternoon tea and everything was delicious, but beside that the service was beyond our expectations... Mohammed was a fantastic host and all the rest of the crew made us feel like at home, my mother in law had a terrific time with the Spanish speakers of the crew, they were really nice!! Thanks a lot for a fantastic afternoon.

Refuel is one of those tucked away places in heart of Soho that nobody knows about! I am a regular visitor especially because of the quiet ambience - you can actually have a conversation without shouting, other diners are far enough away that you are not forced to listen to inane conversations. The clientele tends to be more mature, people are there for all reasons other than to have lots to drink. Can't recommend it highly enough. The staff are amazing and attentive without being intrusive. The food is modern, tasty and always very well presented

Refuel at the Soho bar delivered another great performance for our business meal. The staff was very attentive, the menu had a good selection and of course the drinks menu is large.

The noise levels in the restaurant are moderate and allows for a good conversation during dinner. The food is lovely, tasty and the portion sizes good too.

Definitely can recommend the deserts and it is really nice to get little ice-cream snack on the end of the meal.

Refuel restaurant has a comfortable, homely and warm feeling, it can cater for small parties as well as larger groups.

Once again they exceeded our expectations and made our experience perfect! We believe this is truly one of London’s genuine hidden gems! Everyone here has tried to go above and beyond to make us feel special.

This is an EXCELLENT choice for afternoon tea (and lunch or dinner). We tried other afternoon teas and none measured up to here. Dinner is superb as well.

We went three times in the two weeks we were in London. If we were closer it would have been every day! Go and enjoy!

Refuel is a surprise and a delight! We’re going back as our first choice for a restaurant in London. The price we paid was exceedingly reasonable! The taste of the meal and the perfect service exceed that found in the most expensive establishments.
