Apprenticeship Summary

An iconic landmark on the bustling South Bank, the eighth floor of the OXO Tower is home to the renowned OXO Tower Restaurant, Bar and Brasserie. Drawing in Londoners for over two decades since its opening by Harvey Nichols in 1996, it has gained a glittering reputation for its seasonal British cuisine, outstanding service and unparalleled views across London.

With three amazing venues situated on the eighth floor of one of the most iconic landmarks in London, OXO offers our fearlessly stylish customers a destination with unprecedented dining and drinking.
