The benugo bar & kitchen, the original bar and restaurant for Benugo at the BFI Southbank encapsulates all the things we are proud of and sets them in a great bar and restaurant environment. From lounging on a Sunday with brunch to drinks after work, the benugo bar and kitchen is a great place to unwind with friends with one of our expertly made cocktails, a glass of wine and food from our menu of British classics.
