There is your usual Nandos, Harvester, TGI's.
Worth a night out nightclub in there as well !
The O2 knocks Wembley into a cocked hat. The perfect venue for any performance. War of the Worlds was fantastic and, need I say it, The Moody Blues were, as always, superb.
Plenty of restaurants and bars around the venue. Plenty of car parking space, although expensive.
Here for the London prepares series. Venue for spectating is superb, but the food prices are not just high, they are 300% mark up and service is poor.
Don’t buy stuff, enjoy the venue

Love this venue. Went here for new years eve saw Kasabian, Chase&Status and Zane Lowe. The night was epic, the venue perfect. The great thing bout the o2 so much there to do, bars, clubs etc and its easy to find your way round and even better its on the tube line making it easy to get in and out.
went to see rhianna here a few weeks ago, was ok seating but the couple next to me done my head in, they ended up getting kicked out of a concert which isnt the best but apart from that i had a lovely time.
Really dissapointed in the O2 arena. It really just exists to ‘extort’ money out of the British Public. £25 to park for three hours….I mean come on…that is extortion surely?
By comparison, at the Liverpool Echo or Sheffield Motorpoint Arenas it is only £5 to park for any event! Prices for food and drink in the O2 are also ridiculously high!! Is the whole ethos of the O2 to be socially exclusive…mmm I wonder!!
Went to see Duran Duran in the Arena on 12th December 2011 and we were unfortuntely in block 408, or the dreaded “LEVEL 4”.
If you have even the slightest hint of vertigo then AVOID!!!
Also you are so far from the stage that you may as well be watching the gig from the next poscode…or indeed even heaven itself!!
The acoustics and atmosphere are terrible when you are this far away as well! Definately not a great place for gig, unless you are loaded and can afford a ticket down the front (£300….hmm…no chance!!)
To be fair the structure itself is very impressive and spotlessly clean..it’s just such a shame that it is a shining example of ‘rip off Britain’ at it’s very worst!
OK – a once in a lifetime experience……..and I would only do it once!!! The venue is huge and unless youv’e got a seat near the stage, you could feel left out of the ocassion. I can’t say tha we had a bad experience but it just wasn’t for us at those prices. We often stay in North Greenwich and jump on the tube into Town. Would recommend O2 Qypers to stay at the Holiday Express at the beginning of Millenium Way and walk up to the arena.
Really enjoyed this venue-saw Roger Daltrey play Tommy and loved the show and the venue. The stage is surrounded by seating on a first come first served basis and has a bar open throughout the show.There is a cosy style to this venue-will definately go again

I went to see The Saturdays here... (lol it was a free ticket I couldn't say no) Even though I had never heard of them at the time it was a lot of fun. The sound is crisp. Even though I was like a million miles away from the stage (I think I was like on the top tier) the screen was big and clear enough for me to see. I am afraid of heights but I felt safe and secure up there. It wasn't hot it was just the right temperature. Before you go in you must go through security which is cool if you have nothing to hide. I'm coming back here in November to see Rihanna. I'm sooooooooo very excited!
We've had a brilliant time at the Indigo O2 venue twice for receiving two National Awards. Both events were very well done and enjoyed by all who attended them. We didn't just enjoy it for the excitement of winning the Awards, but also the hospitality of the venue, and meeting some very kind and inspirational people. We would love to see the rest of the O2 Arena Complex.
If you want to eat before a concert at the O2 Arena, I have a tip for you. Get there early, and decide where you want to eat right away.
We got there early, and were almost immediately attracted by a rather nice Thai restaurant. BUT ….
‘Let’s see what else there is before we go firm on it!’
That was a mistake, for there are an awful lot of food outlets within the Arena. By the time we’d checked them all, read their menus and returned to the Thai restaurant, we were told there’d be a 30 minute wait before we could even be seated. And, the concert started in 45 minutes.
So, the search had to be confined to places where we could be seated and served almost straight away.
The one we chose was the ‘Armadillo’, which wouldn’t, normally, have been my first choice. They try desperately to ‘be American’, but don’t quite make it. There’s American beer on offer, but there’s also Beck’s beer … which is better and cheaper.
I found the music a little too loud for my tastes, and the restaurant was a little crowded. But, nevertheless, the service was slick and efficient, and we couldn’t complain about the food; fish and chips and a chili burger. It’s just that the ambience doesn’t quite do it for me.
Despite its size, the O2 has amazing acoustics no matter where you sit. Obviously if you want to 'see' the act avoid the upper level unless you're happy with the screens, but if you're happy to just hear, sit anywhere.
