Top 10 things to know about Gillray’s:

1) Whatever the weather, a London sunset is beautiful. Atop a hill, or on a bridge facing Big Ben, we all love watching the sun go down. Imagine watching as the falling sun illuminates the wood and cream opulence of a bar and restaurant in which you sit, at a table comprising crisp linen, sparkling glasses and a small plate of darling, complimentary, cheese Yorkshire puddings.

2) You order a nice crisp white wine and wait as your comrades snap photos from the huge bay windows of the Thames view next to the London Eye and the Houses of Parliament.

3) Gillray's is a legendary steakhouse that has been delighting the public with their careful selection and preparation of London’s best steaks for a while. It's therefore abundantly clear what you're eating tonight.

4) Start with scallops, pea purée and bacon jam. Yes, that sounds like a Masterchef starter, but it ticks boxes and allows you to enjoy a heated exchange on the world politics. Around the table, asparagus soup, duck pate and oysters are slurped, chomped and digested with fervour.

5) Cocktails! Yes, you're not meant to mix your drinks, but The Maniac's Ravings cocktail (honey, ginger, No3 and clove) is packed with botanical heat, sweetness and zing.

6) At steak time, feminists may balk at the seemingly inferior Ladies' Fillet, but it's not bad. The steak arrives to your desired choice of medium well done. Peppercorn sauce, carrots, Dauphinoise potatoes, chips and kale are passed around the table.

7) The steak cuts like butter on the gleaming plate. You've had good steak before - in the rampant debates about your mum’s cooking versus your wife's cooking, you've come up sofa surfing every time - but you can definitely say that this is the best steak you've ever had.

8) As you finish the last piece, expertly built on your fork with a good ratio of vegetable, you sit back. The lights of Westminster shine whilst the soothing music and warm, cosy chatter of other patrons only now reaches your ears.

9) Dessert? Everyone agrees, menus are passed around, coffees ordered. The Cambridge burnt cream and rhubarb is the perfect sweet tang to cut through the savoury meat juices that still cling to your tastebuds.

10) Talk mellows to the week ahead and you realise that being at Gillray's has calmed you in unexpected ways. Good food, wine and company are the root of happiness.

Customer Reviews for Gillray’s Steakhouse & Bar

Average (based on 2 votes): 2 Atmosphere: Value: Quality:

The following customer reviews are not endorsed by Fluid London and are simply those of users who wish to publish their independent experiences of Gillray’s Steakhouse & Bar.

“This venue's transformation from fine dining restaurant to casual British restaurant will no doubt suit the tourist-heavy foot traffic (especially during the Olympics this year) who will be looking for hearty British fayre. The steaks are decent, and there is a decent variety of cuts too, in a variety of sizes to cater for all appetites. The service was very good: knowledgeable; eager to please; chatty; smiling. The portions are large enough to keep our American cousins happy too. The decor is subdued but as modern as it can be in such surroundings. Good to see English wines on the drinks list too. Overall: a very enjoyable, if somewhat expensive evening.”

The Restaurant Hunter, London (5 years 6 months 19 days ago)

“Had lunch with my wife and i have to say from the second we walked through the doors until the very end was one of the best experiences we have ever had in our lives, the Host was smiliey and friendly, the waiter who was serving us went above and beyond (Great Knowledge) to make our experience memorable, the food especially the steaks were the best we have possibly ever tried. The atmosphere was so vibrant it felt like the happiest day of our lives, when we left the Restaurant all the waiters thanked us for dining in their Restaurant. (Will deffinetly come back again).”
