Winner of 2 stunning AA Rosettes, Gillray’s Steakhouse and Bar at the London Marriott Hotel County Hall showcases classic English dishes and mouth-watering 35-day aged steaks. Cutting-edge cocktails offer the latest in mixology trends, while bespoke furniture turns the South Bank restaurant into a contemporary haven.

The speciality at Gillray’s restaurant is undoubtedly steak. A huge selection of cuts is offered both on and off the bone, with an assortment of sauces including red wine and bone marrow. For fish lovers, south coast lemon sole is served with creamy parsley butter. An alluring warm chocolate pudding features on the dessert menu, served with Oxford marmalade ice cream.

Taking great care in the quality and taste of Aberdeen Angus steaks, Gillray's uses locally sourced steaks from the finest English Farms. The cattle enjoy two seasons at grass, succeeded by weeks of heather giving the meat a superior texture and richer flavour. Dedicated to James Gillray, with caricatures and his artwork on display, Gillray's in London boasts stunning views of Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye.

Waterloo Train Station is a 7-minute walk from Gillray’s Steakhouse and Bar on the South Bank. Gillray's can be accessed via the main entrance to the London Marriott Hotel on Westminster Bridge Road. Alternatively, enter via the South Bank (Queen's Walk), above the London Aquarium. Valet parking is also available on site.

Five of us had a lovely lunch together. The Marriott Hotel itself is very nice; spacious, gives a sense of grandeur, all facilities excellent and it is very central.
The staff were wonderful - very attentive to our needs and very friendly. We will definitely go there again.

Me and my partner had an amazing evening. One of the best dining experiences we've ever had. Beautiful restaurant, lovely food and amazing staff who made us feel like royalty! I'd like to say a special thank you to Natalie and the rest of the waiters who made our evening so special.

My partner and i went to Gallery's steak house on a saturday night, the service and the gin cocktail was good, however the food was less than average. The steak was so bland and chewy it was not edible.

Great location, friendly service, excellent food and interesting building. Was skeptical as the restaurant is located in a hotel. Very nice too! Will go again.

Excellent service with helpful staff but food very disappointing.

The restaurant had the feel of a somewhat soulless but typically overpriced international hotel chain. Also as It was a particularly warm late afternoon/early evening the lack of air conditioning was noticed by us and the other perspiring guests. However whereas this could be forgiven in the UK as such afternoons are few and far between the below average food is a serious issue.

Even the (small sized) steak portion seemed to have an edgy taste ( bordering on beyond its Use By date).

Expensive and limited wine list
19 July 2014 by Margaret Webber from Beckenham
Although Margaret had a very enjoyable meal, her husband, John, as a vegetarian, found himself without much, if any, choice. There were no veg. starters, and the kitchen said they could not do anything about that except provide a plate piled high with lettuce leaves (no variety of lettuces at all) with a babycham dressing. This is not good enough in one of the top hotels and restaurants in London. The kitchen staff should have been able to adapt .. other places we visit do. His main course, beetroot and cheese tart, was very small and plain with no extra veges on the side; this also was a disappointment. Being a vegetarian is not a crime (which is what John was beginning to think about himself) .... these hotels/restaurants need to pull their socks up. The wine, however, was excellent. And the staff were friendly.
