More about Gillray's Steakhouse & Bar

Winner of 2 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 from O’Sheas Butchers. Cutting-edge cocktails (featuring a stock of over 120 different gins) offer the latest in mixology trends, while bespoke furniture turns the South Bank restaurant into a contemporary haven. 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.

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 to include red wine and bone marrow, or tarragon butter. For fish lovers, south coast lemon sole is served with creamy parsley butter. Home-cured pastrami sandwich is another favourite, served in a brioche bun. Sides and extras include truffle and Old Winchester chips, Heritage carrots in Fennel honey, creamed spinach, or the delicious Gillray’s house summer salad.

On the desserts side, Gillray’s award-winning cheese table features the finest artisan cheeses sourced from across England. Finish with the flourless chocolate cake, seasonal meringue pie, or the signature traditional sherry trifle.

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 Shrek's Adventure. Valet parking is also available on site.

Very enjoyable Sunday lunch - great views and relaxed atmosphere
20 March 2017 by Mark MacKenzie MBE from London
Another nice experience. Good was lovely and would recommend the steak. I would only say that you may want to rethink your seating plan. We were initially seated next to two very large tables and it became extremely noisy that we couldn't hear each other so we asked to move. The service this time was okay however our server didn't really want to engage with us, it felt he was only going through the motions and wasn't as good as the server we had the last time. Don't get me wrong I would still recommend this as a good place to go for steak.

Had the set price 3 course and a cocktail deal. Was surprised there wasn't a choice of cocktail but the one that was served was delicious. Our party ordered the Spinach soup, duck pate, steak and chips with extra vegetables and sticky toffee pudding, choc pot and a selection of ice cream. The quality of food was first class and lovely. The only slight negative is that we ordered extra vegetables and these were such small portions. We chose a Chilean wine which the waitress recommended and it was good. Great view of the Thames as we have asked for a window table.

Food and setting and ambience excellent. Service a bit slow on arrival
17 March 2017 by Alun from London
Very good set menu, very nice restaurant and staff are very polite and helpful. Only criticism is a policy that non hotel guests cannot order a drink in the bar after 11:00pm, given that guests are spending a reasonable amount of money on dinner and drinks this would seem an overly restrictive policy....

Found it on line on the way to London for the weekend. If was fabulous. Food was good, service was very good and the view was amazing.

An enjoyable Sunday lunch at a table that gave good views of the river, service was slow which gave plenty of time for conversation.

very poorly signposted so we ended up walking around the town hall, we ended up walking up some steps which suggested that we were going to a Chinese restaurant! and that is where Gillrays is!! The sign on the door was also quite hard to read from a distance

Every reviewer mentions the service quality and they are right. Attentive, friendly and authentic are the words that spring to mind. All makes for a good night out.
