Review on Gillray's Steakhouse & Bar
Gillray's Steakhouse & Bar is housed in the old County Hall building, a contemporary hotel famed for its splendid riverside setting and breathtaking views of Big Ben, the Palace of Westminster and the Thames. The interior retains much of its traditional elegance, with towering bronze doors, oak panelling and polished marble floors still to be seen.
The restaurant occupies the one-time members' reading room with its high ceilings, drapes and big windows overlooking some of the most photogenic landmarks in the capital. The décor of the restaurant is based on the late James Gillray's caricatures and displays key pieces of his artwork.
Meat is carefully sourced from the Duke of Devonshire's Bolton Abbey Estate in Yorkshire and the menu is full of English classics. Choose Devonshire crab cakes with mustard and dill mayo, followed by their signature dish 2.2 pound "Bull's Head" cut of steak. When it comes to desserts you might choose sticky toffee pudding with Cornish clotted cream or the house speciality English sherry trifle.
