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 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. On the A La Carte Menu, 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 new favourite served in a brioche bun.

On the desserts side Gillray’s Award winning Cheese Table is showcased featuring the finest artisan cheeses sourced from across England. You may also wish to try our Flourless Chocolate Cake, Seasonal Meringue Pie or our Signature Traditional Sherry Trifle.

    Lovely setting but the service was shockingly slow

    Service was great we got our steak within 10 minutes although it did shorten the experience. There was no atmosphere in the restaurant but all the staff were lovely and helpful. Was a shame about the scaffolding blocking the view, but couldn't be helped. The food wasn't of a great standerd, our steaks tasted strange. Overall, we won't be rushing back there.

    Made welcome by front of house on arrival,but overall disappointing. The appetiser arrived whilst we were eating our starter.We ordered rump steaks - one was alright,but not a particularly good piece of meat, the other was charred black and hard (medium/rare ordered ). I sent it back and the replacement ,which arrived after my partner had finished, was thin and chewy.No discount was offered, only additional drinks which we declined.

    Disappointed. One of the reasons for booking was the view of the river - there is scaffolding all round at the moment and absolutely no view. I had mackerel as a starter and it was no more than a 3" x 1" tiny piece of mackerel. The English mustard came in the Coleman mustard jar and looked like from a greasy spoon cafe it had been used so many times and there wasn't even any mustard left in it. The second jar to arrive was equally well used but at least had some mustard in it. i asked for a bread roll when my small mackerel starter arrived - was told it would take a few minutes as the bread had to be warmed. It did take a few minutes, and i had finished my starter, but the bread was stone cold. We had a later lunch and there was only one other table eating, however there was absolutely no atmosphere. On the plus side the steak was good and the staff were friendly.

    Very polite welcome, lovely views and shown to our table very quickly. Even though one of our waiters admitted he was new he was very knowledgeable about the menu. Food was okay, and very good value for money.

    Service friendly and efficient. Food very good and attractively served. Good ambience. Unfortunately scaffolding up currently for cleaning purposes so no view this time.

    We were disappointed with our visit because the food was not very exciting, My wife's starter portion was very small' I chose the rump steak(medium well done) for my main course and I was not able to eat the meat because it was virtually impossible to cut into sizeable portions and the extra side order of chips did not arrive until my wife had nearly finished her main course. My wife observed that the seemed to be some confusion with the serving staff since our main courses arrived but was not presented to us until another table was served? The staff were quite pleasant and one of the senior staff di not charge for my steak, that is appreciated.
