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.

    The bar and restaurant hostess staff were fantastic. The restaurant waiting staff were slow and inattentive with very little personality. In fact, at one point, the whole team, including the manager, left the restaurant unattended to have a staff meeting. Very unprofessional. The food was mediocre, but the drinks were good. The restaurant is lovely and yes, it has great views, but the whole experience was marred by a lack of service and poor food. I would definitely NOT return to or recommend this restaurant.

    Lovely warm welcome and excellent service throughout our visit. We were given, as requested, a table with a beautiful river view which became stunning as the daylight faded and the lights came on on the London Eye and surrounding buildings. The service was friendly and efficient but not at all intrusive and the food was well presented, tasty and very good value. We thoroughly enjoyed our reunion in such an iconic (ex ILEA) building which held plenty of memories for us as retired teachers. We particularly enjoyed the cartoons in the Ladies' Room!

    Great service, food is well cooked and beautifully presented all within the surroundings of this smart restaurant which has superb views of the river. If you love history, architecture and good food then this will be real treat for you.

    Service wasn't very good, slow and unfriendly. Food was ok, but nothing special. 6 of us dinned on a 3 course plus cocktail deal for 29.00, with two bottles of wine it cost us 72 each! Service was added at 12.5%!! Wouldn't recommend and wont be going back.

    Had a wonderful meal at Gillray's Steakhouse & Bar. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, friendly and professional. My husband had the Fillet and I had the Rib Eye and fall in the Top 5 steaks we've ever had! Suculent, juicy, perfectly cooked and absolutely delicious! Don't like having to pay extra from everything else though - side dishes, chips etc which really pumped the price up, but all-in-all a very enjoyable evening. We had requested a river view as well and were delighted to get a comfortable table overlooking the Thames. Thanks you all very much for making our 30th Wedding Anniversary so special!

    We went to Gillray for lunch, our fist time there but definitely not our last. We booked through Bookatable and left a small comment about being a birthday lunch. From the very start it was a great experience, a lovely building along the Thames. We were met at reception by a lovely lady who took our coats said she would find us a place by the window with a view of the river. We had a quick drink at the bar and was shown to our table by Abigel our waitress who was fantastic. We had a lovely meal and was never rushed, in fact we were there for hours. They had read my small comment which I had forgotten about and at the end of the meal served me a birthday treat with a candle, a very nice touch.I highly recommend Gillray's and looking forward to going back.
