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. Sides and extras include Truffle and Old Winchester Chips, Heritage Carrots in Fennel Honey, Creamed Spinach or our delicious Gillray’s House Summer Salad.

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.

    Booked this for wife's birthday and for the views but didn't realise the whole hotel was going through building work so view was of scaffolding which was a shame.

    Food was quite good, had a free Yorkshire pudding with cheese and then starter of mackerels which was adequate enough. Went for the two course meal for £20 and had the rump steak with chips which was a large portion and totally filled is up.

    When I booked I did mention it was my wife's birthday and though not expecting something special perhaps a greeting and wish would have made it a little bit special.

    View aside the staff were quite attentive and friendly but hotel was quite old fashioned for us.

    Delicious cheese filled Yorkshire pudding with herby creme fraiche as an appetiser was unusual touch. Every course from the sumner menu was a delightful fusion of flavours.
    Wine and drink menu on an ipad was a great idea. No mistaking whst you are ordering.
    Staff were friendly and welcoming. Very professional.
    Only dropped a couple of stars because of the scaffolding outside county hall which partly obscured the vuews. Nothing to do with the restaurant.

    Had an enjoyable evening at Gillray's to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. Eight of us had the £29 for 3 courses and a cocktail menu which was pretty good on the whole. The chaps (pigs cheek) starter was especially good, and the steaks were tender and tasty. The chicken main course was disappointingly dry and the mange tout and bacon were tough - but as everything else was good I didn't make a fuss about it. Only slight let down was the price of drinks - you expect a classy restaurant in London to be expensive but £48 for the cheapest bottle of prosecco is a bit steep. Also we were charged £96 on the bill for the gin cocktail which should have been included... this was removed when queried. Staff were friendly and professional - although one waitress was wearing a swipe card on elastic round her wrist which hit diners as she reached to place or remove plates (not very professional!). Still, it was a nice evening and we very much appreciated the extra dessert with a candle and chocolate message of congratulations. N.B. No view from the restuarant at the moment due to scafolding

    A great restaurant with fantastic service.

    Four of us were seated at 7.10. Ordered starters and mains at 7.25. Three starters arrived at 8.00, another 5 minutes until the fourth arrived. Then waited until 9.15 until main courses arrived after pointing out that we hadn't been served. Desserts were a shorter wait, only half an hour!
    Staff were apologetic when we complained, but this didn't speed up the process. The food was only OK.

    Table ready promptly, even though we arrived quite early. We were given the option of getting a drink at the bar, or going straight to the table. The salt cellar did not function properly even after it had been refilled. Their signature offering of a Yorkshire pudding filled with melted cheese was delicious but just a little overcooked. The staff were very attentive, even though we were not having the a la carte menu. The tomato salad starter was just perfect but was a little disappointed with the dessert (strawberry soup). Will certainly go here again.
