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.

Customer reviews for Gillray's Steakhouse & Bar
((((( 9 March 2017 by Sarah Thomas from London
Lovely place, great staff and the food was delicious. Only criticism I have is that it was a little hard to find!
(((** 7 March 2017 by Nicky Mercer from City of Westminster
The surroundings were lovely, the staff especially our Portuguese waiter was wonderful, friendly and offered amazing customer service. The evening was very enjoyable, but unfortunately the four of us had the steak and the meat was tough and not enjoyable.
The drinks (especially the wine) are far to expensive.

Very good, went for set menu. Such a great view Shame the weather wasn't better. The complimentary Yorkshire pudding with cheese in middle was a nice touch.

It was our friend's birthday and we decided to dine at Gillray's Steakhouse & Bar on Saturday 4th March to celebrate.
We chose the 3 courses & a cocktail menu.
As we had to wait for a member of our party to arrive, the staff welcomed us in and advised that it would be fine for us to wait in the bar area.
As soon as our party was complete we were then shown to our table.
The venue was beautiful and the view was lovely, especially at night when London was all lit up.
The menu choices were fabulous and such good value; I went for the smoked trout, steak & chips and lemon meringue pie.
It was absolutely delicious.
I had never had smoked trout before but I really enjoyed it. My steak was nicely done and presented well.
The highlight for me, though, was the lemon meringue pie. It was more of a deconstructed lemon meringue - there was no pie! I have quite a sweet tooth anyway but the way that this was presented and served almost made me not want to eat it!!! However, it was simply out of this world - so tasty.
The staff at the restaurant and especially Tiago really made our overall experience a fantastically enjoyable one.
They were lovely; friendly, smiley and approachable. He could not be more helpful and when I mentioned about it being a birthday he and his colleague even brought out a macaroon with a candle in it - such a lovely gesture that really went a long way.
I would definitely recommend Gillray's Steakhouse & Bar and can't wait to go back to visit again.

Fantastic view from our table over looking the Thames there is a great atmosphere in the restuarant. My Wife and I with our two children of 8 and 7 had a lovely evening.
The food was good the children had the pea soup while my Wife and I had the Salmon to start followed by the Sea Bass and Steaks which were very tasty.
The staff were very nice and we had a very good night.
