Gillray’s Steakhouse & Bar to open next month at the Marriott County Hall
For lovers of all things British, Gillray’s Steakhouse & Bar, named after the 18th Century caricaturist and printmaker James Gillray, is something to look forward to.
Housed in the majestic London Marriott County Hall Hotel on the South Bank, everything from the design of the restaurant to the food and drinks will be thoroughly British, with bespoke Chesterfield sofas, Waterfield chandeliers and prints by Mr Gillray himself.
The focus of the menu is of course steak, all aged for 35 days and sourced from the Duke of Devonshire’s Bolton Abbey Estate in Yorkshire.
There will be nine cuts on offer, including fillets and T-bones, as well as the signature dish, a ‘One kilogram butterfly cut double rib steak served with the bone’. The bar will be stocked with no fewer than 33 English gins, 10 English beers and five English vodkas, with the cocktails taking inspiration from Gillray’s works.
Starting in the Georgian era with the Very Slippy-Weather, named after one of his prints, the menu will traverse history, arriving at the present day – or ‘Contemporary Era’ – in the form of complex molecular cocktails.
There will also be British bar snacks on offer, such as Melton Mowbray pork pies, or venison sausage rolls with HP sauce. It is set to open this spring.
