The best London Steak restaurants

We know a good steak can be a Godsend for true carnivores, so we researched some of the best London steak restaurants and painstakingly narrowed it down to our top five for your future dining pleasure.

World’s End Market

On the former site of an iconic Chelsea pub, this restaurant was described by Steak Revolution, a Netflix documentary, as the best steak in the world and has recently won Best Local Bar in the 2018 London Bar and Club awards.
Featuring José Gordon’s world famous steak from the Spanish village Jimenez de Jamuz, his meat is hung for 180 days to intensify flavours.

Guests can enjoy a relaxed experience with a choice of steak and seafood from a selective fish bar whilst dining in the bustling heart of Chelsea.

Recommended dishes include the Madagascan prawns, that come with the shell slightly opened to make the experience slightly easier for diners who don’t like to get their hands dirty.

While known for their remarkable meat and fish, the sides here are not to be missed, including house fries which are accompanied with fragrant truffle and a sprinkling of parmesan.

459 King’s Road, Chelsea


Smith and Wollensky

 In 2015, situated in the Adelphi building, the first S&W outside of the US, opened.

This Covent Garden Restaurant is well-known for their American hospitality.

To start, the poached lobster and the seafood platter is a favourite and to follow the gorgonzola crusted fillet steak.

With pre, and post-theatre menu options, it is busy all week and the meat isn’t the only thing that keeps guests coming back. The doughnut holes’ or the true to their origins New York cheesecake are effortlessly, equally as indulgent as their main courses. For a liquidy treat, the after-dinner drinks list is as long as their food menu.

Covent Garden Riverside, 1 – 11 John Adam Street, London 


Hawksmoor Seven Dials

 The remarkable steak and cocktails at Hawksmoor gained the 2011 Time Out’s Best New Restaurant award.

Set in an old fruit warehouse, this restaurant, which has emerald green décor and a minimal lighting glow, isn’t only popular for its lobster rolls, steak and beef-dripping fries but the extensive cocktail lists containing Anti-Fogmatics. Popular morning drinks including the Marmalade cocktail.

If you’re too full for a desert, try the take-out option of the handmade, gooey salted caramel chocolate Rolos.

For a Sunday treat a Roast is served with meat cooked on a spit over an open fire.

11 Langley Street, London 



Following the success of Hix Oyster and Chop house, this chicken and steak restaurant in the heart of Shoreditch, sits in a former tram-generator building.

This distinctive dining experience involves meat carved at your table and is a perfect sharing option.

Based on individuality and culture, making a statement upon first impressions is the cow and chicken art work from Damien Hirst.

Looking for something out of the ordinary, the Indian Rock Chicken curry is a popular dish and for a weekend treat a bottomless brunch, including Prosecco or Bloody Mary’s, is £25.

32 Rivington Street, London


Bar and Block

 Known for their high-quality steaks and high-street prices this steakhouse is situated in the lively area of Kings Cross and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

With a modern interior décor and cosy red leather booths guests can enjoy an open kitchen and watch Bar and Block’s chefs preparing their meal.

An express menu, available 12-5pm Monday to Friday, ensures all diners will be served in 10 minutes and under £10 or for something a little less generous than a steak, a snack/nibbles menu is available.
