I am a big lover of all things steak and burgers, last year I wrote a blog post on my favourite places to catch a burger in London, which you can read here and I wanted to share my favourite meat restaurants in this fantastic city.
There are so many on my to visit list, but I thought I would share my favourites from the places I have visited so far:
For a £10 steak you really can’t complain, admittedly I could easily eat two of them, but the meat is succulent and the sides are exquisite. My absolute favourite being creamed spinach. I have only ever visited the Soho branch, but the dim lighting and music make for a romantic atmosphere.

I had been desperate to visit this place ever since I heard about it two years ago and thankfully convinced my pops to take the family there for a celebratory meal earlier this year. The different cuts of meat are brought to you on a slab and described in detail for you to choose. I went all out and had a fillet steak which felt as though it melted on my tongue as I ate it. The sides were just as impressive as the mains including fat twice cooked chips, humita saltena and whole roasted cauliflower cheese. Despite the heftier price tag, for me it was definitely worth every penny.
I have only ever tried a roast dinner at this place – I have yet to sample their steaks, but I can say without a doubt it was the BEST roast dinner I have ever had. The meat was as pink as it looks in the picture, and although the exceptionally large onion was questionable, it’s still somewhere that’s definitely worth paying a visit if you like your meats.
I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant, again I went to the branch in Soho which was set in a dimly lit restaurant that was apt for Tinder dates. We ordered the ???? and received the most colossal plate of meat I had ever seen. Whilst it wasn’t as juicy as Flat Iron or Gaucho, I loved the variety of meats that we could try in one go. Plus they had an interesting range of (very strong) £5 cocktails. What’s not to love?!

I wouldn’t normally choose chicken over red meat, but Time Out had hailed this place as the best chicken restaurant in all of London and I was in the area, I decided to pay it a visit. The place felt more like a school canteen and lacked any form of atmosphere but the chicken was incredible and the sides hefty in size, it also helped that the food was pretty decently priced. If I was ever in Tottenham again I would definitely pay it a visit.
