Gillray's Steakhouse & Bar Restaurant Review: This very British steakhouse makes its home in the London Marriott Hotel County Hall. The setting is just right, with cartoons on the walls (Gillray was a satirical eighteenth-century cartoonist), button-back Chesterfields along the walls and a great view over the Thames to the Houses of Parliament. Start traditionally with native oysters or smoked salmon before moving on to a choice of Aberdeen Angus steaks, impeccably sourced and just as well-hung for 35 days, served with optional extras like black pudding. Desserts include a sherry trifle that you open (it’s in a jar), make a hole in and pour the sherry over. A good wine list and British beer line-up accompany the thoroughly satisfying experience.
