Gillray's Steakhouse & Bar Restaurant Review

: The name says it all: James Gillray was a famous eighteenth-century British political cartoonist, and this thoroughly English restaurant gets you in the native mood with a traditional décor and, of course, those prints on the walls. The steaks come from Hereford cattle on the Duke of Devonshire’s Bolton Abbey Estate in Yorkshire, and they’re beautifully cooked. Choose from 35-day dry-aged cuts, either bone in or out, from prime rib to porterhouse, paired with sauces like red wine, bone marrow or Stilton. But before that, try the Cornish oysters, London cure smoked salmon, a nice prawn cocktail or something even more retro, like corned beef and bacon hash with a fried quail egg. It’s all very comforting, with handy cooking notes to let you know exactly the temperature and color of the beef you order. There are good alternatives for the less carnivorous minded as well. Prices are quite high with side dishes coming in as extras. Desserts inevitably include sticky toffee pudding, Bramley apple crumble and the like. The bar offers cocktails specially created with an English taste.
