Spotlight: Grill at McQueen

When we ask you about Steve McQueen, we expect you to think of westerns… automotives… The Great Escape… and Steak?! Yes, that’s correct, steaks are the main players on the menu at The Grill restaurant within McQueen in Shoreditch. We “test-drive” the concept ourselves and discuss private dining with their team in our latest Private Dining London Spotlight.

You will find McQueen Grill, Bar and Club on an inconspicuous corner not too far from Old Street Station. During the evenings, the bar can be seen to be heaving with drinkers inside and out so we were eager to sample the dining they also offer. The Grill is tucked behind the bar and is surprisingly big. It keeps the strong, dark interiors that are featured throughout and diners are surrounded by photographs of the Hollywood legend that the restaurant takes its name from.

In terms of private dining, The Grill is available for private hire and with a capacity for 60 seated we recommend it as a good location for team Dinners, Christmas parties and private celebrations. For standing parties, The Grill can hold 100 guests or take the full venue if you are looking for somewhere that can take 300 guests. There’s even a club downstairs for you to party the night away!

The Pork Belly starter is charred for sweetness and is salty from the feta crumbled on top. With such a large starter portion, we’re a little worried about how we will fit in the other courses! The Steak is truly delicious. They have perfected the “rare” request and the rump cut arrives fresh from the grill with a side of buttery carrots. We loosen our belts as the sticky toffee pudding arrives but end up sharing it after the other two filling courses. We’re impressed by the dishes in size and taste but it’s reasonably priced. If you want a quick Lunch, we would highly recommend their set menu.
