The service was poor, slow and sloppy. The waitors didnt really care weather their costomers were happy or upset with the service! Their music playing was too loud, it seemed more like club music than anything relavent for a resturant eg: quiet, romantic music. My...More

Best restaurant in the Rotunda. Didn't used to eat ribs, they weren't for me, until I ate the peri peri ribs here! Fantastic South African inspired food, meat fell off the bone, delicious. Drinks cost a bit and it has a tendency to be quiet,...More

I would have given this review a two stars if it was solely based on the beef burger I ate. It was flavourless, had no consistency and was generally bland. The sweet potato fries were equally as 'meh'. However, the wife ate a rack of...More

horrible staff, unpleasant, rude, not friendly, awful service (i.e. we could see our food waiting and waiters and waitresses were more concerned about their appearances, as in checking their non-uniform outfits and makeup and shoes). Also on a note trying to be as least racist...More

I wasn't too sure about going to this restaurant, as I'd seen it and situated in the Rotunda it looked a little lacking in atmosphere and 'plastic'. We went there for dinner and while the staff were competent, but they lacked any warmth in the...More

Quite a small unassuming place serving ' cow, pork & poultry'! Simple easy menu. Welcoming service. Exceptionally tasty ribeye steak. Nice plain & simple visit.

Called into the Cattle Grid with my wife for a meal as it played the quietest music of the restaurants in the Rotunda in Kingston. It was very quiet due the time of day and we were the only customers. They had a good deal...More

The Cattle Grid team love steak and we think everyone should be able to enjoy it regularly. We know that London already has some great steak restaurants but we aim to bring you the very highest quality steaks without breaking the bank.No hidden service or cover charges means that we can deliver a straight forward dining experience bringing you great tasting food at the best possible price. We purchase direct from market or importer to ensure we deliver the best possible quality produce.So what about the food?Our Steaks:The meat is purchased in prime cuts and butchered in house before being chargrilled to your liking and served with chips and watercress. Our Chips:The potatoes are seasonally selected, predominantly Maris Piper (at certain times of year different varieties are selected to maintain quality). We leave the skins on our hand cut chips and double dip fry to ensure they are crisp and full of flavour.Our Burgers:The prime steak mince patties are hand made in house and served on a sundried tomato sour dough bap, baked exclusively for Cattle Grid restaurants by 'The Bread Factory'.Toppings - as you like it!Our Ribs:Prime baby back loin ribs , boiled for tenderness in our own marinade are then chargrilled and finished with our legendary rib sauce.Our Salads:We have taken great care to cater for the carnivore, but for those less carnivorous - please assume we have done the same for you! In our range of salads, we use only the finest ingredients and carefully considered recipes which we constantly strive to Improve upon.
