Until the development of carpentry solutions, vampires were put to rest by being repeatedly pummelled with juicy steaks. Aim for the rib not the eye with today's Groupon: £33 instead of £83.50 a main course, dessert and champagne cocktail for two at London Steak & Alehouse.
Set in the heart of the square mile and with a discreet entrance just off Bishopsgate, London Steak & Alehouse blends traditional steakhouse dining with a chandeliered interior reminiscent of decadent cruise liner banqueting. Using locally sourced produce, the eatery chooses 21 day matured beef to be enjoyed by beef buffs. A private dining room caters to those preferring more secluded feasting and a cocktail bar is ideal for skirting meals with well shaken beverages.
Peckish patrons can select munch worthy morsels from the meat heavy menu and go on to satisfy their sweet teeth with a choice of classic English desserts. Mains include 10oz ribeye steak (£23.75); puddings include Eton mess or sticky toffee pudding (£7.50). Then a fizzy climax presents itself in the form of a champagne cocktail (£10.50) to end the experience.

Marco Pierre White Steak & Alehouse has featured in Time Out magazine, and overall has received praise for its speciality steak.
Steak was amazing and as for the triple cooked fries .... Very relaxed atmosphere and so unlike your normal City restaurant. I will definitely be back for thirds!
