We’ve found some of THE best places to eat steak in the whole of the North of England. Whether you’re cut of choice is sirloin, ribeye, t-bone, fillet or rump there’ll be a restaurant here that can satisfy even the most meaty of meat eater’s requirements.
Porterhouse Butcher & Grill, Newcastle
This unique and modern take on a butcher shop is a new addition to Fenwick Newcastle’s fantastic food hall. The focus of Porter House Butcher & Grill is simple; to serve great meat, showcasing quality, flavour and provenance. The house beef is from native breeds traditionally reared on the Glenarm Estate in Northern Ireland. They also serve a selection of seafood, small plates and an à la carte main.
Churrasco Steakhouse, Liverpool
Churrasco Steak House brings a bit of Texan soil to Merseyside; they even do a Texan afternoon tea. Diners can opt to take on the ‘Challenge 35’; a 35oz ‘Tomahawk Steak’ with sides that, if devoured within 30 minutes, is free of charge. Bring on the meat sweats!
The Curing House, Middlesbrough
We wrote about The Curing House way back in September 2016 and we’ve dined quite a few times since.
The Curing House is a unique charcuterie bar and restaurant at the heart of Middlesbrough’s independent dining quarter. The steaks here are often raved about on social media and TripAdvisor; salt aged and served smoked with Au Poivre sauce and beef dripping chips. Their infamous steak night offering will also be restarting soon so keep your eyes on their social media updates.
The Rib Room at Ramside Hall, Durham
Perhaps one of the finest dining experiences in the North East, The Rib Rooms at Ramside Hall is an AA award-winning restaurant. Steaks are their house speciality, where they serve local beef, matured for 32 days. They showcase an extensive wine list of 50 hand picked wines – the perfect accompaniment.
When GQ Magazine reviewed Manchester’s Hawksmoor they said, ‘There’s nowhere else that combines steaks of this quality with drinks of this calibre’. Impressive.
Before opening the restaurant, the owners travelled the world looking for the world’s best beef. They concluded that carefully reared cattle in Britain produced the finest steaks.
Did you know that the famed Japanese Wagyu was once crossed with British breeds to improve the flavour in the 19th century?
Gaucho is a renowned name in London with regional restaurants in both Leeds and Manchester. The restaurant’s philosophy is that every guest should experience a little bit of Argentine life. Their ‘electro brunch’ is really eye-catching; an all inclusive, albeit smaller, menu where you can order dishes as many times as you wish. Prices start from £49.95 per person.
The Rythre Arms Steakhouse, Tadcaster
Quoting their website, The Rythre Arms has been the ‘Steak Mecca’ of Yorkshire for nearly 35 years. The steaks served have been both butchered and matured on site with each dish cooked to order. Their niche is that they offer an impressive range of homemade sauces to accompany the steak of your choice. Many recent reviews have said that if you’re a steak lover, this place isn’t to be missed!
