Meat People is a cocktail bar and restaurant in North London that has been established with the people in mind. Housed in a Grade II listed building, Meat People is a stylish venue, with a tiled ceiling and wooden panelling lining the walls; the steel-framed windows still evoke the era of the ocean liner, particularly in light of the mustard yellow upholstery and the tin-like hanging light fixtures. 

The drinks list is particularly impressive: Meat People mixes up a selection of classic cocktails using only the finest of spirits, alongside an extensive wine list and a selection of beers brewed locally, in Greenwich. The food is delightful, serving a variety of superb meat cuts sourced locally and from around the world: they serve only the highest quality cuts and only the freshest of ingredients, and receive glowing reviews with every dish. Why not try the Flat cut sharer? A spiral cut of prime rib, topped with a beautiful salsa, or maybe one of our speciality cuts like Onglet or Bavette? These mouth watering cuts start at 200 grams and go up to however much your stomach can handle!!! now

Now hosting a brunch that packs a punch. 10am - 4pm Saturday & Sunday, definitely one to check out.

Meat people is a cool bar and restaurant in Islington, ideal for a bite to eat in the evening, a couple of drinks after work, or even to get the party started before a big night out in North London.

Meat People - London Restaurant Review

Meat People - London Restaurant Review

I am a fully fledged, paid-up member of the meat-eating brigade. From dirty burgers slathered in cheese, bacon and pulled pork, to buttermilk chicken in syrup, London’s carnivorous offerings are increasingly bigger and brasher. While...

Gorgeous little restaurant and food. However, the music did not fit the settings and really detracted from the ambiance. With more appropriate music, this restaurant would be excellent,. visited Meat People on 03 Dec 2016

Food was delicious as usual but service was really poor. And if you're going to do brunch, have skimmed milk available for coffees. visited Meat People on 13 Nov 2016

Excellent rib-eye steak and friendly environment!! Totally recommended! visited Meat People on 28 Oct 2016

Atmosphere was nice, service was fairly basic but fine and the staff were polite. Steak was nicely cooked however greens lacked flavour, and peppercorn sauce tasted more like a gravy you would expect on a roast dinner than to accompany a fillet steak. For these prices, I have eaten at far better restaurants. visited Meat People on 28 Oct 2016

Great meal and very friendly staff-my only concern is that the place can get extremely hot (they need to crack open a few windows or install a few fans)Not ideal on a hot and humid night! Imran visited Meat People on 03 Sep 2016

We have eaten here several times. The steaks are always a favourite of ours and we have never been let down. Cooked just as we ask for. Staff are always friendly and attentive. GrahamN visited Meat People on 27 Mar 2016

Possibly the most beautifully presented food I've ever seen on a plate (lucky that it is delicious too!). The staff are attentive and cocktails are delightful - what more could you want!
