Meat People


Meat People is a restaurant and cocktail bar 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 paneling 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 specialty cuts like Onglet or Bavette? These mouth watering cuts start at 200 grams and go up to however much your stomach can handle!!!

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 there’s nothing I love more than some fried chicken, it…
