Description

With bartender of the year and former head mixologist at London Cocktail Club Andy Mil at the helm, guests can expect nothing but big surprises from Steam & Rye.

Boasting three bars and an eclectic interior designed by Hollywood set designer Jonathan Lee, a few steps through the door of Steam & Rye and you'll be blown away by its attention to detail: the decor boasts an air of 1940s glamour, fused with the romantic influence of the Wild West.

The kitchen is headed up by Celebrated Chef Andrew McLeish who will be fixing up a delightfully delicious array of USDA grain-fed beef from Greater Omaha, succulent BBQ spare ribs, and perfectly smoked pulled pork to keep even the most discerning of diners satisfied. With such an impressive food and drinks menu on offer, it becomes clear that guests at Steam & Rye are in for a multi-sensory tasting delight. Enjoy a few beverages in the First Class Cocktail Carriage, which has been modelled on the interior of New York's Grand Central Station. Try the Mississippi Lullaby, the Kansas City Shuffle or the Dead Man's Boot ... which is, surprise surprise, served from a boot.

I was a little disappointed that we missed the entertainment, started just as we left at 9pm. Also, I requested a special birthday cocktail for my sisters 40th and that didn't happen :( ... plus the case &a status cocktail offer I asked for, which is on the menu doesn't actually exist yet! But food was lovely and cocktails were amazing! visited Steam and Rye on 25 Mar 2017

The waitress Amy was nice but the food wasn't great and the cocktails weren't as I expected. In fact two of them never came in the glasses they were meant to, just in a basic tumbler and another one wasn't like the pictures on line at all. When we questioned this the bar staff looked at us in an unpleasant way and told us we were wrong even after showing him the picture !! visited Steam and Rye on 25 Mar 2017

The food was poor, 3 of us were dining there and each and every one of us were very unimpressed and the venue was freezing cold. So much so that all of the staff had their coats on, not conducive to an enjoyable lunch. Don't think we will be dining with you again! visited Steam and Rye on 22 Mar 2017

It was amazing! Had my birthday dinner the cocktails were to die for, and I loved the fact that me and my friends could ride the bull. It's something different. The food was great and prices were reasonable. The staff were very helpful and made my birthday special, special thanks to Alona! visited Steam and Rye on 21 Mar 2017

The staff at Steam & Rye were great. Our table was waiting for us as soon as we arrived and we had cocktails in our hands within about 5 minutes. The food was delicious with generous portion sizes too. And the main bar area was a lively and fun place to hang out after our meal. visited Steam and Rye on 18 Mar 2017

I want to thank everyone! But a special thank you to the amazing Norwegian blond lady that served us! She sorted out another table for us with more seats and was so helpful through out the evening. Also a massive thank you to the lovely lady at the door. We all had a great time. You do really have the best staff working at steam and rye. We were so looked after.

The bouncers were very fussy when we walked in, not allowing two girls in front of us in for no reason. 7 of us were shown to our table upstairs away from any entertainment so it was pretty boring as the place is known for entertainment. Then we ordered our food and you can tell they have a time limit on the table. I was no where near finished and my friends had all there plates were removed which left me feeling quite awkward. To which the waiter come along and took the side dish presuming I had finished and didn't even ask. Service was poor and to think they wack a service charge on top they do not deserve visited Steam and Rye on 18 Mar 2017

Visited for a lunch with a colleague. It was very bright inside and very lacking in atmosphere. There were plenty of what seemed like 'management' staff around but only one waitress running around. We had to wait a long time for our drinks which we could see sat on the bar, and the food wait was very long. When we did eventually get the food, there was a hair on my starter!!! Some items were missing and I would not say the quality justified the price. Overall very disappointing and I would not go here again. visited Steam and Rye on 14 Mar 2017

It was fab - fun place and great burger. Slightly OTT doormen / guest list etc. Don't go hoping to have a conversation over dinner as the music is rodiculously loud from very early on! Although the love music was good! . visited Steam and Rye on 02 Mar 2017

I would never go here again. Ever. I cannot stress that enough! I booked here a good month or so in advance for a birthday, and it ruined the evening. We were greeted at the door by a very rude member of staff (and her clipboard) who proceeded to look us up and down, finding no faults in our smart/casual attire she took it upon herself to deem men's Chelsea boots unacceptable to wear in the establishment - when contested, the bouncer (who I can only imagine, silently agreed she was as uptight as she seemed) let us in... And the first thing I saw? A man in white trainers and several in Chelsea boots - the horror! Such peasants daring to bring down this 'classy' venue(!) Not only were we seated in the wrong area (really what is the point in emailing/confirming over a month in advance with the customer where they want to be seated if you're not going to adhere to it?) but the food was overpriced, slow, underwhelming and salted to the max - I guess they want to ensure their customers order several of their obnoxious cocktails to forget about their terrible experience DO NOT order the dry burgers (at almost £16 they don't come with sauce or cheese) and I wouldn't even bother thinking about dessert! £5 for the chocolate strawberry sorbet cone AKA one scoop of sorbet in a cone, with two wafer thin slices of chocolate The only reason it's not one star is the blue cheese wedge salad, at £6.50 it's overpriced for a stack of iceberg lettuce with a few croutons, a smidge of bacon and lashings of blue cheese sauce BUT it did taste good, I guess I'm a sucker for cheese though? Still, not even cheese could redeem this awful venue, and trust me.. That's saying something! Overall, I would avoid, unless of course, you're planning to dine on average food, whilst overly loud S-Club tracks create ambience and you don't mind being greeted (or rejected) by a horse with a clipboard visited Steam and Rye on 25 Feb 2017

Went for a birthday dinner last night in the restaurant area. Great service from our waitress (I don't know her name but she was brunette and friendly) , food and drinks were good, our table was right by the window overlooking the club bit which we were happy with! The music was soooo good, from the live band to the dj. Would definitely come back just for the music / indoor staff who were really upbeat and helpful. But great music for sure. Only thing I would fault steam and rye on are their doormen. We had to wait in a queue in the cold and rain (despite having pre booked dinner reservations) while there was some ongoing dispute with the people in front. One person in our party was 8 months pregnant so it was unfair to make her stand and wait. The doormen were quite rude and snappy. This lead to us being late to our table. But once inside- lovely night had by all! Would definitely come back on a Saturday. Thank you! visited Steam and Rye on 25 Feb 2017

Music was excellent! Great band, and the DJ music was very good too! Service was pretty poor. We had a booth and it took 30mins for someone to even come over and see if we wanted to order, but we had to ask them to come over! Drinks were great! Food was average. Our server wasn't very good at all, very rude and made us feel guilty if we wanted something and she had to go and get it. Pretty sure it's her job. It was only little things like getting a jug of water for the table, getting the card machine for us to pay... not impressed. Overall was okay. I wouldn't be booking a table there again, maybe just come in for a drink next time. visited Steam and Rye on 22 Feb 2017

I had my hen night at steam and rye last August and due to a very unpleasant experience I was offered an opportunity to return and have a meal, I have to say it was the best food I have ever had in London!
