Untamed Gastronomic Experience Featuring Norwegian King Crab & Nebraskan Angus Beef.
The candle lit atmosphere and grandest vibe remains but we have encased it all in a modern, elegant and rustic setting, where everyone is welcomed to enjoy the feast.
Guests are welcomed to indulge in pre-dinner drinks in our full service bar, a flamboyant cocktail or a chilled glass of champagne, the choice is yours.
As the elevator doors open, you come face to face with your dinner.
Looking at our in-house drying Nebraskan Steaks and peering at the Norwegian King Crabs through our floor to ceiling tanks, having the opportunity to hold the Beast that is the King Crab will signal the start of your Beast Experience.

Wine was overpriced for what we got (210 pound Malbec that was underwhelming) but otherwise one of the best steaks I’ve had in a long time. Will be back but choosing my own wine next time!

Perfect nigh!

Starters were all good, you can definitely try anything on the menu.

The Norway king crab tasted absolutely delicious, and the sweetness of the meat was the key. Must have!

40 days Angus from Scotland, we had it medium rare. Tender, juicy, especially with the truffle source, tasted rich and long finish. perfect!

Hugely overpriced and also rushed to finish despite two free tables on either side of us! £700 bill for 4 people felt a tad much when rushed!

This is normally a great restaurant which I love. My bad review is due to the fact that after making a booking which was not only confirmed but also reconfirmed the day before, the restaurant was closed when we got there. It was my boyfriend’s birthday so obviously was pretty disappointing to say the least.

Great food , good services however the service charge is high and the more you order the more you’re paying for the service charge which really isn’t the point of service charge

Way over priced for what it is. Prices are detached from reality. £20 one scallop? £42 for one king prawn? Not a portion. Just one item. I don't think there is a place in the world Beast "fishes" the scallops & prawns from that could justify these prices. Overall a small dinner for 4 people with just 2 glasses of inexpensive wine, no deserts or cocktails was £540.

Excellent night out at Beast - we didn't sit down until 21:30 (through choice) and at no point were we hurried. In fact it was only when we looked up at the end of the night we realised we were the last people in the place :-). Food was great and well explained, wouldn't have the same thing next time but there will definitely be a next time!

I'm surprised at some of these reviews since we thought the food was outstanding. The steak from Australia and Germany were by far the best we have ever had- anywhere! They take extreme pride in their process and describing the different cuts of meat- why & how they will taste different. It was unlike any other steak house experience. The communal seating could make for an interesting conversation if it's really busy, but we dined about 7:00pm and it wasn't crowded. I loved the ambiance with the long tables and antique candelabras. Worth the expense! Will definitely be back!

Didn’t like the steak at all. The USDA bone-in rib eye had no flavor whatsoever. Felt as if it wasn’t dry-aged long enough. Tasted just like a raw warm meat. It has also happened to be under-cooked (ordered medium-plus, arrived medium-rare-ish), so I returned it. To be fair, on the positive side, the manager offered me another (Cumbrian) cut as a compensation, which I accepted because I was hungry ;-), but didn’t like it either :-( (PS. Goodman’s USDA bone-in rin eye is so, so much better!)
