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.

    We had a lovely meal for our wedding anniversary. Enjoyed the tasting menu and wine pairing. The team that look after you are very attentive without being overbearing Worth taking your time, get there a little early and have a cocktail at the bar. I enjoyed the night.. All tasting menu was good but steak let it down, it was all fat on my share. The other half was good. I perhaps would have sent it back if it wasn’t my anniversary

    Used to be one of my favourite restaurants in London. But the food has gone downhill over the years, the king crab was over cooked and dry. And the prices have sky rocketed

    The long bench tables aren’t a great format for dates, and the clientele was a weird mix of families and later night diners which didn’t create a buzzing atmosphere you’d want in a supposedly trendy place. The over crammed cold tanks of crab at reception didn’t look v humane. The meat cuts were good and tasty; our waitress was a laugh. I won’t be hurrying back though as it was v expensive relative to other meat focused offerings

    Thank you for this visit! We absolutely enjoyed our dinner. The service was amazing, we felt welcome. We have great stories about meat and other stuff from the menu. Prices are high, but you get really nice experience. It is definitely worth it. And I should mention oysters - one of the best oysters me and my husband ever tried! :) This time we didn't drink alcohol, and we were happy to enjoy a non-alcoholic mocktail which was really tasty! I could switch to non-alcohol for that! :) Next time, I would love to try some of your other cocktails! See you!

    Second time dining at Beast; overall a good experience. What let down the rating was being up sold an off menu cut of Spanish steak - told it was the best on offer - only to find it sub-par compared to Nebraska rib-eye which we also ordered.

    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!

    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.

    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.
