Steak
We believe that to produce the best food, you should work with all your suppliers on a close and personal basis. We acquired our own butchers, Jefferies in Kingston, so that we could control our meat all the way from the abattoir to the table. This helps ensure that our steaks and handmade burgers are of the highest quality.



In 1999, the boys decided that they wanted to bring a high-street, high-quality steak concept to London, Black & Blue and the first modern American steakhouse in the capital, was born.

Staff were fantastic and friendly from the outset. Service was quick and food was great. Happy hour on cocktails from 4-6. Cocktails are reduced by about £4. This was a welcome surprise. My wife and I had a great evening and will definitely be back.

We went on Sunday night, the service and the food were the best we’ve had in London for many years, water was brought to the table and refilled without being asked, wine was excellent value, and the steaks were cooked exactly how we wanted, Overall we were very impressed

What can i say, got recommended by a friend, Staff were very friendly, once at table my chair was very dusty, prawns in bread cream were very nice but my steak was a let down. I've had better steak its a shame i won't be going back.

Our first experience of Black & Blue at Borough Market turned out to be quite excellent. I needed somewhere close to London Bridge station for a family re-union meal for 3 couples. The restaurant is ideally located at the back of Borough Market - neatly and quirky built around and under Victorian brick railway arches ( despite having a busy railway operating above the restaurant I was the only one of the 6 of us that could even sense the occasional train). The character of the place, the booths were ideal for our event , the service was efficient, friendly and obtrusive. The food was really good quality - we had 3 courses - all different and all met with a good response from round the table. A couple of us had cocktails instead of dessert -- and they were a really good! When the bill arrived I was pleasantly surprised with how reasonable it was - I was expecting it to be more than it was. I shall certainly be going back.

Four of us had a very nice dinner. The waitstaff were really friendly and helpful. Our friends loved the mocktails, and we shared a very nice bottle of wine. My ribeye was a little tough, and my husband's 'medium' steak frites was far too rare for his liking. But overall it was a good meal.

Ambiance and food was very good, the service was excellent and very friendly. I would have liked a wider wine menu, but that's just me and a small thing really. Overall I would recommend and definitely go back again.

We had a lovely birthday lunch on Saturday. The staff were lovely and happy for us to move to a sunny table outside. The set menu was excellent value, the meals were fresh and delicious especially the steak and frites. I would definitely recommend Black& Blue. Thank you!

The thing that makes Black and Blue my favourite place in Borough Market is how amazing the front of house staff are. You get a glorious welcome, big smiles and friendly attitude and they always seem genuinely interested that you are enjoying your meal. My steak was cooked to perfection too and I can't wait to go back again.

Lovely evening. Only disappointment was I had put a note on my booking stating it was a birthday and no fuss was made about it, no point letting them know. Food was great though

My friend and I enjoyed very nice food and a relaxed vibe. We had the set menu with some delicious wine. The steak was exactly as it should be and we had a good catch up, lapsing into Friday afternoon.

Great place for a celebratory late lunch and long business chat. We all had the steak frites which were excellent, as was the service. Early in the week it wasn't packed with customers and was pretty quiet. Great for conversation.

Lovely restaurant, great decor, airy,good ambiance.
Food is really good and not too expensive. Unfortunately wine is expensive. Like the offer for Cocktails.

Staff are pleasant and friendly.

Would recommend this place for a posh restaurant with good food and reasonable prices for London
