Boxcar Butcher and Grill
We are a casual dining restaurant, with a small area of outdoor seating, main dining area, rear dining area under a full-opening skylight and a lower-ground seating area for 20 covers overlooking the kitchen and charcoal grill.
Consistently good, and they make a mean! Old Fashioned
The burger: best I’ve ever had. Absolutely amazing. Also lovely interior, really friendly staff, and great cocktails.
Loved, loved our dinner here the other night! Delicious steaks, roasted parsnips, and beet salad, and excellent/reasonably-priced Barolo. Nice, casual service and space, too.
Great food, good service, nice place. Surely not cheap as everything in London
One of the best steaks I've ever had! So so good, really enjoyed it!
Very welcoming service by our very knowledgeable server. The food was absolutely amazing, good quality ingredients and tasty, all accompanied by a great selection of wines. Will definitely be coming back again to try a bit more of the menu!!
Went on a quiet, rainy Monday lunchtime. Staff were friendly and extremely helpful. Food was absolutely awesome. Looking forward to coming back.
Excellent food - the steak was excellent, but what would you expect coming from Yorkshire! Lovely little restaurant, prices not bad for London. We didn't find the waiter over friendly - he did his job, but not with a smile! Wanted a night cap, but we were too late as finished at 10.30!
Excellent value; terrific steak, Very Attentive staff
Great steak and service
Best steak I've ever had. That's including some celebrities restaurants I've been to. Best to get one of the chef's special steak that is only available on the day. There is a cheaper burger menu as well if your wallet is not so deep.
Stunning food, wonderful service and the Pinot Noir is perfect for the steak. Thank you very much.
Had a brilliant meal at Boxcar. The T-bone steak was amazing. The staff were super helpful. All in all a very enjoyable experience and I would go again.
A friend recommended me to go after 3pm to enjoy 50% on the burger. I looked at the website on Friday before making my reservation to check it was possible. I booked for Sunday where I was charged full price and no mention of the 50% off. It was also removed from the website... for a burger it is a big expensive as you have to add fries for 4£. Also not a good place for dessert. A bit disappointed by the price but happy with the waitress who was polite and the place which wasn't too noisy and clean.
Visited twice the weekend.
Burgers and steak delish.
First time for breakfast today. Also lovely 10/10. Thank you
Lovely food and lovely staff. Would definitely go again
Great for lunch and dinner, excellent location. A bargain.
Really great food; the steak was the star of the show
It took over an hour to get our order even though the restaurant wasn't especially busy. Even then they missed out one item. Also the steak in my salad tasted and smelled so old I couldn't eat it.
The only thing you need to sort is the front door which guest keep leaving open and there was a cold draught
Very good food, friendly and helpful staff.
Only comment would be about calculating the price for the butchers cuts so would suggest making that a bit clearer. But otherwise a really lovely evening was had.
Visited on a quiet Saturday lunchtime and had no trouble finding a table. We only wanted lunch so skipped small plates and went straight to a steak and veggie burger. The steak was fine, although under seasoned. The veggie burger was tasty but had perhaps been sat a little too long in the pass and was a little dried out. Those dishes were quite good value but we made the error of ordering sides which, as is often the way, seemed out of kilter pricing wise. Tasty though. Dessert list too small to tempt us.
All in all a perfectly fine lunch, we might go back.
The burger and veggie burger was awesome. Food was great. Service could have been faster.
The very very loud table of 6 next to us made our conversation impossible. I didn’t want excruciating details of the 5 year dating history of the next table couple... her relationship with her mother and aunt etc. painful.
Better table placement??
Food, wine etc was excellent but the waiters lack of English led to a wrong meal being delivered and a lengthy ordering process as we kept having to repeat our orders and ask him to repeat things because we could not understand him nor us! We ordered a "bean" burger, he must have heard "beef" burger so when our vegetarian received a plate full of meat she was not too happy (!) but we could all understand how the issue arose, all laughed about it and it was replaced with full apology.
I thought the service was great and the quality of the food makes a good deal - value for money. It is a very nice venue and i could easily think about organising important dates, events with friends and even business dinners at this restaurant. Good atmosphere and good space to have conversations over a nice meal.
i would emphasise that it is important for the waiters to take a little bit of more time with the customers and explain a bit more the options that aren't shown in the menu. I believe more alternatives get somebody like me even more excited about discovering this restaurant that, in my opinion, has a lot to offer.
Otherwise, well done! I will be very happy to come back soon.
Came here for dinner for my bf birthday had a couple of burgers. Burgers were nice was not too keen on the chips though as they had weird rosemary sprinkle on them and were very thin and dry but everything was edible. The service was good although the staff are very busy. Overall I do like Boxcar (I always go to their bakery/cafe which I love as it is so chilled) and was fairly good value for money. I don't think I would go back though as I was not overwhelmed but the steaks and food other people were eating looked really nice and the atmosphere was really nice.
OMG - what a find. Awesome steaks/burgers, great staff and a kitchen that deals in magic. A must try!!
This restaurant was just a few minutes walk from our hotel. We had chosen the restaurant as the menu suited our family. The steak and burgers here are above average but we have had better. Unfortunately our visit was ruined as we were sat by 3 men who were obviously worse for wear and were very loud and couldn’t string a sentence together without using bad language. The staff did nothing until my husband advised the manager that if he didn’t ask them to stop with the language then my husband would. This was all in front of our 13yr old son.
This was okay - we came here for my Cousin's birthday. Food was okay, the steak was chewy but the burgers were good. Sides were nice. The waiter maybe couldn't quite hear what we were saying so was repeating incorrect orders to us (eg we said three glasses for the wine, he repeated two...). Thankfully this was a chilled evening so wasn't too much of a problem.
Lovely ambience and vibes
USP is steak; I ordered very rare ribeye, I said almost “bleu”; steak was medium-well done. Replacement steak was rare but tasteless. Singed tomato on side, inedible . Strange spinach. Chips & duckfat potatoes both fine. Not likely to go back.
Amazing food with leaning towards steak , the service was friendly & professional . The wine recomendation was excellent . I tried the mixed platter which was gorgeous followed by mouth wateringly tender Chateaubriand. I will definately be exploring the menue at Boxcar when I am next in London .
The burger was amazing, messy and tasty
Good steak for london, decent sides as well. Service good as well
Group of 6 for Sunday lunch. Food order came 1.30mins after order taken. Burgers over cooked and cold. Roast beef and pork ok. Gave us 5% off bill for slow service. Shame nice ambience but over rated food and poor value for money
Very good! Staff is very friendly!!
Had no idea what to expect, was very pleasantly surprised. Great service and an excellent steak for a very reasonable price
6 of us went for dinner, they did not have enough of the wagyu steak for all which was fine, however 4 did order. Ten mins later they did not have enough leaving just 3. One came out well done and should have been medium rare and amazingly they found a spare steak. Food was nice and well priced but because it all felt a bit sus even with a 11 quid discount I wouldn't go back
Fab dinner with my Dad after Christmas shopping. The food did not disappoint. I’ll be back
My new favourite escape, just minutes from the madness of Oxford street. Cosy and calming restaurant. Delicious burgers!
