New Steak House Opening in Hammersmith

Bar + Block offering 40% off food bill for six weeks

Oak tables and neon signs aim for contemporary feel

A new steak restaurant is set to open in Hammersmith at the end of February.

Bar + Block Is an all day dining steakhouse based in Brook House on Shepherd’s Bush Road. It will start serving customers on Monday 28 February and, until 10 April, your food bill could be discounted by 40%

The restaurant, which is owned by Whitbreads, promises an extensive range of prime cuts and high-quality dry aged steaks, hand crafted burgers, seasonal sides and light grazing plates. The venue will also feature an array of creative cocktails, craft brews and wines. Exclusive to Hammersmith is the new Cherry Bakewell Martini – a mix of Amaretto, Baileys, cherry syrup, milk and cream with a crumble and cherry top as a nod to the old Lyons Cake factory nearby.

The interior aims for a contemporary feel with an expansive bar area with space for 44 covers, oak-topped tables and an open kitchen.

Bar + Block’s steaks, from rump to ribeye, fillet to sirloin, are selected from British and Irish Angus breeds. Every steak is matured for at least 30 days and hand cut to size.

In addition to the classic cuts, there will be some speciality signature steaks including the 10oz Spiral Cut Fillet, created by spiral cutting the steak and marinating it in garlic and parsley for 24 hours; the Surf + Turf, an 8oz sirloin served with garlic jumbo king prawns; or if you’re really struggling to choose the Steak Sampler offers a trio of 4oz steaks — sirloin, fillet and rump.

The steak can be topped with a sauce of your choice — blue cheese, creamy mushroom & pancetta, béarnaise or peppercorn — served alongside a fresh house salad or beef dripping triple-cooked chips.

The Mighty Block Burger, an 8oz beef burger with melted mature Cheddar cheese sauce, crispy onions, pulled beef brisket, pickled cucumber spear and burger sauce, is served in a brioche bun with French fries.

Also on the menu is a range of grills, salads, sensational sides and sharing grazing plates, including the Sticky Charcoal-cooked Wings, Loaded Nachos Sharer and Jumbo Garlic Prawns whilst roast dinners will be served on Sundays.

For vegetarians, vegans and flexitarians, plant-based options include Cauliflower Wings in a crunchy parsley-seasoned batter and the Vegan Sloppy Joe Burger - a plant-based Garden Gourmetä patty topped with cheezy vegan slice and soya vegan sloppy joe mix.

Bar + Block’s offers a weekday Express Menu, from 11.30am to 5.00pm. Dishes include a Steak + Frites, a Buttermilk Chicken or Beef Burger, as well as a selection of sandwiches including Chargrilled Steak and an Open Club on stone-baked flatbread.

To get the discount book your spot online and quote code BJGUMXBC on your booking. The offer applies only dining from the main restaurant menu & Sunday Roast menu at Hammersmith Bar + Block. Breakfast, Lunchtime menu, Bar Snacks and Premier Inn Meal Deal are excluded. This offer is valid all day everyday excluding Fridays & Saturdays post 6pm.
