7 Places to Celebrate British Beef Week
Updated: May 3
Sorry my veggie and vegan friends this one isn't for you! But if meat is your thing, then you will want to join me in celebrating one of my favourite treats (I prefer it raw by the way).
British Beef Week is run by Ladies in Beef (no, not Lady GaGa) and is back in 2021 for its 11th year.
You can join your humans in celebrating all things beefy at these 7 dog friendly places until April 30th.
Shake Shack have 16 locations across London serving up tasty burgers made from 100% grass-fed Aberdeen Angus Beef and an all-beef German hot dog.
Four Legged Foodies are welcome at all locations and can either share the human's burgers or get their own special treats of Red Velvet Biscuits by Outsider Tart, served with or without custard.
The Eagle in Farringdon is currently closed because they can't offer outside dining but we had to mention them as their beef is off-the-scale amazing!
This pared back gastropub dispenses with frills and gimmicks to concentrate on serving up food to die for and is one of our must try recommendations to all our friends.
Menus are created daily and announced on @eaglefarringdon each morning. Beef dishes include things like Steak Sandwich and Bifana Marinted Rump.
You can have a belated beefy celebration with them when they re-open on May 17th.
The New Orleans Po Boy sandwich is the speciality of Poor Boys in Kingston and you can add Beef Brisket to your sandwich, mac n cheese or have it on its own. Visit their website for menus and @eatpoorboys for updates and mouth-watering photos.
The beef is dry aged grass-fed Scottish Beef and is marinated and slow cooked to give that authentic Louisiana taste.
The restaurant has outdoor seating in a quiet side street in Kingston town centre and Four Legged Foodies are always warmly welcomed.
London House in Battersea is a Gordon Ramsay restaurant so obviously you can expect a high standard of food and their steak frites will not disappoint.
Their pretty terrace looking out onto Battersea Square is currently open for all-day dining and the restaurant will re-open on May 17th.
We couldn't talk about beef without mentioning Chateaubriand Mondays* at Gazette. Grab a friend (I'm always free on Mondays) and share a 500g cut of French Charolais & Black Angus, 100% grass fed beef which is naturally reared in Surrey & aged for 28 days.
*single portions are available from 6pm every Monday for just £14.50.
Other French beef classics such as steak tartare, bavette and entrecote are always available.
They currently have outside dining at all 4 of their London locations and booking is recommended though not essential.
Some people think of Argentina when you mention good beef and that's exactly what you get at Gaucho.
Gaucho steaks come from premium Black Angus cattle who graze on seventeen different types of grass from the Pampas provinces of Argentina, in an area famed for its fertile soil. Four Legged Foodies are always welcome at their Richmond and Hampstead restaurants.
7 of their 12 London restaurants are open for outside dining and the rest will open on May 17th. You can also get their finish at home boxes delivered nationwide. Visit their website for more details.
I hope you enjoy British Beef Week, please let me know of any recommendations for Four Legged Foodies and tag @the4leggedfoodie in your dining out photos for a feature!
