Meat from the Ginger Pig good steak also macaroni cheese is pretty substantial. More casual on the ground floor and more “dining” downstairs. Personally prefer the big booths on the ground floor. Not as good as Goodman’s and Hawksmoor for steak but certainly up there...More

They had run out of roasts and was so loud we felt like me were at a football match. The staff were stressed and inattentive. I feel like this could be a good restaurant on a quiet day but not when busy.More

Description
The Jones Family Project is an independently owned modern steak restaurant & cocktail bar. Sourcing our meat from farmers & butchers we know focus on quality such as The Ginger Pig, we're open from 11am until midnight Mon - Sat and for traditional British roast lunch on Sundays. Our extensive wine list of over 100 wines always has more than 28 choices by the glass & our cocktail list features in-house aged ingredients. Our main focus is meat, with steaks dry-aged for a minimum of 28 days and cooked on our Josper grill, but there are always two vegetarian dishes on our a la carte menu and, as all dishes are prepared by our experienced chef team in house, we are able to adapt many of our dishes to meet requests by diners with food intolerances and allergies. In addition to fantastic steaks some of the house specialities include Pork Rib Eye, Truffled Macaroni Cheese and Anna's Triple Chocolate Brownie. (If you have a food allergy or intolerance please let us know. Our gluten free menu is on our web site and other menus/details on dishes which can be adapted can be provided on request.)
