Apologies, but there is no outside pic to accompany this post – It was lashing it down with rain throughout our short stay in London, so photo taking wasn’t an option outside…
A steak restaurant chain in London, Flat Iron has quite a few branches. There isn’t a reservation option, so I am afraid if there is a line, then just go ahead and join it.
Cool ice block!
Each table is given one of these. The popcorn is quite salty, but it is also pretty tasty, using beef fat to give it the flavour.
I did quite want the burger, too, but figured a steak and a burger was overindulgence…
These aren’t particularly useful to everyone who walks in and eats here, but I enjoyed looking at it. I have a bit of a background in cattle and sheep farming, so these things tend to (sadly) interest me.

The steak is already cut for you, but doesn’t that mini clever look fun?
Let me tell you, it doesn’t seem like the most prized cut from the animal, but this steak is pretty damn good. I always get my steak Medium Rare, and this was right on the money. Cooked the perfection, seasoned beautifully and presented nicely. You should’ve seen my face when it arrived.
The chips are deep fried in beef dripping so have a beefy flavour punch that is surprising. They are also pretty good – dip them in the dreamy bearnaise sauce and you’re cooking on gas!
The spinach was good, but possibly too salty for my liking. However, it’s nice to get some greens down you.
When you’ve paid be sure to stop by the ice cream on the way out (it is FREE, so why wouldn’t you?!).
The chocolate ice cream (only one flavour) was deliciously rich, especially when dipped into this chocolate shavings.
It didn’t last long, let me tell you that!
