National Steak Day is coming to London

Thursday 25 April will see the launch of the UK’s inaugural National Steak Day, offering up mega discounts from some of your the best steak joints in the capital.

The day will be dedicated to championing the mighty steak and plenty of your favourite steak restaurants are taking part in the festivities.

Founder of National Steak Day, Nathan Evans says, “With the likes of World Porridge Day and National Doughnut Week in existence, it seems strange that we do not currently have a National Steak Day. We want to celebrate quality meat and quality steak. We appreciate that for health and environmental reasons we need to be eating less red meat, but the message we want to communicate is that if you are going to be eating meat you should be consuming the best of the best."

To take part, all diners have to do is sign up on the official National Steak Day website, and download a discount voucher for the restaurant of their choice. Options will include 25% off steak and special menus.
