About The Guinea Grill

SquareMeal Review

Bronze Award

A microcosm of vintage Mayfair ringing with claret-fuelled guffaws, The Guinea Grill nestles behind a Young’s pub frontage in the clubbiest of rooms, all clustered white-clothed tables, tartan carpets, wine cabinets and prints of ruddy-faced soldiers in a wood-panelled wrapper. A green-coated doorman and waiters in black waistcoats play their ever-smiling parts, while a lone chef tends the furiously hot grill behind displays of prime, dry-aged fillets, rib-eyes and rumps from the Scotch Beef Club – it’s all very “old school”. The kitchen also sends out acclaimed suet-crusted pies by the score, as well as more delicate dishes such as crayfish and crab cocktail, smoked Gressingham duck or grilled Dover sole, while big helpings of suitably calorific cheesecake or fruit crumble may necessitate some belt loosening. “Just the tonic on a rainy Mayfair night”, concluded one fan.

There is a bar, in Menlo Park, they call the British Bankers Club (which is sort of where this Animals riff stops scanning); last time I was there, I was the only Brit, I’m not a banker and it wasn’t really a club. The Guinea Grill, on the other hand, could be the home of the fabled BBC. The room is wood lined, the staff wear white aprons and the food is solid, boarding school grub. Oh, and almost everyone dinning there was in a pin-stripped blue, grey or blue-grey suit. And male. Our waiter was what I believe is technically known as a “character”. The character he most resembled physically was Mr Potatohead, but with an Italian accent. He needed a comedy pepper grinder, and his image would be complete. Starters were fine: asparagus, crayfish crab cocktail and smoked salmon, but the mains, ah; the mains. Steak. One is introduced to the steak at reception. And to the barbecue grill, upon which it will be transformed. Proper bone in rib, seared as requested; a bit of watercress; some chips; some mustard; and peas. Lovely. Or pie: thin, flaky, larded crust; juicy beef; rich unctuous gravy; and a Blackadder style frilly collar. Comfort food done to the highest standard.
