The stylish and modern all-day dining steakhouse and cocktail bar has an extensive range of high-quality steaks, handmade burgers and grazing plates, alongside creative cocktails, and craft brews.

Carnivorous cravings will be satisfied with an ever-changing selection of quality steaks prepared for you by expert chefs on-site. All Bar + Block’s steaks, from rump to ribeye, fillet to sirloin, are selected from British and Irish Angus breeds renowned for their taste, tenderness and the unique marbling that runs throughout each cut. Every steak is matured for at least 30 days and hand cut to size, matching your appetite.
There’s a host of speciality signature steaks, in addition to the classic cuts, including the 10oz Spiral Cut Fillet, created by spiral cutting the steak and marinating it in garlic and parsley for 24 hours; the Surf + Turf, an 8oz sirloin with a half lobster tail; or if you’re really struggling to choose the Steak Sampler – three 4oz steaks, sirloin, fillet and rump. Whatever steak tantalises your tastebuds, each comes with samphire, a choice of sauce, and house salad or beef dripping triple-cooked chunky chips.
As well as steaks, Bar + Block is big on burgers with every patty hand-ground, freshly prepared on-site and cooked to order. The must-try is the signature Mighty Block Burger – an 8oz beef burger with melted mature Cheddar cheese sauce, crispy onions, pulled beef brisket, pickled cucumber spear and burger sauce; served in a brioche bun with French fries.
Also on the menu is a range of grills, salads, sensational sides and sharing grazing plates, including the House Sharing Block, piled high with crispy rosemary and buttermilk chicken goujons, honey and mustard mini sausages, mini-Korean-style BBQ pork riblets, double-cooked potato wedges, garlic flatbread and fresh rocket, served with a reduced-fat soured cream and a Korean-style BBQ dip. Or opt for the towering Trash Can Nachos Sharer, a stack of tortilla chips layered with spicy beans, Cheddar cheese, tomato salsa, cheese sauce, chilli, and coriander.
Plant-based options include Cauliflower Wings in a crunchy parsley-seasoned batter and the Vegan Sloppy Joe Burger – a plant-based Beyond Burgerä topped with smoky chipotle and soya vegan sloppy joe mix
Finish off on a sweet note with an Insta-worthy Melting Chocolate Dome – pour hot chocolate toffee sauce over this show-stopping dessert to reveal triple chocolate brownie pieces with vanilla dairy ice cream. There is also a Sticky Toffee Pudding, Lemon Tart, Eton Mess Sundae and Meringue Kisses.
