6. Gillray's London County Hall, London, SE1 7PB

On the part of the Southbank overlooking Parliament, Gillray's is the sort of place that will nonetheless give you red if you ask for blue: a steakhouse housed in a curved space whose plush, Art Deco-y vibe is reminiscent of a gentlemen's club... from back in the days when that unfortunately meant just what it sounded like.

7. Blacks Burgers 920 Brighton Rd, Purley, CR8 2LN

Blacks' concept is simple: good burgers with all the fixins. It bakes its buns and mixes its meat and sources fresh ingredients. And if you're feeling VERY hungry, try The Beast burger challenge, which consists of Europe's largest burger, weighing in at 7lbs of beef, nine bacon rashers, nine slices of cheese, a whole head of lettuce, and seven whole tomatoes, triple layered between a bun larger than your head, plus a pound's worth of skinny fries and a full-sized milkshake.
