When it comes to London’s eight ‘Royal Parks’, Hyde Park is surely one of the best known - from Speakers’ Corner to the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain, the 350 acres are full of famous landmarks and places to visit - as well as plenty of wide open spaces and quiet corners to unwind and relax.
If you’re an active type, then jog or cycle through the park, or even brave an open water swim in the Serpentine… alternatively, just admire the views across the lake from a waterside café. Whatever you end up doing, you’re going to get hungry and soon start looking for restaurants near Hyde Park.
The good news is that one of the best steak restaurants in town is close by - Zelman Meats. The clue’s in the name - the very finest steaks and meats on the planet, prepared and cooked by our fanatical chefs. Enjoy and experience the cuts, textures and different flavours of remarkable steaks, be they from Alberta, Brazil or Poland.

Plenty to do
Set in the heart of London, Hyde Park offers both world-class events and concerts, together with plenty of quiet places to relax and unwind.
What is there to do in Hyde Park? Where to start! There’s a reason it’s open from 5am to midnight - there’s so much to do…
As well as the packed schedule of summer gigs (Adele and The Rolling Stones just two of the artists who played recently) and the famous Serpentine (where you can boat or swim if you are bold enough), there are tennis courts, the Lido Bar & Cafe, Diana Memorial Fountain, Rose Garden and Hyde Park Playground. There’s also a Great Exhibition Virtual Tour to enjoy, and an array of wildlife to spot as you make your way around the park.
Where is Hyde Park?
Hyde Park is easy to find; in the very heart of the capital and bordered by Mayfair, Kensington and Belgravia, it is the largest of four Royal Parks that form a chain from the entrance of Kensington Palace through Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, via Hyde Park Corner and Green Park past the main entrance to Buckingham Palace.
Best of all, Zelman Meats is a five-minute walk from Hyde Park (or vice versa), and handy for both the Knightsbridge and Hyde Park Corner tube stations.
The best place to eat near Hyde Park
Whether it’s brunch, lunch dinner or simply some of our incredible cocktails, Zelman Meats should be your first choice of restaurants near Hyde Park. Yes, our menu is a meat feast, but there’s plenty of other temptations to boot; our sensational starters include such delights as Roasted Bone Marrow (as good as it sounds) Tiger Prawn Tempura, Beef Carpaccio and Lobster Croquettes, before you dive into the meat main courses.
The stars of our shows are the four prime cuts of steak - Canadian Rib-eye and Picanha, both grain-finished Angus beef from Alberta; then there’s the Holstein grass-fed Fillet from Poland; and last but not least grain-finished Black Angus beef from Brazil. For that extra flourish, add one of our sauces - Sriracha Mayo, Chimichurri, BBQ or Peppercorn. How about some melt-in-the-mouth Short Ribs? Ours are the highest standard - USDA, slow cooked with BBQ sauce - sensational.
In the mood for something else? Then how about our Seabass or Wagyu Burger? There are sides, of course, such as Triple Cooked Chips and Charred Hispi Cabbage, and if you have room there are desserts in the shape of a Tiramisu or Chocolate Brownie.
You may just want to pop into Zelman for cocktails; whether it’s a classic with our inimitable twist (our Old Fashioned ‘To The Bone’ is just that - Buffalo Trace Whiskey, beef fat, Malbec syrup and celery bitters) or something out of your comfort zone like the Zelman Daiquiri, Figgin’ Thyme, Spicy Thoughts and Blueberry Dreams.
If you don’t do alcohol or are simply giving booze the night off, then try our Mocktails. Choose from the Zelman Lemonade, Spice Apple Hit, Summer Sunrise, Amalfi Spritz, Red Passion, Fig Temptation, Mango & Orange Nectar and Blueberry Martini.
