Cattle Steakhouse does the job in Woking
By Aku Fu
In deepest darkest Woking, there used to be a Steakout; now there’s Cattle Steakhouse.
And it seems as though not many changes were needed given how the previous setup was tailor-made for this new restaurant. Even the menu looks similar to the previous owner’s.
As a large group, we were able to try a variety of items, with some basic starters, chicken fillet steaks, T-bone steak, and various burgers including a double decker and a chicken steak.
My chicken fillet steak came out sizzling. It was chargrilled with a nice garlic and chilli sauce. I had wedges, and a Snickers milkshake.
The milkshake could have been bigger and should have been blended some more. Instead, it contained large pieces including a large lump at the end.
Wedges were standard packet ones, and my steak was not as flavoursome as it looked. However, drowning it in the optional garlic sauce allowed me to finish the job.
The T-bone was an average well-done cut, but nothing especially juicy. Normally we would not order this, but did so at the recommendation of a diner who claimed it was nice.
While the burgers were sufficiently stacked, the starters weren’t very imaginative. The cheesy bites and sweet potato fries did feel packet bought too.
Being from London, and having been to a fair share of similar such burger and steak joints there, Cattle Steakhouse’s food unfortunately did not make an impression.
The place, in general, was busy, with a varied crowd for a weeknight.
And although most of our local company had not revisited this place in months, they did see it as one of their only Halal options for satisfying future needs.
It does make me wonder why the original “Don’t just eat out, Steakout” had to close.
In any case, bog standard, meaning it was good enough with good mains.
Again, not worth a 30 mile drive if you’re far outside the area. However, it’ll deliver what it says on the tin.
