As the name suggests Butlers Wharf Chop House Restaurant is just the place if you're in the mood for something meaty – don't miss the grass-fed Speyside Angus X steaks. Elegant without being stuffy, it’s a relaxed riverside destination where provenance is key, with the likes of Select Butchery, H. Forman & Son smoked salmon, Carlingford Rocks Oysters and native lobster. Sit back and enjoy that famous view of Tower Bridge (from the terrace if you're lucky), you're in safe hands…

Private Dining

Our spacious, airy restaurant is a glowing tribute to a traditional English boating house or cricket pavilion with oak-lined walls and comfortable solid seating. In finer weather the doors can be opened on to the riverside terrace providing al fresco dining with the best view of Tower Bridge.

Great choice of delicious food. Staff were very attentive & informative about various options. Wine is somewhat over priced.
Fantastic location, great ambiance.
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and would return to dine in the near future.

Great location, right on the river Thames with perfect views of Tower Bridge. With its outside seating and floor to ceiling windows, was perfect for a hot Summer's night. Food was very good and service fast and friendly.

Had a nice evening, cocktails at the bar and dinner followed. The restaurant and views of tower bridge are wonderful. A couple of staff really stood out, one chap at the bar and the lady that served us made so much effort and were very warm and welcoming, the rest of the service was pretty slow and disjointed between areas. The food was fair for the price, but nothing special.

Shambolic throughout.

Started with no one to greet at the desk. After waiting for a while were shown to the table. The waiter was polite but not very attentive.

Food was over 80 minutes late for which they apologised. The lobster was over cooked and the hollandaise was split. Had to send the sauce back.

Had ordered tonic water which arrived after the plates were cleared 2 hours after we sat down. They didn’t charge for that.

The ambience is great extremely corporate and loud. Not good for date nights and occasions.

We left thankful that at least the coat check didn’t mess up.

Der Empfang war sehr freundlich und wir bekamen einen schönen Tisch zugewiesen. Die Vorspeise dauerte ungewöhnlich lange und wir erhielten unaufgefordert eine Entschuldigung des Managements mit dem Versprechen die Vorspeise nicht zu berechnen (was sich allerdings bei Rechnungserhalt nicht bestätigte).
Bei den Hauptgerichten war das Fleisch teilweise zu sehr schwarz gebraten, so dass es der Geschmack von verbranntem Fleisch leider dominierte.
Alles in allem eine echt tolle Location, die dem selbst gesetzten Anspruch noch ein wenig hinterher läuft.

Service was very slow even though the restaurant only had 2 or 3 tables occupied. The Rare breed smoked pork chop was so salty it was almost inedible. The staff were friendly and communicated well. Bit of a disappointment.

We had a lovely meal and always really enjoy dining here. Unfortunately they had such a busy lunch time session for Mother’s Day that that had sold out of many options by dinner time.

Excellent lunch today, I had a very well seasoned steak which was delicious accompanied by perfectly cooked chips. My client said it's one of the best steaks he's had so definitely a business lunch success here! The General Manager Danny does a fantastic job with his team to deliver such a great experience!

Good food. The restaurant was incredibly quiet for a Friday night. This did mean fast efficient service. Almost too efficient as main very quickly followed starter which made it feel a bit rushed. But the food was really good.

Pleasant location but the reception area is rather drab and unwelcoming. You rather feel you're walking in the back entrance not the front. Friendly staff but considering they were no where near full the service was generally underwhelming.

We were not demanding by any measure but the food was good but prices are very top end especially the vegetable at £4.50 per serving per person. for a table of seven that's £63 pounds on vegetables. We were told we needed one per person but not sure that was quite the case.

My dessert wine was served with black bits floating in it. I was with clients so no wanting to create a scene I left it.

The service was fair. Our food was a bit disappointing-the plaice was slightly oily and I did not like it very much. The dessert was also fair. I expected more taste and a more exciting menu after reading reviews.

The Butlers Wharf has amazing views of Tower Bridge and is situated on the waterfront.

The food we had was excellent, cooked well, nice wine and attentive service. The decor and seating are slightly bland and dated for compared to rival restaurants but other than that very good.

We went for my boyfriends birthday meal. The cocktail I had was lovely. Very impressed the layout was great. Lovely food and wine. Would definitely go back and recommend. Would like to try the other chop houses though. The view was fab, so very good for a special occasion. The only downside was that my boyfriend thought the steak we ordered wasn't the correct weight as advertised and to be honest 550g is a lot of meat and steak is filling but I agreed with him, I could have had more, which is unlike me. There might have been less on our board perhaps.
When my boyfriends dessert came out with the happy birthday writing on, there was no candle, which would have been nice, so his family could have sung to him. I feel the service charge was pretty steep also. The restaurant was very busy, but my brother in law ran out of wine and wondered where our bottle had been put.
I have to add the steak was amazing and my mother in law said it was the best she's had in ages.

It was my companion's 30th birthday and I made a note in the reservation. The staff were so thoughtful to greet us at our arrival and to have happy birthday written on the dessert. The food was very good but the service made the whole experience memorable.

The food was decidedly average to poor. They need to look up definition of cottage pie as mine was like a soup covered with thin layer of mash.
