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…

My husband and I went for a birthday celebration. The waiter was very good and the starter and wine were also very good. Our steaks were over cooked however, which would ordinarily not be a problem but the manager proceeded to argue with us that they were actually not over cooked and tried to tell us about the beef being dry aged which contributed to the brown color. Sorry, but we are from Texas and have eaten 21-day dry aged beef MANY times and the steaks were definitely over cooked. Very disappointed at his attempt of customer service if you can even call it that. Unfortunately the experience left a bad taste in our mouths so we will not return. There are plenty of other steakhouses in London who also serve 21-day dry aged beef that cook their steaks correctly and have great customer service as well.

The setting is fabulous, right next to the River Thames looking across to the City & Tower Bridge.

Due to Covid restrictions we had to eat outside, and it was exceptionally cold on the river with no shielding or wind breaks. The heaters were ineffective too, so the blankets provided were appreciated.

The steaks are excellent, but the bill ramps up when one adds single person portion side dishes at £5 each (chips, spinach, mushrooms or broccoli etc). With £15 for a starter, a meal for four was £350 including one of the cheaper bottles of wine.

Food ok. Despite the restaurant being only 1/3 full we were guided to a table squashed between two other couples. We requested to be seated somewhere else - much eye rolling and huffing we were finally seated elsewhere. service was brusque. Much hovering around the wine bottle and we were reminded 3 times that they wanted the table back after 90 minutes. Felt like being on a factory conveyer belt. Not a great experience.

Wonderful food as always. Friends had the Chateaubriand - very jealous - will definitely have that next time. Chicken livers as a starter were spicy and well flavoured.

As always a wonderful lunch. Sat outside in the unseasonal sun with a great view of Tower Bridge. This time last year we were opposite Tom Cruise and James Cordon filming on a boat! Service is subtle and well timed and food - livers ( exceptional and spicy) and steak ( slightly less tender than expected - but great taste ) was great. Very good value French Malbec - sub £30. Will be back in 4 weeks for a friends birthday!!

We were a group of four. COVID restrictions were in place with PPE and social distancing. Great service. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The roasted mushroom tartare was immense and I managed to get this as part of the a la carte menu instead of the set menu. My companions all enjoyed their meals and the cocktails and wine were delicious. All in all a lovely evening riverside.

- Given option to sit outside or inside.
- Outstanding service. I think her name was Dani or Jenny but I might be really far off 🤦
- We had: - Sweet chilli squid and rosemary sourdough, half lobster and lamb shank and both had sticky toffee pudding for dessert. Starter was good. Main and dessert were great.
- Lovely view of Tower Bridge
- Felt safe and as though precautions were being taken

The setting is what makes this restaurant. Food good steakhouse standards. Feels strange that the £17 fish comes with chips. But the £35 steak requires an extra purchase....

Went there on Saturday for my birthday

What a spectacular view we had sitting outside looking onto the river and sight of Tower bridge incredible

The service was very good but have to say on talking to my friends afterwards we were all let down by the food two of our party had steaks which were over done one couple had the chateaubriand which was enough for one person really but as it was my birthday my friends did not want to make a fuss

But what the bill came too and seeing we had no alcohol apart from one drink the bill was way over the top


Would I recommend the place to others for the site yes but on the food and value for money no

The biggest selling point of the restaurant is the amazing view of Tower Bridge. Some staff were friendly and others with little emotion, so odd at times.

Observation whilst at the restaurant, it's a first date hot spot with 5 tables near me on obvious first dates. Overall, good but not excellent
