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.

I booked this restaurant for my partner and I for Valentines evening. When we arrived , our table was not ready and we were asked to get a drink at the bar which was fine. However it took over FIVE minutes until we got served. After finally being seated we were given a menu which we questioned as when we booked this table there was no mention that on this day ONLY there would be a set menu. Once of the reasons I booked this was because of the varied menu that I knew we would both enjoy. But we both disliked all three things on the starter menu , the main course was ok ( steak ) but dessert my partner did not like one bit. When the waiter cleared our dessert plates he could see my partners had not been touched but did not ask any questions about this and just took the plates away. Very disappointed with the whole evening experience and would not recommend. If you do book it make sure there is not a set menu otherwise your go home very hungry like we did last night !!!!!!

Waited 15 mins for table but had a drink at the bar. Ed the barman very friendly. Unfortunately the only good service all night. Food was good but were never asked if everything was ok. Medium rare steak was blue but by the time we could get anyone’s attention it was too late to ask for a bit more cooking. Disappointing that I’m a half full restaurant a bit more care and attention was not given. Good food but will not return

Hadn’t been here for many years and the food was every bit as good as I’d remembered. Our service was polite but very slow - table at 8 and main course arrived at 9:45. There seemed to be enough staff to cover the floor so I assume the delay was in the kitchen. Would have appreciated some information from the server though instead of having to attract their attention and complain. Only mar on a nice evening. Once the food arrived it was delicious.

Good value with the Evening Standard offer. The food was very good, but the restaurant was incredibly noisy - the wood interior, though lovely looking, seems to make it very echoy and it sounded like the pace was full to bursting when in fact it was not. This was a major detractor to an otherwise very nice evening, with good service and a nice ambiance.

We went for the Evening Standard set menu and the quality was great, especially for the price. The service was good although they needed more staff that evening as they only appeared to have two waiters. I will return.

The restaurant was so noisy that it was uncomfortable to be in. We quickly ate our starter and main course and left. The restaurant should think before accepting large parties and should also reconsider the design of the space to introduce many more sound-absorbing materials.

What a disappointment. With friends over from the US and Brazil I wanted to treat them - the waiter was miserable, the food was nothing special, we couldn't hear each other speak, the bill was completely wrong and it was extortionate for what it was. Will not be going back.

Extremely loud. Almost impossible to talk in a normal voice and be heard. Waiter was excellent. Management was poor and did not allow the waiter to handle the situation. Management refunded a portion of our meal, but we would prefer to pay for a good experience. We will not return.

Used to come to the Chop house frequently but haven’t been in the last 2 years. Was surprised by the paired back menu. What we are though was good but be warned the wine is very expensive. (£50 for a normal price of £15 for a Chilean red).

Lovely location but food was a little disappointing. I had a lamb roast and it was overcooked and dry.
In fairness somebody else had beef roast which looked much nicer.

We booked for my son’s 18th birthday & received complimentary champagne & also a sorbet desert with happy birthday written in chocolate.
The food was excellent from starter to desert & the service was attentive but not intrusive.
Overall a great experience & I recommend booking.

Food was excellent as ever and we were lucky enough to get a table overlooking the river. Unfortunately the service was appalling. We would have died of thirst if I hadn’t liberated the wine from it’s bucket at the back of the restaurant and we waited 45 minutes for our coffee to be delivered, and would have been waiting still if I hadn’t lost my temper. I have been coming here for years but I won’t be rushing back....

Amazing food, service a little slow but that's to be expected on a Saturday evening. Waiter was very attentive and chatty. Would reccomend the lamb tomahawks!

Unfortunately our evening was over shadowed by the table behind us who clearly had no awareness of their surroundings or any other people in the restaurant deciding shouting and screaming over each other was normal at 8 p.m on a Wednesday..... If the desired effect was everybody's evening was all about them that was the case just in a negative way ....
Shame as the food was great as ever.

Waitor was non existent. Seamed very short staffed. Sat without drinks for a lot of our meal. Got the filet, medium rare and it was burnt. Just bad flavor all around for the price. Mushrooms were the highlight of the dinner.

One of our party did not get their first main choice. The rib-eye steak was juicy and flavoursome but very salty. Over priced White wines and impatient table service. Overall we felt it was quite pricey for the overall experience we had received. Great view of tower bridge
