The service is a bit too slow for a quick lunch; We got the set menu but we were charged a la carte- luckily my lunch partner noticed

I like the restaurants that are tucked away in Leadenhall Market. There is an air of "secrecy" about them! We chose the set menu which, to be fair, was a tad limited as they tend to be but the food served up was delicious. The addition of a free Prosecco delivered to our table in those delightful 1950's champagne coupes as opposed to modern day flutes enhanced our dining experience. Chamberlain's still has a touch of the "old world" about it which, for me, makes it an ideal choice for a celebration or anniversary. The head waiter was charm itself and popped over to top up our wine glasses at appropriate intervals. Would perhaps choose a la carte for another visit. A very enjoyable evening from start to finish.

The food was good, sea bass was well cooked and sauce was very nice, but nothing out of the ordinary. Nice place in the City, very cool location, perfect for lunch but might feel a bit empty for dinner.

We had the set lunch menu. The selection of dishes on offer was fine; the quality of food was very good. Would particularly recommend the fish in tempura batter.
I would say good value considering the location and overall ambience.

We went for the offer and had a great meal. Loved the starter particularly, a creamy lobster soup (can't recall the dish's proper name!). Nice touch having an amuse bouche.

Simply outstanding lunch. The set menu offers fantastic value and genuinely tasty food. Throw in unexpected amuse bouche and petit fours and this was quite memorable. Attentive yet unobtrusive service to boot.

We went there for Valentine's night.
I had thought they were fully booked for the night because in the week before we went the restaurant called me, texted me and emailed me to check that we were still coming, but it was virtually empty. It felt a little intrusive as to my mind if I book and give contact details then that should be enough, and I shouldn't be disturbed at work with phone calls.

We did have a good evening and enjoyed the meal but it felt a little old fashioned, stuffy and over- priced. The staff were very nice and professional but at times seemed a little awkward and overattentive possibly because it was so quiet so there was a little too much hovering. It felt like a place trying a bit too hard in a city full of innovative food experiences and relaxed dining.

If you are going to pay that much for a special night it needs to feel special and to me it didn't. I am trying to think whether it was just not to my taste and possibly it might suit an older crowd used to more traditional dining who want a quiet place for a chat.

Wow ... what t a treat! Perfect Sunday brunch, the bloody Marys were so good, an excellent creamy prossecco. The lobster omelette did generate food envy around the table - stunning, although the Crab risotto was so flavoursome and comforting, a joy. We all ordered fish and chips, crispy batter and beautifully fresh fish. the best tarter sauce. The highlight was the excellent welcome and attentive service from Stefan, we felt thoroughly spoiled. A lovely experience, cant wait to return!

I booked a table at Chamberlain's to celebrate my husband's 70th Birthday. The staff were very attentive and when we arrived there as a birthday card on the table. I had pre-ordered a bottle of champagne which took a while to arrive at the table. The food was not as special as I had hoped and very pricey for what we had. I chose a wine for the table, only to be talked into choosing one over £20 per bottle more. Quite embarrassing as it was a very special occasion. It was in a lovely setting although lacked atmosphere as we were the only table occupied in the downstairs restaurant. So overall it did not live up to my high expectations and I was somewhat disappointed. Sorry!

Quiet, spacious and atmospheric - a wonderful ambience enhanced by a friendly, attentive and efficient staff. Seafood that tastes as if it really is freshly procured at the market on a daily basis. I will be going back when I find an excuse to do so

Business lunch shortly after the restaurant reopened and we were treated to a glass of bubbly to celebrate. Both of us had the skate wing which was perfectly cooked and with delicious accompaniments. Service was attentive but I have marked them down slightly only because one of the side dishes was incorrect. This was, however, rectified very quickly and we were not charged.
Very nice meal from a favorite lunch time venue in the city and I will certainly be back.

Impressive restaurant in the beautifully restored Leadenhall Market. Fish is the thing to go for here and there is a good variety available. There is a reasonable wine list and the complimentary bottle that came with our offer was of a good quality.
