As the name of South Place Hotel’s ground floor restaurant might suggest, South Place Chop House takes inspiration from London’s traditional chop houses – marrying good food with engaging service and a great atmosphere. The venue has been given a makeover, with stacks of classic copper pans, artwork by Thorbjørn Andersen and a choice of intimate banquette seating as well as larger, communal tables.

At the weekend, this ground floor space becomes a social spot with bottomless brunches on Saturday & Sunday with free-flowing bubbles on option. Sunday also offers succulent Roast Specials.

The cooking is skilled and gutsy. A refinement of the conventional 18th Century Chop House style, it’s perfect for contemporary tastes and sensibilities, food you return to: tasty, satisfying and wholesome.

Private Dining

South Place Hotel boasts five private dining rooms on the first floor, which have been designed to facilitate daytime meetings, too. The rooms take their names from spies and secret agents in The Avengers, The New Avengers and The Men from U.N.C.L.E.

Nice food, but the roast was a little cold. And the cauliflower cheese was slightly bland. Otherwise a nice Sunday lunch. And the roof was closed which was a shame as it was a nice day.

The Chop House is a good spot for a business lunch or dinner. The noise levels are not too elevated but equally the buzz allows conversation without feeling too overheard. The staff are attentive and the menu has a good selection for most diet biases. There is nothing particularly outstanding on the menu, which tends to the plain, but equally the plain food they have is done to a decent quality level. The Superfood salad needs a little more pizazz but the josper grill and grilled fish dishes are very solid as are the steaks. Not spectacular but certainly reliably safe.

Had a fantastic bottomless brunch at South Place Chop House with 4 friends for my birthday. The food was absolutely gorgeous - the best eggs benedict I'd ever had - and that steak... oh my!!!
The room did become quite loud towards the end of our brunch with lots of big tables on the bottomless prosecco - but probably to be expected! Would definitely go back again and would absolutely recommend!

My favorite city lunch or brunch. This visit was particularity good, exceptional service from Camille, extra gravy, extra horse raddish. My no meat eating friends had the roast with Cauliflower cheese instead of nut roast they were both very happy! I have the most tasty rare beef... yum

I’d recommend purely on the basis of the staff being super friendly and the drinks top ups were insane, somif you’re out to have fun and don’t care about food then this is the place for you. The amount you pay and the size of the dishes you receive don’t correlate, my friends and I were quite disappointed after reading rave reviews.

This is a great restaurant choice in the City with excellent food and service. I took a member of my team for lunch yesterday to celebrate her retirement and again we had a great experience. The staff are attentive and super friendly. I have found that the quality of the ingredients is excellent and the menu has a good selection of options without being overcomplicated. The Chop House for me is always a safe go-to option when I want to be guaranteed of service with a smile and great food. Thomas and his team always ensures that their guests are well looked after. I highly recommend a visit.

Great value at the bottomless brunch, waiting start are very Friendly, helpful and keep those flutes topped up!
Only downside was the bar experience, we arrived 20 mins early for our table so was shown through to the bar area. We placed orders for 3 martini and it took 20 minutes for them to be made and delivered to us. The bar wasn’t that busy, how long would you wait during a busy period

We Have recently been in the chop house for dinner. The all experience was amazing from the welcoming to end. The service was really attentive and all the staff it's been great with us. The food was also very good we took the large cut of porter house plus few starters and desserts. All of them was absolutely delicious as the cocktail that we had during the night. Highly recommended

Really nice place with a modern design, closely located to the Liverpool Street Station. Simple menu where everyone can find something suitable. The food itself was amazing! If you like fish, give cured sea bass a try! Also, you won’t regret their fillet steak. Our servers for that evening, Slavena and Camelia, made sure that the whole experience was excellent. Will definitely be back.

Boozy brunch - The restaurant is fantastic. Great settings, cool people and location. In terms of food, I may have ordered not quite to my taste, therefore most of the meal was left on the plate. Our waitress Bianca noticed a lot of food remaining when clearing the table & swiftly rectified our dining without asking. This in my eyes was the very best in terms of service. I shall definitely be returning as I’m sure my next experience will be great.

Having eaten before at South Place Chop House, I had reasonably high expectations and had no hesitation in booking the restaurant to entertain a client. My mackerel starter was the smallest fillet that I have ever eaten with the accompanying heritage beetroot, potato and horseradish severely lacking in flavour. My clients single crab cake was evidently OK but at £12.00 she expected something better than OK. My main course of cod was fine although my clients lamb hotpot was dreadful - dry and seemingly baked onto the side of the dish as if it had been left under the salamander for a long period. It was topped by a disc of what we assumed was potato although it proved impossible to break without bits flying off - like a very tough poppadom. The cost of this dish was removed from the bill when we complained although the damage had been done - it is highly unlikely that my client and I will return.

The food arrived lukewarm at best, by the time we were half way through it was cold. I didn't expect a £14 Full English to be so disappointing, especially from a supposedly good restaurant. This was the second time in two weeks, with the same problem.
The Chop House was recommended so it's even more of a shame.
To top the morning off, we were hurried out due to the staff wanting to prepare for the lunchtime shift. The bill was brought over whilst we were still eating. Extremely poor to be honest.
