Staff really amateur
Asked what we wanted to drink before we’d sat down
Mains arrived whilst still eating starter
Plate taken away before one of us had finished!!!
Wine glass really dirty
Shame as burger wasn’t bad & sourdough bread starter lovely
I got two tinny fish cakes with a bit of green salad on the side, that’s for £19. I had to ask twice if that was a starter or main course. Even by London standards that’s a rip off!
Bottomless brunch with free flowing Prosecco. Great afternoon. With brilliant service. Food was excellent too. Thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon. Waitresses were very attentive. Didn’t have an empty glass once.
I have been here once before and loved it so I went again. I was disappointed that only an hour after opening for dinner they were already out of ribeye but the filet was also very good. The Apple rhubarb crumble was absolutely delicious as well. I’ll be back again!
Lovely evening with a great friend. Had the Evening Standard menu. The Flat Iron steak was delicious - soup a little boring! Enjoyed it with a delicious Malbec. Very good, attentive but not intrusive, waiter.
I thought the restaurant's decor and atmosphere was really lovely. The table was a good size for the party of 5 we had. The menu had some lovely options, however I felt that the size of the dishes we ordered varied greatly, although this wasn't reflected in the price. For example, the chicken pie was quite small at £18, and the pork dish was enormous and only a couple of pounds more expensive. I also thought the service was quite slow, especially considering we arrived quite early at 12.15pm.
Overall, it's a convenient option for a business lunch.
Service has just massively gone down hill. They seem to completely fail to log attendance (about 5 x in a row now)
I’m a frequent attender because of work breakfasts but now get a no show email nearly every time i go
If it continues will just find a new place to go.
Been a few times and the food has always been very good but it was really disappointing this time.
Way overpriced for a small plate salad and 2 glases of wine
Very disappointing- when booking I opted for the deal menu - which wasn't offered to us.
The food was fine, nothing special. Long wait between courses, and waiter made a mistake with the order. No rush to go back.
Nice place for lunch reasonable food and nice atmosphere.
Very noisy: loud music coming from the bar + other music in the restaurant
Very poor service and food to match.
A quiet unexpected meal out after Christmas. I’ve been
here many times and the food is always delicious !
The steak perfect and the vegetables too
Great service, great steaks, lively bar ... very good Good indeed for a restaurant associated with a hotel. Worth going even if you don’t stay at the hotel.
All round good place to eat, wholesome and hearty.
Breakfast with friends on a damp rainy day - we were welcomed and made to feel at easy - the baby in our group was well looked after and offered a highchair. Very patient and helpful. Food great, ambiance great. Thank you will be visiting again. Francesca
Friendly and efficient service that catered to our special requests as well.
A regular favourite, for good reason! Great food and wonderful atmosphere and service...
Food was luke warm (albeit tasty), and waiters screwed up giving the right food to the right people...
I’m very picky with my steak but the ribeye with shallot and marrow sauce was the BEST steak I’ve ever had. Cooked perfectly med/rare yet still hot, very tender and perfect taste. Desserts were delicious too. Would definitely go back.
We went for Sunday lunch and really enjoyed both roast chicken and roast beef. The portions are well sized and come with all of the trimmings you'd expect (although the yorkshire puddings didn't arrive until more than halfway through the main course). It's a very relaxing atmosphere so great for a Sunday lunch.
Excellent food. Great service and good wine
Lovely food, but the service wasn’t great. Slow and they didn’t know what half of the menu was or if they even had it
We had a fabulous time. Food was excellent. Service was spot on. The staff were very accommodating, polite and friendly. Thank you for a wonderful brunch!
Good place with nice ambience and good for a business lunch. Busy but not cramped. After being asked a few times if were ready to order suddenly there was noone available when we were, had to wait 10 mins to get someone's attention. Food took 30 minutes to arrive. I get that it's busy but for business lunches I think it should arrive more quickly. Food was great but I only got to eat 50% of mine before I had to leave for a meeting.
High prices, small portions, loud music, what's not to love?
Why use the name "chop house" when there is nothing resembling a chop on the menu? (a fish "chop" doesn't count).
My starter of bone marrow consisted of a shin bone with a tiny smear of marrow remaining. I can only assume that the restaurant is championing the use of cows that have survived leukaemia.
The wine list is highly restricted, with few wines available by the glass.
This place is best understood as a hangout for Shoreditch hipsters: anybody with an interest in food should avoid it.
Great staff, good portions and nice food. Lovely ambiance and music not too loud so you can chat.
The bottomless brunch at the Chop House never fails to please however I was disappointed to see that the bottomless option has been changed. I preferred it when there was a choice of red, white and rose wine, sometimes with a fizz option. The food and service was great as usual.
Food was below average but service was absolutely exceptional! Staff went out of their way to ensure we had a lovely time and I can’t thank them enough :-)
Merci beaucoup à Camélia la serveuse Française qui nous a été de très bon conseils. Resto sympa.
My sense is they can be chronically understaffed depending on the day
Still it’s very close to the office and usually quick so we keep coming....
Brought my partner here for his birthday and enjoyed it very much. The squid was lovely but possibly had maybe abit too much for a starter . Which is good if you have a huge appetite.
The fillet steak was cooked to perfection, my partner even said the steak was up there with some of the best he's eaten!
Pudding, the sticky toffee pudding didn't last 5 mins! Went down very well, overall would definitely recommend this place to anyone, would be nice to extend the menu in some ways, and add some popular starters such as garlic bread and halloumi ect, but other than that, thankyou for your amazing service, very quick and speedy.
I will keep this short but basically: very welcoming and attentive staff, great selection of wine (as recommended by the bar staff) as well as other drinks, great starters and excellent steak. We opted for two of their special cuts and were thoroughly impressed, they were cooked to perfection and tasted Devine!! I will definitely be going back before Christmas.
this is actually for breakfast on 6th November but not yet come through- have breakfast here about 3x a week and generally very good. Service was poor today- forgot orders/ late order and general confusion.
Not ideal for a work meeting!
Quit overpriced, visited on a Sunday night. Cocktails in the bar were very well made. Ordered the same round in the chophouse. Old fashioned was great however the signature cocktail was completely different to that of the bar. Different garnish, different taste etc. Needs to looked at, no consistency. Service in the Chophouse good hostess pleasant, waitress was the best part. Didn’t catch her name but Italian I believe. Very informative with specials, allergy information, appeared to be the only staff member guest orientated. All the staff in the bar were too busy talking to the chefs. It was very quiet in the restaurant being the financial area so little to no ambience. However something to watch, noise level from the soul event in the bar over poured the music in the restaurant. Way overpowering if you are looking for a quiet meal. Food quality was ok. Bread was great, burrata was very average. Burgers were not good at all no flavour, no seasoning. The London burger scene is very competitive and I believe they need to justify the prices. Chips were very cold. Not sure what the pickle brought to the dish? Ice cream and Sorbet, decent flavours. Price is never an issue and I was aware of what the price was however I cannot justify those prices for that food. I didn’t mention any of these issues to the waitress as it is not her issue but the management. Would I return, no merely down the above. South place has a lot of competition in the area and will need to watch these issues if they want to remain competitive. Thanks
We had to request drinks after 15 minutes of arriving. No one brought us the menu. When we did order and the food arrived I had to look around for a waiter as I had a butter knife to cut my roast beef. Service was shocking and when the bill arrived I refused to pay the £20 service charge plus the extra bottle of water they added to my bill which was never ordered.
The lady in charged was very apologetic and sympathetic and requested I make a complaint to the management team as she was left with trainees on a busy sunday.
We went as a family to South Place for my granddaughters 16th birthday brunch and to say goodbye to me as I was leaving to go to India the next day.
A very disappointing celebrations.
Great value bottomless brunch experience!
very bloody partridge
