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.

Good food & bottomless Prosecco really was bottomless! I don’t think my glass ever got to the half full point - was constantly being topped up! We had a few cocktails at the bar afterwards which were also lovely.

One of the few steak houses in London where I order a rare steak and I get a rare steak ! In my experience elsewhere if I order it rare then I get it medium. Well done !

We come for the bottomless brunch every summer since you started it, but this time was the worst experience by far. The waiters were not attentive, we had to constantly ask for our glasses to be filled, we ordered a lobster roll that came as a burger because the waiter failed to mention that you were out of rolls. On this occasion we were truly disappointed and we may not come next summer.

Appalling from the moment we arrived. Table booked not available “we’ve given your table away”

Business breakfast for 3 at 8am.
Restaurant 40% occupied. You’d think they could serve breakfast? Think again.

Water offered not delivered to table.
Staff looking harassed and running around.
Food was adequate. Salmon and eggs. Specifically asked for properly toasted toast; of course warm bread arrives. (1 slice) Asked for wet eggs; of course dry scramble arrived.
Salmon nice but portion tiny.
Then asked for quick order of same for a additional colleague and this didn’t show up l, at all.
Lots of yelling and running around at the pass in the kitchen area (we were close and could see the chaos)

Complained and lots of apologies but required refund. That was messed up with us being charged twice. Endeavoring to sort that out now.

** addendum; refund received promptly. F&B Manager Matteo, stepped in and resolved the situation, Very professional, helpful and took care and critically, said sorry and asked us to come back, which we will. Good manager with the right approach to situation. Thank you Matteo.

Portions small and didn't equate to the final bill, not good value for money. The chicken was dry and the steak cold, misrepresentation with the triple cooked chips. Overall we whole party were not impressed and won't be returning.

For the Evening Standard deal yes but would not recommend for a special event and some dishes were definitely better than others. Bizarre conversation with waitress about a dessert where we were assured it contained dark chocolate when it clearly was white chocolate.

Food was great and good value. Had the evening standard offer. It was a bit too noisy because of the bar with the music loud. For a friends catch up would’ve preferred a light background music so that we could hear and not shout.

Its rather amazing to watch this restaurant come to life over a lunch period during the week. But it never gets uncomfortably loud, just buzzy, in a good way. The menu is very diverse, from things you might expect on a dinner menu (lobster) to a hearty lunch time offer (serious burgers) to something light, yet still filling (great selection of salads). Add to that an always impressive wine list and its a great place to do business over lunch or impress a friend/colleague/client. I've been for dinner before and can now add this is a lunch time go to restaurant as well.

And while it did get busy, the service never suffered. Food was quick to be ordered and quick to be served but never felt rushed.

Love this place but we waited a long time to have our order taken, then a while for it to arrive. It was a Tuesday lunchtime so not the busiest day of the week. It just seemed like there were not enough staff for the number of tables. We ended up spending less than £20 each which is great for us but from a business pint of view that took 1:30 minutes. Good business?

Nice meal, nothing too special but horribly slow for a business lunch. We chased our food having waited at least 20 minutes after ordering and it arrived ten minutes later. I think they forgot our order. Two courses and coffee took 1 hour 40 minutes which is too long for a business lunch and I had to leave my guest at the table drinking coffee. Let's hope this was a one 0ff. my only warning is that this is as noisy as a restaurant gets when full.
