    Lovely fresh food and wine. The service was very smiley and nice. We went on a Friday so it was a bit busy so the service was a bit slower than expected. I have been before and had better experience last time. I feel like this time the starters may have been smaller so it felt like it was not good value. They removed a lovely cava they had from the menu which was also disappointing.

    Best meal in London! The shrimp crumpet, sirloin steak and confit potatoes are a must. Service is impeccable. 3 servers on each table. We did not have dessert, but the treat they brought at the end was amazing. Wished we had ordered dessert.

    Firstly, I have to say I wasn’t enamoured with the service. A lovely young woman showed us to our table which wasn’t ready yet- we were asked to wait in a corner. While waiting, another woman sat another party at the table. When asked whether she’d be showing us where we were sitting, she immediately threw her colleague under the bus and said it was her mistake “you’re next door” 🙄 We were then bid farewell by an overzealous waiter who thought we’d eaten and told to sit outside for a while to wait for our table. Once sat at a table- the design of the place is old school workman’s club, the chairs are uncomfortable high back wooden pew type benches so if you go, request the tables with chairs. We ordered the pork croutons, black pudding, Terrine, brown crab rarebit, lamb shoulder and saddle back loin and shoulder and the whole thing is served with Roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, Roast courgette, mint Buttered carrots and cabbage. The meats were particularly salty and I wasn’t in love with the potatoes. The rest of the veg was nice. The Sunday roast is £39 for three courses, 2 courses were £35. Our bill came to £200 and I can honestly say I don’t actually think it was worth it. Recommend: croquets (although we suspected because we were three sharing they gave us 3, while another table seemed to get 4) 👀

    Have dined here several times and never been disappointed. The lunch set menu is tremendous value with 3 courses for £25. An authentic London eatery with excellent service. Totally professional and at the same time extremely welcoming and friendly. The quality of the food is top notch. Crab rarebit followed by a lovely pork steak with amazing confit potatoes and an ice cream sandwich to finish. The wine is not cheap but an interesting selection. An hour and a half we’ll spent.

    All the dishes we tried on the relatively short menu were great - especially the Turbot stake and amazing confit potatoes. Great service. Some seats are benches, some may find them uncomfortable after a while, but it all part of this restaurants charm.

    Beautiful food, especially the starters. We all had the pork chop which for all of us was overly fatty. I know Mangalitza pork is very marbled hence the flavour (which was excellent), but i can't eat 60% fat. Each chop was £40 with no sides. Wine list very lumpy but we got a good bottle of Portuguese red for under £40. Great service and ambience. Uncomfortable bench seats but I guess this is part of the charm and history of this place. Overall great food but mains seemed overly expensive.

    The service and attentiveness from staff was superb. Food would have been 5 star but disappointed with lack of flavour in the terrine. The wonderful selection of vegetables let down by mediocre roast potatoes. Beef was tender, tasty and perfectly cooked.

    Beef sirloin priced at an additional £15 per head was not worth it …. £100 for two people seemed overpriced to me. The potato confit and roast potatoes were a great disappointment. £130 plus for two people (one glass of red wine per person) for two courses … I think your competitors can do a better job. Service was fine.

    If you don't mind cripplingly uncomfortable benches and braying City types banging around next to you on them, this could be the place for you. The food is amazing. So was the bill, and not in a good way. You'll get a big pork chop and it will be beautifully cooked. But at £38 it should be. Huge wine list but next to nothing under £30. Maybe I just can't afford to eat out in London any more. Shame as it was my birthday but I was left deflated. Used to love this place. Farewell QCH. It was nice knowing you.

    The food was good. Imaginative, fresh, well thought out. The value for money less so. Compared with broadly similar restaurants I visited in the last weeks - St John B&W and Lyle’s - the portions at Quality CHophouse were surprisingly meagre for the price. Waiting staff did a good job.
