    I have been coming to the QCH for years - even before it was discovered! I think the biggest problem you have is the acoustics - we enjoyed a long lunch on Thursday and the most enjoyable bit was after 14:30 when the restaurant was emptying and we, the stragglers, could enjoy our conversation. Otherwise the staff were excellent the food was great, the wine list is a bit toppy but very interesting — perhaps you might expand your selection of wines by the glass? Thanks

    Rectified by the manager but disappointing. I’ve been for a roast a few times and always recommend it to others. On this occasion, if wasn’t good. Average starters (used to love the steak tartar; quiche felt like a downgrade); gravy very salty. We didn’t eat the desserts as neither the sticky toffee pudding or the lemon meringue choux were good (dry and flavourless). Unfortunately, no one checked back on us so it wasn’t rectified during the meal. The manager was gracious and resolved at the end of our dinner. Disappointed as I was so looking forward to this and treating my boyfriend as his first time. Wishing the team all the best in resolving the issues though as genuinely, it used to be my favourite roast in London.

    Great service and I think the best Sunday roast I’ve ever had! We opted for three courses and shared the lamb main. I loved everything but those confit potatoes were an unexpected delight.

    The food - especially the croquettes, sweetbread and steak - was great but we were let down by service and ambience in the second room tonight. It took 25mins for our order to be taken (and asking 3 staff), and our wine was only topped up once through the evening. Real shame as previous experiences were superb.

    Perfect meal today, lovely host/som. Meat portions are huge so can easily be shared between two or more with some sides. The meat was tender and cooked to perfection, even the goat chop.

    Lots of great things to say here. The sweetbreads were delicious and the saddleback collar steak was sublime. The crab raviolo did have a little shell in it but tasted really good. The turbot was undercooked but the team did everything to make up for it and it wasn’t inconvenient. The wines and cocktails were solid and the service was outstanding. A few small tweaks and this meal would have been top tier.

    The 3 course set lunch was good value but the schnitzel Holstein was just that: it didn't come with vegetables. The only vegetable option from the main menu was cabbage which was undercooked & disappointing. Would have preferred a selection of veg to accompany the meat. Service was great however & made up for the hard, church pew seats!

Waiters very friendly and with a good knowledges of the fishes served. I even got a card and a cook book as a present. Overall experience was very good. You feel the history of the place inside, dishes were simple, not pretentious but well cooked, very buttery. Strongly suggest this place and definitely will get back. F

    Great venue but the shared sirloin was average at best to be honest, which just made the whole meal a lot more expensive than it should have been when compared to other steak restaurants. The lamb was loved however so just a bit of a mixed bag for the expense.
