Every bite of food was better than the last. We had the croquettes, mozzarella, confit potatoes, kale salad, turbot, and sirloin. The service was tremendous, with lots of informed attention. We highly recommend trying this place if you are in the area.

Service was super friendly and our waiter was very knowledgeable. Food was amazing, some of the best I’ve had in London to be honest. Would recommend it to everyone!

The food was actually quite good, but it wasn't amazing either. While the location was also a little far out. Would not mind going again but not on purpose.

Fantastic food, lovely atmosphere, staff were friendly and easy to flag down but not too pushy. It's an expensive meal but more than worth it for the quality of food and cooking skill on show.

We arrived 15 minutes early and were slightly dismayed that our table was not ready, and as there is nowhere to sit and wait were sent across to the pub opposite - surely the noisiest place on earth! However, we much appreciated the maitre d coming over to tell us we could be seated, after just a few minutes... Nice meal with plenty of options. Our friends went for turbot and were delighted, my wife for middle white. In retrospect, I was surprised that I was not asked how I wanted my Barnsley chop - I would have preferred it pinker.
Charming waiting staff.

A real little crackerjack. Beautiful historic interior. Dishes were interesting and full of flavour. Great presentation too in vintage crockery. Friendly & efficient staff. More than fair pricing. Some might find the choices limiting, but when the quality is this great it really doesn't matter.

Simple food, done very well. I had the Tamworth chop, my colleague the middle-white. Both were tender and moist, but at £36 the chop did not have a lot of meat, even though it was billed as the larger 450g cut. The real star of the show were the confit potatoes, gloriously crisp and delicious on the outside, soft and moist on the inside. Truly lovely. Service was frankly a little underwhelming. The restaurant was less than half-full but it took 15 minutes for someone to even offer a drink, even though we could see 3 or 4 service staff.

Food was great and tasty, but I still felt slight,y disappointed by our meal.
Asking what soft drinks they had seemed to confuse (I’m pregnant) so I ended up with fizzy water rather than the ‘standard’ coke or lemonade option offered.
Chops were delicious but lacking veg side dishes on the menu and wasn’t inspired by desert either.
Great if you just want a chunk of chop, but i won’t rush back.

An institution that keeps its standards high through time. Te crab starter with a wild garlic aioli was fantastic. If you are after beef for your main, you have a tough choice between the mince with dripping toast or the onglet. Ideally there are at least 2 of you so order each and share. Fabulous wine list with some real treats on it. The service is engaging, never overbearing, knowledgeable and, equally importantly, fun. Do go there.

Four of us had a midweek lunch here from the set menu which we all very much enjoyed. The atmosphere is relaxed and we received excellent service. Between us to start we had crab on toast and rabbit terrine. For the main course we tried Galloway mince (a rich minced beef dish) and middle white pork chop. The dishes are not complex but full of flavour from the quality ingredients.

Clipstone ands Portland are already favorites.......and after the QCH reopened by the same guys and gals i thought, time for a revisit. I was a regular in the day, as it was really one of the only few proper gastro pubs nearby , in the days of The Face and Arena ( head offices around the corner )...
The terrine with the fois gras ...exceptional, my Tamworth Chop and confit Roast potatoes...dish of the day ....staff really cool and informative. Touch pricey , particularly the wine.....but great great great !!!!

Confit potatoes are inspired. Muscle bisque also well worth the punt (for a chop based restaurant). Serving staff a little over efficient - whisking dishes away I was still working on!

The food here was superb -- definitely one of the best Sunday roasts in London. All of the ingredients are a very high quality and the standard is quite high which you can tell. The food is a bit pricey -- that would be the only negative.

Wanted to come for the last few years, my partner is a butcher and heard about QCH from the Internet in regards to beef dropping.
Came for lunch, the onglet was absolutely spectacular.
Lovely wine, attentive staff.
Would happily return to try an evening service.

As always this place is a delight. Beautifully cooked beef, simple fresh veg and some mouthwatering starters - we particularly liked the battered salt and pepper rabbit and the scallop 'snack'. We were also delighted by the wine recommendation of the Shenandoah Zinfandel which was delicious with our meal.

Some slightly snarky comments from other diners and those in the wine bar because we chose to enter as usual via the wine bar door and the curtain doesn't make it easy to get in - clusters of guests there should be asked to make way for others coming in or a notice might be helpful asking people to only enter via the other door. Can see why the curtain is necessary though in the winter ! Equally if eating in the wine bar I'd suggest you ask to be sat away from the door as you will get knocked by ppl coming in.

Very disappointing meal which held high hopes. The seats, which I appreciate, are listed but very uncomfortable. The starter was a very yellow poached egg but the wild garlic leaves had wilted, the radicchio leaves were slightly brown on the edges. Not a great start. The onglet steak was perfectly cooked and much enjoyed. However, we all felt underwhelmed by our visit.

The service was amazing, really friendly staff. The food was excellent, especially the steak (ribeye on the bone 700g) it was melting like butter. The confit potatoes were delicious, crispy and cooked to perfection. The foie gras toast even though it was small it was super tasty. The black truffle oil mozzarella snack was mouth watering.
100% recommended.

The staff are incredibly knowledgable about the provenance of the food and the food itself - and that extends to gluten awareness and options for coeliacs.

(They're also brilliantly personable, and the food superb)

High quality food- poor quality service and ambience!
Go there to taste some sensational meat, but be aware that the room with small tables is tatty and service a bit hit and miss.
High point- mince on dripping toast!
Low point- watching waiters in a small service area blowing noses, tidying hair etc

The quality of food, wine , and service is always very high at the Quality Chop House. Very strongly recommended. The pairing of lamb with a 2011 Rioja was especially delicious. Staff were professional and friendly.

The Quality Chop House is hands down one of my favourite places to eat in London. Everything I've ever eaten there on previous visits has been delicious and this time was no exception. I've recently stopped eating meat so I was intrigued to see what my options would be on the lunch menu this time (I've always ordered meat in the past) and was delighted that the brill I ordered was completely amazing. The set lunch menu is always great value too. Will be back (many many times.)
