Really good evening out at QCH. The chops were melt in the mouth, the confit potatoes were delicious. Oh and get the Chamomile Margarita - it was delicious, so was the chocolate dessert. Cannot fault anything here. A really lovely evening out with excellent service from a t top 100 restaurant.

Very very good chops, amazing potatoes, excellent wine list. Bread very good. Service professional and timely but a little lacking in warm welcome. Cooking was done very well on all dishes. Prices quite high.

The service was a bit lacking but the starters were excellent : a nice chicken terrine and a very light and tasty crab with peas and grated goat cheese. My steak was well cooked but The Dover sole was less than stellar being very boney. The bartender was very attentive and produced some nice gin martinis .

The service was friendly and efficient and the food was well cooked and presented. If you like brasserie style dining this establishment comes up to expectations. However, the range of dishes is quite limited and if you are not a fan of fat rich meat you might be disappointed. Perhaps I have lost track of London dining costs but I found prices to be on the high side for the overall dining experience.

Excellent to see many of the more esoteric cuts and breeds of meat on the menu together with a very good wine list. Prices certainly fully reflect the quality of the ingredients and cooking and not many bargains on the wine list either.

The old benches are now padded and not uncomfortable! Lovely short menu with really interesting dishes such as pork with anchovies and plaice with preserved lemon. Choc dessert to die for. Well priced white and red from Portugal, both great on a hot day. Very nice staff too.

Totally overpriced. A pork chop on its own for £32 and it was tasteless and had sinews.

Completely underwhelmed with the entire experience

Fun space, great service, really delicious food, fun wine list. Good cocktails as well! Really enjoyed the environment and settled in to a really good meal.

Only nits - the chairs for the smaller tables are not super comfortable. And a bit of a delay between the appetizers and the mains. But these are minor issues, really.

Absolutely recommended.

Absolutely exquisite food in unique surroundings with impeccable service. Very helpful and accommodating for gluten free - it’s so nice to go somewhere with a concise, seasonal menu and be told you there are only one or two things you can’t have, instead of the other way around! The set lunch menu is excellent value, although to get the promoted prices you have to have iron willpower, as all the snacks and sides sound to die-for. Already looking forward to coming back

Just a total rip off. Served cava for champagne (had ordered a bottle) then when called on it we got the bottle we ordered. It went in a communal ice bucket and suspect, not certain, some poured from ours to others. Wife ordered the "dover sole". It was definitely monk fish. No question about it. Check came and when my wife called the manager on it he argued with that it was sole. First, it was not. Second, what sort of restaurant would argue a point like that? Even if customer wrong, for the sake to good will take it off the bill. No way for these guys. It is actually the first time in 50 years that I felt a restaurant was picking my pocket intentionally. Yes, I've been charged by big plate small food joints. Or had horrible service that was irritating. Paid more than reasonable. But never, ever felt a restaurant intentionally mislead and coupled that with inept service and very average food.

We came here pre-Sadlers Wells so didn’t have a long time which I regret as it was worth lingering. The staff were warm, welcoming and gave very good service. The food was delicious. The portions were a good size and nicely presented. The flavours were good with some interesting combinations and good attention to contrast of textures so a delight. I think pricing of meal was good given quality of ingredients and cooking.

Came here for a celebration meal and it was absolutely great. The menu is small but with enough options to suit moderate budgets as well as blow outs (with someone else paying I went for the latter!). We went for chops which were quite expensive but you are paying for the quality – plus when we asked the waiter for a wine recommendation he suggested a match that was only £5 a glass which was a nice surprise. The sides were also a highlight!

The food was fabulous - really tasty, fresh and inventive (but in a nice simple way). The wine was also great and an interesting selection to choose from. Our only reservations were that the prices felt quite steep, particularly given the size of portion (which was small - we shared a starter and had a main each and needed a snack later in the evening); and the service was a bit funny - not particularly friendly or attentive, ever so slightly haughty. We would go again - the food really was excellent - but we would probably save it for a special occasion when we wanted to slash out and eat 3 courses

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.

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.
