I booked a table at The Quality Chop House for my partner’s Birthday. We arrive and guided to our table with a card on the table wishing him a happy birthday signed by the staff! Very nice gesture! He loved it!
Besides that I booked this restaurant because my partner loves meat! Outstanding quality and good service :)

elements that are amazing - the liver parfait was one of the best things i have eaten this year. The lamb croquette was beautiful. The roasts were fine, initially my pork serving was very meagre, tho it was delicious. They brought me out more when i complained, though it was a bit less toothsome than the initial piece. Roast potatoes were lacklustre, carrots and corn delicious. Staff are lovely.

Quite frankly one of the capital's finest dining experiences!Superb cooking that is neither showy or gimmick led,but instead highly intelligent and down right delicious with the restaurant obtaining some of the best produce the UK can offer.Last year I went four times in November and will probably hit this venue regularly for the remainder of this year too,beyond recommended!

We enjoyed the lunch set menu which is good value. Good food, excellent service and an interesting dining space. Unfortunately we made a 2pm Saturday lunch booking and so by 2:30 we were the only ones left in the restaurant. But book earlier for lunch or for an evening meal and enjoy good quality ingredients, well-cooked in a interesting dining room.

Does the QCH need more praise? I doubt it. A quick google will reveal that established reviewers are in complete consensus that this is one of the most reliable, consistently brilliant restaurants in the country. #protip: book in the wine bar section for slightly more comfortable seating. #protip 2: come during grouse season for a (not cheap but) extraordinary lunch. #protip 3: never miss the confit potatoes.

Food is always great here (have been at least five times). Be sure and order a side if you are hungry as the mains are just meat or fish with no starch or veg or bread. Service recently has not been very good --- superior air from waiter and once we asked for the check it took ages to get him to bring the machine. Casual atmosphere mostly good but a bit on the noisy side.

Perhaps not the spot for lunch on one of the hottest days of the year given the small dining room and lack of a/c (although this was available in the adjoining room). Putting that on one side, we were still left with the impression of an established restaurant treading water. The food was ok but not great as was the service. It all felt a bit tired and worn out. Perhaps the sun had got to all of us. Will try again in the Autumn...

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.

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.
