                                      Excellent for Sunday Roast. This is always a must for every trip I make to London from the States.

                                      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.

                                      It would not be hyperbole to say this is a strong contender for the best restaurant in London. It’s certainly in the top three. Not sure I can fault anything at all, oh and the chef is a bloody genius.

                                      From start to finşsh 1/10. We called two days ahead as well as on the reservation notes to make sure our table was on a dinning table rather than wooded box seatings and It wasn't, there was bunch of elder people in our group and they were very uncomfortable. Service was almost there wasn't anyone working. When It comes to food, appetizers and sides very really tasty however all steaks were really chewy. They were all cooked to our expectations however they were very rough and super hard to eat. Overall I wouldn't visit it in a long while again!

                                      At last a restaurant who can cook beef properly- rare in my case. Lovely sides and wonderful spuds both roasted and confit ( extra but worth it ) the wines were delightful Staff attentive, polite and friendly I wish this restaurant was closer to home

                                      What a shame that we had a disappointing experience. The Sunday lunch meat was very good but spoilt by the overall experience. We arrived early and was told that they could not seat us … understandable but when we returned, the tables we were offered had been empty when we arrived. Our starter came before our snack and drinks. Then we waited for at least 40 minutes for our main course to arrive whilst other tables (who arrived after us) were served. I had to remind the waiter. I believe we were forgotten. When food came there were no serving spoons making it difficult to serve. No one asked us how our food was until they came to remove our plates. I was not impressed. The senior waitress did all she could to apologise and listen to my concerns. The worst thing about the experience to top it all was the really uncomfortable seating … church pews, not something we wanted to sit on for a long time waiting for food to arrive. We will not return.

                                      Some places don’t change hugely over the years. For some restaurants that is not a good thing. For others it is because it they do exactly what their customers continue to want and it is almost impossible for them to improve on their food, having always hit such high standards. The Quality Chop House falls into the latter, rarified group. Do not let perceptions from the roadside influence you. This is a truly superb eatery. Oh, and it also has a to die for wine list.

                                      Recommended to try this place, was ok nothing special, went with my partner shared a starter, she had lamb and I had pork chop, my chop was far too fatty and not that enjoyable, we had two deserts that were nice and a bottle of wine £200 was the bill, I know it was London but had far better locally in Norfolk for less money

                                      I feel like the quality has changed. We have eaten many times here and it has been a staple favourite but not since the pandemic. The meat was extremely fatty and a much larger portion. Also everything was very oily and salty. The waiter wouldn’t leave us alone and was overly chatty and trying to tell us what to eat.

                                      It had been a while since I had eaten at the Chop House, which used to be a very good restaurant. My main recollection of my most recent (and probably last) visit is that the prices are now absurd. £16 for some very ordinary smoked salmon, a bit of bread, and some chopped shallot and capers, is steep. £34 for a small, tough, and fairly tasteless Barnsley chop served with no accompaniments is a scam. My friend's Tamworth chop was chunky, but a bit overdone and dry, and also north of thirty quid. The side order of confit potatoes was mediocre at best. Service was OK, albeit somewhat perfunctory. A carafe of very ordinary claret for £24 was meh. If in the area, dine at the Eagle or Moro instead.
