Sunday lunch at the Quality Chop House was very good. I shared the lamb for 2 and it was excellent. A cosy table as usual, with any stiffness negated by liberal consumption of the wine on offer!

Terrific Sunday roast. Great value and service. Room is characterful but unusual. Some will love the church pew booths; others may find them a little cramped.

Food was fantastic and very great quality and value. The only thing I would put down as a negative was the bench style tables, they were very narrow and got uncomfortable after a while.

During our trip to London we have passed two evenings at the Quality Chop House. The first evening as couple, the second evening with our children. Both evenings we enjoyed very much, the quality of the food and the preparation was outstanding, the service very welcoming. We also liked the dining room for its authentic ambiance. We would recommand this adress to everyone.

I booked an early table at the Chop House which I’ve always loved but haven’t been for years spurred on by a food writer friend’s post on Instagram @slowdownandeat (Susan Low of Delicious magazine) and we shared a steak, legendary confit potato bricks and Parmesan broccoli on top of a couple of yummy starters and an order of elegant croquettes. Too much food to finish, but tasty and the ambience is fantastic

Very good food quality (other than dessert), the ambiance recalls old times and smells like old England, but the overall bill was decidedly too expensive, should be at least 20-25% less.

Had a wonderful Saturday lunch. Friendly, welcoming service, attentive but not at all intrusive. All of our chosen dishes were cooked to perfection including steak and pork. The confit potatoes were a revelation!

We found the smaller wine list adequate although a more substantial one is available on request. The set menu was genuinely amazing value yet also generous and left us all feeling full.

Farringdon seems blessed with some wonderful restaurants and this is without doubt close to the top of that list for me.

Food was amazing! Attentive staff. The seats were excruciatingly uncomfortable which spoilt the experience. Tiny shallow church pews which for anyone over 5 feet tall made sitting down for more than 15 minutes a problem. It’s a real shame as otherwise we loved it. Probably won’t return.

Very good food and service in a restaurant that has preserved a lot of original character which is refreshing when compared with the often 'faux' character of modern restaurant chains. Having said that 3 hours on a not particularly comfortable chair takes its toll! I fully understand that space and small tables constrains type/choice of chair that but why the need to punish one part of the anatomy while indulging others so wonderfully.

My third time having Sunday lunch here and yet another fantastic meal. I would probably go as far as saying it’s the best Sunday roast I’ve ever had. The service was impeccable, welcoming and attentive. The meat was exquisite but it was the vegetable accompaniments that I almost enjoyed more (as with previous visits)! Great wine selection too.

Wonderful. Low key high end dining - just what I love. Sommelier was a highlight - not remotely snobby about wine but one of my dining companions was a qualified expert and the sommelier handled him wonderfully (and recommended really wonderful wines).
Definitely a new favourite of mine.
