Review on Mr Thomas's Chop House
Britannia rules in this extraordinarily flamboyant converted Victorian pub, once run by a certain Mr Thomas Studd (who is remembered in the name of the restaurant). It's a tall, slim Georgian building that has been cleaned up and lovingly restored to reveal stunning arches and the intense green lustre of Victorian tiles. There's also a new decorative theme in the form of a living photographic archive, bringing to life the customers and characters of the past.
Corned beef hash cake with poached egg and legendary HP dressing is a star turn, otherwise the menu promises bowls of brown onion soup, slow-braised venison and claret casserole with mustard and herb dumplings, home-made cheese and onion pie pie and – of course – steak and kidney pud with a jug of gravy for pouring. Needless to say, the trip down memory lane ends up with traditional sherry trifle and sticky toffee pudding.
Mr Thomas's brother, Sam's Chop House in Chapel Walks, is also run by the same company.
