Review on Paternoster Chop House
The dramatic dome of St Paul's provides a patriotic backdrop for the Paternoster Chop House which tries to conjure up some of the atmosphere of pre-war Paternoster Square. The menu has a home-grown feel, and seasonality is the name of the game. Native ingredients are carefully sourced from artisan producers, fisheries, farmers and markets across the country, and the results are endlessly appetising.
In summer, you might feast on wild sea bass with preserved lemon and caper salad, roast Portland plaice with fresh peas or Brymoor veal with broad beans. Come winter, thoughts turn to Jerusalem artichoke soup, steamed wild mushroom pudding and roast game birds with bread sauce. Neglected ingredients such as alexanders, chickweed and sea beet regularly put in an appearance, while puddings could range from custard tart with candyfloss to chocolate tart with buckthorn sorbet.
You can sip pints of real ale in the adjoining bar or pick something from the impressive wine list, which offers a quartet of bottles from English vineyards alongside an array of fine Burgundies and tasty New World names.
