Review on The Quality Chop House

Following a closure of two years, The Quality Chop House in Farringdon was relaunched in 2012 with a Dining Room, Wine Bar, Butchers and Food Shop. Designed and built in the 1870s by Sir Roland Plumbe, the original Quality Chop House was one of a breed of 'eating houses' intended to provide the city's working men with affordable meals to see them through the day. The new team at the helm bring a wealth of experience with them, Will Lander is the son of wine expert Jancis Robinson and restaurant critic Nicholas Lander, and Josie Stead has worked in Dinner by Heston Blumenthal and Sketch. Critics and foodies are all in agreement that this duo have proved to be a winning combination.

In its current incarnation, the Chop House adds a few modern twists to its no-nonsense approach to classic British food, although its dcor and atmosphere are true to the spirit of the original. Heading the kitchen is Shaun Searley who previously sharpened his knives at Bistrotheque in Bethnal Green. Whether you fancy smoked salmon with horseradish and lemon or chicken offal and girolles on toast, the menu delivers. Main courses offer up dishes in the shape of Hebridean lamb, haggis, rainbow chard and girolles or maybe fish pie with watercress. When it comes to desserts there's Cava jelly, vanilla cream and blueberry compote or Earl grey brle, paired with shortbread.

Knowledge staff, a pleasant buzz and a first-class wine list ensures that The Quality Chop House it hitting all the right notes.
