The Quality Chop House is a Dining Room, Wine Bar and Wine Shop on Farringdon Road just around the corner from Exmouth Market. We take reservations for the Dining Room in the evening but not in the Wine Bar. At lunch we take reservations on both sides but there are always a few tables left for walk-ins.
The Quality Chop House has been an eating house since 1869. The designer, Rowland Plumbe, wanted to create utilitarian spaces for the masses that had a touch of glamour. The Chop House was the only restaurant he designed and soon became hugely popular – local residents and London’s literary elite shared its trademark booths and enjoyed "a plate of meat, bread and half a pint of ale for six pence".
The menu has changed but the spirit has not.
Please be aware that, in the evening, for bookings up to 4 guests we will require the table back after 2 hours and 2 1/2 hours for 5 guests or more. This will give you ample time to enjoy our set menu and won't leave you feeling rushed but we do like to let people know.
TABLES OF TWO
Please note if you are a two, you may be sharing one of our large booths in our listed dining room with another 2 (they are built for 6, so it is not a squeeze).
We take reservations for both our a la carte lunch menu and also our 4-course supper menu.
Our lunch menu is offered in both the Dining Room & Wine Bar. Bookings available.
In the Dining Room we offer a fixed 4-course daily changing supper menu for £35. Please let us know if you or your guests have any dietary requirements when booking so that we can best provide alternatives before your arrival. Bookings essential.
If you are interested in a table for more than 6 we have a Private Dining Room that seats up to 10. A feasting menu is available. For more information please give us a call.
In the evening we offer a list menu. We do not take bookings, so just pop along when you like.
