Place for meat lovers

The restaurant is located a short walk away from Smithfield market and surely offers quality pieces of beef, this is a must try chop house. The atmosphere is not particularly romantic, rather food oriented, the dishes are simple but well prepared and with quality ingredients. I tried the baked... read more

Grumpy greeting at reception and would probably have left it had been my reservation. Service uninspiring and food not bad but really not much better than a chain steakhouse.

We visited the Chop House expecting big things from the hype we had read online before dining. The reality was far from it. We arrived at 8pm and sat down ordered a couple of cocktails and browsed the extensive and expensive menu. A waiter came over after 5 minutes and asked us if we wanted to see the 'meat board'...

Visited a few times mainly for lunch. Fabulous oysters and great steaks although last time I had fabulous adult type fish fingers...lovely. Well trained staff. Good wine selection. Try the pork scratchings as a snack while you look at the menu.

You can see from my countless reviews of restaurants across London and further afield that I tend to highlight weaknesses wherever and wherever they exist in an establishment. The context on this occasion is a Sunday Lunch for two, and we selected a appetizer from the A La Carte, and also from the set Sunday Lunch menu, the beef steak.... More

Our dinner at Hix last night could not have been worse. To begin with, we were barely greeted upon entering by a stone faced host. Our starter of Scallops with bacon and butternut squash was average at best; the scallops were over cooked, the bacon sparse, and the dish completely lacked flavour. Then came the mains, I got the hanger... More

Went there yesterday, here how it went: 1. They did not have the wine which was in on the wine list, in general I think there wines are little bit too pricey. 2. Ordered medium rear T-bone for two, got rear, they had to take it away and cook little bit more. 3. Ordered two salads, got one. And as... More

It's quite expensive restaurant, the service was very good and the food was very delicious as well, however, we waited long time for our main course to come.

Staying in Clerkenwell

Neighborhood Profile
Clerkenwell
Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site of an ancient meat market which remains in operation today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough time wondering through the area's maze of streets and you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky models passing between Clerkenwell's handful of fashion houses. Far outnumbering the models are craftspeople and designers, many of them are more than happy to welcome visitors into their studios and showrooms.
