Second time I've been here and a pleasant return. The food is good as is the service. It's not cheap but the atmosphere is worth it. We found it easy to talk too.

The restaurant has a good atmosphere - buzzy and noisy and it was full. We had brunch and I had the Eggs Benedict which arrived slightly cool but it was absolutely delicious with lots of Hollandaise sauce which is how I like it. However my husband was very disappointed that they didn't have a 'full English' which is his favourite.... More

8am Friday morning breakfast with a friend. Despite the title on here which is slightly confusing, the restaurant serves all the classics for breakfast like a typical hotel. Ground floor restaurant which is very crisp and modern inside. Good buzz including a big group of young cityboys on a jolly up. Full English was good but wasn't blown away. I... More

This is a lovely airy restaurant on the 7th floor of the Boutique South Place Hotel. The ambience is light and airy. The service is very friendly and professional. The seating is very comfortable. We had the set lunch menu ( crab followed by pollock) which was delicious and high quality. The portion size was perfect for me but might... More

This is our 4th stop at this hotel and the standards are still excellent. Friendly staff, very nice rooms and well located. Would advise a meal in the Michelin star restaurant on the top floor and have a drink on the roof top Terrace. Well done again South Place Hotel!

I popped in here for a business lunch. Whilst I cannot fault the food or service it was quite expensive taking into consideration the entire experience. I would definitely go back and do recommend it to anyone who has time to kill before catching a train from Liverpool Street station.

Description
South Place Chop House takes inspiration from London's traditional chop houses - marrying good food with engaging service and a great atmosphere. The venue has been given a makeover, with stacks of classic copper pans, artwork by Thorbjorn Andersen and a choice of intimate banquette seating as well as larger, communal tables. The cooking - led by Head Chef Oliver Marlowe - is skilled and gutsy. A refinement of the conventional 18th Century Chop House style, it's perfect for contemporary tastes and sensibilities, food you return to: tasty, satisfying and wholesome. The uncomplicated, ever-changing menu is dedicated to seasonal and carefully sourced cuts of meat and freshly caught fish, modernised with continental flavours and seasoning. Dishes are designed to reflect nature's best offerings as they hit their peak: foraged wild garlic, English strawberries or game from the Highlands.

Neighborhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
