THe chop house has always been a favourite British restaurant for locals (other being The Guinea Grill). Situated in Shad Thames with a brilliant location opposite Tower Bridge, this is no-fuss, quality produce and local cooking at its best. Simple home cooked fare in beautiful surroundings. The roast beef (with trimmings), fish and chips, potted shrimp and a decent wine... More

Not our first visit here, such a beautiful location and was the ideal choice to celebrate my step daughters graduation. Began well with cocktails in the bar and great table overlooking tower bridge. Meals and wine ordered, starters one short, had to advise the waiting staff ourselves as they hadn't noticed! No apology given. Final starter arrived after the whole... More

We visited the Chop House for dinner, the location was amazing just overlooking Tower Bridge. We started in the bar and the service was excellent. We then moved on to the restaurant we sat by the window so had a lovely view. The waiting staff were very attentative and the food was amazing. Am planning my next visit.

Obviously you go for the food but I also like to drink in an around the area as well and make a real night of it. If you like... More

Fab location, obviously, friendly staff did their best to accommodate us (hadn't booked). Food mostly excellent. But…harrassed & brusque head waiter clearly not a happy chap - stomping around barking orders at staff made for uncomfortable viewing. Stacking plates at the table ?!?! Speaking of discomfort, truly awful chairs. Large piece of gristle in my steak pudding. At these prices... More

Visited here on Sunday for my grandads 80th birthday, so a very very special occasion. The Chop House may have been one of the most disappointing culinary experiences we have ever had and 2 of the party own very successful restaurants, so we aren't naive diners. Our table for 9 (incl 1 child) was booked for 6pm, arrived at 5.55pm... More

My friend and I went to the restaurant area on Friday night for dinner. We were sat by the window and even saw Tower Bridge open whilst we ate which was great. The food was good, we both had the mussels and battered fish. The service was also very good, though we did get out glasses topped up with the... More

Went with my husband and 12 year old son. Early for our 12.30 booking but we're seated immediately and offered water while drink orders were taken. My lemonade wad horrible and was changed immediately with an apology. Had starters and mains. A thoroughly enjoyable experience and excellent views of Tower Bridge.

Description
We pride ourselves on serving modern British food that is locally sourced. Being located along London's riverside we have all kinds of amazing suppliers at our finger tips with the likes of Cannon and Cannon from Borough Market bringing you the best in British charcuterie and grass-fed Spey side Angus X steaks, our restaurant is brimming with quality ingredients. As well as meat we like to think our fish & seafood is pretty good too, with Foreman's smoked salmon, Carlingford Rocks Oysters and sumptuous lobster. Soak up magnificent views across to Tower Bridge and beyond, we like to think this it is the perfect place to come and sample one of our craft ale's or peruse our extensive gin list. The Chop House bar has a relaxed atmosphere adjacent to the main restaurant and is a great place to stop by for a quick bite to eat or to enjoy cocktails in a relaxed setting, overlooking Tower Bridge. Whether you're on a lunch break with colleagues or popping in at the weekend with family there is something for everybody's taste.
