We visited this to take up their special 4 course fish deal. All the 3 main courses were superb. The starter of. Mixed dish of mussels, squid, prawns and fish cooked in a sauce was superb. 2nd course was lobster ravioli which was excellent and...the main course was swordfish stuffed with mussels cooked in a superb sauce.
As it was Fizz Friday we had a bottle of champagne at half price to accompany this and I also hade 2 pints of cask ale.
My wife raised a minor issue which was quickly dealt with and they then. Insisted on not charging for the 2 pints although I was happy to pay in full. A superb meal once more at The Chopping Block.More
Visited here on the last day of the month in September.
The food on the whole was extremely good, with the starter and main being a lot better than the dessert.
It was very slow at times between courses despite there only being one other...table in, and so there were long waits.
Had the 'Black pudding + apple' as a starter followed by the 'Tarragon chicken' as a main. These were amazing.
The 'Sticky toffee puddin' as a dessert was okay.More
Lovely sounding menu but sadly the food and service don't deliver.
I had the
Butternut Squash soup with bacon
Pulled Beef Yorkshire Pudding with veg.
The bacon was totally unrendered lardons ....inedible!
Commented to the server who asked how it was, but received no response....Not bothered!
Pulled beef and gravy was totally tasteless!
The spinach was gritty and unwashed
and the whole thing was under seasoned
Frankly I can't be bothered to go back. This is my 2nd visit and my 2nd disappointment. The place wasn't busy...the waiter commented that we were the only people there....so being rushed wasn't the problem.
Too many other places to try I'm afraid.
The only plus point here is it's easy to distance here.More
Visited here with my family for a Sunday lunch.
The reason why we chose to have Sunday lunch at the chopping block was because the lunch looked amazing.
We all had the beef and to be fair it wasn’t a bad dinner. BUT THE YORKSHIRE...PUDDING WAS FROZEN IN THE MIDDLE.
All the food wasn’t as hot as it should have been to be honest.
I was going to complain but being with the family I felt a little embarrassed.
Won’t be visiting again,More
Early Sunday evening spontaneous meal .... Wow... great service... excellent menu & what great value... we had the Set Menu.
•Garlic Mushrooms & Whitebait followed by Pulled Beef Filled Yorkshire Pudding & Fishcakes... then an absolutely amazing Fruit Crumble to share... served exactly how we...love it... sharp enough to taste the fruit but a creamy sweet custard to complement...
I don’t often write reviews but felt the service & food absolutely deserved it today... Well done .....

Fine dining food at excellent prices. We have eaten here quite often in the last few years. Every meal I have had has been perfect. Fish dishes always excellent. The service is efficient and friendly. Going again this week.
Visited here for a few drinks on a Friday evening. Walk in's accepted and we were seated at the front of the pub.
Nice pleasant surroundings and atmosphere with friendly staff offering table service.
We were sat in a cosy corner and felt comfortable throughout....Drinks arrived quickly and were priced the same as any other nearby pub.
All in all , positive experience and would return again.More
