Square Meal Review of Paternoster Chop House ?

A smart, cavernous canteen for City suits, this veteran of the D&D stable may not win awards for inventiveness, but it’s a safe pair of hands in an area where tourists rub shoulders with lawyers and stockbrokers. Stick to the simple grills or fish dishes and you won’t be disappointed: Dover sole, brill and “sublime” sea bass might feature on a list of catches from British day boats, while the excellent steaks and chops are butchered on site. Sides can bump up the bill, but a “decently priced” all-day set menu evens the score – think wild garlic soup followed by toothsome Devon bavette with chips and béarnaise. Puds are fashionably retro – Arctic roll, rhubarb jelly, Cambridge burnt cream – and there’s a fair smattering of English sparkling wines and British ales on the eclectic drinks list.

    I knew that their speciality was steak, so I always assumed it would be quite expensive, and more for special occasions. However, I came across the set menu on their website: Two courses for £19.50 or three for £24.50, which seemed very reasonable.

    Being a food blogger, I love a restaurant...
