South Place Chop House 1

Squaremeal Review of South Place Chop House ?

A stone’s throw from Moorgate station, D&D London’s first hotel comprises top-floor fish palace Angler and this all-day, 18th century-inspired chop house, replacing what was 3 South Place. Decked out in shiny silver with sloping glass panels and a choice of communal or banquette seating, the restaurant possesses a seasonal menu. Classic starters include London-cured smoked salmon, Dorset crabcakes and Waldorf salad, while the main event is all about the protein: UK meat and game such as Black Angus chateaubriand and milk-fed veal is sourced from HG Walter, a long-established butcher in Barons Court. Fish options such as thornback ray with mussels, or steamed Cornish cod, are sustainably sourced from across the British Isles. Factor in a dessert list which includes a knickerbocker glory and weekend activities such as a bottomless Bellini brunch, and this Chop House is a fun place to be.

No chops, but a decent enough shop

by   platinum reviewer (77)

Aug 2016

To be honest, I can't say I was looking for a rapid return to South Place, given a somewhat uninspiring meal a few months earlier, but given the combination of finding ourselves in the City on a Saturday (zzzzzz), plus a revamped menu not to mention 50% discount off food during the first week of its new launch well it all added up to a bit of a no-brainer. First impressions were pretty good; very attentive staff immediately accepting our request to move to a table further away from the revolving...

Good but not amazing

by   gold reviewer (41)

Apr 2016

Editor's pick 3 South Place is a lovely modern hotel, restaurant and bar with a quirky design. The food is good but not amazing but fine for a quick business lunch. Service is ok but got the feeling they were a bit understaffed for the volume of people in the restaurant. If you want a far more special experience then go The Angler on the top of the hotel which is amazing but quite pricey. It is lovely for drinks after work in the bar but it's not for a cheap glass of wine!

On the fence....

by   platinum reviewer (77)

Mar 2016

Editor's pick This was one of those places where whilst I’ve got nothing bad to say about it, I cannot exactly rave about it either. The initial impression on arrival in the reception area is that you are stuck in a sort of “no-man’s land” between a very busy bar and a not so busy restaurant. Fortunately the hotel boasts several bars so we were shown to one where we were able to sit and sip our pre-prandials in relative peace. On returning to the restaurant, there was no discernible increase in custom so it...

Had a fab afternoon with great food, wine and company... would definitely recommend the food. Had a lovely rib eye steak.. was a little expensive £32.00 but was juicy, chunky chips were delish .. pity they didn't serve creamed spinach... but overall had a fab meal.

Since the building went up I have been intrigued with D&D's new foray into hotels. when the dinner special came to my attention on Square Meal I thought it great value and an opportunity to try out the new site. I wasn't disappointed very nice informal atmosphere, attentive service, nice buzz from the semi visible kitchen, good food and really excellent value £20 for a two course dinner including a glass of Argentinian fizz, more of this later but now to the food. My companion had the ham terrine...

We arrived for lunch at 1 pm on a Friday and it was predictably busy…but the noise level was so high I had to head forward across the table to be able to have a normal conversation with my colleague. The food was good and the service friendly & attentive. By 2.30 pm there were only 8 people in the restaurant, but every conversation was audible. The whole room is full of hard surfaces and glass reflecting sound, and nothing to absorb it. This is not a place to go for a relaxed, quiet meal, I'm afraid.

    LilyLipstick :: BRUNCH AT SOUTH PLACE HOTEL

    In case you didn't already know, brunch is the best meal ever. You can have it sweet, have it savory, have a bit of both and have it with alcohol. What's not to like? On the Saturday of the Easter weekend, Hannah, Sarah and I headed to the South Place Hotel in the City of London to indulge in their weekend brunch. With an a la carte menu, 2 course set menu, 3 course set menu and the option to add unlimited bellinis for £15 there really is something to please everyone. The hotel is tucked away in a side street off of Moorgate and while packed with City-folk during the week is quieter and calmer at weekends - perfect...

    Food Expectations :: Food Expectations South Place Bar amp Grill Review

    I had a business lunch and the person I was meeting suggested 3 South Place Bar & Grill at the South Place Hotel. I asked some friends and no one had heard of it but I checked the website and it looked good and the menu sounded very yummy.
    The hotel has two restaurants, a casual one on the ground floor and a fancier one on the roof (which is supposed to be very good).

    The Real Critics Guide :: The Real Critics Guide 3 South Place Review London UK

    The South Place Hotel is a modern hotel in the centre of town that brings unashamed modernity to accommodation and this is a review of the restaurant within. It has high standards and is a great place to stay, making it rise above the mediocrity that fills the city.
    3 South Place Restaurant is one of two eateries inside the hotel that offers a menu as modern as the surroundings and the quality to match. The dining room is a large, open canteen style room with huge windows at one end offering plenty of light.
