Butlers Wharf Chop House 1

Squaremeal Review of Butlers Wharf Chop House ?

There’s a decidedly nautical feel to this riverside restaurant with its oak panelling and enamelled ship’s pendants. Although the menu pays homage to the watery setting with oysters, potted shrimps and fisherman’s pie, the real draw is slabs of 28-day-aged beef, their juices locked in from the blisteringly hot charcoal grill. The fillets, sirloins, rib-eyes and T-bones all come at a price, with hand-cut chips an extra three quid, but there’s financial relief in more affordable mains such as grilled ox liver with mustard mash and onion gravy, or roast rump of lamb with beetroot, carrot and red-wine sauce. For afters, puddings are in the comforting nursery mould of lemon posset or apple crumble and custard. The adjoining bar is a good spot for a pie and a pint at wallet-friendly prices.

Butlers Wharf Chop House by the River Thames

by   bronze reviewer (7)

Sep 2015

pea and wild garlic soup – very tasty but I thought the chicken stock (shop bought stock cubes is my guess) was slightly too overpowering. deep fried whitebait with mayonnaise – the whitebait was fried in a lightly spiced batter, but was overly oily. It was however served with a delicious tartare sauce. sausage roll salmon fishcake with devilled mayonnaise – the fishcakes were slightly dry and the salad looks like a slapdash work. The crab meat in the mayonnaise was ace and I wish there...

Evening out with friend

May 2015

My friend & I had a very pleasant evening. Little bit too chilly to sit outside, but had a lovely table by the window with good views of the Thames and surroundings. Waiting staff were great, friendly and attentive. Food was very good and our cocktails were delightful, especially mine, Vodka, vermouth, olives, very lively!! Will definitely be going back.

Summer breeze at the Chop House

by   bronze reviewer (8)

I always enjoy the Chop House. I don't think it can be beaten on a breezy day if you can bag a table outside. Service was prompt apart from around 14h30 when everyone seemed to disappear, but our waiter was attentive the rest of the time, and the food was well cooked and arrived on time. A nice varied wine list.

I really struggled to review this – partly as the experience was so mixed. Went on Friday night with my girlfriend and booking online was simple although we didn't get the window table I'd asked for, despite some being free. When we arrived we got the wrong menus to start with (the dessert ones) and when replaced we still only got one main menu and yet another dessert menu. Drinks were a little slow to arrive and bread had to be asked for rather than offered. Main courses arrived and my girlfriend...

Me and my girlfriend ate here through an Evening Standard offer so expectations weren't exactly high but we were pleasantly surprised as we hadn't eaten at Butlers Wharf Chop House before. We were impressed by the choices on the menu and didn't leave hungry like you sometimes can on these things. I had pork with crispy crackling and my girlfriend had wild seabass. We had a great table on the terrace infront of Tower Bridge and our Italian waitress was really bubbly. It's amazing what a smile can...

I'm quite surprised to see so many negative reviews of this local, as my dining experiences at Chophouse have been nothing but satisfactory. Service is swift and polite with glimmers of quintessentially British professionalism. The menu which changes seasonally is full of well executed and fresh ingredients brought together on the plate with great skill (I've observed their daily deliveries many a time). Even the simplest dishes of fish and chips impress. My most recent trip consisted of a lip...

Lucky I had lunch, the portions are small the menu has changed not as good at it use to be . I asked for the smoked Goose breast ( there were 4 of us I was the only one to have a starter we received 4 ), 3 piece if wafer thin slices of goose the salad was nice but not worth the £9. this was in the main resturant, will not go there again sorry to say .

We tried the bar side (as opposed to the restaurant itself), where there is a restricted version of the full menu. Nobody came to receive us, so we sat at a convenient table. As it was early evening, there were just a few diners. Nevertheless, rather than a welcome when the head waiter appeared, we were interrogated brusquely about our booking status and whether we were intending to dine. Though we decided to stay, the staff remained unfriendly but also inefficient: a sherry ordered as aperitif came...

Having being a regular at the Chop house I have to say that the new menu leaves a lot to be desired (The head chef changed around three months ago). No longer are you able to order sumptuous steaks (not one on the menu) or some other true Brtish classics. Amazing considering the restaurant name and its heritage. In my view the chop house has now joined the long list of gastro pub style restaurants with reasonable food but nothing more. Bread – where has the famous bread gone – now only a small...

i went to the Butlers wharf for xmas; i thought it would be my xmas heaven and i was happy to pay a whooping 85pounds. Me and some friends were excited on the way but when we got there, te xmas spirit slowly desintegrated! 1) it was cold in the restuarant and we needed to keep our coats on- we had dressed up nicely but we had to cover up! 2) We had 3 hours allocated to our table, and we were happy to take our time and eat slowly but the waitresses kept coming back and asking if we were done with...
