SquareMeal Review of Chimes

Comfort food abounds at this homage to no-nonsense English cooking, which has been plying its trade on a Pimlico side street for nearly 30 years. Don’t expect to see Welsh lamb or Scottish smoked salmon on the menu, let alone pasta or pommes frites – Chimes is unashamedly Anglocentric in outlook. The menu tours the counties for dishes such as Shropshire fidget pie, Cumberland sausages & mash or cod in West Country cider, while treacle tart & apple crumble fight it out on the list of self-proclaimed ‘puddings’ (not ‘desserts’!). The dining room resembles an English country pub with worn wooden tables & dusty bric-a-brac complemented by a lovely old bar, which serves up a vast orchard of ciders including Weston’s Old Rosie at a dizzying 8% abv.

Flora E. 10 August 2014

Chimes has been here for more than twenty years – they served English Cider before it was trendy, and sausages before they were healthy! Now, sadly, they appear to have decided to chase the tourist trade and are paying little attention to the quality of the food.
