SquareMeal Review of Paternoster Chop House

Being the First Dates restaurant of choice is rather cool, but don’t let its TV fame distract you: the Paternoster Chop House really means business. Here is a kitchen that butchers all its meaty carcases in-house, so expect roast bone marrow among the starters, steak and kidney pudding “chock-full” of meat, and plenty of action from the Josper grill when it comes to Black Angus rib-eyes, Middle White pork chops and suchlike. It’s all robust stuff, but with plenty of refinement too. Elsewhere, game turns up in season and seafood gets a good outing (fish and chips and whole Dover sole, for example), while the classically minded simplicity extends to desserts of sticky toffee pudding and vanilla cheesecake. Hand-cut chips and other essential sides can bump up the bill, although the set menu is particularly good value. Paternoster’s heated covered terrace is a “lovely spot”, with a stunning backdrop courtesy of Sir Christopher Wren.

We ate the fixed price lunch for L22 pounds: I had pate and a fish cake. Our 1 pint of beer must have been +L10, because our ordinary lunch cost L66. It was incredibly ordinary, boorish British food. Even the beer was boring. I'd eaten better food for 1/3 of the price the day before. Go to the first pub you see instead.

Everything is lovely about this place but it's the service that stands out. Really top notch and they know how to make you feel special even if you're just ordering off the set menu. My only gripe, and it wasn't a massive gripe, was that the pint of beer I got wasn't too cold, and it was a hot day where ice cold was needed! Any other day and it would have been five out of five for everything.

Smart, cozy city restaurant in Paternoster Square. Great for a meal if you are taking in the sights of St Paul's, The Millenium Bridge or even after a look around The Tate. Atmosphere was a little buzzy when we dined, however the lunchtime rush was soon over (after 2pm) and we enjoyed a leisurley lunch with friends. The potted shirmp, Middle White pork, Somerset chicken and wild garlic soup were heartily praised (expensive but worth it). The catch of the day however was sublime. Never have I ate such glorious Seabass! The staff were ok, busy at first but then gave us more time and helped us chose a few glasses of vino to accompany our meals.
