SquareMeal Review of The Butcher's Hook

Day or night, the delightful ‘Hook’ seems to be abuzz with locals & off-duty professionals – testament to the all-round quality of its offering. Its pared-back, gastropub interiors are starting to look a little worn, but the atmosphere, food & wine keep punters coming back for more. Helpful & clued-up staff are on hand to cope with a daily menu that might run from confit pig’s cheek with chorizo & smoked paprika, via a classic cassoulet for two with walnut salad to hot chocolate fondant. Many dishes come with suggested wine pairings, & the ‘diverse’ list includes plenty of good bins around the £20 mark. A blackboard menu is available all day, so pop in for potted shrimps or some homemade biltong to go with your pint of Greene King IPA.

We have been coming to the Hook since it opened and it has never disappointed. The food really is excellent and the wine list diverse. The service is helpful and knowledgeable. We have been here as part of a group and just us 2 and there is always a great atmosphere. How such a tiny kitchen produces such good food is beyond me but they do consistently. My husband even had a “very important” birthday here – for 30 people – great fun, food and wine had by all! Highly recommended!

Crikey… I can't recognise the pub Kate L visited from her review. I've lived perilously close to the BH for years and I love it. Sometimes my girlfriend and I have to remind ourselves there ARE other places. You only need to go to one of the regular wine dinners to know that they care enormously about food, and the atmosphere is brilliant. You can't please all the people all the time, but it has to be worth another try. (Not when Chelsea are at home, mind, but anyone who lives near Stamford Bridge knows that.)

Booked a table for Sunday lunch. Main bar area seemed quite buzzy but we were unfortunately sat behind the wall next to a table of small children who appeared to be dining alone. Felt like we were eating in a school dinner hall. Zero atmosphere. We placed our order for roast beef and one minute later the meals arrived. Quicker than MacDonalds. The food has clearly been prepared in advance and stuck on some hot plate as the roast potatoes were so hard you practically had to hack them apart. I had several layers of stringy beef fat piled on top of two edible slices of beef. The vegetables were sparse. Very poor. it's a shame as we have just bought a house in a neighbouring street and hoped it would be a local restaurant for us. Would not go back.
