SquareMeal Review of Christopher's

Bronze Award

Christopher's may have celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2016, but the handsome Grade II-listed Victorian building has a longer history than that and was once home to London's first licensed casino. There's no need to take a gamble on the menu, which is a selection of reliably good stateside staples: juicy Maine lobsters and prime steaks hailing from the US, Scotland and Australia are the winning bets, but you'll also strike lucky with moist Maryland crab cakes or slow-cooked pork belly and Ibérico chop served with Boston baked beans and creamed corn. Lighter choices include fresh salmon carpaccio with a zingy tequila and key lime dressing, but you're likely to lose all will-power when you see the line-up of decadent desserts such as New York cheesecake or chocolate, peanut butter and caramel tart with espresso ice cream. Brunch is always a big deal here too, with readers rating the 'build-your-own pancake' menu, "delicious options" and "really lovely atmosphere".

Food beautiful but staff need strong words in hygiene

The restaurant it's self was lovely and staff greeted and served us with no issues. The food was delicious. Our drinks came out after food was served which was odd. Unfortunately the whole experience for me was put off by what I witnessed in the bathroom. It makes my stomachs turn.. a staff member was in the loo for quite some time, when she came the smell was stomach turning but what made it worse was she didn't even wash her hands!! 15 minutes later my sister then went the bathroom and witnessed the same thing! This staff memeber is serving food (not to us) and not washing her hands after the toilet!! Absolutely disgusting

You've gotta try the Scallops!

I've always wanted to try this restaurant, having booked it for my Managers for years. I wasn't disappointed! I had the scallops to start and steak for main, it was A-MAY-ZING. Seriously good food, it's nt cheap but you get what you pay for . The quality of the food and wine is the best I've had for a very long time.

Love this place. We didn't attend as theatre goers although this seems to be the predominate clientele. Its great to take the time and have some of their amazing cocktails.
