Butlers Wharf Chop House

Butlers Wharf Building, 36E Shad Thames, London, SE1 2YE

A stunning location by the river, classic English food and relaxed surroundings, The Butlers Wharf Chop House is an ideal place for lunch or dinner, especially for those with hearty appetites. London is a city that is gradually learning to use the opportunities offered to it by one of the country's major rivers, and with Tower Bridge, arguably one of the finest of its kind in the world, right on the doorstep, Butlers Wharf Chop House has not been slow to take advantage. The spacious, airy restaurant is based on the idea of a traditional English boating house or cricket pavilion with oak lined walls and comfortable solid seating. During the summer the doors can be opened onto the riverside terrace providing outside seating and letting the diners inside benefit from the good weather too.

Head Chef Nicky Foley takes pride in making the most of Britain's natural resources and culinary heritage. His menu is innovative and seasonal with an emphasis on flavour can be showcased from his passion for quality and new methods for preparing dishes.
 
The day starts at 8am with breakfast, ranging from hot buttered crumpets, through fried, scrambled, poached or boiled eggs served with toasted farmhouse bread, Halesworth cured bacon or Bury black pudding. The location makes it an ideal setting for a breakfast meeting or a leisurely weekend brunch on the terrace.

Lunch and Dinner menus could include whelks, oysters, clams, and prawns all served in their shells with mayonnaise to hand. Moving on, steak and kidney pudding, as you prefer, is a good antidote to a hard morning on the Exchange floor, with champagne to celebrate if it finally went your way. Roasted Aberdeen Angus beef is served with Yorkshire pudding and roast potato to complete the dish.

Dishes such as East Sussex Coast turbot with watercress and béarnaise are in the mains, but few dishes seem more English than whole grilled lemon sole, Cornish crab and salt marsh samphire. The pigeon and lamb sweetbreads pie has baby beets and summer turnips to fill any places the pie misses.

As well as featuring British cheeses and savouries, Winston's nursery style puddings such as sticky toffee pudding with toffee sauce and Jersey clotted cream; buttermilk pudding with summer fruits, are not to be missed.

The Chop House has a comfortable bar, with a set menu at incredible value that features some of the classic dishes from the restaurant, and a set menu of daily specials. The bar stocks a fine range of traditional English beers including Old Speckled Hen and Black Sheep Ale. The bar also offers a lunch and dinner menu daily - what could be more civilised than sitting out on the terrace of a sunny Saturday morning enjoying breakfast and the morning paper before moving on in the fullness of time for a little mild activity, defying the famous Churchill dictum.

Further details on group bookings, plus their daily changing menu, can be found on their Website .

REVIEWS OF Butlers Wharf Chop House

Lillian (26 March 2011)

With a friend, we decided to try the Chop House, Butlers Wharf, London. What a fantastic luncheon experience! The attentive waiting staff were excellent, when the plates were cleared it was done with such finesse that we did not notice the plates had been removed. There was plenty of room for the comfort of customers and for the waiting staff to manoeuvre. The food was brilliant to say the least and the waiter explained not only what the ingredients were used but how it was prepared. I had the ox tongue for a starter, a little salty but still can't really fault it. My friend had a pig trotter for a starter, the first time she had tried it and loved it. It had been cooked slowly for four hours, shredded and deep fried. For the main course, we both chose the rib eye steak medium rare, we were given steak knives but we didn't really need it as the steaks were so tender a butter knife would have sliced through the meat. We both had bread and when we were offered more bread, the butter knives were changed swiftly, we did not have to ask for anything apart from our choice of wine, food and water. It was absolutely brilliant, we both ordered the same dessert, sticky toffee pudding, and wow! What more can I say - just wow again. As far as I can say this restaurant so far is my favourite and the bill was not a shocker either. I would love for Michel Roux to visit this restaurant if he has not done so all ready because his televised program 'Michel Roux's Service' showed exactly what front of staff should be and the Chop House is just that.

Colin (22 February 2007)

Great food, but don't be deceived by the two course set lunch advertised at £10. If you want potato and vegetables with your main course it will cost you an extra £6. With service charge the two courses will cost £18 - not £10. I think that this is dishonest, and it put us in a bad mood, which was a pity as the food was excellent and good value - they don't need to use underhand sales tactics to get the punters in there! Great location too, particularly in the summer.
