Excellent yet again ..... best dining experience I had in the town. Very good food and superb service.
First time here. Overall good atmosphere. Splendid food and service.
Excellent food and good service with friendly staff. Good food choices with a good set menu
Excellent food, good service but staff really busy so did need the odd reminder on drinks but not their fault. Overall would definitely recommend.
Sunday lunch the first time that I visited was very good, all the veg was hot and so I decided to visit again with my husband who hadnt been with us before. The parsnips and carrots were cold as they were served in a tin mug in which they hung over the top. I love crispy potatoes, but these were served with so much grease still on them, the gravy was also tepid. I know they were very busy but their prices are high for a sunday lunch so standards shough be high. The 250ml of red wine was expensive at £7.00 so my husband had a beer instead. We did mention the probs to the waitress who very kindly apologised and also offered us drinks in way of compensation which we declined(we didnt mention the problems to gain anything) the service and welcome are second to none, it was just a bit disappointing about the meal. we will visit again when it is less busy.
I had high hopes for The Chophouse! Unfortunately, it didn't live up to them. The staff were friendly and helpful but the service was mostly slow throughout the evening. Our main courses were brought to us after a long wait and not all together so we had to wait for one of the meals (steak) to arrive while those that had arrived were getting cold. When the steak arrived, it came without a steak knife so again had to wait for a waiter to pass so that we could request one. The two lamb dishes ordered were supposed to come with "beef fat potatoes" which to me and everyone else at the table meant roast potatoes. Instead they were boiled and crushed and mixed with what appeared to be mushroom - I do not eat mushrooms and so left all of the potatoes. The lamb was ok, not great, part of it was mushy!!?! There was also a sauce with the lamb which appeared to have cheese in it - again, not what was on the menu. I ended up leaving most of the meal and thought I'd be asked how it was when the waiter came to collect plates but instead was given a sheepish look as the plates were collected. I should have said then it was disappointing and not what was stated on the menu. Desserts were ok as were the starters - albeit over-priced. The meal came to approx £180 for three of us which I'd not have minded paying if the food and service was better. We heard two other patrons at separate tables complaining about food and service also. Shame to say I won't be visiting here again.
Nice intimate clean space with soft lighting. Attentive and friendly staff, delicious locally sourced food prepared with excellence. An intentionally long gap between courses to allow for digestion! Menu is not overwhelming. We have only rated the food 5 instead of 6 because we were not particularly fond of the onion rings and thought the sorbet was a bit too boozy - but that is just personal preference. Value for money has been rated as 'expensive' - it is! But it does reflect a high quality of cooking. We were sat next to a fairly loud table so have rated the noise levels as average. Will definitely be returning!
This was our first visit and definitely won't be our last. We went for our wedding anniversary and had a lovely meal. The staff were all very polite and attentive but not overly so. The food was really good, well cooked, well presented and tasty. We had 3 courses from the set menu and had thought as it was such a reasonable price that maybe portions were small but we both left feeling we had eaten plenty. We are planning to go again soon with a group from work.
Our first here for my partners birthday. Heard good things and it didn't disappoint. The welcome was warm and friendly and we were taken straight to our table even though we were early. Starters we had panko calamari and creamy mushroom on bread chatuebriand for main (Gorgeous) and for dessert the chocolate brownie and the vegan (Not that were vegan) beetroot sorbet and chocolate moose. Loved the decor and the toilets were gorgeous will defo return. Thank You very much 👍👍👍
We had been meaning to visit The Chophouse for ages, and after their Sunday roast was recommended to us by a friend, we decided it’s about time we went. We’re so glad we did. The service was exceptional, food delicious and plentiful and the decor very tastefully done. We look forward to returning to sample their weekday/Saturday menu soon, but if their Sunday roast is anything to go by, then we won’t be disappointed. Highly recommended you try The Chophouse.
