The Quality Chop House | Farringdon Restaurant
Behold a place that totally lives up to its name.
A 19th-century working man’s eating house – revamped as a Modern British dining room and wine bar – The Quality Chop House has been feeding the residents of Farringdon, and those from a little further afield, since 1896. And it was all getting a little ‘meh’, until 2012 when the grade-II listed dining room was taken over by new owners, who overhauled the menu, the service…and added cushions to the wooden benches, in order to make the entire experience more comfortable for diners.
The menu here changes daily depending on what’s available, with fish coming in fresh from Cornwall, and bread baked in-house under the strict guidance of expert baker Ben Glazier using rare-breed grains from Northamptonshire.
This results in an impressive and delicious medley of recognisable dishes like whole game birds; Devon crab with Jerusalem artichoke; duck rillettes with sourdough & pickles; and a slab-like Barnsley lamb chop sided by some remoulade.
