When a scotch egg starter turns out to be an unmissable dish (thanks to some short rib and burnt onion mayo) you know a place is serious about its food. The fact that Chop House’s beef is butchered in house, dry-aged for 35 or 50 days, then cooked on a custom-made open-flame grill also helps. There's lobster, oysters and scallops on the menu for seafood lovers, but let's be honest: the steak is the pull here. The usual cuts (sirloin, ribeye, fillet) are cooked to melt-in-your-lucky-mouth perfection, and can be paired with inventive yet familiar sides such as sesame slaw and dripping chips. There are sharing cuts for couples (or extra hungry singles), with the likes of chateaubriand and porterhouse priced by weight. The well-trained staff are there to walk you through it all, from sauces (think chimichurri and bone marrow gravy) to sweets. The gooey brownie and orange sponge won't disappoint, while the cheese menu is as wide-ranging as the after-dinner cocktail list. There's no pretension here, just exceptional quality. The atmosphere is relaxed, the bar is well-stocked and the service as impeccable as the food.
