Butler’s Wharf Chophouse – Shad Thames, London

30 Mar

In theory, the Butler’s Wharf Chophouse caters for everyone and indeed the Baked Artichoke Hotpot does look delicious. But let’s face it… you come to the Chophouse for a chop and that’s exactly what you get. A massive, mouthwatering chop!

The Venue

The Chophouse has a smart but relaxed ‘lodge’ interior adorned with wood and chunky furniture. Cream shabby chic French doors line the wall which looks out to THE view. Beautifully located along the Thames, with the Tower Bridge as a backdrop, BWC ticks all the boxes for a hearty (no pun intended) romantic rendezvous. The atmosphere is perfect, bustling but not overcrowded, healthy chatter and laughter without the usual hushed tones of some more pretentious establishments.

The Food

The menu showcases the best of British, so B-Y-O strong stomachs and elasticated waistbands! Pig trotters, liver and bone marrow are regulars for the brave and slow cooked Angus beef cheeks (to die for!). Old-school steaks and chops are also available for the less adventurous.

Desserts are old English classics and dare I say it… even better than your mother’s!  Rice pudding with rhubarb, trifle, sticky toffee pudding and Cambridge burnt cream. Wash it down with some of the delicious English Ortega wine, a lovely summer tipple and harvested right here in the Biddenden Vineyards vineyards in the beautiful Kent countryside…

The Verdict

Everything is cooked to perfection and literally melts in your mouth. It’s been a long time since I’ve used the word divine with food but this is definitely the place to use it in abundance! Zumba + Spin tomorrow.

I would urge anyone with a healthy appetite to head down to the river and enjoy these crisp Spring evenings with some top nosh! (Just don’t eat before you go!)
