This Butler's Wharf spot from the D&D group boasts some cracking views - Tower Bridge is merely the hurl of a meat-cleaver away. And if you need further proof of its proximity to the Thames? The al fresco terrace is furnished with rubber rings. Best to stay the right side of the wall, all the same.
Meats - particularly steaks - play an important role on a menu celebrating all things British. Think Gloucester old spot pork chops with a bramley apple and cider sauce, salt marsh lamb cutlets, British charcuterie and eight cuts of steak - all from grass-fed Speyside Angus X cattle.
The wine list features a good number by the glass and the carafe, with options from well-known regions of France, Italy, South Africa, Argentina and South Africa. The by-the-bottle list is extensive, and divided by country and region. Keep an eye out for 'enliveners', too - an Earl Grey Tea here combines Jensen London gin, Earl Grey, Chase rhubarb, lemon and mint.

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 Michell 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.
This restaurant is quite nice and has amazing views of Tower Bridge so best place to sit is most certainly next to the window. The food is British cuisine and was just ok nothing special. Also I felt the staff was not very welcoming and quite standoffish which was off putting.
However was a nice night out and had a lovely view to stare at whilst eating and enjoying the company of my friend but would I go back perhaps not just because I have had better British cuisine in other restaurants and the staff put me off. However if you love British cuisine and would love a lovely view of Tower Bridge then I would say go along and enjoy.
Once the sun comes out this is the ultimate al fresco dining experience, with the Tower Bridge and the Thames, great fish, wine and service, just hmmmm, needs to be done
I have never been so embarrassed in all my life! I have a Spanish friend that came over to the UK and after being treated in Barcelona I decided to take her to London to see the sights and we ended up in the Butlers Wharf Chop House by the Tower of London for something to eat. We went there as the Evening Standard was running a promotion to eat 3 courses for 15 pounds. I thought this was good . However we were put in the restuarant where there was not the same deal but the Evening standard was supposedly doing a 3 course meal for £25 each. However all vegetables were extra at £3.75 each including satue potatoes and after an hour and a half we only ate the poor starter. After prompting the waiter we finally finished the small portions two and a half hours after we sat down only to be confronted with a bill that made me fall off my chair! They had charged us £4 for water, £4 for a small fruit juice and £2.90 for half a lager. Then on top of this they had added 12.5% service charge. I paid. Had I not been with my Spanish friend I would have told them the food was poor, cold, small portioned and extremely expensive and the service rubbish plus I feel they robbed me. Beware -if a deal looks too good to be true it probably is and it certainly was here.
