As the name suggests Butlers Wharf Chop House Restaurant is just the place if you're in the mood for something meaty – don't miss the grass-fed Speyside Angus X steaks. Elegant without being stuffy, it’s a relaxed riverside destination where provenance is key, with the likes of Select Butchery, H. Forman & Son smoked salmon, Carlingford Rocks Oysters and native lobster. Sit back and enjoy that famous view of Tower Bridge (from the terrace if you're lucky), you're in safe hands…

Used to come to the Chop house frequently but haven’t been in the last 2 years. Was surprised by the paired back menu. What we are though was good but be warned the wine is very expensive. (£50 for a normal price of £15 for a Chilean red).

Lovely location but food was a little disappointing. I had a lamb roast and it was overcooked and dry.
In fairness somebody else had beef roast which looked much nicer.

We booked for my son’s 18th birthday & received complimentary champagne & also a sorbet desert with happy birthday written in chocolate.
The food was excellent from starter to desert & the service was attentive but not intrusive.
Overall a great experience & I recommend booking.

Food was excellent as ever and we were lucky enough to get a table overlooking the river. Unfortunately the service was appalling. We would have died of thirst if I hadn’t liberated the wine from it’s bucket at the back of the restaurant and we waited 45 minutes for our coffee to be delivered, and would have been waiting still if I hadn’t lost my temper. I have been coming here for years but I won’t be rushing back....

Unfortunately our evening was over shadowed by the table behind us who clearly had no awareness of their surroundings or any other people in the restaurant deciding shouting and screaming over each other was normal at 8 p.m on a Wednesday..... If the desired effect was everybody's evening was all about them that was the case just in a negative way ....
Shame as the food was great as ever.

Waitor was non existent. Seamed very short staffed. Sat without drinks for a lot of our meal. Got the filet, medium rare and it was burnt. Just bad flavor all around for the price. Mushrooms were the highlight of the dinner.

One of our party did not get their first main choice. The rib-eye steak was juicy and flavoursome but very salty. Over priced White wines and impatient table service. Overall we felt it was quite pricey for the overall experience we had received. Great view of tower bridge

Good food and set menu is generally good value. The £8 supplement for the steak is quite a lot, think £5 would be more reasonable. Nice to be able to sit outside and service was good, free icecream and fizz for my birthday was a nice touch!

Very poor service. My roast pork when it finally arrived was a tiny piece of meat and what looked like a piece of leftover. I complained to the manager who agreed it was small but said it was a normal portion. He then brought me a couple of slices of beef and said there was no more pork. This would explain the tiny portion. He deducted my meal from the bill but then we got charged for 2 bottles of wine instead of 1. Our waiter was very poor and service was bad which considering the cost and having dined here numerous times was disappointing. The only bright thing was the professionalism from the manager who dealt with not just ours but another 3 complaints and looked totally embarrassed but acted in a way far better than the staff.

Been here before, a couple of times. Always found it to be a great venue and location. Food is good and service usually very good.
On this occasion, service was poor. They had a small function on, so the bar area was closed. A little disappointing that this wasn’t mentioned when booking as we were looking forward to a pre-lunch drink. Reception was chilly, no acknowledgement that we were surprised the bar was closed. Reception remained chilly. Staff were distinctly inattentive for the majority of our lunch. This experience has put me off rushing back now.

We booked the restaurant for our friends birthdays and the staff made them feel really special saying happy birthday to them upon arrival and then singing happy birthday to them at the table. Overall a really lovely night. Thanks to the staff who made the night that little bit more special for us.

Horrible!!! Avoid!!! Service is lousy and the food is tasteless, cold, and inedible. Wish this were an exaggeration. We told the waiters, the general manager, etc. We paid only for the wine that we drank while waiting FOREVER to get any food!!! There are much better restaurants that actually serve food and drink, like a restaurant, along the River.

The chophouse is a wonderful venue set beside the River Thames, whilst you gaze at Tower Bridge. Unfortunately the food didn’t match up to the wonderful setting and I would highly recommend you don’t choose the butchers steak, which is actually a piece of flank which is far too tough to be served at such a classy restaurant.

That said, the staff were really lovely and in fact took the steak off my bill even though I didn’t ask them to, so definitely worth a visit but avoid the butchers steak!

Dinner for 2, on the Evening Standard Menu.

Positives: Food, location (waiting for an outside table is worth it), value for money
Negatives: Being treated like a 2nd class citizen for ordering off the Evening Standard Menu

Conclusion: I removed the service charge, explaining my concerns to the waiter in question. He apologized and took it on board. I would return with faith this was a one off.

Four of us at the table having three courses for an evening meal, mid-week. Three ordered steak (flank, medium rare) for the main dish. Two were good, but mine was tough and I had to send it back and had a curry instead. Remaining courses and wine (Rose Pinot Noir) were fine. They did not charge for one main meal, which was kind. Service is good but not engaging. Not rushed to leave, so the 'two hour rule' was not applied in our case. Atmosphere is good, but on the noisy side, so for someone whose hearing is not great in crowds, listening to the person on the other side of the table was challenging at times.

We had to wait for everything - waiting for our seats was totally understandable, but after we were seated, everything took too long, even though it was after 8pm on Wednesday. Water - 15 mins, Food - more than an hour, Additional order - didn't come out until we told three different waiters for more than 3 times. And the food was way below average. Steak was cold and overcooked (we ordered Medium but it was way over well-done), pork chops were too salty. The most frustrating thing was that every time we needed something, we had to ask at least twice to get it. Good location and view was great, and had reasonable price compared to other restaurants nearby, but I'd rather eat elsewhere than wait more than an hour only to get low quality food.

Just eaten tonight with a friend , venue is great right on the Thames the staff are great as was the service
Food average smoked salmon starter fine good size not much can go wrong with that
Grilled baby chicken breast was dry and over cooked the chicken must have been already cooked then put on bbq to reheat and colour, green sauce with chicken was very good , Green beans and mash sides all good
Dessert was lemon tart, pastry much too thick , bases probably bought in and filled, filling was too sweet classic lemon tart should be sharp, all served with a very sweet coulis and for some strange reason and over power salty tasty after
Have to say staff where very good and 3 courses plus drinks and including service £50 a head in the city actually not bad value but food is average

Food was good but service incredibly slow. The waiter advised that they were under staffed and he was training others.

We were there for nearly 30 minutes before drinks were served and waited almost an hour for cold starters.

When the food arrived it was good and I love that part of the river so ambience perfect.

Just a shame we had to wait so long and it did feel like we were inconveniencing the waiter when we asked him how much longer!

Gosh this place is slow! The drinks we ordered when we were given the menus finally arrived after the starters. We'd been sat there over an hour before the main course arrived. No one came to ask if we wanted more drinks and they asked if we wanted desserts after another hour. The room was half full - it'd hate to think how long you have to wait to eat when they're busy. The staff were very friendly and the food was wonderful but I'm not sure about a second visit.

This was a wonderful discovery. It is situated right on the River Thames, with wonderful views of Tower Bridge. We wanted to celebrate a birthday with the family and this was perfect. I can't fault this restaurant. For those who arrived early, there was a guitarist to listen too. Our coats were hung in a cloakroom and we had a lovely round table for the nine of us, which made it much easier to speak to everyone than being on a long table. The food was really tasty and the portions were just right. All the staff were so lovely.
There is a good choice on the menu. My pea and mint soup was served hot as I requested and my sea bream was perfectly cooked.
It's about a ten minute walk to London Bridge Station. It was nice to walk after the meal, even though it was raining.
