The Quality Chop House is a building of two parts: one half wine bar and wine shop, the other half dining room. The building has been called The Quality Chop House since 1869, although several different businesses have been run under the name, and the current owners are working to keep the original spirit alive. With all the original fixtures and nice touches like vintage plates and cutlery, the atmosphere of the Grade-II listed building is one of quiet elegance. It is unimposing and unpretentious, but what you’re offered once you enter this humble space is nothing short of exquisite.
Last week we got informed that my husband had won tickets to a ghost tour of Fleet Street in London on Saturday, so we had to make a quick decision whether to go, and accept the cost of travelling up to London, or give the tour a miss. Never ones to pass up a freebie, we decided to jump on the train and make a day of it, even if the tickets and lunch out would cost a lot more than tickets for the tour would have. Oh well!
