Not really happy to give the Chophouse a negative report as I have always given it a big thumbs up in the past.
On this occasion when I booked a table for my family whom I had given it a really possitive glowing report to all that were about to dine, so I was really upset that a number in the party did not enjoy the experience that I had previously enjoyed.
The starters were mostly ok apart from the fishcakes (which had a lot of bones) The pate was fine but side salad was not fresh and the French onion soup was returned untouched.
Now to the mains.
The pork chops were cremated on the top/ The fish was full of bones and stodgy(3 people had it and agreed)
One of the fish dishes was replaced by a burger of sort which was also cremated as was the other one served. The mac,n, cheese was bland and the chips were bland/limp and not the usual ones normally served in the Chophouse.
The couple of sweets we had were the best part of the meal and the service was of the usual high standard we have come to expect from Steven and the team.
I suggest a word to the chef regarding the drop in standards could be required as the food was not cooked to the usal high standard I have come to accept.
Hope this is helpful as it is meant to be and not to be taken the wrong way as it does not need all that many tweeks to bring it back to 4/5 stars again.
