We went for a meal last weekend and the food was tasty but a bit slow with our order. A busy place but well worth the wait. Staff could smile a bit more but I got the sense that it was a busy evening and they were a bit run off their feet Would definitely eat here again and would... More

Both the chorizo starter and T-bones steaks were chargrilled beyond pleasant. The steak was as ordered in the middle, but it should not be necessary to carve the surface off to avoid burnt bits. Our waiter was inexperienced and lacked knowledge of the menu and allergens, “Bread has gluten in it, doesn’t it?” He returned to ask about our steaks... More

Having visited the place for years I was disappointed. Portion size has shrunk significantly. I had the fish and chips and there was more batter than fish. The chicken which we liked was been taken off the menu. The new staff were not friendly. Past its prime

If you like excellent steak then this is the place for you. The restaurant is cosy and comfortable, the design is very traditional and creative. Service and food are of a brilliant standard. Highly recommended

Had a terrific meal at the Chop & Ale House. Great steak but my wife had to send her's back. No problem in replacing it. Felt slightly overpriced for the size of the place

Slightly quirky place this and feels like it's stuck in the past in some ways, however the food is top notch and the staff are always friendly.

This place is just marvellous! The steaks were to die for, the decor and energy of the place very relaxed and very friendly. The waiters were just amazing... the wine was excellent. I recommend the House Pinotage... a fine wine at a not so fine price! We ate like kings and the bill was low... If you are in the... More

Having previously made the mistake of turning up at peak business hours on a Sunday and being told it was a 2.5 hour wait (you can't book tables in advance) we visited the Chop & Ale House at around 4.30 in the afternoon, we managed to get a table straight away. My advice would be to turn up early to... More

I ordered the T bone steak medium rare and it was cooked to perfection. The home made chips are also fantastic. A few negatives are that you can't book and have to sit and wait for a table. The restaurant is very small as was my table which was unsteady. I'd say the chop and ale is good for steak... More

Visited the Chop and Ale house after an absence of a number of years, due to a previous bad experience. We should have stayed away. Having eaten in both the Restaurant, and the Chop and Ale House, I have a benchmark. The Chop and Ale is resting on its laurels and really needs a reality check. One of the few... More
