At The Quality Chop House restaurant we use the best produce we can find in Britain: meat sourced whole-carcass from smalls farms and butchered on-site; dishes made with the best the season had to offer. The shop is an extension of this vision. 

Our Food Shop sells chef cooked dishes that feature on the restaurant menu along with our own sourdough bread, cakes, sweet treats, pork & family pies, considerately sourced cheeses, charcuterie, fruit & veg and other daily staples.

We are very lucky to have Noble Fine Liquor right next door.  They stock a wonderful range of 'authentic, natural wines from the greatest small winemakers'.

We hope to see you soon. 

Our Meat

We work directly with 5 farms, small-scale producers in Yorkshire, Galloway, Suffolk, Hereford and Leicestershire.  We butcher all of the animals on-site, and then age them appropriately in our cold room.

The full carcass approach allows lots of flexibility in terms of cuts. Our head butchers love to chat about old and new cuts, and to share ideas about what to do with them. If you want a specific cut please ask, and chances are we can cut or have it ready for your next visit.

BEEF: Aged for at least 28 days.  Pasture-raised. Breeds vary but are all beef breeds with no dairy crosses.  Diet and rearing are vital for the impact they have on flavour. Veal is rose from dairy breeds, Ayrshire and dairy Short Horn.  We occasionally have beef over 30-months old. 

LAMB: All outdoor-raised, and aged for 1 week.  

HOGGET / MUTTON: aged for 2 weeks.

PORK: All free-range rare breeds and cross-breeds.

CHICKEN: Proper free-range breeds, hardy enough to have roamed for 75 days. Dry-plucked and game-hung for 1 week.

Our Shop

We offer a selection of the dishes that we serve in the restaurant for you to enjoy at home.  These include family pies, terrines, mince on dripping toast and our legendary confit potatoes. We also have plenty of day-to-day provisions such as bread, cheese, milk, eggs, and beautiful seasonal fruit and veg.

On Thursday and Friday mornings we serve hot bacon sandwiches in pillowy fat-enriched rolls, along with Workshop filter coffee.  For weekday lunches we make soups, salads, sausage rolls, and sourdough bread sandwiches, alongside our hearty hot roast meat sandwiches.

We bake our own breads; white and brown sourdough, and rye loaves. Our pastry chef always has a range of cakes, tarts, brownies, biscuits and chocolates freshly baked for you.

We are happy to make anything to order, and we also offer off-site catering. We would love to discuss your requirements, whether for a work event, dinner party or other special occasion.  Pre-orders usually require 72-hours notice.

We have a range of hampers which make ideal presents for your favourite foodie. Just ask and we can make these up to your desired specification and budget.

We also sell a small range of homewares, such as Jane Sarr crockery, London Honey Co bees wax candles, Spanish beer glasses, Louise Sheeran prints, and we are the only UK stockist of Hedley & Bennet aprons.

BUTCHERY CLASSES
We run 2 types of class: 1) classes designed to give you an in-depth understanding of one animal; and 2) classes that will teach you a range of practical skills with different animals.

Uniquely our classes are led by chef-butchers. They’ll teach you the art of butchery, share their detailed knowledge of different cuts, and share their secrets on how best to prepare and cook them.

Both types of class end with an informal, convivial sharing-style meal prepared by our chefs.  Please note that seating is on high stools.  Unfortunately it is not possible for guests to join you for this.

Class size: up to 8 pupils
Class start time: 6.30pm
Class duration: 2 hours (followed by a meal)
Cost: £165

1) BEEF or LAMB or PORK BUTCHERY CLASSES
Learn the art of butchery and meat preparation for one particular animal, and then enjoy our exceptional quality meat at a meal cooked by our chefs.

You’ll be greeted by a whole lamb, a whole pig, or a side of beef (depending on your choice of class) along with a welcome drink and snack.

In the first half of the class, you’ll learn about different breeds, the species you're working with, how different rearing methods influence character and flavour, and how to assess quality when buying meat.  Our butchers will show you where each cut sits in the animal, and demonstrate how the animal is broken down into its primal cuts.

The second half of the class is more hands-on, and you’ll get stuck into cutting, de-boning, and tying to prepare the different cuts.

The class ends with a convivial, informal shared 3 course set meal, based around the meat that you have worked on.  As a parting gift you'll be given a selection of cuts to take home.

2) BUTCHERY SKILLS CLASSES
Learn a range of butchery and meat preparation techniques for different animals, to improve your skills as a home cook.  Then enjoy our exceptional quality meat at a meal cooked by our chefs.

You’ll be greeted with a welcome drink, snack, and a short introduction to butchery, breeds, and how to assess quality when buying meat.

You’ll then jump straight into a hands-on and highly practical class.  We’ll teach you how to: sharpen a knife; joint a chicken; stuff and roll chicken legs; prepare a stock; French-trim a rack of lamb; and how to bone, roll, stuff and tie a show-stopping Porchetta. You’ll take home the cuts that you’ve worked on, along with guidance and recipes on how to cook them at home.

The class ends with a convivial, informal shared 3 course set meal.

Festive Hampers

We have created some particularly handsome hampers for the festive season this year. They are the ultimate treat to leave under the tree for anyone who enjoys the most delicious things in life, or a great thank you gift for someone having you to stay.

The Quality Chop House restaurant uses the best produce head chef Shaun Searley can find in Britain, and the Shop next door is an extension of this vision. The hampers are packed with favourites from the restaurant, such as Shaun’s legendary confit potatoes and cod’s roe, as well as lots of in house Christmas classics such as mince pies bejewelled with clementine slices, boozy Christmas puddings, cranberry sauce, stuffing spices, duck fat and a brilliant curry paste great for revitalising turkey leftovers.
