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
2 hands-on hours cutting a meat of your choice with our butchers, followed by a 3 course set lunch or dinner in The Quality Chop House restaurant. Cost: £165 

How it works
Unlike other classes, ours explore our whole carcass approach to butchery. You will learn the principles of this art and get a feel for all the different cuts of the beast. Classes are for up to 8 students and are based around lamb, pork or beef.

You'll learn about the carcass, the species you're working with, different rearing methods and how these influence the character and flavour of the meat, and how to assess quality when buying.  We'll show you how to break the carcass into the main primal cuts and then into smaller pieces ready for cooking. 

The class ends with a 3 course meal in our next door restaurant, based around the meat that you have worked on. If you are attending the class alone, you may like to invite a friend to join you for the meal afterwards. As a parting gift you'll be given the cuts that you've prepared to take home.

BREAD MAKING CLASSES
Learn how to make 3 types of bread, and then have a 3 course lunch in The Quality Chop House restaurant. Timings: 11.00 - 16.30  Cost: £110

How it works
You’ll you will learn how to shape, prove and bake a country sourdough loaf, a Parker House roll and a rye bread, all made using beautiful rare-breed and organic grains, stone-milled by Gilchester Organics in Northamptonshire. 

You'll learn techniques for preparing the breads, weighing out and mixing the ingredients. You'll then have a 3 course lunch in The Quality Chop House Restaurant with a menu that showcases the breads you've made. After lunch you will return to the classroom to shape the breads and bake the rolls. 

You'll leave with the hot parker house rolls, the rye loaf in a tin, and country loaf in a banetton ready for you to bake in your own oven the following day.
