The Quality Chop House expands, building new cafe and extended shop
Historic Farringdon restaurant and shop The Quality Chop House is extending its retail offering and taking over the shop next door to create a new café.

Opening in two weeks’ time, the extended shop offering will include wine and food and books chosen by co-owner Daniel Morgenthau, Eater​ reported this week.

Next door, the new cafe will serve products from the shop, as well as Allpress coffee through the day and will offer papers and second hand books for customers to read.

The site was previously home to Noble Fine Liquor, the parent company of Clapton wine bar P Franco.

At present, the shop sells dishes served at The Quality Chop House to take home, including pies, terrines, mince on dripping toast, and confit potatoes. It also serves hot bacon sandwiches on Thursday and Friday mornings, as well as soups, salads, sausage rolls and sourdough or roast meat sandwiches for weekday lunches.

Fridge and pantry ingredients available in the shop currently include cheeses and rare breed meats, but the expanded offering will include a list of wines sourced by Erwan Gouiffes, the head of wine at the restaurant.

Reopened in 2012 The Quality Chop House has existed as a restaurant on Farringdon Road since 1869. It is part of Woodhead group, which also runs Fitzrovia restaurants Clipstone and Michelin-starred Portland.

It offers modern dishes based around premium British ingredients, and features an in-house butcher to provide high quality cuts of meat, which have received rave reviews from the capital’s most prominent restaurant critics. 

Since the end of last year, the retail side of the operation has been managed by chef Rich Bowman and Joanna Hughes.
