The Great Chase has a look that blends the antique and the modern, with rustic touches and wood block tables. Using the finest meats, seasonal game, seafood, and vegetables, contemporary twists are added to traditional favourites.

Head chef Radek Nitkowski (formerly of Dean Street Town House and Cambridge street Kitchen) brings fine food and excellent eating to unpretentious surroundings. With dishes like the free-range chicken breast with asparagus, croquettes and spicy miso aioli, or the mozzarella, heritage tomato, Ogliarola olive oil and pistachio, the compact Great Chase menu shows off a strong British core with pan-global influences, summing up the essence of multicultural London.

The pedigree of the kitchen at Great Chase London is backed up by a non-alcoholic bar that serves an excellent collection of fine teas. Cordial alchemist and sommelier William Wragg spins his magic to create some surprisingly punchy alcohol-free concoctions. The Tayberry Spritz, made with a Tayberry and Rose cordial (courtesy of the Gimlet bar, and made using ingredients from their own garden) and the Bees Knees Fizz, made with black pepper and lavender vinegar mist are particular favourites.

Find The Great Chase Clerkenwell a 6-minute walk from Angel Tube Station.

    A hidden treasure. The staff are wonderful , have been there a few times and they are always there to offer advice . It is really great to have a restaurant that does not serve alcohol , There are lots of great cocktails and an amazing selection of teas to choose from.
    It has a really nice atmosphere.
    One dish if I had to choose is the sweet potato gnocchi which is great.
    Give it a try you will not be disappointed .

    We had a lovely dining experience at The Great Chase before Christmas. Customer service is excellent and started as soon as we walked through the door with a smile and chat. We were led to the back where we were able to see into the kitchen. The restaurant is small and cosy with ambient lighting that gives it a private feel. Our drinks were served with almond snacks while we waited to order our meal. We were happy to wait as it was a busy evening. We ordered steak, salmon and chicken croquets, the steak was a little colder than expected but it was taken back and replaced within minutes. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff which is always an indicator that customer service is paramount.
    Needless to say the food was delicious and cooked to perfection.

    I wanted to try one of their teas with my meal but my sister isn't a tea drinker and declined but was converted after a chat with the lovely gentleman who also happened to be the tea expert who told us the story behind the tea and it's origins. What a treat!
    The tea arrived in individual pots and was topped up so we enjoyed two cups instead of one. My sister's was complimentary which was a lovely gesture.
    Unfortunately we didn't have room for dessert but will be back to sample those and the brunch menu soon.

    Overall, a great fine dining experience in a fully halal environment. Well done for daring to be different and succeeding at it.

    A little hidden gem. The varieties of teas and non-alcohol cactails are delightful, and they are very nicely presented with a great care by waiting staff. Minor thing was the food choice was a bit limited, but considering the size of the restaurant, we cannot complain.

    The food was absolutely lovely, I had the starter of buttermilk chicken, would love to see it as a main as it was delicious. We had the main of Salmon Fillet and Chicken breast, they were both delicious. The desserts need a bit of work,
