Excellent meal, including the non alcoholic cocktails and infused tea. Very attentive service. Ideal for a pre theatre dinner.

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.

    I can’t praise this restaurant enough.
    Visited for dinner and then returned for brunch after such an excellent meal.

    We had a warm welcome from the front of house staff, one of whom had seen one had a dairy allergy on the booking so had marked up a menu with which dishes were dairy free and which could be adjusted!

    Despite a pre-theatre sitting getting busy quite quickly both members were attentive and friendly, with very good menu knowledge.
    For a London fine dining experience of quality food with clearly knowledgable recipe creation and cooking, we found it actually very affordable having 2 dinner courses for £46.

    The dry bar makes an excellent addition, with plenty of choice of interesting drinks rather than the usual fruit juices and fizzy beverages most alcohol free options comprise of.
    Over the visits we tried the Cherry Amour, Pineapple Bay, Palamino and Gardener’s Tonic - all of which exceeded expectations :-)

    I look forward to returning for food, drinks and atmosphere!

    Once we got over the shock of "no alcohol" we settled in. The inventive 'cocktails' were excellent ( esp. Gardeners tonic and the cucumber / rose' ). The restaurant felt 'new' …. as in they were starting to get into their stride but hadn't quite cracked "seamless delivery" yet. However, we really enjoyed the food ( sort of European / North African fusion) and the lamb chops and spiced chicken breast were a delight. Puddings were fine ….. and the range of specialist TEAS was outstanding. We were surprised ….. but very happy when we left.

    This restuarnt is AMAZING! The whole vibe from when you walk in to the freindly team, to the food and just the atmosphere itself. The restuarant has a lovely arabian nights boutique feel to it, with even a outside prayer area which looks really pretty as well as catering for people's needs which i think gives a really personal feel to the thought that has gone in to making the restuarant suitable for everyone along with it being halal and alcohol free. The food is AMAZING, we had the pulled beef crouqets and the beef buger and chicken burger, which were just out of this world, i have never known buttermilk chicken to be soo tasty and juicy, both burgers were huge and so good that you couldnt bare to leave a bite! I must also reccomend the wasabi mayo which was also amazing and the homemade BBQ suace...just perfect! and that was just the food....The cocktails were also incredible and so refreshing, the flavour combinations really worked and complimented eachother, you could tell a lot of time and effort had gone into perfecting the flavours. The service was also astounding as the staff reccomended their favourites from the menu and gave details on how they came to the final producuts which i think was a really nice added touch. This place is a gem to find and will most definitely be a new spot of ours.
