A great experience! the food was delicious, with every plate a new palet of tastes and experiences. We had a few great alcoholfree drinks, very surprising and tasty starters and delicious t-bone steak and burgers. The service was great. We will def come back every time we visit Londen!

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.

    Overall, the food was very tasty and nicely presented. I felt the portion sizes were just right. One thing I did notice was that although the meals are well presented, I ordered a side of french fries which appeared to be the big standard frozen fries I can get from any take away chicken and chip shop so maybe having hand cut potato fries would fit in more with what you guys are trying to achieve.

    I felt the drink portion sizes were small and pricey considering they are non alcoholic. I also felt there weren’t enough sweeter drink options available. The desserts menu could be worked on as the selection wasn’t great. To conclude, the experience was personal, different and quirky.

    We chose this restaurant because we wanted to eat halal steak. We ordered two sirloin steaks medium rare. Unfortunately, one of the steaks was too thin and therefore too well done and dry. The staff, who was very friendly, apologized but we would have expected a little more, maybe a desert on the house or so. The rest of the food was very nice and also the cocktails were very tasty.

    Lovely fine dining with fantastic service and sumptuous food. The slow cooked lamb shank with harissa sauce and a bunch of trimmings was to die for, as was the pecan brownie with mango sorbet and ice cream!

    The iftar dining experience was excellent, how an iftar should be. The scheduling of the evening worked well and everything came out in good time and tasted delicious. The steak was cooked to perfection and the sauce and mushrooms went well with it. I have previously been to the great chase for Sunday roast and I would highly recommend this place. Great service great staff.
