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.

    Nice atmosphere, good service and menu options. I had the sirloin steak which was lovely. My wifes lamb rack had too much fat on it though. Good dry bar and a cool range of rare tea's. A bit expensive for what you get.

    Really excellent Sunday roast which I can heartily recommend. The beef is superb, a large portion size as well. Trimmings also very tasty. All food halal, with a very pleasant prayer area within the restaurant's courtyard. Service is pleasant and attentive and staff are well informed. Other brunch choices are also worth trying out - especially the French toast with poached pear. Fine selection of teas as well.

    We were a group of four and all enjoyed our food. Steak, chicken buttermilk burger, beef burger, all were really nice.

    Booked a table online after my brother suggested it. Missed a call from the owner to just confirm booking so I called back to confirm. Upon arrival (20minearly!) we were made to feel really welcome and given plenty of time to peruse the menu. Service and food was of pristine quality and will definitely recommend. My date and I really enjoyed an evening to remember
