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.

    Fantastic knowledge and service from this restaurant. Highly recommend this place for fine dining. The Cornflakes Ice-cream was divine. The wide range of non-alcoholic cocktails were also great. Can't wait to go back.

    Had an excellent pre ballet dinner here, the service was friendly and warm, the food was inventive, interesting and freshly cooked. The mock cocktails were an education and delicious and overall it was a delightful meal served with honesty and passion, would definitely recommend.

    The restaurant was smaller than I expected. However, the service and food was fantastic! Also, the restaurants size made the atmosphere cosey and enjoyable. We will be going back again!

    Loved the Sunday roast. The lamb was so tender that the meat easily fell off the bone. It is halal and serves unique non-alcoholic beverages.

    Excellent Sunday Roast, great portion sizes, well cooked, halal meat. Beef was a superb choice. Service was good, we were seated in a relatively spacious table area and enjoyed the overall ambience. Prayer area available as well.

    Love the food and ambience. Excellent and friendly service too!

  • ((((( 21 December 2018 by Sandy from London

    Our food was delicious. The service was great. And the fact that you can drink as much as you want without worrying - because there is no alcohol served - is a great, unique selling point!
    Portions were very generous - we didn't have a starter as we really fancied the crumble for dessert and we were not disappointed! The chicken dish I had was so tasty yet so different - there was a cold chestnut cream married perfectly with the hot chicken and mushrooms. It was a most unusual combination - hot & cold with different flavours and textures - but it worked perfectly. My husband had the lamb and loved it, too.
    The crumble is, so we were told, their "signature" dish and the additions change according to the season - as this was winter time, we had cranberries with apple & pear. Honestly, it was one of the best crumbles we've tasted. And it certainly was freshly made - it was 100% like a "homemade" crumble.
    We can't wait to go back!

    We had the pre theatre menu before going to see Swan Lake at Sadlers Wells. It was a great start to a wonderful experience. The restaurant is alcohol free and we really enjoyed the aperitifs - so refreshing- didn’t miss wine at all. The food was lovely served with a friendly smile and it was very good value (an uncommon occurrence in London!)
