The restaurant was amazing regarding the food we had. it came highly recommended from friends and did not disappoint. we came in at lunch time so it was fairly quiet, only us and two other couples on the downstairs floor and there were ample staff available. we got given a dessert menu and were then made to wait 20 mins before anyone came back to serve us. during this time you have three of your serving staff in our line of sight, standing by the entrance laughing, joking, messing about. one of them was dancing the other one was spinning around and looking at her nails and not one of them came over to take our dessert order. then when we wanted the bill, this was much the same and we asked the waiter that was taking the large tables order if we could get the bill. he went and spoke to the waitress who then looked at us and then just ignored it for another 5 mins until she eventually walked past to do something else and put the bill on our table in passing. a group of 30 odd people came in during this time also, and more staff appeared to take there orders but the same 3 were still standing there messing about. so in summary, the food was good but the service was horrendous. Ive had better in a busy, packed out harvester!! for the price you are charging for your steak, i expect the service to reflect this.

Service was very slow. Took 15 minutes before we were asked for our drink orders and further 15 minutes to get them. Also had to ask for a dessert menu after waiting a long time after we finished our main course. For the money spent I would expect more attentive service.

Steak could have been cooked a little better. It'd dried out a little around the edges, otherwise a great meal and overall experience.

Spent a great evening with friends in the bar- we had a booth. The cocktails were delicious, made by Tanda, who is amazing. We had some great bar snacks too.

Really impressed with our evening at Chop Bloc. Me and my boyfriend were treated like royalty as soon as we walked in. The service was impeccable. Food was out of this world! Safe to say I will be returning and have recommended to friends and colleagues already. Thank you for such a wonderful evening.

We loved our last dining experience with you. It was our anniversary and the table was in a great spot, the rose petals on the table were a lovely touch. Thank you to all the staff.

Great evening celebrating my husband's birthday. The children's menu was fabulous - I would have been very happy with their steak and chips myself!
