Our Cafe and Shop opened next door to our iconic sister restaurant on the Farringdon Road in 2013.

The shop and butcher is open 7 days a week from 9am to 6pm (10am on Sundays). The shelves and fridges are stocked with QCH classics, carefully-sourced products from like-minded suppliers and a vast array of wines, beers and spirits curated by our colleagues at Quality Wines. In the corner of the shop you will find our butcher working away on cuts for customers or our next door restaurant – he is always up for a chat and a special request!

On weekday lunches, The QCH Cafe is open from midday to 2.15pm. We aim to be an informal, delicious and approachable lunch spot, inspired by the cafes of yore. You can find out more about our menu and how to book below.

We hope to see you soon.

Our Cafe

The Cafe is open for lunch only Monday to Friday.

The menu is a labour of love devised by our Executive Chef Shaun Searley with our Shop Head Chef Charlotte van Holthe. QCH classics feature heavily (you will find our pork pies and also, here only, our infamous mince on toast) alongside robust and substantial lunch plates.

We take reservations in the cafe at lunch. We may ask for your table back after 1 hour but that will be more than ample time to enjoy our menu.

Our Shop

We have had a shop and butchers here since 2013 (the year after we reopened The Quality Chop House next door)

Our whole carcass butchery is led by our wonderful head butcher Richard Bowman, who is always delighted to have a chat about anything specific you might be looking for.

The rest of the shop is devoted to products we love – either made by us (it’s the only place to find our iconic confit potatoes to take home) or from suppliers we love, from fresh fruit and vegetables to ready-to-eat ideas for dinner that night.

We are very lucky to have a wonderful selection of over 100 wines curated for our shelves by our colleagues at Quality Wines all available to purchase for takeaway (or sit down and have them with lunch!)
