Quality chop house

I liked this place and more importantly so did Noah. I was very taken with the original woodwork, tiling etc and the glimpse into the past it allowed. 
The food was maybe not as good as it could have been if we had ordered differently.
HI's chop and a glass was a disappointment as the chop had a lot of fat and not much meat, although it looked very fine.
The fried fish with aioli was good for Noah if a bit greasy and the devilled pig skin was a fancy version of crackling.
The standout was the brisket with stinking bishop and tomatoes. This I could have eaten plates of. The other surprise was the black cherry Eton mess with cocoa nibs. A completely new version and very successful.
I would like to go back and sample the menu more widely.
