Mr Thomas’s Chop House

Stepping into Mr Thomas’s Chop House is akin to entering a museum’s mock-Victorian street scene. Once again burnished tiles gleam, here in fine hues of green, alongside deeply polished wood and a tiled floor. The late 19th Century purple and coral light fittings lend an air of sophisticated gravitas to the dining room, whilst the muted globe lighting which bookends the bar is reminiscent of the art deco-styled ballroom in The Shining. Nursing a pint of Black Sheep’s Best Bitter, the interested drinker can also view the range of contemporary art that currently adorns the walls, in striking contrast to the tiled background. Little wonder the Duke of Milan and King of Naples were so taken with the place when they visited in 2007.
