In Chimes
What's Been Said...........
"Not a bad bolt hole"- this "friendly" Pimlico stalwart offers a "cheap" and "simple" formula focussed on "filling traditional pies and cider"
Harden's 2008 survey - Commended
"Chimes is just the place to take overseas friends to lunch. It's reasonably central, it's inexpensive, and Britain can be proud of the food."
Time Out Guide to Eating and Drinking in London.
"Chimes is a cider and wine bar and restaurant in the heart of SW1 and has all the casual charm of a French bistro with the warmth, flavours and comforting textures of great British food."
'A List' - Barbara Davies. The Daily Mirror
"Chimes is a very woody sort of restaurant with wooden floor, tables, chairs and bar. It is decorated with old black and white photographs of unsmiling bearded men, ostentatiously real, standing inelegantly next to huge sacks of apples. These photographs are appropriate to its wine list which consists predominantly of 'Wines from the Apple, Pear and Country' i.e. cider(with some jolly good rough ciders), perry and those cutsie killers, country wines - gooseberry, elderflower, damson and so forth ........"
'Table Talk' - Craig Brown. The Sunday Times
"For my money the starters are this restaurant's strongest suit. The Black Pudding (a joy usually confined to hotel breakfasts) comes laced in creamy stilton ............
Main Courses ..... try out a cross section of the traditional pies which are Chimes' centrepiece. If you adore pastry then this is the place for you ............"
'Food and Drink' - Charles Kennedy. The Sunday Times.
