Sam's Chop House information
Arguably the city's top gastropub, Sam's is a Victorian classic that serves dishes straight out of a Dickens novel. The highlight is the crispy corned beef hash cake, which is salt-cured for 10 days on the premises. 'There is no such passion in human nature as the passion for gravy among commercial gentlemen', declared Mrs Todgers in Martin Chuzzlewit ; she would certainly approve of Sam's. The owners also run Mr Thomas' Chop House.
