Good. Quiet table.Excellent food and lovely staff. Old-world decor and . long culinary history which is pleasant compared to all the modern bistros springing up looking virtually the same.

Simpson's is a lovely restaurant and bar and the dining room is elegant complemented by the silver carving trolly. The roast beef was excellent and the horseradish sauce, but the roast potatoes were not very crisp. Very enjoyable but too expensive to become a regular lunching pad.
