1st class environment, service and quality of food. Wonderful icon of London restaurant scene. Pricey but it is part of the Savoy so expected.

One of London’s most historic and best loved culinary institutions, Simpson’s in the Strand brings classic British cuisine up to date. Since it first opened as a chess club and coffee house in 1828, Simpson’s has provided an elegant backdrop to historical meetings, literary debates and momentous meals of all kinds, and is now marking itself out as one of the city’s landmark restaurants.

Crafted by Adrian Martin, Simpson’s Master Cook, The Simpson’s on the Strand menu showcases the finest seasonal ingredients and quality produce of the British Isles. The menu features the likes of traditional duck and pork terrine pie and griddled prawns alongside Simpson’s signatures such as sea trout fillet, Tongue-in-cheek or 28 day dry aged roast rib of Scottish beef traditionally served from the restaurant’s carving trolleys.

    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.

    As always, one is taken back to the Gilded Age when dining at Simpson’s. A family favourite for many years, it is always a pleasure with impeccable staff, ambience and food.

    The whole experience was superb, ambience, environment, service and of course the food and wine which were consistently delicious. We were celebrating a special occasion and expected excellence from Simpsons but what we experienced went beyond our expectations and made the day very special. Thankyou.

    Everything as usual was perfect, the staff are friendly, professional and helpful. The food is amazing (especially the beef, served from the trolley), and the portions are a really good size for fine dining, my favourite place for a special evening.

    Warm friendly welcome. Escorted to our box. Lovely ambience and decor. The waiters were attentive but discreet. 2 people had the beef, served at the table with finesse. It was very fresh and tasty and been from Yorkshire the puddings were amazing. Well done chef! 1 person had fish and chips with fresh tartar sauce. The chips were crunchy on the outside and soft inside. The fish was fresh and cooked with a crispy batter. I had the beef Wellington, delicious, beautifully cooked and presented. Although full to burst desserts had to be had! One Rumbaba and one ice cream am enjoyed and to be recommended. Coffee was a wonderful end to a lovely meal.

    Both I and my lunch companion thoroughly enjoyed a leisurely meal being cosseted by the delightful staff at Simpsons. The excellent choices offered to guests via the menu and the wine list enabled us to select and enjoy our meals. I was surprised but delighted to have the dessert I had ordered and only partially eaten (a rumbaba with spiced rum rather than the Navy rum I had expected) - replaced by a wonderful Pavlova. The welcome, service throughout and ambience were perfect.

    As a chess historian I love Simpsons as a venue. Drinks in the lounge a pleasure. Service throughout was exemplary. Having regard to the prices charged and the reputation, the standard of the cooking was disappointing. English asparagus was on the menu, what I got was mostly what I regard as German asparagus, thick white stems that are tasteless. It tasted only of the gloop that came with it. All you need for proper English asparagus is butter. My partner ordered scallops. They arrived on shells, on what looked like seaweed but two scallops was hardly a dish.Two small slices of Beef Wellington were disappointing, price £42, the beef was OK, the pastry soggy, looked and tasted as if it had been made the day before. Baked Alaska tasted of burnt meringue after it had been set on fire with whisky. .
