    Beef wellington was sublime. Roast perfect as always. Ambience and service first class. A memorable and very British experience for our guests from Portugal. Thank you!

    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.

    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.
