Good but not great. Pre theatre menu was ok. Food good. Next time I eat here I'll go for the carvery.

With a carvery, pre-theatre menu and a la carte offering, the Carvery and Grill, on the iconic Strand, serves delicious, traditional British favourites. Located within the grand Strand Palace Hotel, this popular restaurant has been serving theatre-goers, tourists and local regulars for many tears.

Set in contemporary surroundings, the Carvery and Grill serves an array of fresh salads and succulent meats from the buffet, as well as sublimely cooked classics from the a la carte menu. The Carvery and Grill offers prime cuts of lamb, beef and chicken, and regularly updates its menu to spotlight contemporary flavours such as the tasty stone bass fillet, served with peas and an endive salad.

The superb international wine list at the Carvery and Grill presents balanced, sophisticated options, while the dessert menu features traditional favourites. Some come with a twist, such as the beetroot and chocolate brownies served with poached pear and stracciatella ice cream. Of course, there is also a superb selection of British hard, soft and blue cheeses.

In the heart of Covent Garden, the Carvery and Grill is just a short stroll from Charing Cross, Waterloo, Covent Garden, Temple and Embankment.

    It was a bad experience. The food was cold, the beef was tough. The apple crumble was not a bit like the crumble I would make. It was too powdery

  • (**** 21 November 2018 by Clari from London

    We used to go regularly to the Strand Palace Carvery but this was a disappointing return. Choice of two roasts - beef or turkey breast roll - not even a proper whole turkey- and very poor selection of vegetables. The starter salads - again an anaemic poor selection with no imagination, smoked salmon but only one cold meat (rather dry salami). And we were not even told you can return for seconds. Not that we wanted to. Desserts were apple & blackberry crumble (which my mum said was nice) or ice cream & I think one other choice. But 3 courses cost £5 more.
    There is no atmosphere. When we went having booked, there was a group of 50 expected (!!) - I assume a tour group, so we were escorted to a table by the entrance where they would all troop past.
    Waitress was over-intrusive, keeping asking how things were and interrupting conversation several times mid-meal to ask. I appreciate her asking once or twice but so often! And this for a carvery buffet! She did bring water and mustard when asked and clearly meant well.
    However, food disappointing and perfunctory. Not worth the cost. Will not return. Rather sad.

    Disappointed. Carvery fare very ordinary. Meat was dry and over cooked. Service was good

    Nice friendly staff and we was seated in the little bay just inside doorway. The food was good and tasty. Downside's, I object to having 12.5 % gratuities added automatically and found paying £11 for a pint of shandy very over priced.

    Very easy to book on line Staff were very friendly and showed us to our table with no waiting
    The only downside to the dining experience was the gravy was very watery
    Easy relaxed atmosphere restaurant and fairly priced
