Pre/post Theatre
Situated in the home of the original Walls Butcher Shop and located on the very traditional Jermyn Street, Rowley's has kept the charm and history of the 19th century building alive. With the original tiles lining the walls and the soft lighting the restaurant offers a relaxed and comforting atmosphere. The British themed menu changes regularly but always includes the famous entrecote steak and secret herb butter sauce which is left to sizzle over a burner on the table and accompanied by unlimited french fries. Great for business lunches and pre theatre.

I’ve definitely had better and was disappointed considering its reputation. Service was very slow and inattentive. Food was very average. Won’t be rushing back.

Lovely restaurant I have been coming here since my parents brought me as a small child. You can’t beat the chicken supreme and unlimited chips!

6 of the group had chateaubriand and all enjoyed apart from one . I had the sea bream which was excellent. We enjoyed the evening and service was very good with waiters replenishing the unlimited fries .
Bill came to £57 per person for main course dessert and 3 bottles of wine between 7 of us . Don’t forget service charge is based on pre offer rate for chateaubiand. Desserts were gorgeous especially the chocolate bomb .

I enjoyed my meal at Rowley's - it's a very traditional restaurant with good service and good food. When I went on Sunday afternoon there were only a few people in so it was very quiet, but I'm sure the atmosphere heats up a bit when it's fuller.

A long-time favourite, and still enjoyable. Prawn and avocado generously stacked with good flavoured prawns, and could have done with more avocado. Entrecote OK but not spectacular, decent chips and bearnaise. Cheese plate fine. Berry Bros claret as reliable as ever. Just under £200 for two - so pricey but then I am getting old!

It was once a "traditional men's club", and needs an update of interior, to reflect modern times and that it is no longer for boys only.
Took 2 families there, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Fantastic steak. Great service by Chris. No complaints at all.

Worth the price. A good way to end a vacation in London.

Three people tried the chateaubriand, the prawn dish, and the cod. All were very good, and we were brought as many chips as we could eat. Service was prompt and friendly. Definitely recommend.

The bream entree with watercress was very nicely done. My husband’s lamb chops were somewhat gristly.What the menu said was a meat pie turned out to be a kind of shepherd’s pie with mashed potatoes and mince-I had expected a traditional English meat pie with a pastry crust and should have asked.
We had the creme brulee[no accents available] for dessert; it was good, but very small.

This was 3rd time I was to the restaurant in 1.5 years. Service was slow...took 30 minutes to get our food. Worst part the team did not deal with 4 noisy men drinking heavily and making everyone else feel uncomfortable. We moved ourselves to another table. The staff did nothing. Not good.

Good for business lunch. Food very good - but it was completely empty! Ok, we were early but even so, Thursday lunchtime in the West End? That said, well spaced tables, good service and really good food. No more expensive than anywhere else nearby so would use again.....

We had a great time. Rowley’s had a wide range of wines in 500ml options as well as bottles which was very welcome. Our steaks were served pre-sliced and served on a hot plate which they kept warm with a flame. My medium-rare was spot on but did start to move towards medium because of the hot plate.

The unlimited fries kept coming and the staff were not shy about offering more. V

A character building with charm. The food is good. On a previous visit I had their excellent steak but as I was going to the theatre I wanted something lighter. The lamb was great.

Food was really very nice and service was good. We visited on a Sunday lunchtime but told the kitchen would soon be closing so was surprised this information was not available at time of booking. After ordering a NA cocktail & paying the price I was disappointed to see it just be poured from a soda bottle & garnished with mint before serving. I’m sure a busy weeknight visit would be more bustling.

Went here for our anniversary. We had a deal on the steak. The steaks were perfect prepared and good value. Only trouble was there our cocktails (over £25 for two!) were watered down and our starter a chicken salad had what looked like tiny store bought (from Tesco etc) chicken strips added to it. We also got brought the wrong starter — fish instead of the salad. Overall it was okay, but the things that were wrong were just basics. Sort those things out and this would have been much better.

Although the food was good, we have been many times over the years so knew what to expect, we were disappointed we had booked in advance and there was no reserved table (there was availability but still disappointing). We felt the cost of the meal was quite expensive and felt awkward when we paid in cash and service had been added but the waiting staff asked if we wanted our change which was about £6/7 a little embarrassing when we had already given 12% of the bill.

Good quality food, something a bit different for a steak, fries very tasty. Both my husband & I had the prawn cocktail to start and it was full of prawns and very tasty. Good service and for central London not expensive.
