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.

We met up with some friends we'd not seen for a while. We were very pleased with the food, service & the restaurant itself. We definitely plan to return.

Lovely place and food was lovely. Had a 2 for 1 voucher for the main meal. That was the reason for going as we didn’t know about the restaurant.
Staff were really lovely and had a chat in Italian with a few.
Will return.
Thanks for lovely evening. X

Very tasty steaks but presentation was a bit unusual. My wife and I both ordered medium rare ribeyes. When the food arrived at the table there was just one cast-iron skillet. The sliced portion initially looked small so we asked where the other steak was? It seems they were both in the same skillet and the idea was to take out your pieces and put them on your own plate. It turned out that there was plenty of food and it was very good.

Food was okay, my mum wanted the steak full done but it was tasteless & dry. There had some staff issues. One of member of staff was doing all the work and simply amazing but the rest was really just standing around.

My last visit to Rowleys was over 20 years ago when it was my go to business lunch restaurant.
I can say it was just as I remember, good classic food with excellent service

I went with a friend after receiving a gift voucher to enjoy a meal here. The steak was very good and the wine also. My only disappointment was that we were to pay a service charge despite the meal being a gift, which takes away from the concept of a gift.

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.

The food was very good and the ambiance was nice, except for a customer who spoke very loudly on his phone. The Service as good but they should have more waiters so guests don't have to wait too long.

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.
