Set in a gorgeous Grade II-listed Georgian villa, the decor is bright and modern but respects the building’s elegance and heritage.

The food, too, respects classical tradition, but is a contemporary take on British cuisine - combining influences from around the world in dishes based on fabulous impeccably sourced seasonal ingredients.

Enjoy an aperitif in one of the elegant lounges in the older part of the building before moving on to the sleek restaurant with its blonde wood beams, exposed stone walls and bi-fold doors opening onto the garden.

The knowledge and experience of Head Chef Luke Tipping shows through in the assured, confident nature of the cooking – and he has the skill to know when to hold back. Dishes are balanced and pure, with subtle modern touches and a pleasing clarity of flavour; be sure to try the signature tapenade bread rolls and delicious soufflés.

Service is enthusiastic and brims with personality.

    Excellent service and dining experience. It was a very quiet Wednesday lunchtime so staff were attentive , courteous and knowledgeable. The food was an explosion of flavours and beautifully presented.

    A meal at Simpsons is always a delightful occasion. The food this time was beautifully presented and beautifully cooked/prepared. Service was attentive but not intrusive and the dining room with view of the garden is a pleasant place to be. One small caveat: when it gets busy, the hard surfaces mean the noise level rises noticeably, although on this occasion not enough to hamper conversation on our table. We enjoyed our lunch immensely.

    Quite mixed experience at Simpsons to be honest. For the price you pay for food and drink I'd have expected a better service. On 3 occasions in quick succession things were wrong. Also I really don't understand why there isn't more options for vegetarians and the price and quantity of vegetarian dishes compared to meat options in stark. I mean how do you compare a plate of 3 pieces of asparagus and baby gem lettuce and sauce with no sides to a plate of beef with sides of carrots, roast potatoes and cauliflower cheese yet charge the same??

    Super food, great service, lovely evening. I asked for a wine list to be sent in advance which it was, but we were sent 2 slightly different ones, which was confusing and then some wines weren’t available on the night. We had a great meal.

    Lunch 3 course experience with wine flight. Great food but would have liked more variety for selection. Seemed a little expensive, but lots of extras. Very quiet though which impacts the ambience. Will be back , have come here for years and love the food and place but it has been better.9

    From start to finish it was exquisite! It was our anniversary and what a lovely touch with a hand signed card from all the staff and a box of chocolates.
