About Simpson's In The Strand
Simpson's is one of the few London restaurants offering only the finest quality British ingredients cooked to perfection in classic British style. The restaurant's speciality is Scottish beef on the bone that has been aged for 28 days for maximum flavour. The beef is carved at guests' tables from antique silver-domed trolleys, which is a practice that began over 150 years ago and for which Simpson's is world-renowned. Other Simpson’s signature dishes include classics such as potted shrimps, roast saddle of lamb and steak and kidney pie.
Guests can also enjoy classic cocktails in Knight’s Bar, an art deco cocktail lounge located on the first floor. It is the perfect place to enjoy either a pre-dinner cocktail or after-dinner aperitif.

Simpson's In The Strand Ratings and Reviews
Not our choice, we were given a meal here as a present and were a bit daunted at the thought of eating in such a formal posh place. It was a delight. Lovely unobtrusive service, great food and ambiance. The whole experience was polished but not at all fussy.
Simpsons is an institution and is the epitome of traditional service and fine British food. The service is outstanding but no less than I would expect. The food is exceptional. These people really know what they are doing and they do it extremely well. Always a joy to go there but if you don't like the traditional element it won't be to your taste. You pay for the privilege but you will receive good value from the moment you step inside the wonderful world that is Simpsons.
We wanted a traditional British dining experience, ambiance and elegance, warm, quiet and first class service. Simpsons on the Strand delivered on all of this and more. And, the manager was kind enough to give us a historical tour of the building. It was a special, special experience complemented by exquisite food and attentive servicepeople. Brilliant!
I will continue to recommend it to my collaeagues and friends travelling to London.
Our waiter was excellent, looked after us so well in the restaurant. The waiter in the bar was also excellent. Both were very friendly and helpful.
The only fault was with my fillet steak which I asked for medium rare but came well done. The waiter did offer to remedy this but I told him not to worry as it was still nice. My husbands steak was perfect.
We thoroughly enjoyed the experience thank you.
Very enjoyable evening! The staff were a joy to talk with, very friendly and attentive. I ordered the scallops for my starter which was delicious, our friends had the potted shrimp which they thoroughly enjoyed. Three of us had the roast beef for our main course and we were all amazed how flavourful and soft the meat was, truly the best roast beef I have ever had! Our other friend had the pork chop and she was also impressed with the flavour. This is a place we will definitely going back to!
Ideal venue for a birthday/retirement celebration, espousing the best in traditional, old fashioned cuisine and ambience. From the cloak-room assistants to the waiting staff and carvers we had good attentive service. On learnin it was a birthday celebration we had truffles and a candle!
Worth every penny, last year we celebrated using set menu, which was not available this time but the food and portions were even better
The ambience is excellent, the service is very, very good, the staff are very friendly and the food is beautifully cooked and presented. I recommend Simpsons for anybody celebrating a special occasion.
The prices are high end but in this case you definitely get what you pay for.
I will happily gotta back there.
Food was excellent but I would say that saddle of lamb is better on the trolley than a leg of lamb, though I understand this was a supply issue on the day. A dish of the day would be a good idea and game dishes in season would be lovely. I am pleased that Simpson’s has retained the original traditional feel of the dining room, unlike the Dorchester Hotel which has destroyed its heritage and lost our custom, and they now need to improve the bar area. Overall, superb.
An amazing experience. We were made to feel welcome and special and staff were extremely friendly and attentive....even bringing over a Happy Birthday plate unexpectedly. The setting is like stepping back into time...in an elegant way....and the food and English Rose and beer were most enjoyable.
