Simpson's In The Strand
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.
Monday-Friday Dinner: 5.00pm-11.00pm
The Knights bar was very relaxing and quiet, the food was outstanding. I have dinned here before and although the restaurant has changed the standard has not, if you are looking for traditional English this is the place with lots of theatre at the table. The staff were really welcoming and Harry in the Knights bar stood out because of his knowledge. Well done 5 stars from me.
Excellent experience, fabulous food. Staff need to be aware of drinks garnish.
Perfect balance bewteen a slightly renewed menu and interior and keeping with the Simpson's traditions.
Great option for early seating (from 5pm).
Attentive and charming service from waitors and sommelier - meat and sides are as usual simple, precise, and of a very high quality.
Wine list could perhaps be expanded. Not much choice in high end Burgundy or Barolo, but fine selection of English wines.
Such an enjoyable place.
Will come again soon.
Never a disappointment whenever we’ve been for lunch. Welcoming and attentive staff and unique surroundings. Worth saving up for the experience!
Absolutely fantastic. Great food lovely staff a very enjoyable experience
Friendly attentive service. Quality of the meals top notch. The Lobster Thermadore , with triple cooked chips, washed down with Gusbourne Estate 2012 was the finest. My husband had the roast beef, Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes, Savoy cabbage and homemade horseradish which he said was outstanding, the beef just melted in his mouth. It is a great place indeed to have lunch or dinner, 10 out of 10.
We enjoyed our dinner as for the last 40 years when visiting lonson
The atmosphere is lovely. Service both in the upstairs bar and downstairs restaurant was fabulous. It is a great place for celebrating special occasions.
Staff amazing. Very friendly. Great food, the food wasn’t piping hot so went cold quickly. Overall very lovely and would return. Thank you to all the staff who made my Mothers birthday special.
I AM ITALIAN AND ANYTIME I AM IN LONDON I GO TO SIMPSON'S TO TASTE THEIR ROAST BEEF.IT IS DELICIOUS
I hadn't been back to Simpsons for many years and wow have I missed it. The beef was exquisite and my guest's lamb was equally good. The only minor annoyance was that some guests were taking the 'dress casual' to the limits and I think it detracts from the Simpsons experience. I would urge the management to be a bit stricter - no jeans, shirts tucked in etc. and I am in the media industry. Come on Simpsons try and keep some of the tradition and history of a great restaurant.
I came to Simpson to celebrate my sister's birthday. Everything was perfect, food , wine and the staff very friendly without being obsequious. We had a great time. Thank you
The best place for traditional English food! Wonderful food and elegant service. Piano player was outstanding. Only negatives are the lack of a dress code, which really diminished elegant atmosphere; and young, misbehaving children at the late dinner hour.
we came for the old english ambience-but it was too brighly lit and glitzy without any traditional feel .the staff were attentive but overall the service was slow .the food was of poor quality ,cold and of mean proportions .not so the bill which was very substantial -which was expected but only emphasised how poor yhe offeringwas. we told the waiter we were unhappy and the 'manager' spoke to us .he apologised and asked us to give it another try .we declined as we would rather have a decent meal elsewhere.
Absolutely fantastic meal at Simpson's in the Strand and yes it cost quite a bit but great food, fantastic service and a gorgeous building. I would high recommend Simpson's to anyone! The theatre of your Sunday lunch will never be as good as it as Simpson's and it really does have the service to match; even as common folk we felt welcomed and valued which really made the day that much more special. Cannot fault a thing!
Fantastic food and service. The best sunday roast in the world now.
Fabulously traditional English restaurant with a friendly, yet professional atmosphere. The food is superb and the service impeccable. The attention to detail is wonderful.
The ingredients are clearly fresh and the presentation is simple but thoughtful.
We enjoyed ourselves Thank you. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
The best roast beef in the world! And the place and ambience accompanies very well
Year after year, Simpson's on the Strand delivers a traditional English meal with style and panache, Although there are vegetarian options, this is a mecca for beef and lamb lovers to see served from the carving trolleys. In half a dozen meals at Simpson's, I've never been disappointed despite having very high expectations.
Lovely restaurant where the staff is willing to go the extra mile for you. Great food and affordable wine list.
Amazing food, beautiful restaurant and very friendly waitress.
A memorable meal. I had Tongue in Cheek, a menu item since 1931. The salted tongue was pink and looked too much like a tongue for my sensitive spirit, but tasted good. The ox cheek was soft, tender and bursting with flavour. I didn’t want to come to the last forkful. The accompanying mash with horseradish was disappointing - the potato was fine, but I could have done with a lot more horseradish. Otherwise the food was perfectly seasoned. My dessert choice was salted caramel ganache - truly sensational. Put a small spoonful in your mouth, shut your eyes and let the flavors dance around your tongue. Service was fabulous. We asked for menus to take away. I was worried they would be snooty about it, but far from it. We received the menus with signatures and messages from all the staff. I have to go back - I’ll start saving now. And I haven’t even mentioned the elegance and ambience, or the history.
EVERY TIME IN LONDON THIS IS MY PLACE FOR GREAT FOOD !
Average food but poor service! Very slow with the service and over priced!
I recommended to my hotel guest for 6 people. They gave back to me great feedback. Food quality. Price. Service. So definitely I will recommend to my clients.
Thank you Simpson.
Holiday inn london Regent's Park
2nd visit to simpsons and will definitely return
the sunday roast is the best I've ever had and the staff are fantastic
From South Africa, great meal, traditional English ambience.
Fantastic food. Dining area can be a bit noisy
We knew Simpsons was a traditional British Restaurant.
We were not disappointed. The food was fantastic.
The best roast beef I have sampled and the Liver and Bacon was so tender and tasty.
House wine was good. Would usually choose a wine from the wine menu but too expensive.
I would suggest up to twice the price of other good London restaurants.
But a great time was had by all.
Without a doubt the Best Roast in London, Fantastic service and excellent food, this is a very special traditional place.
It was awfully noisy, probably due to Friday evening
We were 10 mins late even though one guest was on time. We were asked to wait in the upstairs bar which was fine but our table was given to other and we had to wait 45 mins for our table. Traffic in London can be a little off on Fridays and I can understand if table was given if no one was there from our group. Waiting 45 mins was a little bit much as we did not eat until after 9 pm (table was 7.45 we arrived 7.55 and seated again 8.50) and no phone call was made by restaurant to find out where we are or to let us know they are giving our table.
Looked after from entry to exit. Food, attention, ambience - superb
Food was truly excellent, beautiful restaurant and the staff were very attentive. Will definitely not hesitate to come back. Only minor criticism, we were on a schedule due to having theatre tickets, and even though we told our waiting staff, the food was a little slow in arriving - we had to eat or desserts very very quickly. Just make sure they know you have a timeline.
Truly enjoyed our dinner at Simpsons! The ambiance is spectacular. Old world elegance and proper English etiquette! Loved the rolling trolleys with Prime Ribs and Daddle of Lamb. Beef Wellington was cooked perfectly
Great appetizers as well as desserts. Wines and champagnes were excellent. Highly recommended for business dinner, romantic interlude or intimate food dining.
Loved Simpson’s atmosphere lovely and food amazing! Would defo recommend. The lentil and tom patio soup was outstanding. The staff were fantastic
An evening to remember. Food, ambiance, both amazing. True to it's reputation
