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.
Quite simply the best Roast Dinner in London with staff and service second to none
A wonderful dining experience for that special occasion
The best roast beef, full stop. Amazing service its like being transported back to the 20's
We came to London for my husband’s Birthday and this was the place we wanted to celebrate it in style. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like Royalty!! The space, the service, the food- were beyond exceptional! We will be Back!!!
Had the saddle of lamb off the carving trolley and it was absolutely delicious from start to finish. Definitely worth the money spent.
service was a bit slow, drinks took some time before they were served
We visited Simpson`s for a family Sunday lunch to celebrate my wife`s birthday. We have been a few times before and the food and service remains first class. My son particularly likes to have the opportunity of winning at Chess !! Very relaxed and well looked after ( although not cheap ).
The food was good, and good atmosphere, however the service was not so great: wine arrived after main course arrived and they needed reminding!
The beef wellington was good. The pate was great. All in all it was a good experience for my wife's birthday. We were compensated with 2 drinks whilst our table was not ready and had to wait 30minutes, so it was a nice touch.
As per usual, the standard was way above the price. Excellent value for money.
Perfect classic British food. The carved beef and lamb carved from the trolley were outstanding. Famous elegant restaurant in a fun part of London.
I hadn't been to Simpson's for the longest time so when I was invited by my brother to join him for dinner, I was very excited. I was not disappointed. The first thing to note is the wonderful staff; they were charming and efficient, who looked after our every need. The food and wine was absolutely delicious and the portions were generous. I will go back again soon....maybe today?!
Absolutely fabulous. Friendly staff and fine food.
"when in Rome"
Everything I heard abt Simpson's was right. An informative and enthusiastic butler and very professional and attentive waiters. Food was excellent and just as perfect British as I hoped for.
I will be back.
This is the epitome of superb quality food and service.
The beef and lamb carved from the trolley were juicy and full of flavour.
The roasted cod was tender and light.
Our waiter was professional yet friendly and very helpful.
Our compliments and thanks to all at Simpson's for the wonderful meal. It's good that in this day and age standards have been maintained so well.
We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and ambience.
This is a great restaurant with a beautiful, historical ambience. And Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson dined there, as it is mentioned in several of Conan Doyle's stories. My husband and I have been coming here for years. The roast beef served from silver trolleys never disappoints and all the side dishes are equally superb. Attention is paid to the tiniest detail. Even the bread and the horseradish sauce are exemplary. Service impeccable. The only less than five stars this time was the presence of a live jazz/pianist singer who was a bit loud, and anachronistic. I would strongly have preferred my meal without her crooning. It's not that she was terrible, but I prefer conversation. Even just an instrumental would have been better than this. We had Sunday roast at 4pm. She's probably not there all the time. I hope.
I booked Simpsons as a special birthday lunch and it did not disappoint.
It was the most wonderful meal with superb food and service.
It was absolutely amazing from the moment we arrived with staff being extremely attentive and courteous.
I would recommend Simpsons
Excellent food. Sophisticated yet relaxed atmosphere. Great selection of wines.
Lovely dining room, attentive wait staff, beef/lamb served table side was very good, can't say I would order the fish and chips again as it was just okay, chips not quite done.
Everything was perfect. I really enjoyed my dinner and will visit again! Thank you and see you next year!
The food, the setting and the staff are exceptional. Well worth trying!
We enjoyed a delicious lunch at Simpsons. The staff were attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. Our waiter Sam went out of his way to make our anniversary celebration special. A wonderful experience I would recommend.
The service is outstanding here. Made to feel really welcome by all the staff. The food was phenomenal, we can’t wait to go back and try the rest of the menu!
The sommelier helped choose a perfect glass of wine for a fussy wine drinker!
The service and food are outstanding!
Absolutely fabulous, just a shame there were not more occupied tables, 3pn on a Friday is probably a quite time anywhere though!
Excellent food, nice to still have a traditional restaurant in London that hasn’t changed too much. Restaurant service a little slow for lunchtime and not very busy.
Fantastic classic London restaurant famous for carting roast beef and lamb and carving it table side. Our evening was nothing short of spectacular. Outstanding food (lobster bisque to start; roast beef; Yorkshire pudding and English cabbage. Very nice wines, expertly paired and dessert creme brûlée top off a truly outstanding meal. Highly recommended.
The first really honest meal I have had in UK for some considerable time. Excellent quality beautifully presented.
Service was great. Food was yummy!
The Simpson's In The Strand restaurant is an excellent place, highly recommended for dinner. Very satisfied with the attention, the good food. A very cozy restaurant
A must do experience. We had the trolley cart carved rib of beef along with house salads and a nice Malbec. Outstanding with the horseradish and gravy. Excellent service. A little expensive, but when in London...
A British institution! Large portions of hearty British fayre delivered with excellent service in fine surroundings. Great quality too... Far from cheap, but not bad value considering what it offers. The downstairs dining room is a little more special than upstairs, if you get a choice....
Undoubtedly a very stilish and comfortable restaurant where the customer care isn't only a word but really a continued effort to make you feel good. The menù is simple and it avoid you an axhausting study to understand what could be hidden in a too wide selection. We found there not more and not less of what we expected. After many years it was like I remembered. Traditions don't need any change.
Simpson’s in the Strand is dinner, but it is so much more. I was there a couple of weeks ago with my wife to celebrate her birthday, but I was also there 49 years ago. Being there is a thrill for all of the senses. It is an evening of historic proportions. If you wish just to eat, you might select another place, but if you would prefer the experience of a lifetime, I would recommend Simpson’s in the Strand.
Best roast beef and table service I’ve ever experienced. Very over whelming at first if it’s not what you are used to as it is a very well to do setting. I’m usually more at home with McDonald’s and kfc lol. Though the friendly staff will go out of their way to make you feel very comfortable. It is expensive but I didn’t feel like I wasted my money as it was a lovely experience and I would definitely go again!
Food great, staff great- friendly, professional, attentive but not intrusive. Lacked a bit in atmosphere but it was 4pm. It did liven up as we were leaving around 6.30. The pianist added to the atmosphere. Our food was delicious with lots of lovely fresh flavours. Haven’t been here for a few years but won’t be leaving it so long next time.
Nice sirloin steak. The roast from the trolly was a bit average and overpriced at 40 quid and needs to be pimped up a bit, so wouldn't have that again. Wine (by the glass) was ok. Total price for 2 (including 2 glasses of wine) two starters and two mains, £180...
It's wonderful simply to walk into that beautiful dining room. And then comes the wonderful service and food. Always a great experience.
The atmosphere was great and the wait staff was very good, but the food was sadly not up to what I was expecting. The sirloin was tough and could barely be cut with a knife (which may have been rather dull), the potatoes were small and average.
