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.
We celebrated our 40th anniversary and had a fantastic dinner. Good food and atmosphere.
Just was disappointed with the room, very dark. Service was ok, nothing to complain but nothing really friendly too. Food was tasty but for this price that was the minimum to expect. Not sure I will go back there. Also people were in teeshirt or short.
Great service and wonderful traditional food. Just a perfect example of fine dining in London!
It was beautiful - we really enjoyed it!
Very good restaurant one of the best dinners we have had! We will be back for more that’s for certain! 😀
We dined at Simpsons for Sunday Roast. It was an outstanding experience. The food was spot on, service was refined, and the room is magnificent. If you are looking for a sophisticated and historic room with a perfectly prepared traditional roast, then Simpson is the spot.
Cibo e location fantastici.
Servizio un po’ lento
The service we received was superb, every member of staff was very respectful and knowledgeable...
Roast was outstanding, dripping potatoes were just ok. Wellington was good but a bit soggy at the bottom.
Amazing food and service!!
I had never visited Simpsons before so was really looking forward to my visit, but the food was really disappointing. Three of our party ordered steak & kidney pie which was awful. There was more pastry than meat and the pastry underneath was thick and extremely stodgy. Such a pity that the food didn't match the staff and service.
A nice venue and good service, however the food in my opinion was really average at best. I'm all for spending money on great food, but £32 for a sirloin steak that wasn't cooked properly, or £5 for literally 7 chips just shows how pretentious this place really is. No real quality for the prices you're paying, just charging well above the standard prices but failing to deliver the right quality, hugely dissapointint. I would reccomend people visit Bob Bob Ricard which is a similar priced menu, but far more impressive food quality.
Sorry, I'm not one to leave negative reviews, but can't help but feel I wasted £180 for an average 3 course meal for two.
My husband and I were celebrating our 43 anniversary, at this iconic beloved restaurant and we were so disappointed. We had one night in London and we wanted to revisit the same restaurant where we had honeymooned. We arrived at 5pm to a very unprepared staff that could not attain any rhythm in service. It was not worth the time or money.
Excellent food and service . Both the lamb and beef was perfect !
Service was exceptional but I felt very let down by the food. I had the dressed crab to start which was bland. For main I had the beef Wellington but the meat was tough and the pastry underdone.
we were celebrating my mums 90th birthday and the waiting staff made her feel extremely special in a quiet and polite manner. we thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our time at Simpsons. thank you
Meal for 2 birthdays and it failed to impress. Cocktails and Oysters first and then a 2 course meal that was delicious. It was a wonderful prelude to a show weekend.
Out of town looking for a great experience and found it!
Exceptional our first vis it with high expectations all of which were met.Friendly professional staff
We shall definitely return
Very good however getting well done beef from the trolley proved a problem Neither serving was good and Simpson’s then gave up and took that meal off the bill
12.5% service charge was unnecessary Trust your customers to tip don’t just add it on
The 4 of us had a marvellous experience combined with a truly magnificent meal (we all had the roast trolley). And all this, set in a really atmospheric surrounding with great service.
Thank you, I'm sure I will visit again one day.
The best culinary experience of my life! The food was superb, fabulous wine and the staff were attentive, knowledgeable and obviously well practiced in their trade. A superb evening and I can’t wait to go back!!
It was not as good as it use to be. The carving cart food was luke warm and the pudding was tasteless. Still a great place to enjoy English food.
Recommended for my wife’s birthday. It did not disappoint. Everything was exceptional.
The food was delicious, the service was friendly and it was lovely listening to the piano being played.
Absolutely delicious food & wine Excellent Service Felt wine a little expensive but you get what you pay for & it was an exceptional Rioja
Such a treat for chess fans! Worth the trip to London just to eat at Simpson's. On this ocassion the service was impeccable - couldn't fault it.
A very enjoyable lunch in excellent setting with very good staff and first class food and wine.
This traditional London restaurant lived up to its expectations in terms of quality andservice
Excellent service. Interesting history.
Excellent as always
Great to see the old place lives up to its history, post its reopening.
The dinner was exceptional. The welcome was warm the menu was varied; the quality of the meal was conssistent & high. The dining room is impressive & sumptuous
This is a super place for a special event or a romantic dinner. Menu prices reflect the standard of the food & the venue
Good but expensive
Lovely atmosphere, Good food, Good service our first visit but will go again.
Celebrated a friend's birthday had a wonderful time and staff were very pleasant.
Very nice evening indeed, service is second to none and food very good, wine is a bit expensive. Overall an A for this traditional English Brasserie. We shall come back.
5 people went out for dinner Friday night (5th April) 4 of those people have been violently ill. The 5th person was also ill.
The service charge also goes towards some of the staffs salaries. One group of employees receives a higher salary, so there for can’t access the tips (service charge) the remaindering staff members (as mentioned above) get paid a lower wage supplemented by the hard working general public who pay the service charge.

All very good. The only real criticism was the time it took to get the drinks in and it seemed a bit chaotic as to what had been ordered etc. I'm sure it would not have happened if Roy had been around (I know he's on leave). Everything else was fine and reception was, somewhat unusually, very efficient. The food was very good and the staff very pleasant.
