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
Visited with friends for Sunday lunch. Started with cocktails in the bar upstairs , they mix a wonderful ey had a most enjoyable lazy lunch food outstanding and the services was relaxed but professional . Pianist was most enjoyable not sure Sunday lunch in London comes better than this.
This has been my third time at the Simpsons and i can say it never let you down. The real taste of English food is here. I particularly appreciated the soup with a spicy and flavoured taste and of course the meat was at its top , tender and tasty. The service was impeccable. See you soon Simpson's.
We had promised ourselves a trip to Simpson's for years. It did not disappoint and was worth the wait. My potted shrimp starter was excellent with piquancy and heat and my husband had a chicken liver parfait which was so good. The carvery beef is legend so we indulged. The welcome was warm and the service second to none. The wines are good but quite expensive for our pockets albeit we splashed out on a glass each (£16! each!) but this was special in the year of our Ruby wedding anniversary and not something we could do everyday of course. Lovely traditional restaurant.
Every time I visit Simpson's it's the same - excellent service, food, staff, and ambiance. It's one of the few restaurants where you can have a conversation without having to compete with other diners voices. The staff are professional, accommodating, without being intrusive. It will be another visit in a few months time!
we arrived early for drinks in the bar as incouraged to do so by the Simpson site only to be told that it was full,turned out on to the street to fine another bar, ended up across the road at the Strand Palace deep pockets required.
On our return the evening was a great occasion for the whole family
Went for Sunday lunch with our daughter and her partner - we’ve had several lunch visits and we weren’t disappointed this time either.
Some of the decor has changed and certainly the waiters were somewhat younger than before but all was at it should be.
Price has gone up a bit but I suppose it’s hard to find somewhere which hasn’t increased its prices.
I booked a table for a pre-theatre meal for my niece's birthday. She arrived with her boyfriend at 5.00pm for cocktails served in the bar upstairs, and we were shortly led to our table in the grand dining room. For he next 2 hours we tucked into sumptuous food and excellent wine served by by a wonderful friendly waitress who put everyone at their ease. Dining at Simpsons In The Strand is a treat, and as soon as you have experienced it once you know you will return again and again. Superb.
Simpsons went through an awful phase and it is good to see it back to it's old self. The Major-Domo set the standard with charm and humour and the staff were attentive and helpful. The Beef was was back to it's very best. Very reassuring to see old standards of service and quality of ingredients and cooking returned to this carnivores Mecca. I thought the wine list was a bit naughty and overpriced, and I hope that this does not mean that the restaurant is going down the Rules route and turning into a tourist trap and pricing the locals out.
My friend and I went to Simpsons for a belated birthday celebratory meal. The staff were excellent and fully attentive from the point of arrival and the dining room is a fine example of the craftsmanship we associate with olden Times. We both had the beef, when in Rome and all that. I had the sticky toffee pudding and it was scrumptious
wow wow wow what a great restaurant its great to find place like this keep going since 1878 there are so many chain like places today with the same food this place is unique.. We had the beef cavery amazing.. The staff were the most frendly i have ever seen what great team you have.... see you all soon
