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.
historic place, very nice, impeccable service, expectations have been largely met, excellent judgment
I think it would be better if the pianist didn’t sing until later, or not at all. When there were just 4 other guests in the dining room it was too loud and inappropriate. Other than that very good experience.
Simpsons is simply the best roast beef and lamb anywhere in the world, just fantastic and the Grand Divan is a pleasure to dine in...
As always, Simpson’s was perfect!
Like dining in old world britain, the ambiance is wonderful. Oak paneled walls, tablecloth and uniformed servants. Food is old style english, must try the roast trolley. Eat like a lord and enjoy.
楽しく時間を過ごすことが出来ました。ありがとうございました。in abroad. In the nice restaurant
I can understand and feel “enjoy”料理は当然非常に美味しかったです。母が作ったroast-beef以上の味でした。是非また来たいと思います。thanyou simpthons
My second visit to the amazing restaurant, cocktails in the lounge first one was alcohol free wonderful taste and one English sparkling both very tasty. Down stairs to the restaurant my sister had potted shrimps the biggest portion we'd ever seen and I had scallops, to follow we had the roasts from the carving trolley both amazing portions with all the accompaniments followed by baked Alaska and a lemon meringue dish .
The food yet again was of top quality as was the service from start to finish , in fact my sister said the best meal ever in her life . We will return next time we have something to celebrate.
We must ordered the wrong things from the A la carts menu! Should gone for the carvery option! Such a shame! To be far we did get the money back for the two meals we didn’t enjoy! Sorry Simpson’s!
Je recommande l’ambiance so british
We were very well looked after and the roast beef was fabulous
I have been going to Simpsons on and off for many years. It has had some bad times but over the last year has been very good. In particular Roy is so good and any problems will be dealt with by him in such a friendly and efficient manner.
Best experience for our anniversary!
We were in a rush, so when they used nearly 1hour and 15min. To get us our food, were we abit disabointeed
I’d always wanted to go to Simpson’s and it was fun walking into the room. Bunching tables of diners together when the room isn’t full is a bad sign, however. It does not help privacy. It also didn’t help that my companion and I were put onto a table backing into a noisy and demonstrative table for 6 when there was an empty booth set for 2 directly the other side of us.
Service was generally OK although we had to ask 3 times for mustard (with steak!) before it came. We were also served a double portion (4 scoops) of ice cream, when the server had confirmed it would be 2. They also brought 2 spoons unsolicited for the pudding and a little embarrassingly we had to ask to make sure we were not charged for 2 portions.
T-bone steak for main was requested medium rare and fully half of it was well done. Just grey. We did not have a lot of time and so didn’t send it back but should have done. This would never have happened next door at the Savoy Grill. Someone at Simpson’s doesn’t know how to cook a bone-in steak.
Overall OK but I would be somewhat reluctant to go back.
A stunning environment with exceptional service and food
Staff and the decor were exceptional. Lovely pianist and singer playing in the corner. Food slightly on the pricey side but for the quality of the service it was fine.
Dine A La Carte. Pre theatre dishes poor. Waiting staff excellent. Sofas in bar very tatty and need a good clean.
Excellent Service Roast Beef and Roast Lamb served from the trolley superlative portions of meat, the best cut of meet that we ever had served with cabbage and roast potatoes
We went at the right time late afternoon and therefore we received excellent service not many diners nothing was too much trouble from the waiters service charge included with the bill
All three of us enjoyed the occasion and therefore without hesitation would go again
No adverse comments food was hot edible and well served could not be faulted
A delightful experience with traditional British roast beef sliced from a trolley served with a huge Yorkshire pudding and potatoes.
Sunday the 10. of march - and we had a wonderful time!!!!!!!!!!!
Left with only one thought when can I return 😋
Service was excellent as was the food
See you soon
Wonderful restaurant. Service was not too good. Took one and a half hours before our main meal arrived.
Always enjoy coming here. The roast beef carving trolley is excellent. Don’t forget to tip your carver!
Good ambience. Live music available.
Good professional service
Food perfect temperature
Roast beef carved in front of you
Worth the money, but for special occasions unless you’re extremely rich or have an extremely high standard for food and service
Fantastic environment, food and staff. Couldn’t ask for any more.
A truly stunning building full of character. The staff were welcoming and very attentive. I would recommend visiting the cosy bar for pre-dinner drinks and snacks. The dining room is luxurious with red leather chairs and wood carved panelling. The live music was perfect. We chose the pre-theatre menu which was very well presented, the cauliflower soup was tasty, however the potted mackerel starter was a little too salty. Overall, the surroundings and service were fantastic and the food was OK.
Loved this restaurant !
Perfect for pre Theatre dining when going to Savoy theatre
My son and I had lunch on Friday 8th March.
The whole experience was outstanding . The food , the service , the dining room and the welcome were superb .
A memorable experience and one we would do again and recommend to others , particularly for a special occasion.
Excellent traditional dinner. Service a bit slow but friendly
Lovely new style changes to menu and presentation. I'm not sure it's possible to have traditional and contemporary on one plate - but Simpson's seem to have found a way. Lovely.
I've awarded five stars because it was everything I'd hoped it would be. Simpson's is a place I'd always wanted to dine at, I was therefore pleased to take advantage of dinner there after seeing a show at the Aldwych ('Tina'-brilliant). A relaxing drink in comfortable surroundings followed a wonderful meal, thoroughly enjoyed by my wife and myself. Excellent unobtrusive service. Just one suggestion, turn the tables for two through 90 degrees so that both may enjoy the wonderful room and ambiance. I hope to visit again.
great place to go for a special occasion
there was a problem with my main course and they sorted it out quickly and offered me something else to eat while i was waiting and then removed it from the bill
All members of staff very friendly and our waiter was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. I noticed as members of my group ate it went very quiet as they enjoyed their food so much. It is expensive but you get what you pay for. It also felt very relaxed in there and when I turned around the restaurant had gone from empty to full and the noise level stayed the same. Good pianist too. Would highly recommend for good old fashioned dining.
Fantastic service , the surroundings were amazing and I was pampered as it was my 50th !
Simpson’s is a true London institution. Excellent food, service, ambience, setting...
I had the pleasure of being service by the outstanding Titi Badington. Although new to the staff at Simpson’s he was amazing. Just the right amount of professionalism, friemdly, attentive, charming and skilled. Thanks to both Titi and his manager on Sunday evening for making our experience memorable.
If you wish for a superb Sunday Roast do not hesitate - “book SImpsons in the Strand” go early for a pre drink upstairs before hand; to enjoy the 50s ambiance and then get escorted downstairs with your drinks to follow - they certainly know how to make you feel special - food is amazing, staff certainly made the experience. Roast cut at the table also flambé puddings. We went celebrate my sisters 60th and we all enjoyed the experience - will definitely go again. Pricey yes but food was delicious - worth every penny for a celebration treat - happy birthday Liz!!
Great experience with my family !!! Hope I'll come back soon.

Great place to be seen but the food falls short of the venue, service and ambiance. I expected more from part of the Savoy. If you want roast beef it looked excellent but I was not impressed by the Tongue in cheek which was over salted and minimal. May be back but only when trying to impress my American visitors who would enjoy the location.
The staff was incredibly attentive. We were sat right away and even though we ordered our whole meal right away they paced it so perfectly. Everything was incredible. We had the griddled prawns and the beef Wellington. Would definitely be back.
