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.

Altogether a memorable experience! I was concerned that the new format would be disappointing but was pleased to be reassured that not all that much has been changed! Thank goodness! The roast beef, Yorkshire Pudding, selection of vegetables and rich gravy was up to usual high standards!

The meal was great. Especially roasted beef was awesome.
But unfortunately I can't say "the service was so good". It may we can't speak English well, but I think great restaurant can make everyone happy. Our waiter didn't explain about meal on the menu, and he forgot our two orders. Do you think " tourists are NOT welcome"?
That was too bad for us, because we were looking forward to coming here.

Very disappointed with the food. Myself and one other in my party ordered the beef carvery. The Yorkshire puddings were so hard they were almost inedible. If the gravy was a little more plentiful we could have used it to soften the Yorkshires,but it wasn't. The roast potatoes were also overcooked. Another member of my party ordered the 10 oz Buccleuch sirloin which was overcooked.

Having said that we started our evening in the cocktail bar and were delighted with the service and the cocktails. Although the surroundings, the ambiance and the service were perfect I'm afraid I won't be recommending Simpsons to friends and colleagues

Only negative comment was the wine 🍷 list - should have options in the £20 -£30 range

Overall :: A really enjoyable evening

Always a wonderful experience, my only criticism would be that the cheapest bottle of wine was £36 which really pushed the cost up.

Not our choice, we were given a meal here as a present and were a bit daunted at the thought of eating in such a formal posh place. It was a delight. Lovely unobtrusive service, great food and ambiance. The whole experience was polished but not at all fussy.

Fantastic service, professional without being stuffy. We all had the roast dinners, plenty of meat and the beef was incredibly soft and tender. Portion sizes were good with 2 Yorkshire puddings and individual portions of roasties and carrots , plus gravy. Everything was delicious. We've been meaning to have a family lunch hear for a few years and finally got round to it, we'd given it a big build up and it certainly didn't disappoint.
