This was one of the best meals I've ever had. The menu choice was limited but catered for several dietary requirements (as I am a non alcoholic pescetarian). The food was served very promptly and the staff attentive to service. The ingredients used were clearly of a high standard. Would happily return here. Only downside was that an ice bucket... More

If you are looking for class! Dine in Simpsons. It's what the theatre of dining should be. Exquisite food and wine selections. Attentive yet not overpowering service. Just sit back enjoy your surroundings and relish in the deliciousness if of Simpsons! You will never tire or watching a chef carve meat.

You will be hard pressed to find better roast beef than this. The service was very friendly, albeit that we did wait nearly half an hour before our order was taken. I was disappointed by the wine list which was very over-priced. Nevertheless the first courses were quite adequate and the roast beef tremendous.

We dined here last Saturday to celebrate my Mothers Birthday. The restaurant team could not have been more helpful and welcoming - arranging space in the bar for drinks before dinner and a birthday dessert also. Location is excellent and the Grand Hall is a lovely room. We were sat in a booth and this worked very well. Food was... More

Oh how we love this place. Always impeccable and friendly service, in a very traditional and cosy restaurant. This is how the best English restaurants used to be in the olden days. The roast beef is simply superb. Wheeled to the table in a silver dome and carved expertly in front of you, you choose whether you want rare, medium... More

When you read the mixed reviews you could think that the staff are indifferent and food average. Nothing could have been further from the truth. Staff were attentive and very polite. Service good. Previous comments say had to wait a while for food to be cooked, what do you expect, frozen and then put in a microwave? If so then... More

Simpsons is an institution. It has been around forever. Their Roast Beef is so popular that they advertise how many ponds of them they sell per year. It is amazing. I have been 4 times to this restaurant and to be honest I have never ordered anything other than the roast beef. English food is not easy yet roast beef... More
