I use Rules because it still feels like an event when you eat there. It still feels special.
The food is traditional and well executed. It is good and worth the the upmarket prices.
The drinks and wine selection are reasonable and there is a price niche for all.
My only complaint is the dress code.
There are surely times when it is not too much to ask the public to match the elegance of the fin de siècle outfits of the staff with a jacket at least for gents.
Jeans and trainers and even a replica football top simply waste the visual eclectic delight that Rules represents. I am sure readers will feel I am being snooty, but there is a time and place for all clothes.
So, dress up a bit, feel grand and enjoy the history.
