How Much?

The London restaurant scene is so vibrant and transient that you could probably go to a new restaurant every week and be pretty pleased with your decision – such is the quality of the new joints popping up left, right and centre.

But, as a result, it’s easy to forget about the all-time greats sitting in plain sight. Simpson’s in the Strand (established in 1828) is one such place – that has been serving up posh grub par excellence to well-to-do Londoners for almost 200 years (!).

With mains prices topping £42 (for the world-beating Beef Wellington, which comes pink and succulent with a potato fondant and confit shallot), it’s not likely to become your standard Tuesday night fare – but you’re not likely ot find a better ‘special occassions’ eatery in London. Plus, there are a few specials for the younger, less well-off customers who are interested in checking out this London institution, including a £10 fish-and-chips lunch special and a more moderately-priced “young diners” menu.
