A well respected restaurant. The food is the very best local produce cooked classically but with real flair. The dessert is the real treat, the Raspberry Syllabub is divine.
Nice classic decor and a cosy atmosphere but beware it can be noisy and your conversation can be easily overheard.
For such a prime location and exceptional food quality I don’t find them pricey at all.
this is a fantastic restaurant, staff brilliant and food excellent. The whole ambience and the interior is just right – but I felt a little crammed in as it was very busy on the night I went. Down-side is that it is very expensive – but you do get what you pay for so I would recommend it to all as a treat.
For some reason, Britain was seen as the poor man of foodie Europe until quite recently. But I sense Rules, as London’s oldest restaurant, has been flying the flag for fine dining since the day it opened.
If you want old English charm, delightful surroundings and classic dishes, this is the place to come. But perhaps save it for a special occaision as we did – it’s not cheap.
The whole place retains an air of its own, as well as London’s, history. All around amid the deep red, cushioned booths, there are satirical prints on the walls, and waiters cut a dash as they busy themselves in their crisp, fine livery. Service, as you would perhaps expect, is of the highest order. The menu is seasonal, and therefore changing subtly all the time. Food in a place like this is naturally cooked to order, and ingredients represent the best of British – beef, lamb, game, fish and shell fish – sourced from the finest corners of our Isles. I had a delicious and filling onion soup, akin to French soup, with a giant crouton, gloopy with juice on its underside. My partner had a perfectly prepared pigeon breast, pink and glistening. By the end of this starter I was fit to burst, but had to carry on until every last morsel was eaten from my main plate. I can’t wait to return.
