Simpson's in the Strand, London
Simpson's-in-the-Strand is one of London's oldest traditional English restaurants.
Simpson's continues to serve classic British style cuisine.
The restaurant's dinner specialty is aged Scottish beef on the bone, carved at guests' tables from antique silver-domed trolleys, a tradition that the restaurant has maintained for over 150 years.
After a modest start as a smoking room and then a coffee house, Simpson's achieved a dual fame, for its traditional English food, particularly roast meats, and also as the most important venue in Britain for chess in the nineteenth century.
