On Sunday last, my group set out to find a traditional Sunday roast. We all agreed on Simpson’s in the Strand for the quintessential experience. We didn’t have reservations, but arrived at straight up noon upon opening with high hopes. The dining room was quite empty, but we were advised that the restaurant was fully booked for the day with guests arriving within the hour.
A fortunate turn of events as it happened. We stepped next door to the Savoy Hotel and were graciously received by the hostess at The Savoy Grill, now a Ramsey restaurant.
The Sunday roast in this attractive dining room was very good:
Notice the “big as your head” Yorkshire pudding, a tad darker than I prefer, but the roast was great and those potatoes back there, perfect.
