(((() Brittiskt

Genuine, old-fashioned, good service and quality British food. Couldn't fault anything. Close to Covent Garden. A little pricey. Olde worlde decor.

London’s oldest restaurant, Rules has provided the capital with traditional British food since 1798. Timelessly elegant, its illustrious history has seen the likes of Charles Dickens and H.G Wells sample the hearty menu.

As authentic as ever, the Rules menu is led by wild game and classic British dishes. Whole roast grouse and loin of venison highlight the rich variety of meats on offer, topped off by rabbit hotpot, and wild boar and mushroom pie. Dishes don’t come much more British than the rump of Lake District lamb with haggis bubble and squeak, or steamed steak and kidney suet pudding, whilst the likes of pheasant curry with basmati rice, and Loch Duart salmon with mussels and garam masala, add exotic touches to authentic cuisine.

Historic prints adorning the walls, the extravagance of the restaurant’s décor led poet John Betjeman to describe it as ‘unique and irreplaceable, and part of literary and theatrical London.’ Upstairs, the Rules cocktail bar with its glamorous menu and plush red seating, epitomises the old-fashioned elegance of the entire building.

In contrast to the bustle of neighbouring Covent Garden, the age-old sophistication of Rules restaurant London is a 6-minute walk from both Leicester Square and Covent Garden tube stations.

    Warm atmosphere and a decor that reflects the restaurant's history without feeling like a period piece.

    Fabulous lunch. Very welcoming staff and great informal atmosphere. Beautiful surroundings. Can't wait to go again.
    My only small criticism was that my daughters steak and kidney pie was more kidney than steak - other than that though it was great.

    Food was very good and ambience was nice. We felt the service did not match the standards set by the food. It could have been a little more personal/attentive. Having to ask for menus or wine lists
    Multiple times for example. Beforehand we asked about things for a special occasion and the email was not acknowledged.
