Harden's survey result
“Olde English tradition lives on” at this ancient chophouse down a picturesque alleyway: a City institution dating from 1757. “It could be a museum of the British restaurant” with its “engaging service that treats you like one of the boys”, Dickensian interior and “authentic period food”, including daily roasts and house special ‘stewed cheese’.
“I imagine Billy Bunter would have enjoyed Simpson’s!”. This “City institution” dating back to 1757 is tucked down a Dickensian alleyway and has “barely changed for a century”, making it well worth a visit, even if the food – “simple British stodge” – “is not really the point”.
This “old-school inn and chophouse” in a Dickensian City alleyway has a history that stretches back to 1757, and still serves up “top-notch grub at very sensible prices”. “Fantastic staff” add to the appeal, and it’s “brilliant for a breakfast meeting”.
“The food is almost a side show to the surroundings” at this Dickensian chophouse (fka Simpson’s of Cornhill) in a City alleyway, which offers “a real taste of history” in an “unpretentious and thoroughly enjoyable” manner; good breakfasts too.
