Simpsons- in-The-Strand - London

A few weekends ago I headed to London for a weekend filled with shopping, eating and dotting around in Ubers (which by the way I think is the best mode of transport now).

The first evening I didn't want to whip my camera out infront of everyone at dinner but had a brilliant meal at Dickie Fiz, where I tried Kangaroo for the first time. I had such a good night and the food was amazing - next time I go I'll take my camera and tell you all about it, but if you follow me on Snapchat (username katiejaneonline) you'll have heard all about it.

Anyway on to Sunday. I went somewhere extremely special - Simpson-in-the-Strand.

My first visit, but it's the most British restaurant I have ever eaten in. It was a place I imagine Winston Churchill would have certainly dined in. Oozing good old English style. 

Seated at the table with lovely white linen which I knew would end up with stained with red wine. I browsed, the menu and saw men at tables carving a big joint of beef.  

Before we tucked into our food we ordered a bottle of wine. Which just happens to be one of my favourite red wines (and rather expensive).

For starters we had Lobster soup and I used my bread to scrape the dregs from the bottom of the bowl.

This is the best photo I have out of 3 for the soup, but trust me it was delicious.  

And the potted shrimps. I love potted shrimps, I know it's basically butter and shrimps, but it tastes so good!

The main course was pretty spectacular. A huge joint of beef was wheeled, to us and the chefs asked how you would like your meat cooked.

I went for pink and 2 huge slices of meat were presented to me.

With some roast potatoes and Yorkshire puddings on a side dish, along with some savoy cabbage.

We also ordered some mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables.

I really didn't like the side of mixed vegetables they were in a batter not what I expected at all.

But everything else was delicious.

By the time I finished my last mouthful of roast beef it was clear I wouldn't be able to eat anything else for the rest of the day. I opted for no pudding.

I did however, jump in an Uber and dash across London to Kings Cross, to catch the train back up to Durham.

Simpsons-in-the-Strand was a great treat. Not somewhere you could go every weekend, but let's face it, you'd get bored eventually going to the same place every week.

If you want to head along to Simpsons-in-the-Strand, booking is essential. 02078369112.
