Foursquare Tips

  • London's oldest restaurant hasn't changed much since it opened in 1798 and we aren't complaining. Try the traditional steak & kidney pie, buttery on the outside and tender on the inside.
  • Booking is a must but they can accept late night walk-ins. The staff are really friendly welcoming and accommodating to specific taste. The mash potatoes was the best I've ever had in my life :)
  • When a man is tired of Rules, he is tired of Life. -- Samuel Johnson, if he had lived 14 years longer.

  • The creamy pheasant pie is good, though save some room for the raspberry trifle, which is anything but a trifling thing.
  • So happy we came here. They let us in late and we had an astonishing meal. Wonderful selection of Game dishes but I went for the delicous Pig Cheeks. Finish it off with Sticky Toffee Pudding! Bravo.
  • The steak and kidney pudding is the dish I've been having here for 20 years. Each time I visit I tell myself I'll have something different and then can't bring myself to do it.
