Simpsons in the Strand Restaurant – For a true taste of all that is best in British cuisine there is no finer dining establishment than Simpsons in the Strand. Only the finest seasonal ingredients are used by Master Cook Gerry Rae in a Bill of Fare that offers a wide range of classical dishes, including the best Roast Beef and Lamb in the country, and game in season. Roasts are carved at guests’ tables, from antique silver-domed trolleys, by Simpson’s Master Carvers in a perfect example of restaurant theatre. Simpson’s also serves the Great British Breakfast on weekdays, with the ‘Ten Deadly Sins’ for trencherman appetites.




Learn the forgotten art of carving from an expert, Master Cook Gerry Rae, the man responsible for teaching all the carvers in a restaurant famous for its roast meats.



Would be master carvers receive tuition lasting 90 minutes, including time to practice on a variety of joints, a presentation carving knife and fork, and a certificate of competence and lunch.

Friends and family of the student carver are encouraged to join for post lesson lunch when the successful carver can exhibit his or her new acquired skills.
