Rules – The Oldest Restaurant in London
Rules is the oldest restaurant in London, opening in 1798 serving traditional British food. It has been on my ‘Places to Visit’ List for a couple of months so Hazel and I decided to go for my Birthday.
When we arrived, we were greeted by a doorman who welcomed us inside. The restaurant was warm and homely with Christmas decorations and fireplaces. We were seated away from the door by the window. The restaurant was busy and the waiter advised that it was fully booked. Each booking has a 2 hour slot.
There were a variety of dishes to choose from on the menu. We skipped the starters and went straight for the mains. I chose the Fish Pie and Hazel went for the Steak and Kidney Pie. We decided to share a side of Fine Beans with Shallots and Bacon. The main course took 30 minutes to arrive and looked amazing. The fish pie was filled with prawns, salmon and haddock which was delicious. Hazels pie was very meaty, she was unable to finish it. The pie looks small which is deceiving as it was very filling. To end, we ordered desserts. My choice was the Sticky Toffee Pudding and Hazel chose the Golden Syrup Sponge with Custard. The desserts were amazing and not too sweet.
If you enjoy British Food and a nice atmosphere then I would definitely recommend this place. The bill came up to £41 each which also included bottles of sparkling water and coke.
I hope you enjoyed. Until next time.
