Fodor's Expert Review Rules
Opened by Thomas Rule in 1798, London's oldest restaurant is still arguably its most beautiful. Resembling a High Victoriana bordello, here you can dig into classic traditional British fare like jugged hare, steak-and-kidney pie, or roast beef and Yorkshire pudding. For a taste of the 18th century, choose game from the owner's High Pennines estate, including roast grouse, partridge, snipe, and teal. Ask for a table in one of the skylight rooms, the bar area, or the Margaret Thatcher corner.
