Fodor's Review

Lords, Ladies, and aristocrats blow the family bank at this Edwardian bastion of traditional English fine dining on Jermyn Street (the place first opened on the Haymarket as a shellfish stall in 1742). Posh patrons tend to order half a dozen Beau Brummell oysters, followed by grilled Dover sole, Blythburgh pork from the carving trolley, or fabulous native game, such as roast partridge, grouse, or teal. There is also soft herring roe on toast, plus pleasing desserts like Peach Melba or sherry trifle.
