Fodor's Review

Wannabe aristocrats and European princes-in-exile blow the family bank at this old-fashioned bastion of English fine dining on Jermyn Street (the place first opened on the Haymarket as a shellfish stall in 1742). Male diners are requested to wear long-sleeved shirts at this linen-draped time capsule, an often snooty ode to all things English. Posh patrons tend to order a dozen Beau Brummell oysters, followed by grilled Dover sole or fabulous native game, such as roast partridge or grouse. There is also soft herring roe on toast, plus desserts like sherry trifle. The wine selection tilts heavily toward Bordeaux, and the service would put Jeeves to shame.
