Expert recommendation

Proper big, hearty, classic British grub and carafes of claretLondon's oldest restaurant. Opened in 1798, the year Napoleon opened his campaign in Egypt. Serving proper big, hearty, classic British grub and carafes of claret. Food is at its best in Game Season - grouse and partridge, especially (Grey Legs are indigenous to Britain and Northern Europe, and are better tasting than Red-Legged partridge). Duck, pigeon and guinea fowl all brilliant, too. A soft, silken steak and kidney pudding is my absolute favourite, with buttered cabbage and rivers of gravy. I visit once a year, it has become ritual. This is classic food that's like a family hug, all comfort and joy.
