SquareMeal Review of Rowley's, London

"GOOD"

Rowley’s is just the ticket for heritage-hungry tourists and St James’s suited-and-booted legions who prefer their grub resolutely simple – a slice of good old tradition, culinary clichés and all. That said, the owners have responded to the changing needs of this regenerated part of town by tweaking their offer, shortening the menu and offering food all day. House specialties such as “perfect” char-grilled entrecôte steak (served at table from a heated pan) are accompanied by unlimited French fries and Rowley’s special Roquefort butter sauce (available to take away), while the remainder of the line-up is old school to the core – from smoked salmon fishcakes or crayfish cocktail to bread-and-butter pudding or tarte Tatin. The interior mixes a beautiful painted ceiling, gilt-framed mirrors and original tiling with nods to the building’s previous incarnation as the original Wall’s sausage shop.

WINE LIST OF THE YEAR

A great list for this venue: compact, clear and well priced. There are plenty of regions and grapes that the wine novice would recognise, but there’s also some interesting stuff for the cognoscenti to get their teeth into: Grüner Veltliner, Italian Pinot Nero, Slovenian Pinot Gris, and English fizz. Even better, the majority of the wines are under £25.

I used to eat here fairly regularly a number of years ago when I worked in the area but haven't been back for a while and I'm glad I did. It was a mixed bunch (unlike the suited business crowd you get at lunchtimes), families, friends and couples. Dinner last night for me was a gorgeous lobster and crabmeat fishcake with unlimited fries and a heritage tomato salad, husband had the fillet steak - all cooked beautifully. Excellent service, very friendly and helpful. We didn't have room for pudding. The house white wine was good and the Negroni to start even better.

Had a lovely meal before the theatre so the restaurant was quite quiet as we were early. The food was excellent – we all had a version of steak and chips. Best steak I've had for a while. Service was good. Quite expensive as no pre-theatre offers. Will go again.

After a pleasant welcome, we were ushered quickly to our table. The restaurant was light and airy, and not overly busy. The menu offered a good selection, although we were all primarily interested in the steak. The pate, prawn cocktail and smoked salmon starters were all thoroughly enjoyed. The arrival of our main courses was well timed and the use of a heated pan on the table ensured the meat was pipping hot when served. The steaks, two rumps and one ribeye were all perfectly cooked and delicious. The meat really did melt in the mouth. The unlimited fries offer was also fully exploited. These were also served hot, had a crispy coating and were dry from grease. The wine list was not sampled as the inclusion of Doom Bar on the beer list was ideal to complement our steak and chips. We also declined the sweet selection and finished with a coffee, although we would have preferred to add our own milk. Overall, our server, Sebastian, did a great job. If the service charge, added for convenience, had not been included in the bill we would have probably left a larger tip. The overall value was not unreasonable for London.
