Dear Simpsons,

Thank you for saving my bacon! I had meant to book a 60th birthday lunch for Wed 14th Nov for 6 of us to celebrate my 2 oldest friends 60ths. I forgot to press the send button to book the restaurant and rang you in a panic at 11am! You were simply wonderful. Thank you! You had got the menus out with no prices, arranged the table, sorted the champagne, and the food and service were superb. Charming,friendly service and wonderful food in beautiful surroundings. Such a treat.
Thank you all again.

Came for a work function back in July to celebrate around 30 employees.

The restaurant manager, Gianluca was very helpful to organise and plan the perfect event with us, with a workshop and 3-course menu.

Before lunch, their Chef Leo ran a workshop in their training kitchen for us to create our own dessert we would then later eat- an apricot frangipane tart.

We had a mocktail outside in their sunny garden. The 3 course menu for lunch that Chef Luke Tipping bespoke created for us was delicious and the table looked absolutely gorgeous.

Again thanks again for the perfect celebration lunch. Can’t wait to come again

Disappointing from begging to end. Placed in another fictions reception room then moved out, not a great start.

Meal was pretty bland, grey mackerel, mushroom soup, grey sea bass, very dry confit duck.....

Disappointing not the word. Expensive wine flight, note serving says 100ml, 1 bottle divided by 8 who’s making on that deal?.......

Noise, the business drinks reception moves into the main restaurant and you could not hear yourself talk across the table.

Note they know they have a issue as there are acoustic pads under the tables.

Overall a very dissatisfying experience. We ha d guests otherwise I would have had to say something. Advice on this trip is avoid.

Redeeming feature was the service that was ok.

Went often when they were in Kenilworth(as they still are in a different location I believe).
We had the reasonably priced lunch with half a bottle of house wine each.
Service,food and everything else was impeccable and I am not easily impressed. One of the best meals we have had for a very long time. My wife's soufle was truly amazing.
I have eaten in many Michelin star restaurants in various countries over the years and with very few exceptions found them mostly arrogant etc.
Simpson's treat you in a very friendly and professional manner.
We will definitely be back.
Well done.
Brian and Lisa Thorne.

Back to this special restaurant to celebrate another family birthday. Celebrating 25 years of wonderful exciting cuisine, it did not fail to provide a sequence of original and a diverse array of courses.
It was a relaxed occasion, staff were attentive but not overbearing.Lots of humour from the Maître 'D'.
Have frequented this establishment many times and am never disappointed.
