My wife and I went after we had been to a show. We chose this restaurant for my birthday celebration meal thinking it would be a great treat. How wrong I was it was awful. The beef was very good but the vegetables were poor, tasted like cheap frozen veg and the section very poor, three types of potatoes frozen... More

We ate in the carvery in the early evening prior to a show. The food was plentiful and delicious. Sometimes carvery food can be like school dinners, but this was exceptionally good, and great value as well

Choice of two or three courses. Soup or nice selection of salad starter. Carvery needs wider selection of roast meats. Vegetables ok. Table service not outstanding. General ambience of dining room disappointing.

We are regular visitors to the hotel and usually begin our stay with a meal in the carvery. The starters, a wide choice of interesting meats, fish and salads, are well prepared and tasty. On this occasion we had three choices of roast for main course. The ham was tender and the beef was particularly delicious. From the limited sweet... More

Great choice of one, two or three courses. The salad bar had plenty of choice. The roast beef on the main course was very tender, and the gammon very tasty, plenty of vegetables to choose from. No room left for pudding!

We always stay at the Strand Palace on our visits to London and have always taken at least one meal in the Carvery during our stay as the food has always been exceptional. However, our visit to the restaurant this December was a disappointment and we didn't feel that the standards have been maintained. It was very busy in the... More

Above-average carvery with good roast meats and nice vegetables lovely staff but decor and atmosphere all really weird, sort of very plain 1970s travel lodge on the Peterborough bypass look. Not cheap

This is the third year running that my family and I have had our Christmas get together at the Strand Palace Carvery and sadly this year it was an awful experience and we will not be returning next year. Firstly the service was very poor compared to previous years. There was no one manning the front desk so I had... More
