Menu was classic or unadventurous. Good place to bring elderly relatives who don't like 'foreign food' and prefer steak and unlimited chips. Manager was very helpful but waiting staff lacked customer service skills. It was good quality but expensive. It serves a purpose but would...More

I had a 2 for 1 Days Out Guide voucher (thankfully!) and so my friend and I both ordered the Aged Entrecôte Steak at £33.00. Presentation was impressive (it was served on a table burner) though the waiter's distribution of fast-food-quality unlimited fries was rather...More

St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier
destination for high end craft and bespoke design.
Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which
indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the
establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during
a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s
Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing

Chris you need to contact the restaurant to get answers to that question. It may be on their website in the menu section. You are unlikely to get answers to questions of this type from fellow reviewers.

Description
Not many restaurants have a loyalty scheme, which just goes to show how very loyal Rowley's long-time regulars happen to be. The room is traditionally British, but also informal and relaxed. The menu changes monthly, and always features Rowley's tremendously good char-grilled entrecote steak or breast of Sussex chicken with herb and butter sauce and endless chips. The trad Caeser salad is also terrific. Short, intelligent wine list and the sun-dried tomato chutney served with the cheese is just right. Great for business lunches, or pre- or post-theatre.
