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.

I had dinner here not so long ago with a couple of business colleagues and i was that impressed with the simplicity of the relaxed dining i told my wife that we would go there together sometime soon. That sometime soon was Sunday 23rd August 2015, we went for lunch and had a really nice relaxing afternoon enjoying our awesome steak choice to share with the unlimited fries. The steaks are presented on a table burner that keeps the rest of your steak at a nice temperature whilst you're eating what's on your plate although it is so tender i have to admit that mine was all on my plate in no time. My wife and i also had a lovely bottle of Malbec that just went so well with the lovely juicy tender steak. (Salivating yet? Hahahahaha) We declined on dessert but only because we were both full. If you like an awesome steak and you're happy with relaxed dining and fantastic service then this is a place you should try in my opinion. #twenty

Lovely staff, perfect food and if you fancy a steak, this is the place to visit. Service was great! Had a starter with asparagus that was truly delicious as well. I do recommend it highly!

This was the third visit to Rowleys (although first I have commented on) A good Central London restaurant with great food.
The interior is very much `Olde England` with tiled floors and lots of dark wood and polished bevelled mirrors evocative of an age gone by. Jermyn Street is very much on the tourist trail being roughly between Picadilly and The Mall.
The menu is suitably varied but they have made a speciality out of Chateau Briand. Comes with unlimited chips (fries). Service is good, unobtrusive but not particulary detailed. Although on the evening we went there was a small table who were rather drunk and behaved oafishly, and the staff did their best to control them and came to apologise for any affect on us, which I thought was good considering they really couldn't do much about it.
.
As for price, its not cheap but for the location and quality it is pretty average for a good central London venue. Obviously depends on what and how much you have, but around £50 per head. I would think its a place to book rather than just arrive.

We found this place while exploring London. It promises to be a steak house and we duly ordered steak. The food was well prepared and tasty. The steak cooked well and to order - only thing is the quantity was miserly. How mean can you be in a steak house? The endless chips is sort of correct. The serve is quite modest. When asked for another serve, the second mini chips arrived so late that my rare steak had cooked to well-done on the table top warming stand. A bit ordinary. Staff were pleasant enough. Pity management are so miserly. Rather than steak house it should be termed steak sampler house.
