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.

My girlfriend and I enjoyed a really nice chateaubriand, excellent chocolate bomb dessert and good wine...
Traditional setting and great service.
Highly recommend ;-)

My wife and I invited her sister who lives in London for lunch. I had deep fried white bait as a starter. It was OK but would not order again. As the main meal we all had the famous chicken and unlimited 'fries'. Very good as were our desserts. The Wine list was very adequate

I have been visiting Rowleys since 1993 and usually return for the excellent steaks and service. Last night we returned after receiving a 25% off food voucher. Well this visit left me really disappointed, The service was frankly terrible. Watching the head waiter (if that was what he was) leaning against the serving hatch, while our dirty plates remained with us for thirty mins was annoying. Perhaps we were unlucky with a bad night, but then at these prices you dont really want a bad night. The steak which was normally excellent, again was ok but not up to scratch there is better out there. So overall not good and we wont be returning for a while

Superb restaurant with great fish and chips (but pricey) and endless refills of chips.
Always go here with business clients and never disappointed. Never needed to book the staff are always accommodating.

I have been going here off and on for years. The food and ambience are both perfectly nice. On a recent family visit we used a pre-paid groupon voucher (sponsored by Rowleys) which gave a discount on the Chateaubriand part of the meal. That was fine - until the bill came. As usual the final item was a ‘12.5% optional gratuity‘. However at a quick glance it was obvious that it was far more. In fact it was over 27%. They had charged 12.5% on 100% of the original a la carte price, not even the discounted level which we had already pre-paid. But this was not mentioned when we arrived or on the bill, the gratuity was represented, in print, as 12.5%. My query was met with a shrug and “So? I don’t get any of it”. That surly response resulted in me refusing to pay any gratuity at all. Go by all means, it’s a decent place, but check your bill carefully.
