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.

We've been to Rowleys before, and it was excellent, it still is.

Simply put, its a very high quality steak, cooked exactly as you request, plus friendly helpful staff.

The restaurant was originally the first shop of Mr Walls, of meat pie and sausages fame, beautifully restored.

We used a Travelzoo voucher, which represents excellent value (but attracts a service charge – see later).

The one less than excellent area was the wine – a carafe of “house” rioja (at around £40 including service charge). We didn't feel it was a very good wine, and not worth the price.

Now to the service charge, which has now risen to 12.5%. OK it could be removed, but the service was good, it's just the “automatic” service charge I object to. Chateaubriand for two was around £45 with the voucher, £72 full price. Rowleys charge service on the full price, not the voucher price, thereby adding another £5 to the “tip”.

Groupon deal, chateaubriand with unlimited fries for two. Food was pleasing and of good quality. A decent and not too expensive wine list. The setting is great - converted Victorian butchers shop, two mins walk from Piccadilly Circus.

I haven't visited Rowleys for a couple of years despite it being a couple of hundred yards away but it still retains it's old world charm and excellent service.

Well worth a visit if you are in the Piccadily area
