We ate at Simpsons last night based on the good reviews. The food was absolutely excellent. OUr favourite restaurant is Le Manoir in Oxford and the food at Simpsons was on a par. The only thing that let the evening down slightly was the quality of the service. Staff were very polite but so rushed! No sooner had we finished a course they were whipping our plates away. I had literally just put my fork down from the main course and the palte was taken away and the dessert menus bought. We had to ask them to leave us for a bit to enjoy the remaining wine. Again, as soon as I had finished my glass the waiter took my galss away and I had to remind him there was more in the bottle - he said he thought I was driving which I thought was a bit random! And we weren't quite sure why they brought the petit fours to go with coffee out with the dessert - why not the coffee? They need to go to the Manoir to see how top quality service is done. But all in all, a lovely restaurant and excellent food.
