The walls are adorned with paintings, trophies and prints of famous characters all collected over a 215 year period. As London’s oldest restaurant, Rules carries itself with undeniable authenticity and classic English charm. The food is pricey, but Rules takes itself seriously when it comes to food and service. The dishes to look out for are the game meats, procured from Rules’ very own pennine estate. These vary seasonally, so otherwise look out for the steak tartare and duck confit, their oyster range and short rib of beef. Puddings are the kind you’d expect from an English restaurant, with sticky toffee puddings and crumbles abound. Rules has its fare share of tourists, but don’t think it’s taking advantage of that – the food, although expensive, is very well cooked and of high quality. They’ll treat you well at Rules, and maybe that how it’s survived for over 200 years.
