The restaurant specialises in traditional British fare, and joints of meat are delivered to tables on silver-domed trolleys and carved there. In fact, so much part of Simpson's is this that they offer weekly 'carving classes', admittedly at a hefty cost £150, on Sundays throughout the year.
Under the tuition of chef Gerry Rae, student carvers receive a 90 minute lesson, practising on a variety of joints, and are then given a presentation carving knife and fork, a certificate of competence and lunch. Following this, friends and family of the student are encouraged to come for post lesson lunch where the carver can show off their new skills.
