There is always a fantastic array of vegetables and three choices in meat; plus vegetarians are well catered for.

Great place to stop specially after a long journey. Had both dinner and a breakfast there and both exceeded expectations. If you like lamb I would highly recommend it if it is on the menue

I, my mother and sister came here after seeing a musical at the theatre and booking a table. We all opted for the carvery although the a-la-carte menu did seem appealing. We all chose the two course carvery for £21 and opted for the main and dessert option. Meat was cooked perfectly for our liking with a choice of beef,... More

the location is quite ordinary , unpersonalized; the food could decently be better; I was especially disappointed by the quality of the food which is not the one you can expect for a restaurant attached to a Palace hotel; the service is not sufficient, no clear explanation are given and if ou decline the dessert the waiter does not inform...

We went for dinner in a larger group (12+ people) and chose à la carte, not the buffet, which most other guests of the restaurant apparently went for. The selection of plates and service was very good, quality of food I would rate average to good. The crayfish salad came with too much vinegar for my taste and the crayfish... More

Visited with my husband before seeing Motown the Musical. We had 3 courses included with our deal but only ended up having a starter and the carvery. Staff attentive....a little too so at times. So felt they were watching you eat etc and were on you for more drinks a fair bit! Carvery was lovely...meat was cooked to perfection and... More

Carver had plenty to choose from and I would have been quite happy with just the starter and dessert.

Stuck for somewhere to eat at 7:00pm on a Friday evening, in the Covent Garden area, I remembered having had a nice meal at the Strand Palace Carvery some years earlier. I assumed that, being a hotel restaurant, it would not be full on a Friday evening. I was right and we got a nice table with ease. My partner... More

Food was ok, not more. Pork (passed on that), turkey and beef. OK, turkey is very difficult to cook in large quantities, and my slice of this breast met expectations, dry and falling apart. I am not a great beef eater, so I had only a couple of bites of what seemed like an OK rib roast. The neighbouring table... More

During our weekend break at this wonderful hotel, we decided to dine here before going to the theatre. We chose to select our meal from the Carvery, rather than ordering from the menu. The choice of foods was excellent, and it was delicious. It is open to the public as well as the residents, and is well worth a visit.... More

Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
