Regency Room

Located on the first floor of Simpson’s in the Strand, directly above the Grand Divan is the spacious dining room Regency, with its elegant Edwardian décor, Waterford Crystal chandeliers and decorative painted panels. The Regency room is ideally suited to formal dining or large meetings, lively celebrations or more conventional affairs.

The larger of the two events rooms in Simpson’s in the Strand with its capacity of up to 250 guests, the Regency room was historically the Ladies’ Dining-Room at Simpson’s when it reopened in 1904 after its first refurbishment. The room offered ladies an elegant and airy setting in which to enjoy the famed cuisine and service that was setting Simpson’s apart as one of the most eminent dining destinations in London. The room was immortalised by E.M. Forster in “Howards End” (1910), and has been used for purposes as diverse as international chess competitions and literary luncheons.

Simpson’s in the Strand underwent restoration in 2017, marking a new chapter in the almost 200-year history of this famous London landmark.
