Gold Partner
5 TripAdvisor Traveller Rating Based on 677 reviews


Located in the heart of lively, fashionable Covent Garden, close to the Royal Opera House and numerous theatres, Rules is London’s oldest restaurant. Rules has an excellent reputation for fine British food, delightful décor and impeccable service.

Specialising in seasonal and game cooking, Rules has gained a vast knowledge of game through ownership of the shooting estate, Lartington Hall Park in County Durham.

Under creative head chef, David Stafford, classic British dishes are constantly developed and reinvented to the delight of regulars and newcomers alike. There are also two beautiful and historical private dining rooms ideal for up to 25 guests.
