"...seeing as the River Restaurant in this place is so appallingly dire, and the decor so hideously crass, this menu is the small miracle that the Savoy must be grateful for." READ REVIEW

"... given the maelstrom around Ramsay these days, the most surprising thing about the Savoy Grill is that it isn't atrocious." READ REVIEW

"Among the mains, I’m a fan of the steamed steak and onion pudding with onion sauce, which is rich and satisfying and costs 18 pounds, and the braised English hare with roasted saddle and buttered spaetzle." READ REVIEW

"If there’s a reputation on show, it’s that of the restaurant itself rather than the restaurateur – a legacy celebrated and revitalised by the design, the service and by Gillies’ nuanced take on Brit revival food." READ REVIEW

"This meat was incredible. I've talked of little else since. The flavour was symphonic – deep but heathery, succulent but dense, totally gorgeous. I had marrow and shallot sauce, and this was an eye-opener as well, fetching in more tones of sheepiness, so that the plate as a whole seemed to reinvent a creature I must have eaten a thousand times."

"my pie, a stout beef and onion job that is the shape of the pudding basin it was steamed in, (was) old-fashioned in the worst way... apart from this, the food is good, especially for a place of this scale."

"My friend Matt had roasted and butter-poached partridge with a delightful wee partridge turnover. We had a half bottle of gewürtz, a bottle of Pomerol and a generally okay time." READ REVIEW

"GRH has created a menu which nods to tradition, so as not to scare off the dowagers. It nods, but doesn't kowtow, because concessions are made to modernity - the separate vegetarian menu is an appealing read, for example." READ REVIEW

"Braised hare came two ways — discs of the saddle lightly roasted, leaving most of the meat quite red and rare, mixed with pieces of leg, taken off the bone and cooked until soft and dark, in a stickily reduced red wine sauce: accomplished, fussy cooking." READ REVIEW
