Red Letter Days Voucher The Savoy Grill Review

THE VOUCHER WAS GIFTED TO THE REVIEWER FOR THE PURPOSES OF WRITING THE REVIEW.

Gordon Ramsay’s Savoy Grill is a world-renowned restaurant, known for its beautiful décor and classical menu. The restaurant can be found on the ground floor of the stunning 5-star Savoy hotel, just off the Strand in central London. Having been gifted a voucher by Red Letter Days I was excited to try a meal at the iconic venue.

The restaurant itself is a beautiful 1920s art-deco inspired lounge, complete with intimate booths, lamps on the tables, and incredible crystal chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. It felt warm and cosy, and truly authentic to the period – not to mention luxurious in every sense of the word.

The voucher is specifically for the Prix Fixe lunch menu for two people, Monday to Friday (worth £90). I had some issues trying to find an available slot – the restaurant is super popular, so trying to get a reservation within 4 weeks of having had the voucher was nigh on impossible! However, because there were no bookings available during the week, the restaurant very kindly noted that I could book a table on a Saturday or Sunday, with either the value of the voucher to use against the a la carte, or for the Sunday Prix Fixe menu. A brilliant exchange, seeing as the Savoy Grill is often booked out for weeks, with random slots available over weekends, so this certainly helped me when coming to the booking of a table.

I booked a table for my partner and I, on a Sunday, where we enjoyed the set menu. The choices were surprisingly varied, ranging from French classics like Duck, and an English roast. With a sumptuous starter of Pumpkin Velouté and Steak Tartare, we opted to pay an additional supplement for the Sunday Roast beef main. As a warning, it doesn’t come cheap at an extra £20 per person, but it was definitely worth it – the beef was cooked to perfection, and the crispy roast potatoes, rich gravy, and celeriac and cabbage sides were absolutely delicious! Our meal was topped off with a heavenly Crème Caramel. Divine!

I’ll be entirely honest, while our meal was exquisite, coupled with a glass or two of wine and our supplementary charges, our overall bill (on top of the voucher) did come in at a three-figure sum, however it was also entirely up to us on how much over the vouchers we wanted to spend. You could easily come in, eat off the set menu, opt for a soft drink or other and spend far less than we did – we just felt the need to celebrate as it was the iconic Savoy Grill after all, and celebrate we did!

With Christmas round the corner, this Red Letter Days voucher would make an ideal present. It was also really easy to claim and use! So, whether you’re looking to treat your Masterchef obsessed husband, or your luxury-loving girlfriend, I’d put this voucher at the top of their Christmas list. With a super long expiration date (1 year +) there’s plenty time for them to get an all important reservation too!
