A terribly traditional British restaurant

In a clubby, 19th-century setting, the oldest restaurant in London (1798) serves up game from its own preserve and some of the most staunchly British food in town, beloved of everyone from Dickens to Graham Greene. You can't go wrong with the venison or wild fowl, or try the sea trout, mussels, or a delicious pie—just make sure you cap the meal off with one of Rules' famous puddings. This truly is a special place, well worth a splurge.
