Outdoor area organised ok. Could’ve done with a few more parasols for when the rain began! We were offered a brolly but you can’t really hold a brolly and eat your food! Not to worry though as it was still lovely. The lunch meal deal is great value. The pizzas are gorgeous and my husband loved his burger. Can’t wait to go back when we can go inside. It’s one of our favourite restaurants.

Flawless experience apart from the rain which the restaurant couldn’t help. Food and staff were brilliant. It’s nice to get a steak cooked properly and the desert plate at the end was a lovely touch.

Very accommodating with someone who is allergic to dairy. They were able to slightly change some things on a pizza. Very happy thank you! As for my other friends, they were also happy with their food and the service that was given.

Eating in COVId times isn’t the best however Whitehall have really made it feel continental. Coupled with outstanding service and gorgeous food it really is an enjoyable experience and one I’d highly recommend.

Hi! Thank you for leaving such a positive review, we have made a real effort to adapt our service to make people feel safe but also have the ‘dining out experience’ outside. Thank you again and we hope to see you soon. Kindest regards, Elle

Everything about this place is a 10/10!
It was my first time eating out since the lockdown was eased and it was DEFINITELY worth it!
The food is amazing, portion sizes are perfect, staff are respectful and efficient and the ambience is so lovely.
They also gave me a free desert because of my birthday which was so thoughtful💙

Excellent food and drinks on the sunny terrace. Would be good if the hedges wrapped all the way around to hide the road. Food took a while to be served and then we felt rushed to leave the table when other diners who were there before us were allowed more time (I understand that during Covid time at the table is a premium though).
Would definitely return for both food and drinks as it was all utterly delicious!

I had previously been for Sunday lunch pre covid and was very impressed. I went here on the 13th of April I do feel the cold. But chose to go here as on Instagram I had seen them advertising blankets and outside heaters. I’m vegetarian and had enquired about the menu previously. I spoke to Elle who was extremely helpful and professional. On arrival I was pleased to be seated next to a heater, only to be informed it wasn’t working and there were no other tables free next to one. I then asked for a blanket and they were all taken too given the situation with our heater, I thought blankets would be a priority for our table. It seemed a little unfair that other tables who had heaters also had blankets. Eventually some blankets came available. The staff were attentive. I ordered a tea and did not get the brownie on side like advertised on Instagram the same day. As they had ran out I requested a chocolate instead and they did provide this. The food I would say on this occasion was fine but nothing spectacular. For the price I would have expected a little more.

From the minute we arrived to the minute we left the staff and service was excellent. No waiting for drinks, the table service was fantastic, the staff were engaging and very polite.

We ordered a light lunch, we shared a tuna pizza (fresh tuna), amazing. We also had some boneless chicken wings which were to die for.

We will be heading back soon, it's great to be looked after and treated.
