Our first visit to The Whitehall and we will definitely be visiting again. Lovely food and good value for money. Due to certain restrictions we were outside but plenty of heating provided, so looking forward to actually sitting inside when it’s legal!

The food was absolutely fantastic, couldn’t fault at all. The service as well was very professional and polite. However, my only comment would be that the tables really don’t follow social distancing guidelines, we were sat extremely close to the ladies on the table next to us and had to literally push past one of them to get past to go to the bathroom which clearly made themselves very uncomfortable. It’s not a complaint by any means but was a concern on the day.

Cannot fault any of the food, beautiful presentation and really great taste, a really brilliant effort to keep you warm due to the covid restriction, which worked well, of course the usual crazy mark up on wine, and a bit cheeky to add a service charge that included the wine, to add 10% to the cost of wine that already has been marked up, not required.

Pleasant place, though tricky to enjoy quietly and warmly while outside! The blankets, parasols, patio heaters etc were very warmly welcomed!

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.

Really great spot on a sunny day. Coverage from the wind but gets loads of sun just in time for noon. The staff were incredible and knowledgeable. Food was fantastic and reasonably priced.
