3 of us had a Main Course before going to the theatre directly opposite - perfect location.
At 6.30pm, the pub (separated from the restaurant) was heaving but the restaurant was empty - just us.
Chatty and helpful waiter.
Food very tasty but the portion sizes seemed odd. Beef & Mushroom Pie: big, lots of other stuff, too. Smoked Salmon Fishcake: just a small fishcake on a few bits of spinach underneath with a poached egg and sauce on top. Therefore, the 2 of us with the fishcakes felt short-changed.
The 1 glass of red wine was corked but the waiter sorted that out efficiently and knocked something off the bill. Perfect.
I'd probably go again though.

The reason for this poor review is that we arrived on time for our 6:15 pre theater reservation but the door was locked. We saw a server working at the bar and tapped on the window but she ignored us. The entrance is not on the street but down the alley-hard to find but clearly labeled “entrance” on the threshold and clearly locked so we went next door.

My friend and I booked a pre-theatre supper which we both enjoyed with a glass of Prosecco and finishing up with an excellent Irish coffee. We liked the ambiance and the music and after the theatre we came back for a quick drink before heading home. We ended up staying till closing time. The manager remembered us and was especially charming, making us feel quite special and we felt that if we lived or worked near Whitehall, it would become our local. We will be looking for an excuse to go back there again soon.

It was basically just a normal London pub with basic bar food. When I booked it through Top Table with a name like Walkers of Whitehall we expected more of a restaurant which it certainly isn’t.

I had a Caesar salad and to be honest it didn’t taste great. Chicken was over cooked (dry) and salad itself was tasteless...

Food was nice and service was pleasant but we were tucked away in a separate area and thus ignored all evening. We had to get up several times in order to attract attention and items were missed off orders. It took 30 minutes for our wine to arrive, long after our starters and only after I asked for it. Disappointing.

Nice quiet pub and restaurant in a mews set back from busy Trafalgar Square. Perfect for our group of friends having pre-theatre lunch before the Trafalgar Studios nearby. Food was only average though, small portions and overpriced. Still worth it though for the peace and quiet compared to alternatives in the area. Staff attentive and pleasant.

Decided to go prior to the theatre. The starters were small and flavourless and the burger unexciting.

I booked this restaurant after reading the reviews thought it was a bit of a 'foodie' restaurant.
we arrived early but were accommodated at a small table between 2 family parties, almost in a corridor. The Saturday lunch menu was very limited and the 2 of us decided on the same and were disappointed that they had run out, must admit we did then struggle to choose a replacement. the food was well cooked and enjoyable but this is not a foodie restaurant. staff pleasant. it would have been better to have been seated in the main areas but on the restaurants side we were half an hour early. they did have a good selection of draught ales and as I do like a good 'bitter' was a definite +.
From our experience here this is a good casual restaurant in the heart of London, if you want anything a bit special then somewhere else would be better.

Lovely place hidden away in a central location. Perfect for pre dinner for the Trafalgar Studios.
Lovely food and service. I would definitely eat here again.

Very good. Not too busy as it is set back from Whitehall, but much much better than most nearby offerings, which are very touristy. The only real criticism is that the banquette tables downstairs were very tight.

Food was not as good as the high price. Service was very slow. But the place is very nice, especially for the touristy area.
