Mediterranean
Welcome to a corner of the French Mediterranean. Nestled between London’s St James and Soho, Whitcomb’s serves modern interpretations of classic dishes found along the sunny stretches of the French and Italian rivieras. Simple yet elegant cuisine, prepared à la minute.

As a West End restaurant, Whitcomb’s is ideal for pre- and post-theatre dining, set just a stone’s throw away from theatres such as the London Coliseum, Gielgud Theatre, Duke of York’s Theatre, and many more. Whitcomb’s also serves a delicious Express Lunch menu, perfect for business lunches or a break from shopping on the nearby Regent Street and Bond Street.

Join us to bask in the sunshine on our summer terrace by Veuve Clicquot, a spot for alfresco dining on Leicester Square, serving Champagne tasting flights, cocktails, oysters and fresh cuisine.
Before your dining experience, we invite you to enjoy a pre-dinner drink in the neighbouring gin bar Joshua's Tavern or in the Japanese rooftop garden, 8 at The Londoner.

    The restaurant offers French and Mediterranean cuisine. The products are very fresh and prepared to order. The Dover sole was excellent as was the filet mignon. The atmosphere of the restaurant is quite calm and the staff is very friendly and attentive to customers.

    Whitcomb's is perfectly positioned for dining before a performance at the Harold Pinter Theatre. All our dishes were delicious, and some were interesting and unusual. Our server was helpful, knowledgeable, and attentive. We'll be back!
