Mediterranean
Welcome to a corner of the French Mediterranean. Nestled between London’s St James and Leicester Square, 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. Additionally, join us for breakfast, dinner, cocktails, and more. During the warmer seasons, Whitcomb’s summer terrace on Leicester Square offers a charming spot for alfresco dining.

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.

    A most wonderful space, sadly quite empty yet that didn't spoil our evening. The staff were so courteous and friendly, the food was absolutely delicious. The Dover Sole dish was quite possibly the best fish dish I've ever had. It's great to have a bar should you arrive early, like we did. What was particularly welcome was their flexibility and relaxed nature. We sat in the bar and didn't have to rush off on the dot to get to our table. They didn't rush us in the slightest, yet kept our water glasses full. It really is a lovely restaurant.

    They didn’t honor our after theater reservation, when we arrived they said they just closed the kitchen. They said they were open for after theater dinning but didn’t stand by it even with a reservation

    Great evening, attentive staff and good was very good. The portion was a bit too small. After 3 courses we were still a bit hungry. But we will go back definitely.
