SquareMeal Review of
Walkers of Whitehall
Hidden down a cobbled street off Whitehall, this lavishly refurbished venue – originally a 17th-century bank – is something of a Tardis. The cosy ground-floor pub sells craft beers (Fourpure, Renegade and Harpoon IPA) for post-work pints. Head downstairs and you'll find a smart, leather-boothed dining room on two levels, before a vaulted cocktail bar knocking out mean, barrel-aged Negronis. The menu offers safe bets for tourists – cheeseburgers, fish & chips – but at its heart are vibrant Middle Eastern flavours: think shakshuka with merguez sausage, charred cauliflower with tahini and cumin lamb leg. Crispy n'duja croquettes deliver a creamy centre with lingering spice, while our smoky dish of grilled chicken, marinated in rose harissa, revealed the bitter tang of preserved lemon. The kitchen knows its stuff and we like the attention to detail: chips arrive piping hot and perfectly crispy. Weekends see bottomless brunches on Saturday and classic Sunday roasts – there are cracking set menus for theatre-goers, too.
Bottomless Brunch steps away from Trafalgar Square: From £30
Meat dishes cooked over English Oak on Robata grill, indulgent Chocolate fondant to die for is just least to mention. It doesn’t end just here - Prosecco and selection of fruit purées to cover your drinks appetite and the day just got brighter. 2 courses and unlimited Prosecco for £30, or end it on a sweet note and go for 3 courses with Prosecco for £35.
