Originally opened in 1927, the Whistler Restaurant was described as The Most Amusing Room in Europe, owing to its specially commissioned mural, The Expedition in Pursuit of Rare Meats. It has been the site of political and social intrigue over the decades, as well as gaining a reputation for having one of the capitals finest wine cellars.
With a nod to its heritage, head chef Nathan Brewster serves traditional British dishes inspired by menus from 1927 to the present day.
