Originally opened in 1927, the Rex 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 capital’s finest wine cellars.

The wine list – long a whispered, greedy little secret among the capital’s bibulous – should be preserved for the nation in the galleries above. Marina O'Loughlin, The Guardian

The award-winning wine cellar is curated by Hamish Anderson, who would be delighted to make recommendations and decant wine prior to your arrival.

Rex Whistler is also available for hire for corporate and private events.
