“You want a stand out dish on the specials board, a lamb or a porchetta and a creative main option for our veggie or vegans friends. Personally I want the Yorkshire puddings big enough to act as a vessel for the gravy. Potatoes need to be in that sweet venn diagram spot of fluffy and crispy.” 

Whether you fancy a succulent rump of beef or a vegetable wellington, Whitehall caters to all in a relaxed, intimate setting and we can certainly see why it has been ranked on this list.
