About this space

Hidden away from the busy streets above, our samphire and tobacco-toned basement bar provides an interior of modern elegance whilst still embracing the unique character of its former life as bank, through the impressive barrel-vaulted metallic ceiling.

Available for exclusive hire seven days a week, the area is ideal for engagement, office and all kinds of parties for up to 60 people seated and 100 people for the standing events. The fully stocked bar provides a vast variety of beverages to cater for all, including a number of locally sourced lagers, a carefully selected wine list and fresh, made to order cocktails.

Staff were exceptionally helpful. They kept me up to date of all the preparations before my event. On the night they ensured that my guests were accommodated and gave me updates on the bar bill. When it reached the pre-agreed limit, they let me know and explained to guests the next steps.

The food was a tad expensive but guests did compliment the food so it probably balanced out.

I hosted my 40th birthday at Walkers of Whitehall. Incredibly lovely staff. Super helpful. Antony and Julia were really easy to deal with pre-event and answered all my questions quickly. Aria and Julia and Hassan were around on the day to help and were super friendly and attentive. Was able to decorate the place and play our own music. Would highly recommend the venue.

Nothing of note. Was excellent.

About Walkers of Whitehall

Welcome to Walkers of Whitehall, Westminster’s newest all day eatery. Providing a vibrant and fresh social hub, our venue blends the old and new seamlessly.

Like many buildings of its kind in London, Walkers of Whitehall didn’t start its life as a licensed site. Built in 1694, it was originally an Irish bank with cashiers upstairs and offices and vaults below. It has taken on several transformations since then.

Walkers of Whitehall retains its character by integrating the original vaulted basement ceilings from its former life as a bank, tying them together into a modern offering of elegant banquette seating, open theatre-style kitchen and stunning lighting and décor.

The Robata Grill influences our menu, and offers succulent meat that is cooked over English Oak with an open flame. The word ‘robata’ directly translates into fireside cooking, which is perfect for Walkers of Whitehall and the menu is inspired by this style.

• Vibrant and fresh venue
• Combines old with new
• Originally and Irish bank built in 1694
• Integrates original vaulted ceilings with the rest of the venue
• Open theatre-style kitchen
• Beautiful lighting and decor
