A very good restaurant that serves some excellent food without bankrupting you. The ruhubard plate was a very nice little range of desserts to share, it made excellent value

Found Whits via tripadvisor and am very happy to say we were delighted by our meal. From the friendly greeting on arrival to the unfussy yet attentive service and of course a delicious meal the whole evening was a delight. The lobster ravioli starter was particularly well received. The trio of lamb was appreciated by those who chose it and the venison was just perfect - delightfully pink and tender with bags of flavour. The wine list offers plenty of selection and is very fairly priced. Please please leave space to enjoy a dessert. Choose from a coffee, rhubarb, lemon or chocolate themed plate or a fruit tart. Whatever takes your fancy you will not be disappointed, the dessert was the perfect finalé. We all agreed that a return visit would be high on our agenda.

We had a great meal at Whits. The food is delicious. The fois gras starter was nice, but not memorable. The Mackerel tartlet perfectly OK, but not very refined. The lamb cooked three different ways was truly well executed, but the jus it was drowned in was a bit unsophisticated. My wife chose a second starter as her main, and it was one of the highlights of the meal. The lobster ravioli in a rich lobster bisque type sauce was absolutely delicious. Whatever you order when going to Whits, leave room for the desserts. They are the highlight of the meal. They are priced between £7 and £8.50, but very good value for money. Three different desserts based around a theme are a feast to the palate. I chose the coffee dessert, and the 3 were beautifully bitter, and not too sweet. My wife had the rhubarb trio, which had a perfect souffle, as well as some nice pastries and even a home-made liqueur.
Add to the very nice food, attentive service and a friendly restaurant manager, and you have a great evening.

All in all truly the very best evening you can have!!!!!!

Took my fiancee to London for the weekend for her 40th birthday and booked for Saturday 2nd Feb 2013. Did some research and Whits was highly recommended. It was one of the best meal experiences we have ever had, truly excellent.
We arrived slightly late, due to a dodgy taxi back from the rugby we had been too, but as soon as we arrived we were welcomed and looked after excellently. The food was outstanding, as was the wine. Cannot speak highly enough of the food, quality, portion size was very good and exceelent overall menu. And to top it off the the prices are very very reasonable, especially given it's location.
Next time we are in London, this is the first thing we will book.
