Leicester Square's The Londoner offers fabulous alfresco dining at Whitcomb's

With summer weather in full-swing there is no better place to unwind with a refreshing cocktail than at Whitcomb’s - the signature restaurant at the heart of super boutique The Londoner Hotel which has recently opened its elegant summer terrace.

The abundantly floral terrace, complete with its own loveseat swing, in partnership with ST~GERMAIN, the world’s first liqueur made with fresh handpicked elderflower blossoms. invites guests to drink cocktails and dine alfresco from Whitcomb’s French Mediterranean menu in this sun-drenched, tucked-away corner of London’s iconic Leicester Square.

Whitcomb’s expert Mixologists have worked alongside the team at ST~GERMAIN to develop a summer drinks menu that rightfully celebrates the wild, natural sweetness of the fresh hand-picked elderflower blossoms that give ST-GERMAIN its unforgettable flavour. Gently blended in France, the elderflower is prized for its uncanny ability to add a universally delicious twist to any cocktail. Served from the dedicated ST~GERMAIN bar, the menu features a ST~GERMAIN Spritz, Riviera Martini, Fleur de Sureau Negroni, and sparkling Rosé cocktail.

Franck Dedieu, brand ambassador for ST-GERMAIN says: "We are thrilled to be partnering with The Londoner Hotel to launch its new terrace. We wanted to create the perfect space to make summer moments bloom – and what better way than over a delicious ST~GERMAIN Spritz."

The Whitcomb’s a la carte menu - best known for its modern interpretations of much-loved dishes and French classics - is available for lunch and dinner on the terrace. Small plates, which are perfect for a drawn-out lunch on the terrace, include Tuna Tartare with confit egg yolk and Oscietra caviar, and Carpaccio de Poisson, of yellowtail with Côte d’Azur lemon, olive oil and black sea salt. A truly Epicurean delight is Whitcomb’s take on the classic Escargots with white wine, garlic, and n’duja lemon butter.

Larger dishes on the a la carte menu include fresh pastas, such as rigatoni au homard, with seared lobster and Scotch bonnet labneh crème; and agnolotti au fromage et beurre, with a rich cheese béchamel and crispy sage butter. Heading up the menu are Whitcomb’s signature plates, which include Filet de Sole with citrus garlic butter; and Lobster Thermidor, to be enjoyed with frites and warm artisan French baguette. To finish, desserts include mille-feuille and tarte au citron.

There's nothing more that we love than discovering hidden gems like Whitcomb's - a true sanctuary and escape from the hustle and bustle of Leicester Square.

Whitcomb’s summer terrace is open from May - September
