Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Whitechapel remains one of the largest gin selections in the world with an extensive cocktail menu it would take many visits to get through, set in a transporting environment nodding to Victorian gin palaces and a London underground station circa 1800s. With brand new chef Michelle Matthews (formerly of 15 Romolo), British-Indian and Dutch-Indonesian cuisine influences can still be found (nodding to the home turf of gin and its predecessor genever) but Matthews menu revamp means gourmet pub fare shines, whether a perfect beer-battered fish and chips with mashed minted peas and lemon tarragon tartar sauce, Dutch fried favorite bitterballen, or beetroot-cured salmon dotted with fennel pollen Devonshire cream, salmon roe and pomegranate seeds.
