Coronavirus (COVID-19)

With the escalation of the COVID-19 global health issue we are conscious of protecting the well-being of our members, their guests, family, work colleagues and employees in the hospitality industry, and also of adhering to government directives. Sadly therefore all events arranged throughout Britain by the Bailliage of Grand Bretagne have been cancelled until further notice. Events, including postponed ones, will recommence at the earliest possible time that the situation allows.

Rex Whistler Restaurant at Tate Britain

Originally opened in 1927, the Rex Whistler Restaurant was described as ‘The Most Amusing Room in Europe’, owing to its specially commissioned mural, The Expedition in Pursuit of Rare Meats. It has been the site of political and social intrigue over the decades, as well as gaining a reputation for having one of the capital’s finest wine cellars.

"The wine list – long a whispered, greedy little secret among the capital’s bibulous – should be preserved for the nation in the galleries above"’ Marina O’Loughlin, The Guardian

The wine cellar is overseen by our sommelier Gustavo Medina, who would be delighted to make recommendations and decant wine prior to your arrival. Rex Whistler is also available for hire for corporate and private events.
