The Whitefield Arms is a modern take on the quintessential British pub and celebrates the history of Whitefield through its unique menu and Bengaluru’s love of beer. A living history pub with colonial-themed wooden furniture and outdoor seating, it’s the perfect place to catch up with friends and colleagues.
It is located in VR Bengaluru of Whitefield which in itself is a very beautiful boutique mall. I like the way Whitefield Arms has a separate sit out area and entrance too apart from the mall entrance. On a good day, you can sit outside and enjoy the beautiful Bangalore weather and have a meal there.
We started out with classic Fish & Chips which also had frizzled onions, tartar sauce, malt vinegar with a tomato mustard relish. Really liked it very much as a starter.
Had one of the signature cocktails called Mountbatten which has scotch whiskey, pamplemousse, strawberry, lime and bitters. It was really one of the highlights of the evening!
Other cocktails we tried which we liked quite well are Air Mail which has old monk rum, honey, lime juice and sparkling wine and Colonial which has gin, grapefruit, cherry and elder flower.
In non-vegetarian starters, we had Limehouse Hen which was marinated grilled chicken with soya, chilly and honey. Just the perfect pub grub for your cocktails and drinks!
In food, the highlight was Mulligatanwy soup which is basically an anglicised version of the famed Madras Pepper Broth. It has to be eaten with some white rice and a sprinkling of lemon. I really loved this refreshing soup.
In main course, I tried the Grilled Spice Crusted Chicken which was a breast of Chicken served with mint and onion sauce, spinach and truffle mushroom rice. Really yummy and filling it was!
In dessert, we tried out the legendary Sticky Toffee Pudding. This was the rich cake soaked with a thick sticky sauce topped with vanilla ice cream. Really sinful dessert which we loved!
The Whitefield Arms has excellent food and cocktails and the only thing missing right now is the brewery. I really hope the brewery comes up real soon with some really excellent beers!
