Lived near halstead for for years. Always ignored this place up until recently. My mistake. Now a frequent visitor, I pop in for lunch. Food is good, vibe is good, and the service is friendly yet unobtrusive. No frills, a perfect "local".

A great place to drink or have a meal, friendly service and great food. My wife celebrated her birthday having a few drinks there with friends and everyone was made to feel so welcome, the staff are so friendly and it has a nice relaxing atmosphere.

My wife and I are getting very choosy about what we eat these days as we cook a lot for friends and try food and recipes from all around the world so it has to be good when we go out. Whispers Wine Bar is a small and friendly establishment based in Halstead town center. It has personable happy staff,... More

My husband had the steak which as always was lovely and my son the beef burger. All were freshly cooked, well presented and very tasty. Service was good,... More

For a Tuesday night there were more tables occupied than you might expect. The place was dirty. There are a few steps going from one level to the other and the carpet was absolutely filthy. The food was ok, although the steak was clearly not a good quality. There were two tiny flies constantly hanging around so you might question... More
