A place worth a visit

Went to this wine bar with friends and wow. The place was packed but the owner was out of this world. Her care and attention to our needs were outstanding. The food well presented and hot. Even to the point of cheese board being requested and lovely selection of cheeses. The New Zealand wine with... read more

Helpful staff, and delicious food served in a relaxed atmosphere.. Not a huge choice on the menu, but what there is is very good, delicious and well presented.

After working on our kitchen all weekend, my partner and I were in need of a stress-free lunch away from the mess. Happily the wine bar is a short walk down the high street. Not in the mood for a full roast, I was immediately sold by the lamb chop. It was truly delicious! Exactly what I was after. Saying... More

I was in Whispers on Friday with a friend and there was absolutely nothing to RECOMMEND. The food was poorly prepared and utterly tasteless and the bar staff were rude and surly. My suggestion is: if you are looking for good food, a good night out and great customer service then go somewhere else.

We visited this bar and several others on our recent house hunting trip to Halstead. What a friendly and relaxing bar with a large choice of excellent wines. We didn't try the food which I regret as we had reservations elsewhere. We are moving to the area so this will defiantly become my local. In a town that has many... More

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.
