After a hectic drive, this was a great place to unwind and enjoy a drink early evening. Service was great and the atmosphere was calm and unhurried. Note: in Halstead, you can park free on this road for an hour - brilliant. Whispers may be a totally different place at other times, I am sure and... read more

We enjoyed our dinner together we went on a midweek evening when it was nt to busy at the bar! Can get quite noisey at times, but the food we were served was tastey.

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 our meal went down a... More

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.
