Great food!

Always great food and warm welcome from the owners! Sunday roast is very generous and tasty. Great to sit outside in the summer and watch the world go by.

We unfortunately locked our keys in the car just outside this wine bar one lunchtime. It turned out to be a really happy accident. We had a great lunch and the staff could not have been more helpful in trying to get us sorted out. Thanks very much

For some reason we have never eaten in whispers but often meet friends there for a pre dinner drink. We also often stop on the way back from walking the dog for a nice cold glass of wine! The staff are always friendly and make you feel welcome.

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 it's no doubt buzzing... More

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
