Visit Whispers on a regular basis with friends both for drinking and for food - and every time we go in, we are made to feel very welcome. The drinks selection is great, as is the food - and the food are great portion sizes! Worth a visit if visiting Halstead!

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.
