Service was attentive with a smile. The hamburgers were the best my wife and I had had in a restaurant for years. Presentation excellent. In fact all the boxes were ticked including the bill which didn't break the bank. If you are in the area and want to have a hamburger and chips with all the trimmings this place is... More

Tonight, we treated ourselves to seeing Gillian Anderson in "A Streetcar Named Desire" at Chipping Norton's local Theatre, but began by treating ourselves to a pre Theatre meal at Whistlers. The meal was excellent in every way. My starter was the Deep Fried Brie with salad in a honey and pine nut dressing, which of course instantly became a sharing... More

Whistlers was a great choice for a farewell meal after a week in Chippers; we wanted somewhere close to our holiday cottage and a little bit special - and this is it. The menu was extensive with the blackboard meals being on an iPad (brought to the table). The koftas made excellent starters, with home-made components being really tasty -... More

Staff friendly and helpful. Restaurant was busy which gave a good atmosphere. Our waitress was knowledgeable when asked about the menu and recommended a good wine. The food was full of flavour, hot and nicely presented with sufficient to satisfy our appetite with starter and main. However, our bread and olives were brought to the table at the same time... More

Been to chippy before and overlooked this place. Decided to give it a go tonight, and wasn't disappointed. Scallops special was cooked to perfection, the service was great and was really pleased with the bill. Will be more than happy to go back.

This was a long scheduled catch up with friends so we were not pleased to see we were seated at 2 small round tables that were pushed together as close as 2 round tables would allow. My friend who had made the booking several weeks ago asked for another table and we were told there wasn't one, we pointed out... More

I would not normally respond to reviews on this site but I feel that the only reason you left such a negative score was because you didn't get what you felt you should have. As you have mentioned in your previous 5 star review we excel on customer service and are proud of our staff. Despite you booking early, we... More
