A great pleasantly atmospheric bistro

I booked a table the Friday before mother's day with my family, partner and 4 yr old son. The food was wonderful, with two of us having the stunningly good beef burgers which are highly recommended!! The only gripe would be the menu, as I would have liked to have seen a couple more poultry... read more

I absolutely love this place! Took my family there today for Mothering Sunday. We had a fantastic meal as usual, service was excellent. Back with my buddies in a couple of weeks for our monthly meet up.

I organised a meal for 24 people at Whistlers and they couldn't have been more helpful. Jane and her staff made us very welcome and even organised place cards with our orders on. The food was lovely and the waiter and waitresses were very friendly and helpful even when coping with 24 orders at a time. We all had a... More

We returned to Whistler's because it had perfectly fitted the bill for us on the first occasion, when we met with friends for a longish lunch and chat. This time we found the same good range of options, with excellent service and a relaxed atmosphere: ideal for our needs. Highly recommend.

Stopped on way to Evesham and parked in the free car park off the high street. Nice, cosy cafe with friendly welcome. Sandwiches and cup of tea very welcome.

We drove to Chipping Norton in search of a breakfast. This was terrific. I believe you pay for what you get so don't go here for a £4 breakfast. This was a high quality breakfast with very polite service set in very relaxing environment

We have stayed in the area a number of times recently, and have struggled to find somewhere with that 'je ne sais quoi'. Whistlers filled the bill, and we'll definitely return next time we are anywhere near. We found a very tempting menu, with mouthwatering specials as well. The welcome was top notch, and subsequent service left nothing to be... More
