Warm welcome. Good food

A warm and friendly welcome was followed up by careful attention to a significant dietary requirement. Fish off the specials menu was excellent.

After an hour or so walking through Chipping Norton this was an oasis, a great place to meet friends and have a coffee, a drink and a light meal. It seems that whatever time of the day there is a meal that is suitable to savour.

Stopped here for lunch after a long walk. Had to sit outside due to having our dog with us but the staff were very hospitable and attended to us promptly despite us being out of view so to speak. I had Greek salad, incredibly fresh and so so tasty, would highly recommend this, partner had halloumi bagette which he thoroughly... More

We have just enjoyed and excellent lunch at Whistler's - Lobster spring rolls to start, sea bream and crispy duck to follow washed down by a very nice Malbec. I have to say that we have been eating at Whistler's for at least ten years and have never had a bad meal; the service is good and the menu changes... More

Breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner or just a croissant and coffee, Whistlers does it all. And does it very well. We love sitting down with a paper and coffee or brunch. The atmosphere is like a French bistro/cafe. We also had dinner with friends on New Year's Eve. It was a night to remember. Everything is done in a... More

If you're looking for good food to eat in or takeaway then give Whistlers a go. The takeaway range goes beyond a great pizza selection in to the main menu. The service is friendly and efficient and, if you get there in time, it's nice to sit at the bar whilst your takeaway is freshly cooked.

This was a post-pantomime meal for our family. Here is the email I have just sent to Jane who runs this excellent establishment: Even though we had pre-ordered, handling 30 people arriving at the same time cannot be easy! Dear Jane, Just to say that we were all mightily impressed on Monday evening, not only with the standard of the... More
