A great restaurant

We found the staff to be very accommodating as we turned up on a busy Friday night without booking. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was relaxed and friendly, and we had a very pleasant evening.

A group of 9 of us were staying in the Cotswolds for the weekend and chose to book Whistlers for dinner on Saturday evening. What a great find! Fantastic food, great value and the service was outstanding. Our waitress Emily made sure we were always looked after and nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend and will definitely...

On our trip through the Cotswolds we called at Chipping Norton and enjoyed a lovely lunch at the Whistlers cafe bar restaurant. There didn't seem to be many places to lunch in the main street there but we were very pleasantly surprised with this little cafe which had an excellent menu and the service was very good too.

Excellent and fairly speedy service.The sausage and mash ( with prune and armagnac sauce) was terrific. Partner's chicken salad very good. A delightfully small and friendly restaurant

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 dishes, some encouragement to use... More

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
