Went to this charming little restaurant based on Tripadvisor review, and it didn't disappoint! Delicious food (I had a pizza and fried Brie salad, yum!), friendly service and awesome desserts! I liked it so much I went back the next night instead of looking for another restaurant. Highly recommended!

Nice little restaurant on the High Street. Food is all cooked fresh and is really tasty and hot. The puddings are home made in dinky little dishes. Really nice atmosphere too. Around £25-£30 for 3 courses but they do specials mid week.Staff all very friendly. Would definitely recommend

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
