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

Food hit and miss often one good course one ok nice food when good but service lets them down massively! Made to feel in the... More

Really enjoyed our meal, had the fig & stilton pizzarette as a starter to share which was very tasty. Chargrilled Chicken breast & slow cooked belly pork which were equally delicious. Staff friendly & attentive - couldn't fault it and pleasantly surprised with the bill!

The food was mixed - some dishes were excellent but some were a little disappointing. It seemed like the cookery skills were very advanced - for example my sea bream was cooked to perfection - but the other elements of the meal didn't quite work together. Not always a bad thing though - I relish the chance to be critical... More

10 of us, all male, arrived at 8.30 on a busy Saturday night and all of whom were probably on the wrong side of sober (it was the FA cup final day) but we were greeted warmly. From start to finish Jane and Tom looked after us with style, charm and good humour and I think that was probably a... More

Very impressed with Whistlers. Great buzz and atmosphere, attentive service and lovely food. Apologies to other diners, as our large table of 12 was more than a little 'raucous'. Could not fault, Whistlers at all. Genuinely had a superb evening.

I booked for a party of friends on a gold weekend and from the start the owner of the restaurant was very helpful. When we arrived some of our party had been enjoying themselves in the local pubs and i think we increased the over-all volume of the dining room to 'beyond comfortable' for some of the other diners.
