Frequent visitor and food has always been great....

Not saying any of the negative reviews are wrong but as someone who has stayed and dined at WV over a dozen times I can only say that the food is very, very good and brilliant value. Never had a bad meal and the atmosphere and service are typical north east friendly. A lovely place with staff who... read more

we visited mid week for lunch, and were treated like second class citizens, the table we had pre-booked was in a most peculiar dark corner. The staff treated us to a wonderful display of negative customer service. We got the impression that our presence was just tolerable and they would much rather fawn over the other couple who arrived shortly... More

My son bought me a voucher for the Bistro as a Christmas present and as it was my partner and I first anniversary together we decided to use it on January 12th. We were quite sceptical ,as we had read some negative reviews. We were very pleasantly surprised.Both the evening menus were varied and reasonable. The staff were welcoming and... More

Had a Sunday roast here recently with family and friends. It was lovely, but it would have been much better if they hadn't put gravy all over it. Either serve the gravy in a jug and let people help themselves, or ask when taking the order. Bah.

Went to the Whinstone View with my partner, and came in just as lunch was ending. The Bistro was warm and friendly. The staff were lovely and took our order even though they were about to stop serving. £10 for two courses seemed a good deal to use and it was! I ordered Calamari as a starter and expected only...

There was a group of us booked for new year eve, we really enjoyed the night with the atmosphere of the music by a live musician playing in the background, tables done up for new year and all very nice and relaxed. The 5 course food was lovely (pre ordered which is fine). However we just felt as though it... More

We had heard good reviews of Whinstone View so myself and my wife decided to give it a try. On arriving I was impressed with the surroundings and the Bistro itself has a nice atmosphere. We both decided on Chicken Liver Pate to start followed by Lamb Burger having enjoyed both dishes elsewhere many times. While waiting for our food... More

Food was lovely. Atmosphere was exciting, warm and friendly. Sadly the waiting and kitchen staff were pushing the food out so quickly that the service was rushed.

I have to agree with some of the other reviews following the School dinner Christmas party night. We had driven 240 miles for a reunion night with some old school friends and although we knew what the menu was in advance, I looked at the venue and thought they must be putting their own top quality spin on it.
