Arrived mid-afternoon without a booking. Waited a few minutes and got a table for three without fuss. A little pricey but food was good, with generous size portions. Staff were friendly. All in, a good experience.

Called in midweek no booking and taken straight to a table doubt this would happen in summer as lovely place to eat on warm evenings. Attentive staff and good food at reasonable prices.

Was recommended this bistro by some friends and what a lovely place to eat! Friendly attentive staff, great atmosphere and good food. My husband had the roast beef and Yorkshire pud which was delicious as was the quinoa with Mediterranean vegetables that I had. The tiramisu was a bit disappointing and tasteless unfortunately, but everything else was lovely. We will... More

Choosing a venue for my birthday meal was a difficult one, the room, the service and most of all the food had to be perfect, the Whinstone View excelled in each of these areas. I had a party of 30 people many of which had travelled 100 miles to get there so it was important to me that everyone was... More

This has been one of my favourite eating stops in the North East for a long time, lovely setting with fantastic sun terrace ideal venue when the weather is at its best. The waiting staff are all excellent and the food is consistently good at a fair price. On my recent lunchtime visit it appears that the popularity has pushed... More

None of us could eat the dreadful roast potatoes we were left hungry despite all having two courses! The best assets... More

Visited here recently for a friend's son's 18th. We were greeted warmly and offered the chance to wait in the bar or go upstairs. We were the first to arrive so stayed downstairs for a while. When we did go up the private room was lovely, nicely decorated, had its own toilets and the staff were attentive. The meal was... More

My husband thought he had booked us a family of 5 into the bistro for Mother's Day, seems he had made a mistake and had actually booked another restaurant instead. Despite this and the venue being fully booked they accommodated us anyway letting us eat in an private hire area. The menu was abundant with choice and the food arrived... More

The atmosphere, despite being the only couple in the bistro, was good and the décor inkeeping with the rest of the venue. My fiancé had a toasted muffin with poached eggs & melted cheese, which he enjoyed and there was plenty of choice of cereal, spreads and fruit juices. I ordered sausages, bacon & beans and the sausages were significantly... More
