We booked whinstone view for a staff meal for 40 people. The food was delicious, the setting was perfect and the service was brilliant. It's the perfect setting for a large do or a romantics meal for too. Thoroughly enjoyed and will be back again!

Excellent food, beautiful peaceful surroundings, the service is very polite and helpful but painfully slow. We've been here about 4 times and I would make the same comments each time. I don't want to wait 10 minutes to be given a menu and asked what I'd like to drink, then another 10 minutes waiting for the drink to come.

I do pride myself on giving great customer service and even I know that at times I am going to fail and that thee may be times during extremely busy periods that diners may have a wait. During very busy periods I do try to... More

Visted here with friends. Food did not match menu. Most of it processed in my opinion and very over priced for the portion sizes. The location is nice but wouldn't return.

Booked a table for 8 plus a high chair for Saturday early evening meal. On arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome and shown to our table. The waiter service was excellent, with advice on menu selection and also asked our small child what her choice was, she was certainly made to feel part of the dining experience. Restaurant... More

I went for an anniversary meal with my husband the menu has changed since last time of visiting and feel there is not as much choice. The food we ordered was terrific and excellent service as always, we will still be happy to go again in the future.

Thanks for the review great to hear you loved our surroundings and your meal. I must disagree with the choice of meals available as the menu has more choice on now than we have ever had especially with the new layout of the menu. But still great to hear that you enjoyed your meal. Regards More

10 of my extended family, from 23 to 66 had a very relaxing meal. Food was delicious, a few minor mishaps with the order, but those were soon sorted. Staff were very efficient and attentive. Would definitely make a return visit heme next in the area.

We visited on A Friday after booking for six people. Great atmosphere as there was a Jazz musician playing. Service was a little bit ad hoc, had to ask for menus, to place our order and a couple of times for the bill. Drinks were expensive.The food though was really good. Hot and generous portions. They did taster samples for... More
