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. We... More

Not having been before I was relying on a friend who made the suggestion but I checked the reviews. The biggest negative seemed to be that they used oven chips, however it seems they took the previous comments seriously and have now reverted to chips made in house. The main positive comments were the pleasing behaviour of the staff and... More

Had a Christmas night out here this weekend and can honestly say that the good was very disappointing. I know that as a general rule, mass catered Christmas events never have the best food, but with it being Whinstone View I had high holes, as I have had lovely meals her in the past. However the food was barely edible.... More
