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

We attended a christmas party here last night , and we were all appalled at what we were served with . The starter contained big bits of plastic, the main course ( Shepherd's Pie ) had such a strong offall flavour that I could not eat it, followed by a rainbow 'sponge' and cold custard that looked like a green...

Went to staff do at whinstone view last night. Was in barn not restaurant. School disco theme and menu did not look over interesting but thought whinstone view would put a homemade spin on it to make it more presentable. Not to be. Starters were passable, thankfully, but mains and sweets certainly not. Don't expect bulk cooked Christmas Fayre to... More

Visited here with friends on 28th November. Lovely atmosphere, very busy and the staff were excellent, can't fault the service. Fab menu, we all ordered different dishes and all were delicious. Whinstone view is set in lovely surroundings and worth a visit if you haven't been. I would definitely return. The only criticism I would make would be the chips.... More

Visited here with family in October, 3 children & 5 adults. The Sunday lunch was spot on, plenty of meat and a good selection of veg & potatoes. Very reasonably priced too. It was pretty busy, but enough staff on & we didn't have to wait long for anything. The service was excellent. One of the children was having a... More
