First visit and certainly won't be the last . Friendly welcome from the staff and a lovely atmosphere. . The menu has some great choices and our food was delicious . Our vino was also tip top and everything was reasonably priced .

Have dined here several times and never been disappointed. The setting is really nice and the bistro is charming which contributes to the relaxed feel of the place. The menu is varied with plenty of choice. The "early bird" dinner menu is particularly good value and changes with the season. The traditional Sunday lunch is excellent. Coupled with helpful friendly... More

Attended a Wedding venue here recently and although the setting itself was really nice the Venue (Wrays Barn) was a disappointment, we couldn't hear the speeches and the Hostess wasn't remotely interested. As for the Gents toilet - There was NO Hot Water, The Cold Tap was loose and the Soap dispenser was balanced on a chair. Thankfully the food... More

Went for our Christmas lunch with the "ladies who lunch," we are not easily impressed but all of us agreed this was the nicest lunch we have had in a long while and very reasonable for great food.

36 of us attended in the 1st of Dec 2016. We had the upstairs private room. All had preordered food. There were no complaints at all. My only suggestion would have been to change the piped music for Xmas tunes.....but that really is a very minor point.

Family get together Friday 25th November. Party of 10. No complaints from 10 adults that's got to be praise in itself. Food was lovely, wine was good and service excellent. If you want a meal in a great location, in a place that isn't part of a chain give this place a try.

The location and setting is second to none. Great ambiance and atmosphere, enhanced by a very good team of waiters and management. The fillet steak was first class, as were the sweet potato fries, served with a very good selection of vegetables. The one area I would recommend an improvement in is in the starter menu, it should include at... More

Visited midweek with friends. Its a beautiful setting whatever the weather. It was Wednesday which is steak night - 2 sirloin steaks with hand cut chips and salad plus a bottle of wine for £35. Really good value if a couple of you fancy steaks. Meal was nice . Desserts were too but a little pricey. Bar and waiting staff... More

The choice on the menu is vast and we had a fantastic meal, very friendly staff, quality food at a reasonable price, good mix of drinks, the restaurant is very good and the early bird menu is also good, well worth a visit.

Booked a meal at Whinstones View Bistro for my step daughters birthday. The bistro is really lovely and has a special atmosphere. A lady was singing quietly whilst we eat which just added to the ambience. The food was top quality and cooked to perfection. If there was just one small problem was the waitresses could have been slightly more... More
