Whinstone Bistro sits in a lovely environment of smart holiday log cabins. Sadly the Bistro doesn't live up to it's location. The menu was far too varied to convey quality - they should reduce it and serve better quality and less items. There were lazy short cuts - the spaghetti was tagliatelle and the lamb was served with shop bought... More

Celebrated our Ruby Wedding Anniversary here on New Year's Eve with friends. Excellent night, only a couple of negatives, the music while we were eating was much too loud for us to hold a conversation, I'm sure this could have been turned down until the disco started! And we were crammed in like sardines! Apart from that it was a... More

Always a nice place to visit but they need to be more specific on detail in the menu. Ordered Cod with detail as being herb crusted, no mention of type of herb and was that sweet it spoiled the taste of Cod. Waitress staff could not explain what the sweetness was. Think Waitress staff could do with menu training. Rest... More

When we got to the bistro we were told that the Xmas Fare wasn't available as it was... More

Visited Wrays Barn for our Christmas Party night on Friday 16th Dec. The venue looked pretty enough decked in fairy lights but the food was a total disappointment. Soup was served in tin camping cups, although quirky the soup was absolutely scorching hot and stayed tasteless after several applications of salt & pepper. Unfortunately I left most of this as...

Hi DanDareNYorkshire, Thank you for taking the time to review Whinstone View. I'm sorry to read we did not meet your expectations. I am however surprised to read your comments as I have had nothing but excellent feed back from all of our Party Nights. A lot of time and effort has gone into these nights, and we have a... More

Another visit to this establishment, not my choice, and was, again, disappointed by the quality of food. Meats and fish overcooked, school meal presentation and a mix of vegetables- some over and some undercooked. The staff are friendly enough but that does not really compensate for the uninspiring food.

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
