My partner and I ate dinner here while visiting the Cotswolds. Lovely atmosphere, very friendly staff and excellent service. Plus the food was fantastic! We had roasted garlic and caramelised onion flatbread to start, then I had the venison and he had the beetroot pasta. All were delicious. Highly recommended 😊

Visited on a miserable wet Tuesday night but even so there were a fair number of people already dining. Thankfully they weren’t fully booked so we were shown to a table by the window. There were a fair number of people collecting pizzas during our time there. We took that as a good sign considering there is a dedicated takeaway... More

A top notch three course dinner for four from an a la carte menu to include coffee for £75 was a real bargain, We hadn't been to Whistlers for four years but we think the food was even better than our last visit. Great staff and excellent service throughout. Nothing was too much trouble and the food was excellent. This... More

Called in to Whistlers en route to Hook Norton Brewery. Myself and partner both indulged in a full English that was freshly and perfectly cooked. Just what we needed to brighten an otherwise damp, dull morning! Lots of people seemed familiar faces to the hosts which add to a very convivial breakfast. Lovely, thank you.

My wife and I were very pleasantly surprise when we came across Whistlers on our way through the Cotswolds. We got a friendly welcome and had two great coffees and complementary cookies.

Had a lovely visit to celebrate my daughters birthday, 4 adults and 2 children and we were all happy with our meal. My starter was a lamb spring roll which I would definitely recommend, I then had a burger with chorizo and fries, again really good. The children's menu was good, the usual pizza etc but the children loved it... More

We decided on this restaurant based on the reviews on here. The food was average, asked for a steak medium and it was just about blue, but the crab cakes were very nice. Service was good and quick.
