A lovey restaurant on our doorstep that has been a focal point on Middle Row for some time now. There's always always a great range of food on offer with a varied specials board, pizza, fish sometimes making it difficult to chose. We went out as a group all choosing different dishes all enjoying our meals immensely. We variously had... More

We were a group of 16 including children dining on a Saturday night. We had pre-ordered our meals the week before as requested by the staff, which we were happy to do. All dishes that arrived were correct. My cod was substituted for bream as cod wasn't available. I was very happy with that. The staff were excellent, always there... More

The staff were lovely and although the place was busy it felt like they most certainly made time for their customers, many of which they seemed to know very well. And this is understandable - if it was local to you then you would surely visit quite often. For coeliacs there were items on the menu marked as Gluten Free.... More

Have come here numerous times and it is lovely. The owners are extremely kind and friendly and try so hard to make sure everything is good and ok with the meals. The food is delicious and lots of options to choose from but could do with a vegetarian special meal as I haven't noticed one before. If you are visiting... More

This was our third or fourth visit. I wonder if it has changed hands? The service was good but the atmosphere lacking. Food alright but lacklustre. I hope it picks up because I have fond memories of it.

Visited Whistlers for the first time in a while. We had lunch and it was super, the food was tasty and beautifully presented, along with great service. We hadn't booked, the restaurant was very busy but we were fitted in and made to feel very welcome. Prices are always good value at Whistlers.

Whistlers never fails to please. The menu changes with the season and the dishes are consistently good. The friendly and efficient staff make it a pleasure to visit whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Nice selection of wine at sensible prices and there are 'specials' nights in the week - a steak night and a fish 'n chips night. Upstairs... More

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
