Whistlebinkies is under new ownership and is now known as The Smithy (from a Smiddy having been at that site in the 16th century). Very welcoming and friendly and serves excellent food at good prices.

We found this place because of their aggressive advertising campaign around town and in our B&B's filebook of local suggestions. On a cold icy night the warm ambience imparted by the yellowish lighting and dark wood furnishings welcomed us inside. Unfortunately the little woodburning stove...More
