“Always first class!”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

After living in Chipping Norton now for some 3 years, we have exhausted all the locally rated restaurants and all the gastropubs from Sawdays guide.
Whistlers is far more than just a restaurant, its part of the local communiity.

We have been fans of the best coffee & brownie, for quite a time, but now find that the food and service,
is just second to none.
We have brought our boys & their ladies, friends & visitors from London, & all over the country, , -- they all are very impressed and say how lucky we are to have this superb restaurant so close!

Not only is the food superb, thanks to the amazing skills of Mike and team,
but the friendly welcome & service really is the difference, nothing is too much trouble.

Richard & Jane, the very friendly owners work tirelessly to consistently provide the high standards,
ably supported by the very talented Matt, the manager and his excellent team, Ben, Tom, Molly go to great lengths to make sure you have a great experience whatever the occasion.

my Wife had her leaving party there last week for 20 to 30 people, and nothing left to chance,-- big well done Whistlers!

Sorry, but as a foodie, someone that demands proper chilled Wine & Fizz, excellent service every time,and first class food from eggs benedict for breakfast to Beef Strogonoff,
Whistlers -- is # 1 by a mile!!
you have our vote, thank you , .

“Better than its standard menu suggests”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

We were staying in the area and ate in Chipping Norton a couple of nights. We looked at a few restaurants and chose this based on tripadvisor reviews, we had looked at the standard menu outside which was a pizza and grills menu and the restaurant was very empty so wasn't overly tempted but based on the reviews we gave it a go. The restaurant soon filled up and we were obviously lucky to have secured the only table for 4 that wasn't reserved. The standard menu wasn't very inspiring but the specials board was. We shared some very nice sharing boards to start and the mains were very good as well, particularly the monk fish. Children were well catered for too. All in all a great little restaurant.

“Exceptional”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

A warm and welcoming small restaurant in the middle of Chipping Norton. Food at dinner was exceptional backed by friendly staff. Just wished I lived a bit closer so I could go back again. Highly recommended and great value for money.
