Tasty meal; however, seemed to take quite a while to receive our mains (little over 45min after the order was sent to the kitchen). We were told this was normal.

Other than the fact that it was a bit overpriced for what you get, but we had a lovely dinner and a great night. The staff were very friendly, and the ambience of the place is warm and cozy.

We had a really wonderful time here. The food and service in particular were excellent, could not fault anything. So accommodating with extra vegetarian options and amazing value for what you get. Will be coming back here very soon.

The service was very slow - we waited over an hour. The food was fine but below expectations.

Amazing place, I chose the fish and chips which were the best I’ve had in a long time. They took good care of everyone in terms of safety. I really love it there.

We had been in for a drink last weekend and decided to book for lunch as we liked the atmosphere and friendly service.
Menu is quite small but does have a nice choice. Started with Chicken pate. It was so light but incredibly tasty, served with bread, light pickled and chutney. Followed with Salmon fillet which was nicely cooked and presented. My wife had fish & chips with minted crushed peas and tartare sauce. She liked the fish, the coating was nice and crisp and the haddock was lovely and moist, some of the chips were a little soggy as served underneath the fish. The chips unaffected were lovely. If ordering again I would suggest moving the fish off the chips. I had the chocolate fondant dessert, it was delicious. The service is friendly, as is the welcome. The food is beautifully presented. We will definitely return soon.

Thank you for a lovely lunch.

We enjoyed a wonderful Sunday lunch at an excellent, well spaced out table, with plenty room around it. Very good service and a delicious meal. Would thoroughly recommend.

It was a lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and great food but the price of drinks is so overly expensive it really detracted from all the other lovely things - single glasses of wine ranged from around £8.00-10 each (as much as a descent bottle in most supermarkets) for 125ml or 175ml and bottles started around £30 with the majority around £40-45 and some went much higher than that. We decided not to have more than one glass each due to the price and not because we didn’t want more. We had been hoping to try a few wines over the course of the night since it is a wine bar, but it just wasn’t possible because of the cost. I think offering more affordable drink options would be a huge improvement especially in a time where many people and businesses are struggling.

Good to be back at Whiskers and grateful to them for lockdown deliveries. Plenty of space between tables, waiter with facemask, gel in toilets and excellent food. Highly recommend a visit

Excellent meal - and not just for allowing us to escape the house at last.

Chicken Charlotte pudding (yup) was particularly delicious.

First outing since Lockdown and made use of the govt Eat out to Help out scheme. The tables were we'll spaced out and the staff wearing masks, we felt very safe. Not a rowdy bar, definitely more a bistro/cafe vibe. The service was good, wine lovely and food delicious. I had the lamb cutlets and they were very juicy and tender. Would definitely eat there again.

Super friendly staff with amazing food. Very knowledgeable on the wines and the recommendation for the Charlotte chicken was delicious. The food is on the pricier side, but we will certainly be back as the food was divine!
