We has a lovely experience during our “not quiet Christmas lunch “ with friends. The food and service were both impeccable. The subtle but effective COVID 19 measures made the experience feel safe and comfortable. Would highly recommend.

Most fun I've had with my clothes. I'll remember those carrots and parsnips until the day I die. Nothing will ever compare

I booked Whiskers for their Sunday roast which was included in their set menu. The menu had a good variety of dishes and very well priced. I went for 2 courses for £20. The beef was cooked perfectly, amazing gravy and the roasties were super crispy. Would highly recommend and will definitely be back!

The food here is really well cooked and delicious. Service slow but worth waiting for. Atmosphere is lacking but a difficult space to make cosy and welcoming.

A tasty Sunday roast in a lovely ambience, despite not being able to have some music or a wine due to currant restrictions.

Favourite place in Stockbridge. Lovely atmosphere, fabulous choice of wines, and the food is absolutely fantastic. They take pride in using only the finest ingredients and serving food that is simply delicious. They are also dog friendly, which is an added bonus :)

3 of us ate here in the evening and all had different dishes. We all loved what we had. The staff were friendly and very helpful when choosing wine. The atmosphere was nice. Enough noise to be ambient but not too loud. The mains are a little pricey, so we will be saving this one for future special occasions.

The three of us all had three courses all of which were delicious. The chicken pate is to die for as was the venison and dessert. The wines were excellent and staff friendly and helpful. During these difficult times we also all felt very safe and comfortable. Highly recommend.

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.

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.
