Food was OK but nothing spectacular.
Very cold as we were sat at the front door with door wedged open (presumably to prevent having to touch the door when coming in) but we were freezing during our meal.
Waiting staff weren’t that friendly

Wouldn’t rush back

Looked forward to our visit. Greeted by 2 very miserable looking staff one was the manager. No smile or any chat it was like we were an inconvenience to him. Placed our order when the food came again staff were acting like they did not want to be there. The manager started complaining to us about the current government eat out scheme & how annoying it is for him.... something we're not interested in hearing about on a night out for a meal. Food was nice but the whole night was waste we both wished we went somewhere else.

My partner and I have visited the Whiski Rooms a number of times for tastings and dinner and have always had a great experience which is why we decided to go there to celebrate my dads birthday recently. The Whiski Rooms did not disappoint with the staff, food and atmosphere being great as always!

Lovely ambient setting with a selection of the finest whiskeys and wine in town. We went for steak and upgraded our chips to the truffle oil and parmesan which were naughty and very nice. The service was fantastic our waiter was very relaxed and informative and constantly in hand if we need to ask any questions. You could see he had a passion for whisky which my partner enjoyed. Food drinks and service was 10/10. I'd come back again if I'm ever in town.
