Lovely place, very good decor, staff helpful, food well presented but steak pie was far to rich for my taste, shame as looked lovely. Everyone’s taste is different but felt like meal was a waste of money for me. Give this restaurant a try as it’s nice. It was my choice that was the problem.

Very disappointed in the service felt like we were a pain and not wanted . Took ages for service, when the food finally came out after a hour of being there it was cold and the vegetables were so hard felt like they were just blasted. Felt like and tasted like that our good had been standing around for a while. Did not say anything as just wanted to leave but have to say bitterly disappointed .

The ladies toilets, next to the kitchen, had a strong odour which permeated in to the restaurant area.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Whiski Rooms, amazing food.

Toilets could do with a bit of sprucing up.

Booked 2 weeks in advance all ok.
Email confirmation day before all good.
Arrived 10 mins early only to be informed our reservation had been amended to 1 1/2 hours earlier than booked. Fortunately they had a table free but in a cold window with a time limit. Not amended by me not impressed.

We made reservations for 7pm and the staff was nice enough to seat us when we arrived early. The table we got was really badly situated - I was half sitting in the hallway and kept getting bumped. I was not sure why we were given this terrible table when other seats available. The saving grace was our waitress..super bubbly and responsive. The Whiski Burger okay but not the best I've had... the restaurant itself was beautiful. Recommended for those with deep pockets who can afford the meals. Gratitude to the staff who were great.i just felt my seating ruined the experience.

Always love the food and service at Whiski Rooms! Go once a year with my dad for his birthday because we know it is always worth it! I love getting the whiskey tasting "Flights" and I love the atmosphere. I always seem more likely to order things I wouldn't normally just to "try something new" because I know it won't disappoint and they always do the steak right for my dad.

Great food and great service. We opted for the chateaubriand to share which at £60 is good value as this would be the price for 2 good steaks. Drinks choice was varied and they (as you would expect) have an amazing range of whisky includes the option for whisky flights.

Lovely restaurant, great staff. Fantastic setting, subdued lighting in a bistro setting. We had the Chateaubriand and it was cooked to perfection. The tiger prawns starter was really nice. Nice selection of whiskey cocktails as well as straight whiskey, but you'd expect that really.
Definitely recommend and recommend booking ahead
