What to expect at your next visit to Whistlers


We are excited to open our doors again for you on 2nd December! No doubt by now... we have all become accustomed to the changes and also realise.... that it is still possible to go out, relax and enjoy yourselves...... well what a relief for that. And although initially some of the changes might have seemed a bit stringent, we have also developed some very good practices which we plan to keep in place for some time to come. The end of the year is now not far away and seats are limited, so don't waste any time in booking your Christmas get together with us! Please remember that the "rule of 6" still applies with additional restrictions which means each table booked must be for people who are from the same household or who are in a support bubble. We are so excited to celebrate the end of 2020 with you very soon!!!!!



From 2nd December onwards Restaurant dining is available for lunch and dinner as follows:

  • Tuesday to Sunday 12pm-2.30pm and 5.30pm-10pm (last orders at 9pm)
  • Closed on Mondays
  • Christmas closure is as follows 24th, 25th, 26th, 27th, 28th December. 
  • We will re-open from the 29th December and be open for New Years Eve and New Years Day too!

While we are open for dine in customers, takeaway will only be available on an ad-hoc basis and pre-orders will no longer be possible. We apologise for this inconvenience and also want to acknowledge the incredible support we have received from many of you during each lockdown. We sincerely appreciate your ongoing support & understanding

Pre-booking tables is not essential but highly recommended to avoid disappointment. Please note that at times there may be a time restriction on your table, but we will always let you know if this is the case.
