Super small restaurant in CN. Looks like a small cafe from the outside but the food is really, really good. Varied, creative and interesting menu. Fast , courteous table service, good wines. 100% recommended if you are in CN looking for somewhere nice for lunch.

Popped in mid week without a booking. Lucky to get a table as very busy, with good reason. Fantastic meal, tasty, freshly cooked and happy to alter the dish slightly to allow for disliking certain ingredients. Wonderful service from Matthew. Could not recommend enough!

We have been twice to this restaurant in recent weeks. Pleasantly surprised as in past years under different management I didn’t think much of it. However we have had two great meals, really enjoyed the atmosphere and attentive staff and had a great night out.

The restaurant had quite a wide menu, which suited us as we all wanted something different. The big choice didn't affect the quality. The staff couldn't do enough and the steak was the best in a while. We stayed at a hotel a few miles...More

A pretty much perfect dining experience! From the outside Whistlers might look a little small and odd but it was nothing but a pleasure from start to finish. The service was warm, welcoming and friendly (not to mention impeccable) The decor is a little quirky...More

There is parking in Chippy, it's in the main square so a small walk. You need to book in advance or you can just get shoved in :(
