Call in on the way bike on a bike trip, was made to feel so unwelcome that we did not even bother to sit down. When there are so many other great eateries in the area why stay in a place like this.

Food took ages to come out and the staff were needy when we first entered the establishment. Can we not just have a moment before being pestered to take menus and sit down?? Also the owner was jumping from table to table have loud and rude chats with guests. Fair enough if he knows them well but when customers are... More

How can you not like Whitehouses! Absolutely superb dinner with friends - service was superb as always, and our meal 5* - can't compliment the staff and chef enough. My choice for Sunday lunch and an evening dinner with friends and family. Give your self a big pat on the back - excellent evening👍

Staying up at Markham Moor on a cold February night we ventured out to the nearest eatery. They turned us away saying they were a 'bit busy', tho we would have been willing to wait. Lucky for us the barmaid kindly directed us to Whitehouses. They were heaving with people, but made us welcome , sat us down with a... More
