|We had a meal here last week, I was a little wary, because I had read a few less than complimentary things about the food here. However, many of my friends eat here regularly and are very happy with the food and the service. We were seated quickly by friendly and helpful staff. The service was quick and efficient. the food was excellent value, presented well, and nice and hot. It had all been freshly prepared and was very tasty. Everyone in the restaurant seemed to be happy with their food, and it all looked and smelt wonderful. If you are expecting haute cuisine and high fashion decor, this is not the place for you. But it you are after a very nice meal in a homely & friendly environment you won't be disappointed.|

|Most restuarants by the law of averages occasionally get things wrong. My wife, Daughter and her partner and I had Sunday lunch here today. We all ordered the Sunday roast beef. Unfortunately the beef was chewy, fatty and with gristle. So as you know, we are people who usually avoid making a fuss, however this meat was not good. I quietly and politely told the waitress and she informed the manageress. Our plates were removed and we were invited to make a new order, choosing two beef steaks, a pork steak and a salmon dish. We subsequently ate our meals, all, apart from the pork, being mediocre. After, we were presented with a bill for the full price of our meal. Which was substantually more than what it would have been had we had the Sunday roast. We were offered a bottle of wine in recognition of the situation, however this amounted to considerable less than the additional cost of the meal. In the meantime another table had complained about the quality of the beef. I spoke with the manageress and it was her attitude that has prompted me to write this. She insisted that there was nothing wrong with the meat and that no other customers had complained. I was made to feel as if I was out of order. The meat was of such poor quality it would have been wrong not to have mentioned it. We were most disappointed and will not be returning. We all get it wrong sometimes, perhaps an admission would have been appropriate. To finish on a positive, the waitresses were just great, we only hope they realised that we were not complaining just for the sake of it.|

|Poor service and under-staffed. Those staff present really not bothered and no management to be seen. The menu proved to be bland despite being a beautiful old building. Other people were complaining at the bar over the wait while we were there. We left without waiting for our main meals after over an hour's wait. Definately won't be returning to The Whittington or recommending to friends.|

|Called in for a meal on a Wednesday night. Pub was full and surprisinly busy, sadly there was a 2 hour wait for tables so we went elsewhere. Clearly a very popular pub.|

|Visited on 7/11/09. A 14th Century Inn on the A449. The building is historic and very atmospheric as one expects from somewhere with much history. The building is picturesque and the manor was owned by Dick Whittington's grandfather in the early 14th century. |
Had a meal here. The fayre was fair to good, but nothing special considering it was £6.95 for a veggie burger. It was quite busy on the saturday night I was there, but it suffers from being a chain establishment in my opinion. I didn't sample the beer, but my house red was a pleasant merlot.
Considering what the plac is, it has th potential to be much better.
