Nice girls night out, live music was really good but it was pretty empty for a Friday night. I’m assuming that’s because the festival was on and it’s also the weekend of the north west so to be fair the town was pretty quiet. The food was really good as always in the Whig

We arrived slightly early for our booking but the staff were so inviting and pleasant they asked us if we'd like to take our table now instead of sitting waiting. They also took us to a perfect corner booth (which i had requested upon booking as it was mine and my partners first anniversary). The food arrived quickly and looked amazing, and the service was second to none, very pleasant but also not too overbearing as some wait staff can be. The food itself was so delicious and I would definitely come back here to eat again. Next time though, I'll save room for dessert!

Dined here with a group of friends having pre-booked a table via the website. Arrived slightly early to find our table ready and a very efficient and slick service by the friendly staff. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. Added bonus was the male singer/song writer playing during the evening. Would certainly recommend the Northern Whig for food, drinks and atmosphere.

We had an excellent meal at The Northern Whig, very pleasant and helpful waiter Victor looked after us extremely well, good range of food available, lovely laid back atmosphere and lighting, (the live music act was good but a bit loud for my taste). Overall a great evening out and will be back!

Haven’t been at the Whig for a while so was pleasantly surprised at the new decor. The food was very good, value for money. The serving staff were very friendly, service was a bit slow but with the crowd in only to be expected.

We ask for a pudding menu and waited 20 mins and never came. So we asked for the bill. That was the only disappointing part of the meal.
