Only 2 stars for atmosphere but that’s only due to regulations with low music, very subdued. Shame. Great staff, thank you. Food lovely. Best of luck and hoping you can reopen in 6 weeks. Sad times.
Good wholesome food reasonably priced and pleasant service
Lovely food & cocktails. Felt a very safe environment to enjoy a meal.
Cannot fault this place, been coming for years every Sunday and never had one bad complaint!!
Low score on atmosphere only because they weren't permitted to play music, so difficult to get into the spirit of Christmas
Your host was so good, not a huge personality but very very good at his job, showing us all of the safety measures and making sure track and trace was sorted. As a table who all work for a big competitor, we admired the service he gave us as we came in and it was one of the things we all remarked on. The rest of your staff were lovely and attentive, food was great, a good start to our night out.
We have been visiting northern wig for a good few years now, never disappointed

Food and service as always was excellent.
Fab service and beautiful meal 😋
Beautiful food , service excellent
I was served beer while waiting for my date to join at my table. Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond her control my date could not join me. I requested to order food anyway as I was drinking. I was refused and also told I must leave immediately, even before i had finished my drink. Staff member was extremely rude even though I explained the situation to her.
First class friendly service from start to finish. I don’t say this often, but would highly recommend.
I visit the Northern Whig every Christmas with my mum as our Christmas lunch out. Didn't think we would get this year because of covid but thank goodness we didn't miss out. The bar/ restaurant area is well spaced out for social distancing and we never felt vulnerable. The food, drinks and service were as always, amazing! Thanks again for another lovely Christmas lunch that my mum and I look forward to every year In the run up to Christmas!

Thisbisbabgreat bar for food and relaxing with family for a meal. Staff very friendly and helpful. Recommend the place to anyone to visit.
Staff excellent,meal could have been a bit warmer and Roast potatoes a bit rubbery but I still enjoyed it
My friends and I have visited on so many occasions so we were quite surprised that the food was poor! Turkey was average and had to ask for new roast potatoes as they were hard... we will come back and hope next time it is just as good as normal.
