Booked dinner here on Saturday 8th April 2017. The place was very busy; starters arrived quickly, one scallop starter with pea purée which was very salty; I shared an antipasti starter which was nice but a bit cured meat heavy, would have liked some cheese maybe - less would have been more in this case. It didn't come with bread... More

On arrival we were greeted in a friendly manner and sat in the bar and had our drinks brought over to us with menus, after 5 or so minutes shown... More

We have eaten here on many occasions over the years and have always found the food good, but it has grown over the years and lost some of its atmosphere and ambience! The meals are generously portioned and generally very tasty. The layout of the restaurant is open but with a very small bar area right by the front door,... More

My husband and I went here as a last minute booking not knowing much about the place. And what a find! We had dishes off the tapas menu (yes tapas in Sawley!!) and they were brilliant!!

As a small group of friends we catch up with each other 2/3 times a year at The Whitehouse for lunch , the food is always very good and great value for money . The restaurant itself is very pleasant if lacking in a bit of atmosphere . Staff are always pleasant
