Whistlers Bar is based in the market town of Pickering, North Yorkshire and is regularly described as a “hidden gem”; specializing in great Cocktails and worldly Gins, all served by knowledgeable staff in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. The bar holds a weekly Friday night happy hour (8-9pm) as well as regular live music. During the summer months, Whistlers also has a large outside seating area for you to enjoy cocktails in the sunshine (weather permitting...)

Whistlers stocks over 50 different gins from around the corner to across the globe, with everything from Bombay Sapphire to Deaths Door! All gins are paired with an array of garnishes and different tonics. Here you are guaranteed to find the perfect serve for you.


If gin is not your thing, do not fear, the bar stocks a wide selection of spirits as well as bottled beers and even a monthly special draft beer brewed on site. If you’re lucky you may even catch a glimpse of the elusive brewer!

If you are looking for something a little different, Whistlers hosts regular gin tasting evenings, during which a gin company representative will join you for the evening. Talking you through a selection of gin-based drinks, this gives you an insight into how the gin is made and a rare opportunity to meet the distillers. Canapes are even provided for when all the gin kicks in! Tickets are £20 per person.
Tickets and further information can be provided by emailing laura@whistlers-bar.com.

Cocktail masterclasses and private room hire are also an option at this venue, prices vary depending on group size, please email for more details.
