Whitestone Pub

Recommended Posts

Have to give a mention to The Whitestone pub in Ballasalla. Since under new ownership the food is top drawer and at reasonable prices too.

It went so far downhill over the past 18 months we stopped going altogether but with a new chef and menu they've really upped their game. Decent sized portions, good quality menu and pub prices too, not restaurant ones like many similar establishments around the island.

 

Two adults and a kids meal, with drinks, £32. Granted it's not as cheap as many places across but for the rock it was good quality/value and we left stuffed.

It's still Heron and Brearley isn't it?

Yes but it's got new managers and chef and improved a lot.

I'd love to meet someone who lives in Ballasalla. Really just to ask them, why?

my son has worked as a bar man/waiter whilst back from University for the last 3 managers/owners and has said on several occasions that the current owners are by far the best that he has worked under due to many reasons such as they are friendly but very serious when it comes to doing a good job at the same time. Always busy for evening meals and always a great atmosphere with a variety of different dishes on the menu. will definately be checking out The Whitestone in the near future!

Very true. We go in every week now as the food, service and prices are spot on. Even simple things like at seat service for drinks while you are eating, something the last owners clearly thought was unnecessary, is a nice touch and a change from the usual IoM laziness.

Nice Specials board too. Changes regularly.

Went to the Whitestone for a family do today and have to say that most of us were not impressed at all with the food.

The staff are always good and the service was quick enough, but the food quality is nothing compared to what we have had on several occasions over the last few years.

We have had some beautiful meals there and it was a shock to encounter the quality of the meals today.

I hope it is a one off. We all have our bad days.

 We will try again though.

I think all H&B pubs now have identical menus courtesy of Jack Frosts.

I wish I could believe that you are wrong.:(
