There's always something happening here. Having benefited from a full refurbishment in 2011, the Whistle is a homage to the old railway track, which ran from Southwell to Rolleston. Next to Southwell's well-loved nature trail, it's the perfect place to stop for refreshment, whether it's within the sunny courtyard and garden, or next to a roaring fire on a winter's evening.
The Whistle is located in the beautiful, historic Minster town of Southwell and attracts many visitors all year round. Southwell is also lucky enough to host one of the Country's largest Folk Festivals every year and offers interesting and colourful music, stalls and dancing for everyone, young and old, to experience and enjoy over the ever-popular Festival weekend.
We have quiz nights every Tuesday and Sunday which have become a regular fixture for many of our locals, and offer the opportunity to win great cash prizes and drinks vouchers. Come early to get a seat, but if you are a bit late don't worry - there is also plenty of extra seating outside in the heated courtyard and external speakers so you don't miss those tricky quiz questions!
Jo and Ollie invite local talent to perform during regular open-accoustic sets throughout the year, so if you are itching to perform and demonstrate your musical talents, or just would like to come and enjoy some toe-tapping fun, please check out our facebook page to find out what's happening and when!
