Coffee, beers and a big menu on High St
There’s a nice little buzz going on in High St...See our handpicked guides to the HunterValley
with the guys from The Blind Monk moving on in.
The Whistler (no ski resort story here, owners Phil and John just thought it sounded good) is offering Maitland-ites the chance to get a taste of some quality craft beers, coffee and a big menu that’s all about sharing and having a good night out.
The guys have done an awesome job to refresh what was a pretty run down and massive space. Managing to not over style or under play the now restaurant/bar and cafe venue it's a nice combination of comfy and inviting. The choice of low and high seating suits all drinking, eating and socialising styles so whether you’re up for a quick brekky bite from the front window or an afternoon session there’s a space you’ll fit nicely into.
There’s much to love about the menu and lists all the things you love, like the trusty old Chilli Chicken Wings, Porcini Mushroom Arancini, Salt and Pepper
Squid and Burgers galore. Then there are those pizzas. Coming in the Standard 12” or the Massive 15” these beauties are not just big in size but big
Whilst there is a hint of The Blind Monk vibe Phil and John have managed to give The Whistler its very own personality and something unique to the High St scene.
