Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We arrived 1/2 an hour early but they still managed to seat us. Once we worked out the on line ordering service it was quick and easy. Food and drinks came out quickly and even though we wanted to order a special platter with out the alcoholic drinks they still managed to accommodate us by allowing us to pay for the platter in-house. Wonderful place and staff and the food is great, tasty and filling. Would highly recommend you check it out.

I was treated to a lunch here today and had a beef sandwich which was pleasant, but a little disapointing. The lettuce served with it had obviously been on the plate when the cheese was melted and so was a little odd. The sandwich itself was half the size of the equivelent for the price at Subway, and wasn't as nice - and with only the wilted lettuce, it could have done with some more of the salad that you'd have got from Subway. What you are paying for is a far better atmosphere and setting than a fast food joint, but I'd take the better food over a better location most times. We didn't try any of the German food or beer that was on offer, that seems to be the specialty of the house, but I'd be interested to come back and do so on another occasion.

A work colleague was having her wedding reception at the west and as we were attending the evening reception we decided to book a table for dinner. We really enjoyed our meal and liked the atmosphere in the restaurant, great buzz. We will definitely come back and sample more beers. The waitress was lovely, but don't know her name.

Stopped by here today with a friend for a drink. As per previous review this is certainly not one of my favourite bar stops in Glasgow and certainly no improvements in customer service shown this time. However, a good friend wanted to try this after a walk around the green. After having reviewed their website we decided on a bottle of white wine. On arrival there were a lot of tables outside which we were happy to have, however seats could have been dried off by staff who wete inside doing nothing! Popped inside and managed to speak to a barmaid to ask for a bottle of white to be told not able to order a bottle as they wete not allowed outside! £17.95 for a Haus Wine (German theme place!)Chose a table outside only to find we had to go through a longwinded process of ordering by mobile phone. As we couldn’t order a bottle we had to order a small bottle for £5.50 (1 glass)!?? So why are they serving small bottles and not bottles?? When we asked the barmaid she just shrugged her shoulders and said ‘I know but not allowed it’s stupid’! Ended up paying £22 for 4 small plastic cups of wine when I could have had a bottle for £17.95! Total rip off!!. With the second order would like to say that the waiter in purple shirt needs to change his arrogant attitude when serving drinks at the table. As per previous review this place is pathetic. Web site clearly needs to be updated to inform customers of purchasing alcohol in outside seating area and again identified a big training gap evident with uninformed and arrogant waiting staff. Will not be back or recommend to others!

We did enjoy our meal from the very limited food menu currently available to within reason but had an issue because although we had booked a table we were unable to order on our mobile phone due to being ancient and only having GAS powered old phones. This was an issue and our waitress despite being someone who has been there for ages seemed unable or reluctant to tell us what was on this very limited menu. Did not know what to do and asked her manager and surprise surprise came up no problem with a paper menu (presumably destroyed after our use). Meal was fine and pretty much as usual, no cruets on table (though you were asked what you required and did get in sachets, so fine) presumably due to Covid, which I hope will not remain this way after things get back to normal but we will see. When asked if they had some German mustard as we always have when eating here the reply was , no but we do have English mustard. (Hello ! thought you were a German eatery). Was surprised to see that staff did not wear masks at all and although I could not fault the distance of tables which was good I do think the staff should be in masks. All in all we have always eaten here when on a trip of around 70 miles each way to Glasgow until things get back to more normality here we will not bother to visit again soon. Though it is fair to say we will be back to eat again eventually, hopefully.

Thanks for taking the time to post a review of your recent experience at WEST. Our venue was closed for four months and we have reopened under very different operating conditions, so we apologise if you encountered a few teething problems and didn't enjoy certain aspects of our new customer experience. Our limited menu is a result of us having to limit the number of chefs in the kitchen due to social distancing measures, but we're glad you were still able to find something you like. We have had to introduce single use condiments as this it it seen as best practice to support infection control. Unfortunately this means we now have to offer a more limited range. We're sorry to hear you won't be returning during these challenging times but we hope you take care and we'll look forward to welcoming you back in future when these measures have relaxed. Thanks again Gillian WESTie

The service in this place is 2nd to none Sean and Lisa run this place in such a professional elegant and relaxed way. There's never any pressure, your never rushed you have your drinks come quickly and your meals come just when you want them. If you need time between courses just ask its always accommodated food is great and always good quality. Its not top notch fancy restaurant quality. Thats not what West is about its about the experience of high quality drink and food in relaxed welcoming and comfortable surroundings. Highly recommended.

We visited the Beer Garden on Tuesday 7/7. The afternoon was enjoyable and service was fine. However, it is now almost a week since being there and still no £40 deposit returned despite being told it would take 48hours. Still waiting. Disappointed. Michael Nellany

Beer: Oh yeah! Cider: Good Water: Good Food: Nope This is a cool spot. Wide open space with a lot of table settings, high ceilings and a very inviting environment. Decor and ambiance aside, this is a business that should stick to brewing and consider hiring a third party if they plan to continue to serve food. The service was friendly but incredibly slow and it appeared to be very disorganized. During this time, it's understandable that this may be the case for a lot of locations, so that's not a deal breaker. The deal breaker is the food. The only thing going for this place was the great beer. The steak was so sub-par that it needed ketchup. The charcuterie board.... borderline a joke. But, on second thought, they did have great pretzels. A good combo with a good pint... I guess.

Been for food and drink 4 times. Pizza, very small for £8, schnitzel average, no crispy onions at all and small portion for £11. Pretzels and staff lovely. Below average for the price. Beer good tho. Really want to like this local but finding it hard. Will be back for beer but get a takeaway on way home. Sorry.

Due to COVID, you need to order by your phone which isn’t unique during these unusual times however this is certainly the worst experience I’ve had so far. You need to pay each time you order something so in a 2 hour visit for 5 people I made 7 different transactions entering my email address and credit card details. The order of 5 main courses came out and 2 out of the 5 were wrong because apparently the kitchen don’t see all the details of your order. I’ve eaten here quite a few times in the last several years and there were less staff in yesterday than I’ve ever seen. So are west on the green using COVID to reduce their staffing costs and leaving the labour up to the customer. It certainly felt like that as I spent more time with my phone in my hand than talking to the people around me. I will not be back during COVID. Outside all the food as usual average bit even more limited selection at the moment. Staff and atmosphere good. Julie

Absolutely horrible. Went with my friends for a pint and was hoping to have a good time, when from nothing a blonde security guy started to fight with a customer and a woman went to separate them and the security guy just hit the woman right in front of everyone, I still can’t believe that this happened and honestly, what a horrible experience. Made me so anxious and insecure in that place. We ordered a burger and the order never came because the kitchen was already closed, but no one told us that (even though we paid for the burger), after a long time, we asked a waitress and she said that they cancelled our order and just then, a woman came with the card machine to give us our refund. The security guys were basically throwing us away in a very rude manner after 10pm, we had to literally chug our beer. It would be smart to go into people’s tables 30 min BEFORE closing and advise people to finish their orders, instead of accepting new ones and forcing people to leave their drinks there, or drink in such a hurry. Sad, sad night. Would not recommend and I’m never coming back.

Great service from Davie and Gillian and the WEST Team for my mum's funeral reception. It was a tricky time with new and changing lockdown restrictions but they pulled out all the stops to make sure we had a lovely lunch. Home made sausage rolls went down very well by everyone! And the vegan/veggie selection hit just the spot. All in all, tricky times which they handled very well.

The Worst Würst! I usually visit West for the excellent beer but this time we decided to give their menu another go. On paper it sounded promising enough as pub grub, but the reality was simply awful. My hot dog variation came on a toasted stale hotdog bun and the average size bratwürst was hidden by a concoction of sweet onions. There was a dude ashet of chunky chips which were pretty inedible unless you were hungry. I had asked for mustard and sachets of yellow Heinz rubbish were delivered, rather than the anticipated German senf. My wife’s chicken sandwich was edible but uninspiring. At £11-50 for my bratwürst and £12-50 for a sub KFC chicken sandwich we felt we were overcharged for what was cheap ‘carnival lot’ food. When they have such a fantastic premises and such wonderful staff and genuine German Reinheitsgebot standard bier, you would think getting their sausages and mustard right might be the easy part!

Reserved a table for 9:30pm. Turned up slightly earlier to find the menu and payment is online. Alas, my phone was juices out from being out all day. When I approached the bar staff to order I was told the kitchen was already closed, despite it being 8 minutes before the 9:45pm deadline. I politely explained this, but was handled with a surly barman who obviously didn't like the fact a customer is right. The same barman came to our table and served our drunks like we were really not welcome, turned away and stomped off without any basic polite, thanks. You can get away with this poor service and pull a strop. You may tell the chef to do something to the food to a customer you dislike. But, you won't get customers to return again. Reviews like this, will point this out to other customers. Remember, Bad reviews kill business. Any customer is a valued customer from first to last, even if they arrive 8 minutes before the kitchen closes. The other staff were polite and friendly.

We were a party of 4 who came for lunch. 3 of us got pizzas and the other got the wiener schnitzel. The pizzas were really poor. Cheese was like cheddar def not mozzarella, tomato base lacking and the size was tiny. Not worth £8 for a Margherita. Tasted ok like a £1 Asda pizza tastes ok when you are hungry. Suggestion don't offer pizza unless they are actually decent. For the other dish the potatoes were undercooked, schnitzel fine but not great. Otherwise we like the venue, beer is good, and the sun was out, so still enjoyable and will return for drinks, probably not the food though.
