Popped in for a drink whilst staying locally. It's a great little pub with good quality beer and food. The food looked quite dear so we didn't eat but I suppose you pay a premium with it being in West Bay!..

We visited the West Bay Hotel last Saturday 11th February. Initially I had asked for a cosy corner but once settled in our seats it was apparent that two of us were feeling a draft. On advising a member of staff we were soon, without issue, moved to another suitable table. On first look the menu seemed quite limiting but... More

Had the scallops with dried out cold belly of pork, not a good combination. The staff were delightful and overall after a lovely drive getting there not such a bad day. I think we'll return but I'll choose something else next time. Doggie friendly, I appreciate that.

We both had the roast for lunch, shared a sticky toffee pudding. Wonderful food and at £10 for a roast, great value. Wine was also excellent and very reasonably priced. The staff were very friendly from beginning to end. Shame to leave and go back out into the rain!

We called in for a lunch purely by chance, and we were certainly not disappointed. The service, the food, and the dining area were all top class. We hope to frequent this top venue on a regular basis in the future.

Spent a weekend at the West Bay with two other couples recently. Ate in both nights, selecting mains, and some starters, from the daily fish board. The food was really excellent, and all the staff were friendly and very efficient. Breakfast was also really good. The disappointment lay in the bedrooms. Really spacious, large bed, but "rough round the edges".... More

Easily the best place in town, its where all the locals go! All of the staff are super friendly and caring. The landlord and lady are a lovely couple and really care about the quality of their food and the service given. My partner and I come here all the time and are never disappointed. I have never known a... More
