My mum and I decided to go here as it had not long been refurbished. We had heard good reviews through the grapevine since we are locals.
Quite disappointed to say the least.
When we entered the restaurant although the waitress was very welcoming and friendly, the service was very rehearsed and try hard. So much in fact that, when being shown to our table my mum stopped to say hi to someone she knew, I went on ahead and hadn't even sat down but the girl was trying to take our drinks order.
We ordered drinks then had to wait 20 minutes for them. We were ready to order food when the drinks came but the girl walked away befoe we could tell her. We then waited a further 40 minutes for our food. It was only a baked potato and a burger. It wasn't particularly busy this day but we did notice the table next to us came in after us, ordered after us and were served their meal and finished it before us. They also had time to send food back due to the quality when it arrived in front of them.
The food itself was average. It wasn't fancy but if youre in the area and looking for somewhere to dine The West Port Hotel is a nice place to stop as youre passing.
I dont think i'd hurry back due to the service and the wait for food though.
