As we have had lunch at Westbar a few times we thought since they were doing a Sunday Roast and we had family from out of town we would go there for Sunday Dinner.
Rang and booked a table for 4 adults and 1 child for 6pm.
Arrived around 10 minutes early, no problems was shown to our table and drink orders were taken.
When finally the drinks arrived we asked what the roast of the day was, ONLY TO BE TOLD THAT THEY HAD RAN OUT OF THE ROAST MEALS. Found this strange as the time on their board was from 5pm, don't a big crowd so really counld not understand how they had ran out.

When told that we would therefore cancel our booking and go else where we had another person come back and said that they could do the meal.

We decided that we would stay and try the roast and in the meantime ordered another round of drinks.

The guy that took the order forgot to bring us the drinks as we had to go to the bar and get them, and what peed us off was that he wasn't even worried that he had forgot them.

Meals arrived some 40 minutes after ordering them, decided not to worry about 2nd course or more drinks as by then it was getting to be 1 1/2 hrs of complete useless service.

They really need to put some serious training into the staff, none of them looked like they wanted to be a work, just a real sad place and this in turned gave a real bad atmosphere feeling.

Would I go back, ?????
Would I recommend it ?????

Place looks nice and is a good location for the rugby games but not much else.

Food was ordinary at best. I ordered the eye fillet - medium rare and it came out a solid medium well. Loaded with grissel as well. The "purée" that was supposed to come on the side was negligible. Just enough to annoy the cold veges. Wife had the bacon wrapped chicken but the chicken was so tiny. We came with a grabone deal but I would not spend my money here outside of that. Poor value. Not impressed.
