“Best Meal of our Holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

Looking from the outside it doesnt look much but inside the staff were very attentive, very friendly and the food was exceptional. My husband used to be a chef so hard to please at the best of times but he couldn't fault it and said wish we had gone earlier in the week and not on the last night of our holiday. Definately the best food out of all the places we went.

“Beautiful food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014 via mobile

On our last night of our holiday we decided as a group of 4 to have a wonder around the beautiful West Bay, after looking through the menus of the other eateries we decided to eat at the West Bay Hotel. We was not left disappointed. The food, the service and the pub was beautiful. I decided to order the surf and turf, which was steak (rare) and lobster. I couldn't fault it, steak was cooked perfect, and the lobster was tasty. My partner had the duck, he enjoyed it, the only down side he said was that there wasn't enough.. My two friends both had fish specials which were posted on the blackboards. Each friend enjoyed their meals. After our main, one friend decided to order pudding, a fruit crumble. After trying it I wished I had ordered one to.. A delightful meal with good friends, it was a great night to end our week away.

“The best restaurant in West Bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

We arived in West Bay early evening February2014. The weather was extremley bad and the tide was lashing over the Harbour walls. We had a meal booked in the West Bay Hotel and it was the best ever. Please try the food, and the Hotel.

“Busy Pub Restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

I was expecting more from this hotel. The bar was quite busy, several dogs and their people. The menu looked appealing but the duo of fishcakes appeared nice but other half left hers as it was not to her taste. I has mariners version of the ploughman's lunch and this was OK but lacked balance, ie Cornichons and other extras added little to the dish. Pudding was described to me as OK. The staff were pleasant but the service was very slow.
Overall I was slightly disappointed.

“A great plate of food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2014

We ate here recently while on holiday close by and were not disappointed. It's a great pub with a great atmosphere. There is a brilliant choice of fish dishes on the (many) blackboard specials. And lots of choices on the regular menus. One of us had the fish and the other a steak. Both meals were cooked to perfection and presented well. Staff are helpful, knowledgeable and very friendly. We left the West Bay feeling full, contented and so pleased we had come across this lovely eatery. We will return.......................
