Three of us had an exceptional meal here tonight. We dispensed with starters; two of us had the brill - three fillets of succulent fish with saute potatoes and a divine leek and bacon sauce. We chose vegetables rather than salad and were glad we did as we had yellow squash carrots peas and other greens all cooked perfectly. The...

Myself and my partner managed to get a table at very short notice today & we absolutely loved the Sunday roast, the pork was very Meaty & flavoursome , and the veg was cooked perfectly, the cauliflower cheese was delicious. Great attention to detail from the chef, service was quick and food was piping hot. Will definitely be returning 😁

There needs to be a classification that describes 'better than Average, but not as good as Very Good' because The West bay Hotel falls into that category , in my opinion I booked a room from their website that was described as having 'private bathroom' facilities! It's been a very long time indeed since I have used shared bathroom facilities,...

In the last month have dined here for a Saturday evening with the family & met for lunch with friends - very happy on both occasions! The Saturday evening the place was packed, fabulous atmosphere & excellent food. The staff couldn't have been more attentive, knowledgeable & at all times, extremely pleasant. The choices were outstanding. The wine list extensive....

We ate dinner here. Only one other table was occupied but the waitress didn't seem to want to serve us. We overheard her complaining about being short staffed. The meal was very ordinary, we had to ask for lemon and tartar sauce, I wanted butter but decided not to bother making another request. Felt it was pricey and was glad...

Haven't been here for 2 years and am regretting that lapse, I had calamari which was very tasty but would have liked more of a kick from the Szechuan spices. The main course was spectacular, stake and lobster all cooked perfectly and tasting great. Waiting staff were excellent, advising which cheeses to have and their advise was spot on.

We ended up here by accident as couldn't get into the restaurant we had planned to visit and I couldn't be happier. The menu was really varied and the steaks were to die for. I had surf & turf, which was a fillet steak and 1/2 West Bay lobster. I have never eaten such a fantastic plate of food. Hubby...

As four locals we were recommended to re-visit the West Bay Hotel with its new chef and excellent seafood. So we did. Our first waitress was unsmiling as she went through the motions and then brought our first courses so quickly we could hardly believe they were freshly cooked but hey! The calamari was very good and hot but the...

We booked here for the easter week-end for 3 nights. Nice big room, well positioned looking out over the beach. Staff could not be any more helpful. And as for the food, where to start. We ate there 2 nights - lovely food. Local fish specialities were amazing. Breakfast is a massive winner also. The place was always busy while...
