Having been here last year I pre booked for the 2 nights we were in the area although the young girl said there was no booking - not I’m sort I can’t find your booking - just a flat there is no booking. But we...did get a table and James served us well and checked that the booking was in for the next night. I wish we hadn’t bothered. The young girl was unhelpful and made us feel like we were a bit of a nuisance from the offset of our meal . The meal was ok - but to be quite honest I couldn’t wait to leave. Not sure what to make of it really. I guess it had been a long day and we were one customer to many 😒😒😒More

It was easy to find some gluten free options here, so recommended for coeliacs. We sat on the top deck and watched the sunset with cocktails- beautiful! Both of us thought the food was good, but the location made it fantastic. Thank you

We visited on a Tuesday and Friday lunchtimes On the Tuesday, the service and food was lovely. My partner had fish and chips , the fish was chunky and cooked lovely. My pork steak was cooked right and the sauce lovely. Move forward to Friday...and it was the opposite. Service for drinks was really slow and after our drinks had sat on the bar with noone seeming interested in bringing them, we fetched them. We actually prefer to wait at the bar for drinks but were told they would be bought to us. I had the fish and chips after seeing how good it was on Tuesday. It was so different- a much smaller piece of fish which was very thin and the batter was soggy and greasy. I could only eat the fish and noticed another guest didn't eat much of theirs either. Tuesday gets 5 stars but Friday only 3. We holiday regularly in Westward and have always had nice food here, but the inconsistency really surprised us. Were there 2 different chefs with different standards??More

Visited family in Bideford and wanted to eat out on a Monday night so they booked us a table for 6pm Restaurant very popular, busy for a Monday night Lovely waitress, very attentive Husband ordered the breads and the prawn cocktail not knowing how big...the prawn cocktail was, he still managed it though! And followed up with the habenero chilli ribs, the waitresses warned him that they were hot, he absolutely loved them and the heat level. They are very hot! Proceed with caution and only opt for if you can handle the heat and the impact the next day! I had babaganosh and pitta, the cod and chips, biggest bit of cod I think I’ve ever eaten. It was so tasty. Our family members had the seafood pasta and the buttermilk chicken and chips We all loved our food. Fabulous portions and the view was amazing. It’s standard pub grub but very nicely done. It’s not cheap, and you def pay more than most pubs but was worth it. Would def go againMore
