I visited the Westenra Arms hotel for the first yesterday evening with my husband and grandparents. We got a table quickly, the staff were excellent and we were served promptly.. The food was fabulous and so was the atmosphere. Although the bar got quite crowded it didn't get too noisy. We had a great evening and will definitely be back.

We ate here one night mid week August. We were actually looking for another restaurant and asked a staff member who was standing outside for directions. She said we should try their food and that their 'west chicken' dish (i think it was called that) was fab. We popped in and were surprised how busy it was - which is... More

The rooms to the front of this hotel do not fit the function of a hotel room: to grant a good night's sleep. There is a lot of traffic to the front, and that noise filters through. Worse, there is a pub venue in the basement below, producing a lot of music. When the music stopped at 12:15 a.m., I... More

Staff are so friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to help us when we went in with two small children carrying trays and bringing jugs of juice to the table. It is really central and welcoming. We had Sunday lunch, it was just ok, good enough value but nothing special. Would like to try the bar food,... More

Food was good , very busy place . Quite comfortable , service a bit slow but overall a nice experience . We were on a business lunch and we found it easy enough to fit all 8 of us at one table . A bit dark !
