West beach has always been one of our favourite restaurants to eat locally and one of the places we always choose for special evenings, for myself and hubby and with the family. We have visited many times since it has opened, paying full price and also when we have been lucky enough to a deal through table pouncer. Both ways... More

We have been here on a work evening do some time ago and for coffee and thought we would try it out again today for lunch. Unfortunately we hadn't booked but they accommodated us quickly with a table by the open doors with a great sea view within about 10 minutes. The staff were excellent. The food was outstanding -...

After using this restaurant frequently in the past was bitterly disappointed with quality of service. After very long wait the starter arrived at the same time as the main course - although we could see it sitting on the kitchen counter for at least 15 minutes. Had to ask the waiter to give plates for the starter and had to... More

Arrived at 2000hrs on a Friday evening in a party of four. Specials menu was already unavailable as already sold out. When tried to order off a la carte menu were told that 30% of the dishes advertised were unavailable because a pre-booked party had reserved the seafood. This party had not even arrived at the restaurant & if they... More

We only wanted a pit stop at the Westbeach, and sat on the area outside to the front of the cafe. A tea and an appletiser was around £6.50, which to my mind is extortionate. It blows my mind that places can charge around £3.00 for a tea! The view is lovely, just looking out on the beach and the... More

My partner and I were very impressed... initially. We had booked and were given a lovely table right by the open doors (weather was gorgeous) and the view was fantastic. We were served in good time and the staff were friendly. We both had the scallops to start. I am a massive fan of scallops and found this to be... More

We went for a special evening meal last night and it was without doubt the best meal we have ever had. The staff are fantastic, nothing is too much trouble and they all seem genuinely happy to help. I had Scallops to start which were just amazing and then Steak for main course which was the best steak I have... More
