I have been meaning to write a review for the West Cross for ages as my family and I eat there quite regularly, it is a no nonsense, value for money, decent place for pub food. It is not fancy or pretentious, but has freshly cooked favourites. The fish gougons are absolutely delicious, the calamari, is one of my very,... More

Evening meal here with the family of six adults & four children. Service was excellent even though they were busy. All the starters were excellent & nicely presented. Main courses particularly steaks were very good. Large portion sizes. Small fish & chips was quite large. Good choice of childrens meals. Very friendly helpful staff. Restaurant is on the sea front... More

It's been several months since we've visited the West Cross Inn, and this occasion was to have been an impromptu lunch. We had a short wait for a table in the restaurant, and ended up with a decent view across the bay: shame about the tide. The alarm bells should have rung when we saw a wedding reception was under...

Had a lovely table for two in the conservatory overlooking the seafront, perfect location for a sunny day. Received a warm welcome from the lovely owner. Starters were beautifully presented we had the creamy garlic mushrooms and the squid in tempura batter. We then moved On to the mains, the fish, you could tell how fresh it was and the... More

After staying away for a couple of years due to unfriendly staff I returned as I heard it had changed hands. Most things were fine but Ladies' toilet really awful.!! No towels or dryer just loo paper. Will not return until there is some improvement to these areas and bar which is very tired and scruffy.

Popped in with two young children for a spot of lunch! Was really impressed with the meals, not your normal pub fayre standard! Had to wait a bit which wasn't a problem as it was all cooked freshly! Can highly recommend the goats cheese and cranberry burger! The seven of us didn't leave anything and we were too full for... More

Having been told that this establishment was "under new management! - lol - a few of us called in, not for a meal I hasten to add, and whilst the previous manager was not there, the rest of the staff (some are his family) were sitting in their usual corner after their shifts. Known locally as "the zimmer and coffin... More

Went here with 3 others for my mothers birthday meal. We've never been here before but have always read good reviews, and from the outside it looks inviting so we assumed it would be a nice place to eat. The inside of the building is lovely, we sat in the Conservatory as it was a nice day and the waitress... More
