We sat in the beer garden and has some drinks which led to some snacks. The drinks were cold and well served with the white wine in a cooler. The snacks were hot and tasty. The only down side was, although it was very hot and sunny, we were asked to vacate the beer garden by 5pm via posters all... More

Hi Mags Thanks for leaving us a review on tripadvisor and I'm so glad that you found our wee gem of a garden. As you noted it is a real shame that we have to close it by 6pm - especially with the weather we are having just now - but that is the time restriction that we have on... More

We went for breakfast here just yesterday along with a couple of locals and they remarked how great the place looked after its refurbishment. For our part, we got a well cooked, good Scottish breakfast (do note the full menu is not available on opening) at a good price and although this isn't good news for the place itself but... More

My friend and I went here for an early evening meal and were very pleasantly surprised. The interior was beautifully done and the food was excellent and reasonably priced. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. We will go back.

I have been to the West Port on several occasions, usually for drinks, and always liked it. The other day I came here to have dinner with a friend. I got a burger with some fries and my friend had pulled pork. Both dishes were good and tasty. We also had desert, and here I have to say that the... More

Hello. I am sorry that you did not enjoy your meal with us. Having spoken to the staff on duty that day I do understand that as soon as we were made aware that the fish did contain bones and that this was unacceptable, we immediately made new and different meals for your family. I have taken the issue up... More

I don't know if I was just lucky, but the night I ate there I ordered liver and mashed potato and have to say it was unbelievably good. The mash was proper, home-made stuff (always take a gamble when you order mash in restaurants, in my experience) and the liver was cooked to perfection. The only shame was that I... More

Very friendly and efficient staff. Food reasonably priced. Menu obviously set centrally as it is exactly the same as The Westport Pub in Linlithgow. Where is the opportunity for chef to show his/her flair.

Hello Sue. Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review on Tripadvisor. Although the menu is set by our head office the chefs still do have to make the dishes and also they do get to put all their years of experience & knowledge into creating a list of amazing & popular specials for the evening times....

We came to Westport for dinner after spending our bank holiday in st.andrews. Although not full there was a lovely buzz and a warm greeting. We were shown to a nice table in the window and ordered off the "dine out" menu. This was very good value and although anxious as to what we would get we were not disappointed.... More
