Great service, great meal

Arrived without reservation, ushered to a table after being greeted by the charming proprietor. Wait staff very helpful and friendly, especially in teeing up my no added salt meal with the chef. Divine sea bass meal, altered to accommodate my idiosyncrasy. What a lovely experience in delightful... read more

Food was average for bar food we were very disappointed with menu given that the location was right on the fishing pier would have expected a better choice of seafood. Service was good and friendly.

We spent a week in Fenit for a wedding, the reception for which was hosted by the West End. We also frequented the bar daily. Dan, the owner, along with his family, staff, and sweet dog Bailey have created a true community pub that is warm and inviting. Absolutely outstanding food (Kerry lamb on Sundays... fish and chips... the best... More

I have been to this bar many times and the issue of smokers is getting worse. The food is excellent however there is nothing worse than the smell of cigarette smoke wafting in from the outside porch into the restaurant while you are trying to eat the fish of the day. Something really has to be done about this and... More

Food is fabulous - always fresh and cooked to perfection, both in the restaurant and bar. Brian and the team always make us feel very welcome. A great place to eat and socialise. Would highly recommend to anyone!

I have been eating here periodically over the last 15 years and it is a firm favourite of myself and my wife's. This is an old family owned Pub that expanded to incorporate a Restaurant when the Son of the family returned home after some years abroad. He was an award wining Chef and so sought to use his skills... More

The West End is a great stop in the pretty village of Fenit. It has a great bar menu and a top class seafoof menu in the Restaurant. There's always a few local characters around with tall tales and long yarns. A great stop after a day on the beach, pier or sea.

Worth a trip. Ate here a few times and always good. Restaurant is lovely and they also do a bar menu which is very reasonably priced. Wine menu is very reasonable even in the restaurant and in the bar you can buy the wine by the large bottle (if like me and you dont like those small bottles). Would recommend... More
