Food, service and atmosphere are all perfect for a special occasion. The foodies out there will love the interesting combinations and the personal touch of a relatively small cosy restaurant finish the atmosphere off perfectly.

I was treated to this lovely place for my birthday. We had the Taster Menu, a wonderful way to experience the restaurants many different dishes and make the most of the experience. Highly recommend the Venison. A very different atmosphere to your usual Michelin starred restaurant, laid back, no ponsy table cloths or wait staff, a wood burner...an all round... More

We went here for our anniversary treat and we were not disappointed. The food was tasty, very well presented, and the staff attentive. A little pushy on the wine front, but the atmosphere was laid back and comfortable. Would recommend to others.

I've eaten here several times over the years and it never fails to impress. The added bonus is the price, it's considerably cheaper than the other quality restaurants in the county. Excellent food, beautiful building, good size tables, attentive service.......it goes on.....

For a small restaurant in a sleepy village, West House beats some of the big name fine dining restaurants that charge more and are less friendly. The venison and vanilla risotto was sensational. I'm glad I only live 20 minutes away. The tasting menu was a real treat and very high end cooking.

We visited West House on my wife's birthday and had a fantastic meal. The lunch menu is well priced and delicious. Nice to see pigeon for a change, which was perfectly cooked, and the gurnard was a real pleasure to eat. The additions you receive are also a delight, especially a small basket of cheese savouries. What I would call... More

I have previously reviewed the West House following earlier visits over a number of years. Three of us went for a celebratory lunch recently and had the best meal we had eaten there in all our visits. As ever the menus had a number of interesting, slightly unusual selections. We all had the set lunch beginning with the mackerel. Two... More

We were pleasantly surprised when we entered; the atmosphere was very welcoming and had a real rustic feel. There was an excellent choice of dishes for each course offering a la carte dishes and a tasting menu for both meat lovers and vegetarians. Delicious warm homemade bread and butter were offered along with 3 biscuit type canapés all flavoured with... More

We went for lunch at the West House for a treat a couple of weeks ago. It is a small restaurant with on street parking outside. The service was great, really discreet and although it was a 2 hour lunch it just felt really natural, we certainly weren't kept waiting. I had mackerel followed by venison. The quality of the...
