We have not visited this pub since it changed hands and were very impressed. We shared a pate for starter which was lovely and by husband had the pie (beef and guiness) and a pint offer for £10 which he said was fantastic. I had the lasagne which was lovely and their chips were the nicest I've... read more

I have visited The Old Barn Owl several times and they serve the best burger and chips I have had anywhere. Lovely and juicy with fantastic crispy chips. Always attentive service, great place to eat

We spent a night at the Old Barn Owl in Westport on the way home from a week in Cornwall. It is a lovely old pub with 6 rooms all recently done up. We had a lovely room with a comfortable double bed, good wifi, and the best shower that I have had in years. Hot water was abundant and... More

Came here for my boyfriends birthday as they used to have a unique menu serving various different meat options. When we arrived the atmosphere was quite flat but this may have been because the restaurant wasn't very busy at the time we arrived. I think the place may also have changed hands as the menu wasn't the same at all.... More

Thank you for your time to put a review. My wife and I took over this very run down place just over a year ago and yes we have changed the menu as what they had here was shall we say not good in any way. I am a little disappointed that your views were not brought to my attention... More

We ate in the restaurant when we were staying in the hotel. We were very impressed by the great variety of dishes on the menu and also extra specials. I chose the seafood and was surprised by how much I got! My husband really liked his venison also. We were too full to have dessert, but the choice was very... More

We had a really nice meal here. Staff were really friendly and the new owners have transformed this lovely place from a dull, indifferent pub to a thriving and enjoyable inn/pub/restaurant. Glad we visited..

We have been here a few times with family and our small children, the menu is great and accommodates our preferences also the children's menu has a vegetarian option. The landlord is really friendly and even made up a fresh fruit salad which wasn't on the menu for our children without any fuss. It is rare to find a pub... More

Very hearty meal in average surroundings, elevated by the lovely landlord who was really welcoming. We really enjoyed our meal, and highly recommend the cabbage and squash mash - lovely.

Had a meeting with old work colleagues here today. The staff were very patient as we didn't know how many were coming and what time they would arrive! Anyway, 6 of us had a very enjoyable reunion. I had fish and chips and the meal was faultless. Although I can't speak for the others I think that they all enjoyed... More
