“And they’re looking for a new pub manager.”

“Gone back to being just 'The West Hoe'.”
A friendly warm bar that serves great fresh food, fantastic coffees, real ales and great beer. Located just off the sea front and next to The Brittany Ferry Terminal, within easy walking distance from the city centre.

Last night came by and saw that the place was open, sparsely peopled but with a folksy DJ but outside above the main door was a big sign offering an opportunity for a new manager.

Just had a Sunday roast dinner at The West Hoe and it was excellent. They catered for a vegetarian and someone with food intolerance. We called the day before and all was well catered for. Food was hot and wholesome. Staff were very kind and...More

I love McCarthys - they have lots on in the evenings with open mic and comedy nights. The food is really good (although their new menu is missing a few of my personal favourites - I really liked the mini dishes). Can definitely recommend their...More
