Always good to come back here although it's always wise to book ahead. After a heavy night, the Classic Breakfast is a godsend with a classy house champagne, Bloody Mary or both! Lunchtime or evenings, just have about the best fish 'n chips you can find...you're unlikely to be disappointed.

I've been to westbeach several times and the food is always exquisite! Can't fault any of the dishes I've tried. I was particularly impressed on this occasion by the wonderful service from such a friendly waiter. He was very helpful and welcoming. Thankyou for another great dining experience. Martin you were fantastic! :)

Always a great place to eat by the sea. Always fab seafood and the feeling you are on holiday . You could be in the south of France on a warm summers day.

We went to West Beach for my birthday meal. We had a table in the middle of the restaurant but still lovely views. We weren't rushed at all. There was plenty of choice for me as a fish only eater but also for the other people in my party. The waitress was very helpful and even told us that we... More

Had fish and chips here with my 5 year old son twice, and both times it was great. People there were very busy and seemed a bit under pressure, but that didn't stop them from being very professional and really really friendly and sweet. It was a little expensive, but in the end worth it for the service and good... More
