While on holiday in Westport we were delighted we went to The West Bar, went back 3 times in 5 days. Food was delicious especially fish pie and warm sticky pudding. Kids loved it also especially the fish n potatoes. Excellent value. Staff very nice n friendly.

Loved this place. Really friendly staff. No waiting to be seated or served. My fish was top notch. Hubby loved his chicken wings. Very tasty indeed!

My wife and I enjoyed a lovely meal in the West recently. The food was very good. We arrived quite late and the staff were very accommodating. The starters, main and deserts were all delicious. I'd recommend eating here for sure.

Dinner was tasty. I ordered a salmon special and my husband got the bangers and mash, both were delicious. Get an order of onion rings while you are here. They are wonderful! Service was fantastic.

A 115 year old pub with truly excellent traditional Irish pub food. Most of the pubs in Westport serve everything from fried chicken to Tandoori cuisine. If you want traditional very high quality pub food (cottage pie, Irish Salmon, mussels, duck, lamb), this is the place. Excellent service, wonderful atmosphere, cocktails, great beer, and a nice wine list.

This is a very friendly pub / restaurant . I visted here with my family and we all loved the food. The service and staff were extremely efficient for a busy Saturday night. I would recommended this for food and the pint of guiness isn't too bad either. Thanks

Travelled to Westport in April, 2016, and had an early dinner here on a Saturday afternoon. Bar is downstairs, the restaurant is on the first floor, we got a table without reservation. Portions were big, food was tasty, staff was friendly, and the prices were good!

Stopped here as part of a road trip. Staff were very courteous and helpful, the food (fish and chips and chicken curry) arrived quickly and was plentiful. Overall menu had a good selection, and was well priced.

We got at table upstairs (a really nice room, quite different from the pub downstairs). Food was great, and the portions were large. The waiters were attentive and nice - the only problem all evening was to understand how to pay the bill. Nobody had told us that we had to go downstairs to do that.

Thank Marie23
