Description: Hawkes Bays oldest Pub still operating on its original site - 1925 when the current building was established. Licenced since 1851!! Westshore Beach Inn has become a firm favourite with locals and tourists alike. Napiers craft bier library- We have the most fabulous range of craft bier FRESH from the tap - Our own on site micro brewery 25 FREH biers on tap at any one time. Fill here - Take there....YES we fill Pots, Growlers, Camels n Riggers!! We have our Bistro with a fabulous lawn area that starts the day with lunch ( from 11.30am) then continuous through to dinner 7 days a week. The Bistro & Philippine Asian Kitchen all do simple fresh food with produce from Napier County and its artisans. Fresh Food NOT fast food from local suppliers is the mantra we operate to. Free range chicken and Verry's free range eggs feature on all menus. Our sustainably caught Fresh Fish is caught DAILY by Karl and Sarah from Better Fishing - It is the most superb flavour and texture - Often only a few hours since being caught. We are delighted to announce we have opened our Philippine Asian Kitchen with authentic and fresh flavours - OPEN dinner Tuesday to Sunday (Sunday lunch). Cheers & Beers The Bayliss family

Fantastic night out. Lovely food, great service, yes the spare ribs are fantastic, my husbands seafood platter looked so good, the teens eyes popped out their heads when they saw their icecream Sundaes. 9 of us dined there and we all enjoyed it, no complaints .

Part of the fun for organisers as well as us when its a large group!! Its always fun with groups who are out for a fun time, which you all were. With our private dining room we get to do a few buffet and set menus. Cheers & Beers Jeremy Bayliss

“Ribs were amazing”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

Visited the Westshore Beach Inn, and WOW what a place to dine. The service was fantastic, and what a selection of Craft beers. Ribs especially are the best ribs I've had in a long time!! Will definitely be back.

“Disappointing Roast, Great Ribs & Service with a Smile”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

We went here based on the reviews on Trip Advisor. I ordered the Roast of the Day which was Pork, and as it turns out I got the last dregs of the roast as there had been a large takeaway order for 20 roasts before I put my order in so I got no crackling and no apple sauce which is something you definitely expect with a Pork roast! I would have expected them to tell me that and ask if I would prefer to order something else, because if I knew I wasn't going to get crackling and apple sauce I would DEFINITELY have wanted to order something else. So needless to say, the roast was probably the worst roast I have ever eaten. If I was rating only the food and only my dish, my rating would be 1 out of 5. Fortunately what my partner ordered was a lot better. He ordered their famous ribs, and the sauce on those ribs was just amazing! Better than Lone Star! The service here was very friendly, we felt very welcomed to Napier by the warm reception we received here. I would go back again but only to try the Alpaca Burger as I am extremely intrigued. But I would say - only go here for a drink or to have the ribs!
If you want a really fantastic restaurant to go to with a difference, go to Restaurant Indonesia!

Well, I can honestly say we were all gutted when we read your review - the kitchen were too. Sometimes we do get it wrong and its the putting right that counts, I hope we did on the night. At least we got one half right and our staff made you feel welcome. Look forward to having a chance to put it right. Cheeers & Beers Jeremy Bayliss

Fantastic food, warm and cosy, very down to earth restaurant. Amazing super green chicken salad, fantastic healthy food options as well as naughty creamy pasta's!
I just wish I had room for dessert!

Wonderful. Someone who had something healthy and not the ribs!!! Deserts are pretty healthy, made on site Apple Crumble yum. Really appreciate your feedback, in New Zealand it is getting harder and harder to get people into hospo and the positive feedback from Tripadvisor clients is ALWAYS passed onto them.
