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

“Great service, good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

Our food was good, though the Scotch fillet was a tiny bit overdone, as was the fondant (it was cooked in the middle). The seafood platter and beef cheek were really nice though, and my apple crumble was divine.
The best thing about the visit was the service. From start to finish it was friendly, funny and attentive, and her knowledge of the beers was brilliant.
Couldn't ask for more there at all, and even my hard to please father-in-law said he'd go again. There is no higher praise!

“Fantastic Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012

Stopped over for one night on a business trip. The craft beer selection was extraordinary. The meal that followed was incredibly good. The bread board was generous with a lot of variety. The beef cheeks were very tender and left me wishing for more. Rooms were clean and comfortable.
A very pleasant experience.

“Refreshment stop with charm.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

Stopped here for evening tipple. Lovely spot and great mine host.
In Napier proximate to the estuary and Napier Bay (Westshore of Napier Bay) just down the Quay from the Yacht club, We liked it so much we inquired about rooms. This place is good value, clean, tidy and run by a lovely family. Heaps to do close by in the old port.

Yes Napier has so much to offer and we are happy to be in amongst it. The cafe has got off to a great start with locals and visitors, the big grass garden really popular with overseas visitors. Cheers n Biers Jeremy
