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

Warm and friendly welcome from our server Kelly. Without doubt the ribs are as good as anything we've ever had in the USA, it's the only place in Napier to serve genuine baby-back ribs. Wide range of beers all sensibly priced, so get to this place for great ribs and a good night out.

Hi Jennifer sorry we got it wrong for your last visit. Rest assured there is no change in menu sizes since you last visited - We still have the two sizes. I am sorry about the ribs not being right - Please email me at Jeremy@westshoreinn.co.nz so we can put it right. Thanks for taking time to review. Cheers & Beers Jeremy Bayliss

2nd time staying with 16 hungry teenage hockey boys. Jeremy and his staff, once again, made us feel welcome and continued to go the extra mile to ensure the boys were well fed. Over 5 nights they gave us great food, including deserts, at fantastic value.

We had dinner here every night whilst on tournament this year, and they certainly kept us well fed for the up and coming games. The food always managed to fill you to the brim and the taste is fantastic. The portions are large and great value for money. My personal favorite was defiantly the rib's! They had a killer barbecue sauce that had the taste buds crying for more and a great way to end a week of fantastic food!
