The owner has an attitude problem and would rather eat and drink in there himself than serve a customer. The prices are rediculous for what you get. When we went it was £8.50 for a salad! The other staff were pleasant. But I would advise anyone not to eat here. It's a rip off and there are other better places to eat in Whitehaven. I will never go again.

We always have lunch here when visiting Whitehaven (even if there were other comparable choices in the town, we would still come here!) the food is always good & well presented, service (by the handsome waiter) attentive. Prices reasonable & good choice of daily specials.

With all the other food places in Whitehaven being shabby and out dated, the Westminster is a lovely setting, well designed & beautiful home made food. The staff were very friendly & made us feel welcomed in our visit. Highly recommend.

This review is very late. Apolgies. I took a friend to this pleasant looking cafe as a treat. We had "organc leek soup" we simply could not eat. The good news is it had not been made on the premises , meaning not home made. The service was indifferent. We ate at 1 pm on a week day and the cafe was nearly empty. This is not the first time I have been disappointed. Such a shame as the location and style of the cafe reminds me of a London venue . Did we complain ??Honestly no because our half full bowls of soup were never cleared from our table through our entire visit. Hence my coomens about the service. Sorry :(
