We sampled the early bird menu at West at 6pm on a Thursday. We were the only customers there for quite some time. The food was all delicious and quite innovative. We couldn't believe the price either. We may well be back soon!

We were staying at The Twelve and decided to go for dinner at West. The food was seriously good – really interesting, beautifully executed and absolutely delicious. Not the cheapest meal but definitely worth it for a treat or a special occasion.
