Good to see that standards have been maintained here. We had an excellent lunch, the food was really good and served in an efficient and friendly manner. The steak pie is a proper pie, not just a pastry top floating on a stew and the fish and chips were absolutely spot on. Well worth the journey to get here.

Never a question when our friends from north of the border visit, got to include a meal at Westow. Most recent evening meal, shared tiger prawns as starters, followed by sirloin steak, lamb chops and, ham egg and chips for the Ladies, were all well cooked and,served in the usual friendly atmosphere.
Always view the sweet menu, but heathy main portions and, our reduced appetites doesn't allow us to partake

Food is excellent we tried quite a bit of the menu over the 3 nights and couldn't fault it.
Lamb, haddock, salmon, steak, steak & ale pie all delicious and served with seasonal vegetables. Cheese slate is great which we share.
Staff are welcoming, friendly and very helpful. Nothing is too much trouble for them
Good range of beers and wines. We thoroughly enjoyed our lovely evenings here. Will return yet again when next staying in the area.
