we had Dinner here twice, the service was excellent as was the carved meat department. The Menu meals were also excellent. The sweet trolley was to die for and well worth keeping a bit of space for it. Its a family run business which is well supported by locals as well as visitors. we had 2 excellent meals there.

We had a lovely meal at Country Cousins. My last visit was about 30 years ago and I was amazed to find the restaurant was still there. The decor is subtle and smart, the atmosphere is warm and welcoming, the staff very friendly and helpful. The service was quick and the food was lovely, really fresh, well-cooked, and tasty. Nice drop of gin and good coffee as well. Hopefully the next visit will not take so long! Recommended.

Visited this evening on our last night in Westward Ho! Excellent choice of menu but went for the carvery as it looked delicious. It did not disappoint. We went for the turkey and roast beef. Ample choice of vegetables, all served piping hot. As for the sweet trolley, we were spoilt for choice. We all chose different and neither one of us were disappointed. We left the restaurant feeling extremely well fed. Not forgetting excellent customer service. The staff very friendly and extremely courteous.

This was our first trip to Westward Ho! and we happened on this place. A fantastic restaurant that had everything we wanted and more. The staff were incredibly friendly and the food was lovely. Best of all was the dessert trolley!!! What a choice and what great puddings. It all took me back to seaside holidays as a child. Proper food, proper service and no rush. Just delightful!

We had a lovely evening meal here during our holiday in Westward Ho! The staff were very friendly and welcoming, particularly the owner/manager. My son enjoyed the biggest mixed grill I've seen but he managed it all and said it was very nice. My daughter and I had burgers which were very meaty and delicious. We hadnt pre-booked so we turned up early and were seated straight away. We would definitely visit again if we holidayed in Westward Ho!
