Absolutely delicious food and charming staff! We ordered the fish and chips which are locally caught and made with an in-house batter with local beer, and also the barbecue chicken with pan roasted vegetables and garlic mashed potatoes. SO yummy. The seasonal strawberry rhubarb cobbler with ice cream was the perfect finish!

We have been traveling now for 9 weeks straight and eaten at many places. This was probably one of the top, if not THE BEST, meal we have had. The food was fresh and fantastic and the two women working in the restaurant were so very friendly and funny. I had no idea that there was an agave wine and... More

What more can I say. Food is prepared with love. I had Saturday high tea, dinner and breakfast in this place, in that order. Had the fish tacos with watermelon salad. Quite lovely. The tea was delightful. All the food was amazing. Only wish there had been a few more sandwiches but it's a good price for the food that... More

Okay, so perhaps it's the only restaurant in Westport, but still. By the quality of its food, this is a more a restaurant than a pub, but the spirit here certainly pub-like. It's a super friendly place, the kind of small town spot that you almost have to visit if you are anywhere near by. And why not? Prices are... More

Bottom floor of the Westport Hotel; could've been a local bar back in the day with all the dark wood and all; a mix of fine dining and whimsy (the inflatable moose head in one corner of the ceiling). A bit pricey for what you get, but they use their garden well.

I know they close for part of the year, so you should call ahead, or check their website. The food and service are excellent. Also the location and ambiance are enchanting.

We stayed one night. Joy was very accommodating. We stayed in the Rose Room #2. The room was elegant and the bathroom was spacious. We received a complimentary half bottle of wine which we enjoyed on our deck overlooking the ocean. Comfortable bed and quiet place. Breakfast was delivered to our room in the morning. We had to depart before... More
