    Four of us had the set evening menu and although the menu seemed at first glance to be quite straightforward, the quality of the ingredients made the whole meal truly remarkable. Each flavour could be tasted and it was clear that the ingredients themselves were of the highest quality. Beautiful! The service was also excellent and 3 courses came to a very reasonable £23 for a fantastic meal.

    A fantastic evening. The whole experience was first class. The food was five star, the service was exceptional, all young staff who could not have been more polite or friendly. A very warm and welcoming atmosphere. I am a Coeliac and when I asked which dishes I could have, was told that any dish could be adapted for me! Perhaps a little more expensive than other establishments but well worth it for the quality of the, food and very pleasant staff. I had the roast Plaice which was just fabulous. The boys had steak, declared possibly the best ever. Children had breaded chicken, ate every scrap which tells its own tale! Daughter had the beef rib, again fabulous. Altogether a great evening.

    We booked online (major fault- you should call to book and request seats away from large noisy groups) and went to find that we were given a table in a corner, right next to two huge gangs who were making a right racket. No, it was not the children, who I must say were impeccably behaved. Loud laughs and conversations at top of the voice discussing private matters while dressed in nice clothes is really not my thing. Maybe there should be a limit on alcohol served to such large groups. I went specifically because the website menu said they serve lamb. They did not. It would not have been proper to leave. However the venison I had to choose instead was delicious. But I like getting what I want-especially at this price. So, PLEASE CALL AHEAD

    We went to the Westwood after racing at Beverly. It was a superb treat, with interesting, excellent food and good wine, with a fair range of prices (none extremely cheap, though). It isn't a cheap evening but the high quality was worth it and it wasn't unreasonably marked up. The waiters were excellent; friendly, attentive and efficient in a non-intrusive way. The restaurant feels stylish and chic, not at all stuffy or over formal.

True it isn't the cheapest but it is the best and, as with many things you get what you pay for. Will be back again soon - there is nothing in the area to touch it.

    My daughter and I had a wonderful meal, the mid week menu was just perfect and well priced. We enjoyed the luxury and sophistication of the overall experience. Our only one tiny criticism was that we felt uncomfortable when the waiter who served us kept "apologising for interrupting us" each time he brought our food. He was obviously trained to do this but we felt it was unnecessary and inappropriate. Other than that the staff were very professional and efficient.

    Food, drink, staff, and venue are all top class. Yes it is expensive but on this occasion this wasn't an issue because we were celebrating. However, my wife and I eat out a lot and would have to say - because of the cost - wouldn't eat here on a regular basis - more for a treat or special occasion. The set menu is in the 'higher' ball park for cost with restaurants of similar kind but the wine list is quite a bit more expensive than other restaurants - more in keeping with the London restaurants ( and this isn't London!) Outside of the set menu and you are paying an awful lot more. Having said that, the place was extremely busy on a Friday night - so I maybe the restaurant is cashing in whilst it can - and who can blame them!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    We were looking for the best value main course on the menu as we had a specific budget to stick to and this seemed to be the Porterhouse steak which was "for two to share". The price was £28.50 so we thought this was for two people. It was delicious and beautifully cooked but we got a shock when the bill arrived and it turned out that £28.50 was the price for one person! Given that potatoes and vegetables are extra, we thought this was pretty extortionate. A glass of wine and a half of lager cost £12.81 which again is ridiculously expensive. It's a nice restaurant but not that nice! We will not be visiting again.

The waiting staff were fantastic and the food was delicious, a favourite being the hake dish and fillet steak which were cooked to perfection. Presentation and taste went hand in hand and none of us were left disappointed. Thank you very much The Westwood.

Staff were friendly but the service was a little slow. Overall, a lovely meal and we definitely enjoyed but i do think it is a little over priced for what it is.

    I've had lunch/dinner in this restaurant for 5-6 times now. The food is excellent. Keep up the good effort - I think you're just one tick away from your first Michelin star (pity for us then because it'll be harder to find a table and it will get more expensive). Just perhaps, a little bit of additional work/emphasis is required on the dessert front.

    Tucked away to the side of a grand building and a little hidden, nevertheless, this is definitely a place to dine or be dined. Reception is always courteous and service exceptional. In my experience, there is zero pressure, something I particularly value. The food is very good and has unexpected twists that are delightful.
