    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 23/8/2014
    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.

    We went here on Friday for a special occasion as a party of seven and were made to feel welcome throughout. 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.

    The food is excellent, the set menu is very good value. The staff are excellent. Next time I need to sit at a table with proper chairs, the bench seating is too low. Also the last couple of times I've been I've ended up next to a large table which has been very noisy.

It exceeded our expectations and we had a truly wonderful meal. I had crab, sea bass and mint chocolate fondant all of which was absolutely delicious.

    Took Mum to the Westwood for lunch on Saturday as a special treat. The actual restuarant is beautiful, great building and setting. Food was amazing although i did find the menu somewhat limited. 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.

    We rarely go out to the higher end restaurants so this was a treat for us. We were not disappointed. Service was friendly and efficient yet not intrusive. Food was delicious. Relaxed outside with a coffee afterwards in a lovely area with heaters and blankets over the chairs which was a lovely touch. Highly recommend this to anyone wanting a special night out. We have booked the private room for a birthday party later in the year which we looked at whilst there and are very much looking forward to it.

    Delicious food and excellent service. A very busy popular, dining experience. My only complaint, if you can call it a complaint, is that the tables are quite close together and due to the tiled floor it is quite noisy, so we found with the restaurant fully booked, that we were shouting at one another to be heard. However, I am in my sixties and probably younger diners would not find a problem!! We had the table d'hote, which was very good value and absolutely delicious - the quality was not compromised, which is often the case with a special priced menu. To sum up I would rate this as one of the best restaurants in the area.

    The restaurant was quite busy for a midweek evening which gave it a good buzzy atmosphere. However, there was no sense of rush and everything was relaxed and leisurely. After a drnk at the bar while we chose our food, we were shown to our table quite quickly. The staff were friendly, attentive and efficient and the service was very good. There was a good variety of dishes on the menu; the food was delicious and beautifully presented. Over all it wasn't cheap but we were happy to pay for the quality of the food - especially as we were celebrating a special occasion so had chosen favourite dishes regardless of the dost. We could have chosen more reasonably priced items. We thoroulghly enjoyed the whole evening and will certainly visit again.

    Then book a table at the Westwood. We have enjoyed fine dining around the globe, and consider ourselves to be quite worldly when it comes to decent cuisine but the standard of the food, the presentation, the energy of the staff all combine to provide what is little short of wonderment. I would rank the Porterhouse steak we shared as in the top two I have ever enjoyed in my life, cooked to perfection, seared with a crust yet spectacularly moist and rested when delivered to table, and of such incredible depth of flavour to be worthy of specific mention, yet when supported by the assiette of accompanying sauces it transformed into a level of delight even I am struggling to find the words. A little taste of Nirvana.

    Found this amazing restaurant by searching for 'restaurants in Beverley' on Google. We celebrated my husband's birthday eating al fresco on their large open air dining area. selecting our food from the daily specials menu - 3 courses for £19.50 incl wine or coffee/tea. Superb setting, service and food!! The deserts were out of this world! We will definitely visit again and recommend to friends and business colleagues. Thank you

    We have visited the Westwood five times for Sunday lunch and on each occasion the food has been delicious. The vegetables are cooked to perfection, the food is served hot and the desserts are simply beautiful (especially the chocolate fondant!) The restaurant is modern and includes a small seating area outside so that lunch can be enjoyed 'al fresco' on a nice day. The staff are polite, efficient and friendly and have achieved the balance of being attentive but not invasive. Would recommend without hesitation.

    Due to a last minute change of plans on my mother's birthday (due to weather) we decided to stop by for lunch. Cannot fault this this. Two of us ate from the set lunch menu which was really nice and my mother ate from the main menu, which also was very good. It was really busy, but the service was brilliant, very attentive waiters and the time between courses was perfect. I'm trying to think of something negative to say and the only thing I can think of was where we were seated, but that wasn't that bad. Will definitely be returning to this restaurant.
