It was lovely to visit this traditional pub/restaurant the night before the New Year’s Eve lockdown came into force.
The ambiance was very nice and the food, tasty and plentiful.
Thankfully, there were no intrusive Covid barriers/Perspex screens anywhere, apart from a few notices and bottles of hand sanitiser on each table, it looked like the good old days!
We had a nice chat with the new tenant/manager, Maggie, who told us that she had only just taken over the running of this venue, and hoped to make a success of it. Good luck to you!
Hopefully we will be visiting this lovely pub again, this year!

Pleasant and friendly, safe distancing. The food was very good. Customers are reminded to adhere to CV-19 rules. The managers are friendly and service is swift.
The atmosphere was relaxing as low background music, tables distanced apart. Every where looked clean, and hand sanitisation gel on every table.
I would recommend this venue.

Just moved into Westbourne and have been meaning to try this pub. Finally had lunch there and we were not disappointed. Great food, wine and ambiance in a lovely pub. The managers were very helpful and friendly. Have now booked for new years eve. Highly recommended.

Great place, cosy on a rainy day, staff and owners terrific. Friendly and helpful.
Sunday lunch good , potatoes a bit over roasted. We were seated under speaker and music whilst nice was distracting

I enjoyed eating at the Inn on the Park. If I make one criticism they asked how Ai liked my beef. I said pink but it was well done but tender so no real complaints.

Great Sunday Roast and yummy desserts. It’s a lovely pub and dog friendly too. Service a little slow at times but think it’s because they were very busy and we were served by multiple people which caused some confusion as one staff member thought the other staff member had taken our dessert order when they hadn’t. Just a minor communication issue, nothing major. Would go back again.
