Our first time here. The meal and service was very good. The steaks were tender and cooked to the perfect temperature. The Drunken mussels were outstanding as well! Well worth the trip to this out of the way gem....

So happy I found this place while being out in Purcellville for the day. My husband and I got to enjoy the nice weather by sitting on their front porch with a glass of wine before dinner. For dinner, we started with the crab rangoon which was great and even came with fresh lump crab meat on the side. My husband loved his steak and I absolutely loved my dish which was the special of the night. Roasted Char fish with basmati risotto and roasted squash. Everything was seasoned perfectly which is hard to come by these days with so many restaurants pouring salt on their dishes. Had such a great time and can’t wait to return to try some dessert!

Food is pretty good, not quite fine dining but very good for the area. Chef a bit heavy handed with the salt, would ask for less next time. Calamari and Steak were excellent, crab cakes had too much breadcrumb mixed in. Wine list is very good and prices are reasonable. Service as good as anywhere.

We have been here a handful of times and this is the first time I have had poor service. We waited about 15 minutes after we were seated then someone in our party got up and asked if someone was going to take our drink orders. Someone did finally come and they did apologize and gave us a free round. However, it wasn't busy so no real excuse. We all had the scallops and they came out luke warm, just wasn't a great evening for the restaurant in our opinion. They have been great in the past, hope this isn't their new normal.

Another wonderful brunch at The West End Wine Bar & Pub. Enjoyed a beautiful summer day eating our excellent meals on the terrace. Great food, super wine selections by glass or bottle, wonderful staff. A favorite.

Perfect dining experience for an evening out to dinner with friends. Excellent food and extensive wine list. The service was great. Perfect combination of excellent food in a friendly, warm environment. This wasn't our first visit and won't be our last! Thank you, West End!

West End Wine Bar was a wonderful surprise!! Delicious food, lovely atmosphere in the dining room, and friendly and efficient service. We are from Maryland, so we have a pretty high bar for crab cakes... WEWB’s crab cakes are packed full of back-fin meat and taste great. There’s no other way to put it!! We had the smoked burrata caprese salad - the tomato’s were so flavorful. Of course, we couldn’t leave without dessert, lavender and honey creme brûlée - oh so decadent! We visit LoCo a lot - we will definitely return to WEWB.

we celebrated our 51st. wedding anniversary at this restaurant and had a terrific meal with exceptional service from the entire staff. We were complimented by all for celebrating our event at their establishment and were given a complimentary desert to take home. A wonderful venue in a very beautiful location.

Hubby had shrimp and I had halibut. The halibut could use more flavor. The shrimp was delicious. I forgot to ask if the fish was wild caught or farmed. They need to add that important piece of info to the menu for seafood. They could use some fans outside. Great service. Our server was fantastic.

We have been to West End several times over the past year and this time, we were relatively underwhelmed. We made reservations, and despite the restaurant being relatively empty, were sat right next to a larger party resulting in a less ideal dining environment. It was hard to pick something from the new menu that sounded appealing, and the food was really so-so. The icing on the cake is the new manager spent at least 10 minutes socializing and catching up on personal stories to yet an other larger party that they sat on the other side of us, while we waited a lengthy bit for our cocktail refills and had to listen to their rather loud conversation.

Overall, for the price of the menu, not worthwhile. Check out The Wine Kitchen or Market Table Bistro for better experiences, menus and service.

Went there for our Anniversary. Ate on the patio with a wonderful guitar player playing and singing in the background. The food was great. My only complainant is the waitress took my wife's fork after the the appetizer and did not bring a new one, then disappeared and we had to go inside and get our own. Over all it was a wonderful experience.

Not so much a pub, but a nice dining experience. We went on a Wed. night so the pub was not busy. Extensive list of wine and few beers on draft. The limited menu fits our style (we firmally believe that huge menus="eh" food, and what we ordered was delicious: steamed mussels, crab sandwich, and hamburger. Was it worth the price? Yes, but not impressed with the "duck fries", which I assume are popular in Duck, NC.
