Bar Bistro


At the West End Hotel we take great pride in offering a range of both classic and contemporary home-made dishes on our menu. We know that freshness and quality are important to our guests, so we work hard to include the best produce and seasonal ingredients, all sourced locally from our suppliers. We pride ourselves on great customer service and when it comes to making you feel welcome, we will happily go that extra mile. So if you don’t see anything you like on the menu, let us know and we’ll do our best to create something just for you.

So if you’re looking for a quick bite, a relaxing bistro lunch or perhaps a school/group dinner to satisfy those hungry tummies, you’ll find it all here.
