Complimentary prosecco while waiting for our first order was a lovely gesture.

A group of us meet in the Westbury each Christmas. We were disappointed with the service mainly during yesterday’s visit. I sat at the table for 10-12 minutes before my friends arrived and wasn’t offered a menu or a drink by waiters. We ordered food and the waiter got our order wrong (no chips with a friend’s burger and incorrect meal for another friend) it took so long to correct this and we all ended up eating at different times. Then, we ordered dessert. Two of us got the apple tart with which came with rum and raisin ice cream instead of vanilla as stated on the menu. The apple tart dessert was difficult to cut with the spoon and eat and wasn’t what we expected at all. It was like a pancake. On the contrary, main course of curry was delicious. Our waiter (do not remember his name) made errors in many ways and this surprised me as the Westbury has always struck me as a place that holds such high standards from a service point of view. In the end, there was a €12 chips charge on the bill which was incorrect and this had to be corrected for us. In all, the service was extremely poor and not what we have experienced in the past. Regards, Deirdre

My wife’s birthday was made much more special on our visit to the restaurant. Very helpful staff . Woild have liked a separate slice of cake to honour her birthday and not just a candle in our ordered cake . But very lovely overall . The deserts were as the staff suggested - amazing !

Hi, My family and I have been enjoying family day ours for years at the Westbury, from get together, celebrations etc. However, my two sisters and I and our Mum arrived yesterday for a pre Christmas get together. As we were leaving my mum in her seventies, tripped at your revolving door. There was no one there to assist her, we got an awful fright. I found one of your staff members for assistance to get a taxi after this, as we were afraid to get her to walk far. He informed us we had to walk up the back of the hotel. I am aware that this was an accident but was disappointed with the lack of service at this and no assistance while leaving.

We were a party of 9 and had a lovely afternoon thank you. The Sidecar bar is such a lovely bar and the hotel was buzzing with plenty of people around. We were disappointed that we has to ask for some nuts to nibble on. We also had to ask for the macaroon that was to accompany our Boodle Champange cocktails - which was had a total of 5 of this particular cocktail. On review of our bill we were also over charged for an additioal espresso martini

I had reserved seating in The Sidecar for a family group to have pre-dinner drinks prior to dining in Wilde restaurant. We were welcomed warmly when we arrived at The Sidecar, for some reason I hadn't expected that, and it was such a pleasure. Staff were so friendly and service was prompt. We had the perfect start to our evening and we would happily return to The Sidecar.

Following lunch at Wilde our group of 7 ladies moved over to the Sidecar for a really lovely evening/night in the Bar! Service was great and the range of cocktails was perfect for our group.

I would like to say a personal thank you for such a wonderful welcome from your two waiters at the bar on the 14/02/18 Celebrating my mums heart transplant anniversary with such welcoming and attentive staff was truly touching. So much effort was put in, a beautifully laid table, decorated with chocolate love hearts and a flower, glasses of prosecco alongside coffees and cocktails we couldn’t have wished for a better ending to our day. Thank you thank you for making our day even more special Sarah Todd and family

We had a lovely evening at Sidecar and Wilde but there was a lot of confusion about where our coats and bags were at the end of the night so I just wanted to provide that feedback. Some people were given tickets, some were not and then there was a delay locating everything at the end of the night and a lot of confusion. Other than that we had a great evening and will be back. The food was superb!
