Zest Harbourside

Reviewed By johnmil7 - Cockermouth, United Kingdom

Visited Zest for my wife’s birthday with family, we we warmly welcomed and quickly shown to our table which we had booked. The young man who served us was very friendly and polite. The food was lovely but a little pricey for what you get. Most mains don’t come with sides which have to be ordered separately. 3 of the party had the pulled pork with chips whilst I had their home made zest fried chicken with loaded chips (chunky chips with slickly tomato sauce, cheese and garlic mayonnaise over the top). All the food was well clocked and tasted delicious
The total bill including soft drinks came to £87 for 4 of us which considering we only had main meals was rather expensive and if we go back I think we would order less sides and share them as there was more than enough for 2 people on each portion.

Couldnt fault anything. Was my daughters 21st. We were seated downstairs and had it to ourselves, we were told we could bring some cd's to play-which we did. Upon ordering our food we were served quickly considering it was a busy night. The staff were very attentive and came down regularly to see if everything was ok and did we need anything. The food itself was beautiful and plentiful-the bowls are deceiving
All in all would highly recommend
Thank you

Fish & Chip Shop J Crosby

Reviewed By Martyn B - Whitehaven, United Kingdom

A second visit for lunch following our last good experience. We were not disappointed.
Service was prompt and efficient.
Seating area was well laid out and spotlessly clean.
We tried the seafood platter for two - this came piping hot and crispy with a good variety of seafood, a large salad and plenty chips. Too much for us to eat but it was no trouble for the staff to pack up the surplus for us to take home.
Well worth the visit.

The Vagabond

Just off the harbour Near Duncan Square

Reviewed By Charlottepuss - Leeds, United Kingdom

On holiday at Whitehaven and looked at TripAdvisor for reviews. Came across this place right on the harbour front. From the outside it looks a little tired but inside it was really busy and full of people eating and drinking. Staff approached as soon as we walked in and asked if we had booked (we hadn’t) it was Easter Sunday and we where not sure if we get a table. All the food looked and smelt amazing. We went for the lamb Sunday roast. A bargain at under £11. The lamb was beautiful and plenty and loads of seasonal veg which where cooked just perfectly. There was so much for the price we payed. I wouldn’t hesitate in going back. Spotted the pizza. Need to try that!

Cafe West

Reviewed By Joseph R - Cumbria, United Kingdom

We visited Cafe West in Whitehaven to meet up for a pre-Christmas lunch and get-together. It is one of three cafes run by the West House trust to provide training opportunities under supervision for people with learning difficulties (the other two cafes are at Workington and Keswick).
The staff are incredibly friendly and really keen to give good service with a smile and are really polite. What an incredible standard of service there is at the cafe and we had a really lovely time. As our visit was shortly before Christmas there were 'Christmas special' options on the home-baked menu and there is a good choice. The home-made vegetable soup was delicious and really filling.
The celebrity chef Jean-Claude Novelli has visited the cafe a number of times and highly recommends it. If you are in the area I would certainly recommend a visit.

The Globe

The Globe is a traditional public house that is a listed building and has some original features. We strive to be very welcoming and original. we serve very good Home-Cooked food and a selection of real ales. This is not a fast food outlet, and your evening should be relaxed and enjoyable.

Reviewed By Martyn B - Whitehaven, United Kingdom

From the outside, this appears to be an unassuming "on-street" pub & inside too - you'd think it a regulars watching sport and drinking establishment.
However, don't be put off.
The staff are warm, friendly and welcoming.
Food is excellent and prices are certainly competitive.
We visited for Sunday lunch and were not disappointed.
This was a traditional British Sunday lunch, choose from five meats, accompanied by six different vegetables as well as a choice of potatoes, stuffing, Yorkshire pudding and lashings of tasty gravy.
Sauces came separately in dishes - not sachets or "used" jars on the table - something I prefer.
Definitely worth a visit but it's popular & booking is advised for Sundays.
One not to forget - cash only!! No card machine.

Whitehaven Golf Club

Reviewed By riosnowie20 - Egremont, United Kingdom

Visited here on my birthday and was totally disgusted! Steak cooked blue when asked for rare (sent back and was still under cooked), full of fat and for £18 (never seen a sirloin like it!). Another person ordered a sirloin which was exactly the same....never seen fat like it! Fish and chips sent back as the batter was very soggy and the fish was stacked on top of the chips which made them extremely greasy and soggy. To top it off, two members of our table went outside, to only hear the chef and the waitress slagging us off about complaining about the food! They originally said in the kitchen that they would knock nothing off, and that we had ate the steak that was sent back (wrong!). After more complaining they eventually knocked the fish and chips meal and 1 steak off the price. No apologies. Absolutely disgusting service and will never return. Ruined all our night!
