    A great venue. We were there to see our son in one of the bands. It was easy to book tables in the bistro. The hamburgers were very nice and it was a decent serve of fries. Maybe broaden the menu a fraction. However, we really enjoyed our night. Thanks!

    We rolled in for a Sunday lunch for Fathers Day with the kids. Service was friendly, cheeseburgers magnificent, all enjoyed whilst listening to great tunes. Annie the new venue manager was awesome and accommodating, and went above and beyond to ensure we had a great lunch.

    Bar food mainly just Burgers and fries. American style cheese burger very tasty but too much sauce for my liking. Fries were hot and crisp. Service was prompt and friendly. Music was brilliant

    The gig was fabulous, the chips were one of the best I ever had, the burger was okay and it was hard to identify which one was the vegetarian as the waiter just put on the table and left. Service at the bar was extremely slow, it took so long to be serviced.

    Went for music in the band room which was fabulous. Very disappointed in the burgers. The picture and reality didn't match. The bun had no substance and I suspect no nutrition value

    The burger and fries were fantastic, kitchen was very slow and it took a long time for the food to come out. I would go back but allow for a long time for the food to come out. It was a Friday night and the kitchen must have been super busy 🤷‍♀️ Staff were lovely, very friendly and their service was fantastic.

    Went for dinner before a gig after checking the Doughboy pizza menu and seeing they have gluten free bases available. Well they didn't have anything gluten free available. Told us to go to the bar for a vegan gf toastie but they were also out of gf bread. So didn't get dinner at all which was disappointing and awkward. Considered ordering ubereats to the hotel. The pizza my husband got tasted like charcoal and had no other flavour. We've had this style of pizza before and this wasn't it. Not doing Doughboys justice. Disappointing all around.

    Hotel WestwoodResponded on March 3, 2022G'day! Sorry to hear you had a disappointing experience; we're currently working to expand our menus with more inclusive options, and after the first couple of weeks of food service we've been able to better gauge stock supplies. We'll pass on your feedback concerning food quality to the kitchen team, however please do note that the pop-up kitchen currently stationed at the pub is Dough Religion and not Doughboys, who are located in Sydney. Thanks for checking out the venue!

    We had a fantastic time sitting and watching James Ellis and the Jealous Guys whilst enjoying a few drinks. The only disappointment was that they had run out of a lot of bar ingredients and so lots of cocktails were unavailable!

    Great venue with potential to be the rock heaven of the west (like its former life as The Reverence). Fantastic bandroom and line up of bands...sometimes free entry! Food was disappointing...many menu items unavailable (probably Covid or just not organised) and cheeseburgers came late and cold. Service staff friendly, but confused. Weird how you pay for drinks on one square tap and then on another square tap for food. Two separate transactions...not thinking about the customer. Mr Yum App may make it better. Regular sanitising needs to be seen to increase consumer confidence in these Covid times. Air-con very good in the bandroom. Great outdoor area with DJ. Just need to provide a menu that is available and sort out the payment system. I booked early and updated my numbers and rang and left a voicemail and msg via FB. No response. Turned up, no need to book at all. I hope the customer service gets better as this pub has the potential to support so many great bands and get live music back on the menu, and return to its former glory days!

    Love the trivia, drinks and bar staff (great service)! Food since opening has been very disappointing, the Mexican style menu was poor and the new menu is awful (said my whole table who ordered food). At this stage i recommend everyone to eat beforehand. Hoping that the kitchen is opened soon with proper chefs and menu with good food (venue said it would since it opened but that was 1yr ago, come on Hotel Westwood!). Until then go for everything except for food!
