Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We all had the roast of the day which was beef ($21 for a small plate). The beef was nice and tender and the vegetables were yummy. Much nicer than I was expecting. And we got a gravy boat full of gravy - what more...could you ask.More

Such a lovely easy, relaxed atmosphere. My chowder was outstanding! The staff were very friendly, obliging, attentive and genuine. Very happy with our evening.

10/10 for service, quality and presentation. If visiting Westport this is definitely a restaurant to go to. My husband had the Quarry Steak which was cooked as he likes it and was succulent & tender. I had the Quarry Chicken which was also tasty and...well cooked. Definitely recommend checking it outMore

4 of us went here for a meal on a Tuesday night. Everyone was very satisfied and enjoyed the good beer and food. Another review mentions the burgers being massive which they are, this is clearly mentioned and the burger is called the Colossal burger...so no surprises there. I would recommend this place for a meal or drinks.More

Had an evening meal at The Quarry and it was totally first class. My steak meal also came with proper chips, as opposed to the horrid French Fries so many places use these days. All the staff were exceptionally friendly and polite and knew exactly...what they were doing.More

Firstly werent expecting anything other than pub food. Even from the outside this is clearly "casual" dining. On entering the woman behind the bar mentioned there would be a wait of maybe 45mins. The place wasn't busy but we figured we would have a drink...and it'd be okay. We waited over an hour and a half and saw very little in the way of meals coming from the kitchen in that time. When our meals finally arrived we were quite frankly horrified. The burgers my teenage boys had ordered were the size of dinner plates (no one had indicated that or suggested it was anything other than a regular burger) and were basically slop between stale buns. Not only did they look like something you might feed your dog they tasted somewhat similar. My boys were horrified and embarrassed at the wastage of food because not even a hungry grown adult rugby player would have gone near finishing it we barely made a dent. My husband's hotpot was "not very nice" either. After such a long wait and such horrid food we could not wait to leave. We got a half hearted apology for the wait but still had to pay full price for our experience. I virtually never leave reviews but felt compelled to this time, because quite frankly I'd be embarrassed to have international tourists experience this!More

We came in for a family dinner and booked in. Once we had ordered our meals it took an hour for our mains to come out. Most of the table had the roast which was cold when brought to the table. Two of us got...the seafood chowder that came with 2 mussels. The smell from the mussels was horrific and definitely off after mistakenly eating one. The others at the table were put off from their meals due to the smell. Staff didn't ask how our meals were and came at the end when we told them the mussels were off in the chowder. We got no apology and had to pay for our meal. When asked when paying about this the staff just said "oh yeah" it was off. We are hoping we don't get sick from this meal and unfortunately would not return for another meal.More

We've dined at The Quarry twice during our work time in Westport. Both times, we were really impressed with our dinners and desserts. The service was fabulous! We'll be back! First time - Beef Wellington, crumb fish salad, pan fry fish with spud salad and...veg. Then Eton mess and yummy crepes. Second time - scallops, kumara salad with pork chopped, pan fry fish with boil spuds with lashings of butter & veg. Then Eton mess and omg, the panna cotta was out of this world delish!More

Sadly the quality of meals were down on previous recent visits. The house soup was unchanged for the whole week as was the roast pork. But the burgers were stilk fantastic...garlic bread recommended and young waitresses friendly but lacked training regarding wine list and upselling...drinks..desserts etc. Just shame to see the meals now more like pub food.. have been realkh impressed during visits last 12 monthsMore

Spent 2 nights staying in the hotel across the street and it was so convenient both evenings to just pop across for dinner at The Quarry. First night I enjoyed the Roast Lamb small size. Second night I ordered the Fish of the Day which...was Orange Roughy. I chose to have mine crumbed. It was lovely, however, I found the huge bed of aioli potato salad the fish sat on rather too much. I would have preferred less of it and perhaps a small green side salad to lighten it all. Great service.More

We were travelling through and walked from were we stayed tonight Sunday 7 th and was totally and surprised from behind the door of a bar and grill. The quality of the food, the quick service and friendly staff. I had the baby veg burger...( that was huge) it was so tasty , my husband had scallops and then fish. Again super fresh. The rest of the group all loved the various meals from the roast, steaks, chicken salads to mention a few. Both the waiting and bar staff were fantastic. Handled the cheekiness from Our table. Would definitely recommend this place for the great front of house service on the night we there through to the chefs and staff at the back that produced such an array of yum food and we all got served at the same time.More
