Introducing Footscray's newest pub, at the new Hotel Westwood (formerly The Reverence Hotel).

We've got a wide selection of tropical and latin inspired cocktails for you to sip on while you munch down some of our tacos or nachos. There's plenty of beer and a strong selection of Victorian wine to choose from too.

It's been a long time between drinks so we're thrilled to finally welcome you back to 28 Napier Street and look forward to seeing you soon.

Experiences

    No politics, no sport, and no book learnin’… just TV, Movie and Music trivia! Free entry, with drink specials, booze and prizes galore, and the best pub menu this side of the Maribyrnong.

Great vibe and staff but food was very disappointing. My friend and I ordered the fried chicken and chips. The picture showed 3 pieces of chicken on the bone. We got dried out chicken strips/tenderloins. Not what we ordered and not with 22 dollars. A pity because the food was great here when it was The Rev. Good pub, average food.

The place was packed and they seemed totally overwhelmed. The table ordering app just caused terrible confusion when food was delivered as waiters couldn’t really tell which order was for who. Food - all Simple Mexican only - was very ordinary. We simply didn’t know what we were eating. We were there to support the band and the music was fantastic so that made up for the test. This is definitely not an eating venue.

Thanks for the review Hannah! We apologise for the food coming out slowly on the Saturday night. We are always working on improving our service at Westwood and we're glad our team provided you with the excellent service to make up for it! Looking forward to having you and your mates back at the venue :)

I love Westwood!!! I live around the corner and I feel like Westwood is my home from home. I feel quite comfortable coming on my own as the staff are super friendly and know me by name. They are always officiant and are happy to help with any additional matters. I can’t wait until we are completely out of lockdown and Westwood can be bk to full capacity and have live gigs again. I couldn’t recommend Westwood high enough!

The staff is wonderful and friendly. I had a table booked on Saturday night and we were placed in the seated area by the fireplace, which was wonderful on a freezing Melbourne night! Would certainly go again.

The pub was busy but when the food came it was good...maybe larger portion sizes would be good as it didn't seem very good value for money. We ordered some nachos to fill the gap which unfortunately never came...after waiting an hour, I asked for a refund which I am still waiting on 3 days later. There is certainly room for improvement but good to see that The Westwood is reeling in some good entertainment for the west in a nice space with good acoustics.

Did not get what I ordered off the menu. Re ordered, had to pay the extra and waited for over 1/2 hr for my nachos to arrive!!A Very small serving for $16! Serves at our table were more for a snack, not a meal. The serving staff are very nice. The food truck was very slow and overpriced.
The outdoor dining area is nice and The band room was great!

Staff were so welcoming & attentive. First class security & hospo peeps. DJ was great (could have played louder), food & bev tops (maybe skip the Flower Spritz tho, & go the mild Bloody Mary, it’s spicy enough). I’ll be back for some HOSS next month x

We did not eat at the venue and attended for the music only. If you sat outside it was difficult to hear the musicians. Seating inside was limited. , however the doorman/ bouncer was very obliging and arranged a seat upon being informed of my knee condition as other patrons had taken the seats allocated to myself and my group of friends.

Main bar not open yet, only courtyard. An arty spot in an odd location. Staff were great. Music was good too, mostly familiar older stuff, not too loud so could easily talk. Nice wine & cocktails. Not much of a food menu as yet, but tasty all the same.

Was a bit loud as the group next to us was partying hard. Also was windy which didn’t help us hear. Over all great vibe, can’t wait for a calm sunny day to pop in for a beer

What bar doesn’t serve chips? The only vegan choice shouldn’t be tofu. No cider on tap and only two gross packaged ciders available. Lots of beer though. Not everyone likes beer. Not everyone who doesn’t like beer wants spirits or cocktails.
