The Town House

The Town House Review

Townhouse owner Emily Lucas used to run an ultra-successful cafe at Cape Foulwind, and she's moved into Westport and brought her keen sense of style and excellent food with her. Her sharp property at the port end of town is described as 'the house for the town to socialise'. Emily's food will ensure that indeed is what happens. Dishes combine an eclectic mix of local and Asian and Morrocan ingredients, and much of the produce is personally sourced from local farms. Brunch, shared plates, mains, and very sweet sweet plates are the menu focus. The wine list is worth exploring.
