Me and my friend popped into this pub on a Friday afternoon. It was very quiet. I had full English breakfast which was told was very good. Sorry, but it wasn't! The size of the portion was small compared to what we got at the hotel we were staying at. The sausage wasn't very nice and it just seemed the... More

Lovely seafront position where you can sit in or outside and people watch. Reasonable prices, Good snacks,lovely, helpful, friendly staff and dog friendly too. We had the benefit of fabulous weather during our few days spent in beautiful Weymouth.

Has just reopened and although I may have been a little UTI of alcohol; outside the establishment I was physically pushed over by a member of staff. I have now sprained my wrist and I question if the staff have had relevant up to date training about the way people are looked after.

We visited to celebrate my Nan's birthday. The food was really nice, homemade and huge portions. The services was really slow. To be fair some of us got our food quickly but others had to wait ages. I would visit again but perhaps in a smaller group.

We stopped here for a well earned drink, the terrace overlooking the beach makes it an ideal location to stop and have a drink or food whilst people watching. There is a food menu as well as a carvery on set days.

having recently moved to Weymouth my son and daughter in law recommended we try the carvery it was awesome great value for money and the granddaughter loved her kiddies bag. We watched the moto cross from upstairs it saved the whole family getting cold outside we will definitely be going there again. Thanks to all the friendly staff :-)

Ordered drinks and afew minutes later ordered... More

Pretty much everything said.😊 Oh ok 200 words then lol. Ordered a rare rump steak with chips waited half hour but considering its a universal unwritten rule of a min of 20mins for food, unless you want food rammed with chemicals you can have that from a well known outlet,in a matter of minutes.The Decor is lovely nicely spaced tables...
