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.

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 :-)

We had parked the car at 12-49 and paid for 2hrs thinking that this would be plenty of time to find an eatery and have a meal (how wrong we were )and arrived at the pub around ten past one. 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...

Terrible service and after asking how much longer our meals would be, we received them freezing cold! We complained and the manager who spent most of her time scoffing food at the bar heard our complaint and did nothing at all. Seriously, do not waste your money at this eatery - looks nice when you're walking past but appearances can... More

I ate at this pub twice with my little boy during my stay in Weymouth, mainly for convenience because it is in a prime location opposite the beach however I was very disappointed with the food. It was unappetising and overcooked and it was not cheap. I would advise that people venture off the sea front to look for better... More

I am very easily pleased in a place and it takes a lot for me to really dislike a place. There was one barmaid who was really helpful and very friendly, but the overall experience was awful. We ordered three sandwiches - and only two came out. One of them was wrong so had to be returned. We all ate... More

Firstly, there were two bar staff when I went in today (1/8/14) a young dark haired girl and a older dark haired lady. the girl just about managed to crack a slight smile but the older out of the two was MISERABLE! clearly hates her job and made me feel like as nuisance for daring to order at the bar!...
