Awful. We waited over 75 mins for food which didn't arrive and left with a refund. Of the meals which did arrive the pizza was not that great and they forgot the peas for two of the meals. No communication and the management didn't seem to care either. We will be back in Weymouth in a few weeks and if... More

Wouldn't recommend - nearly an hour to serve breakfast for 3. Very mean portions when it came. Also told 'well we did have others to serve earlier' when the place was clearly empty. Hired help also seen returning with bread half an hour after order. Rubbish don't go there.

So there was 8 of us in the party and we ended up at the Dorothy Inn at 2.30 on a Sunday afternoon. We went to the bar to order food, 4 of us were having carvery and 4 of us were ordering off the menu. We were told that the kitchen was closed, but the carvery was still available.... More

Went here on bank holiday was empty now I see why, food was not up to standard, the manager was drinking whilst working, the chef had long hair not in a hat or net! Would not recommend this place to anyone

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

I spent the weekend in weymouth and thoroughly enjoyed the time i spent at the dorothy inn. We had meals there over the weekend and the food was amazing. The staff were polite and very helpful. After reading a previous reveiw i was sceptical but i must say they were wrong. The dorothy inn is not the pub it used... 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.
