This is actually called The Gloucester? My family and I were staying in Weymouth for the week and decided to have an evening meal here but we wish we hadn't. The service was poor but the real issue was the food it tasted vile, my chilli con carne resembled dog food and my husband's steak burger was non edible so... More

While on holiday we visited the Gloucester and we weren't disappointed the steaks come out on heated black volcanic rock and you then cook it to how you like myself and my wife both had the sirloin and wasn't disappointed super sweet and it comes with chips and salad brilliant experience

It was late afternoon and we were starving so we decided to eat in the gloucester. It was previously known as moby dicks. It has a very nice decor and welcoming bar staff. We had burger n chips, fish n chips and steak n ale pie and chips. Portions were very generous and also came with a complimentary serving from... More

We tried this on our first night in Weymouth as it wasn't too far too walk.The staff were very helpful and friendly which makes such a difference to your enjoyment of a meal. They reserved us a quiet table as requested and were very prompt in service. The food was good and the prices reasonable. The beef and ale pie... More

We where visiting Weymouth for a few days and where trying to find some where to eat, outside this restaurant/pub was a menu and this helped to know if it served the food we wanted to eat. There are a few steps going down to the pub, you can eat outside because they had heated lamps outside with nice garden... More

We had a really great meal, very different from what we usually have served up to us when we dine out as the meat / fish was served to us on a Hot Rock' and we cooked it on the 'Rock' in front of us , so if it was not as we wanted it, then it was your own... More

We went in on Father's Day, although it was fairly busy I didn't look unmanageable. We waited 45 minutes for food before asking someone when we were informed that we were next, no one had told us of the delays at all and then 20 mins later the food arrived with no kind of apology for the wait at all!...

The outside eating area is down many steps so having a wheelchair we thought we would be able to visit. It looked so nice and the menu looked good. Then we saw a sign they had put out for wheelchair users and buggies to go around the back. This entrance was perfect with no steps and led past toilets which... More
