Great selection of drink and great food

Nice to sit outside if weather good. Good food and drink. They had a sign on the bar for cocktails which were about £7 each but when we asked they said they weren't doing them until the evening. Shame, cos we really wanted to try them

Decided to eat here as it was close to the BnB we were staying in, found the whole experience fabulous, cosy feel and friendly atmosphere, the food was surprisingly good, I never expect excellence but this place really surprised me would def go back next time I visit Weymouth.

The staff were freindly and accommodation for our children. There is a baby changing toilet which is great. The... More

We went in the evening for a meal, around 10 of us, got a table and ordered from a decent range off the menu. Noone had a complaint, the fishcakes were lovely, chips of good quality and salad of good taste too, it looked fresh. A friend had the large fish and chips, so large he couldnt finish it, so...

I came here with a friend I ordered a burger and she ordered macaroni cheese and garlic bread. When my burger came the bun was soggy and the burger was over cooked. The chips that came with it was edible but would not return. My friends garlic bread at first looked organic when she bit into it this was also... More

Ate here twice on out trip to weymouth. One breakfast and one dinner. Ask for the steak cooked on a black rock (it is not on the menu) Both meals were great value for money

Tasty,Freshly cooked food, reasonably priced, good choice of menu. atmosphere very good although even with tea lights the restraint was still a little on the dark side, we understand that the new owners from January 2015 are going to make some changes. Keep up the good work and SMASHING food!!!!
