Now called "The Gloucester" and very handy for the beach

Firstly I believe this place has recently been rebranded as "The Gloucester" although our receipt still said "Moby Dicks". It is a large pub with a lovely outside area, very family friendly with a good extensive menu offering value for money. Our food was great and the kids enjoyed it... read 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

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.

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

We visited the pub for dinner on bank holiday monday. We have a 4 year old and 6 month old baby. The food was very nice, I would say, good pub grub and the atmosphere of the place was pleasant too. The staff were freindly and accommodation for our children. There is a baby changing toilet which is great. The... More
