5 stars this visit. The standard of the Dorset cream tea was excellent again. The staff were friendly and the service prompt. Great place to sit in the sunshine and consume gorgeous fresh home-made scones with plenty of clotted cream and strawberry jam. Great!

Great little location as it faces the beach and a good feed of bacon, sausages, hash browns, eggs , beans and bread. You could eat cheaper a few minutes walk away down the little lanes but here you are paying for the location

Had a lunch snack here which arrived very quickly after ordering. Various food from sandwiches to chicken and fish goujons, wedges and baguettes were ordered. Hot meals and snacks and available . Very busy on a prime corner of the sea front did not detract from the standard of food or service. Noticed that they had a Trip Advisor Award... More

We ate lunch here on a trip to Weymouth. We both had a toastie, which were both nice, and they also came with salad. The milkshakes were delicious. Nice place to sit and watch the beach and relax.

Great location on Weymouth sea front with a super view across the beach and bay. Crab salad was fresh and crisp, fish pie was well filled with fish and prawns .... Obviously homemade with lashings of cheese!! Sausages in the sausage n mash were of good quality. In all a good lunch in a peaceful location on the seafront.

No table service which is awful considering prices ! So go up to the till to the most unfriendly member of staff who wasn't friendly and... More

Expensive, due to location on Weymouth sea front.. Eggs overcooked and 3 or 4 of the chips had large black bits on them. Not very appetising. Surely would have been easy to remove. Can of warm beer £2.75. Won't be eating there again

On a trip to Weymouth by coach, we were dropped off at the front and this was the nearest place for something to eat. First thing you notice when you walk in - the smell of baking! They bake cakes on the premises, you can even go and watch them making them. Had a coffee here, it was made just... More
