A Great Sandwich Stop!!

Just a quick impromptu visit for lunch... I personally had never visited before but it didn't disappoint. I had a Cheese & Ham Baguette and it was delicious... A larger portion that expected too!! The only thing letting it down was a packet of crisps to go alongside. But overall, a great place for... read more

We had lunch there on a recent busy Saturday (11/7). A good choice of menu served quickly by friendly staff, a typical seaside cafe trying compete with modern Bistros. Perhaps a little overpriced for the portion sized. £28 for 3 meals, tea for 2 and a fanta, Like a lot of Weymouth at this time of year, it does not... More

A very pleasant lunch in this light and airy restaurant on a warm day. I had the vegetarian choice of goats cheese and butternut squash lasagne and my husband a Ploughman's with choice of 1/2 cheddar and 1/2 Stilton or all cheddar. Both were served promptly and were delicious: presentation was good and portions were large. I noticed there was... More

We were here on an afternoon after a busy day walking around the Royal Arms Museum and a long strong along the seafront. Some of us by this time were quite hungry and so opted for a burger and chips dinner while me and my wife had cake and a coffee. The cake was soft and fresh, the lemon cake... More

Popped into here for lunch on a visit to Weymouth. It had a good selection of meals at reasonable prices. The cafe was well set out and all tables neat and clean. The food was served piping hot and was very tasty. Would be happy to eat there again.

Fabulous food and fabulous service. One member of staff ( Harriet ) stood out as she was so courteous and helpfull, a delightful young lady. We look forward to returning here on our next trip to the Weymouth and will not hesitate to recommend it to our friends and family.

Nice cup of tea with a generous slice of Dorset Apple Cake made next door by hand. No airmiles or fancy packaging, just honest to goodness flavour!
