steak deal

No need to book. The young waitress was very polite and courteous. We went for the steak and wine deal. The rump steak was beautiful, we had the medium house wine and a bottle of water. Did not have to wait too long for our food which was presented well and all for £24.95. Restaurant was just... read more

We found the food at Shelley's acceptable, our starters were nice, the main meal again nice however the chips served were far too well cooked verging on burnt. Its clear alot of heart has gone into this place however the decor is cheap, tacky silk flowers, wall canvases that can be brought from Argos/ebay, the tables and chairs are like... More

Disappointing to hear some of your comments about the experience you've had with us here. Particularly the claim that we're not Fine Dining. Of course I have to disagree. We have especially good food such as our Pan Seared Duck, Tournedos Spiced Salmon, Red Pepper and Spinache Stuffed Crepes, which we serve in a formal manner. I am in left... More

We were taking a stroll along the seafront, in the beautiful Weymouth sunshine, when we came across this restaurant, which is downstairs from a hotel. What a find! The restaurant was very nicely laid out with tasteful decor and with soothing music in the background. The staff were very engaging, and created a pleasant atmosphere. Now for the food. Probably...

We enjoyed a fabulous meal at Shelly's restaurant this evening. John, the chef, is incredible and all of the team working with him were able to provide a thoroughly enjoyable evening. I had the Salmon with lemon and dill risotto and the flavours were superb. Thank you.

Living in a popular seaside town means lots of choices for eating out. One of my favourites is just a few minutes walk from home – Shelley’s Restaurant at the Richmoor Hotel on Weymouth’s seafront esplanade. Their Sunday roast is simply the best value in town. Chef John McNally offers a choice of four different roast meats, a variety of... More

We popped down to Weymouth because we had heard from some friends about Shelley's and we were certainly glad we did. Despite the bank holiday we were able to book a table at last minute thanks to the waiter Jack squeezing us in! All the staff were friendly and made us feel welcome. Now the food was beautiful.

This is about our fifth visit. The staff are friendly and efficient. The food is excellent - we have the carvery. The turkey breast is moist and succulent (we have not sampled the other joints but there is plenty of choice), the roast potatoes crunchy, vegetables beautifully cooked and presented. Really good value for money. Parking no problem. Recommend it... More

Good service and excellent food are a rare combination we have found during our 3 weeks of eating out in the UK. But Shelley's offers both. Pork belly was superb with the crispy skin it promised and soft juicy pork below; the steak was cooked to perfection with hand cut chunky chips and veggies. We could not resist the urge... More
