Good pub for food and beer

Good selection of hand pumps - four different real ales including Cumberland and an Okell's ale. Food was good and arrived timely - I did like the fact that they confirmed your order when bringing cutlery and sauces to the table after ordering to make sure there were no mistakes. Food was good too.

Have had many reports of good food at this establishment so my partner and I decided to give it a try for lunch. I have to say we were very disappointed and not a bit impressed. Call me old fashioned but one thing that annoys me is to go into a pub and be addressed by the barman whom I've... More

Our sister in law booked this venue for family & friends who attended her husbands funeral and the food was very good. The staff gave great customer service and worked extremely hard to make sure every order of food was delivered quickly. Nobody had to wait at the bar either even though they had lots of other customers to serve.... More

Myself and partner went down for the 2 for 1 steak/grill night on Monday evening. We'd heard good reports and ordered a Cowboy grill and a gammon. Table service was very good considering the bar was busy and waiting time was minimal. However, neither meal looked particularly appetising and its presentation was very average. The rump steak was okay, but... More

Delicious meal with a friend - steak and chips and burger and chips. Great service and fast food. The sundae and delicious and huge, maybe worth sharing with a partner?!

This is one of my favorite place to eat when I visit Weymouth. The food and service is always good and the price is not bad either. Ample parking and plenty of seating unless there is a function on.

This is unbelievably good value. For example curry offer, meal + drink £6.95! And the food is excellent. It is busy and so booking a table is essential. We didn't and only just managed to get a table. My overall rating would have been excellent but it just lacks a little bit of atmosphere.
