Looked nice outside. Looked fine inside. Headless and tasteless San Miguel. Overpriced wine. Staff rude. Staff disinterested in their work & vocally moaned about it being busy for a Tuesday. Management not much better.

We always visit this pub when we are in Weymouth. We find the food is good / nice proportions / good menu selection / right price. The staff are helpful and friendly. Even when it is busy, the food arrives promptly. There is ample parking and a good outside space for when it is sunny.

The quality of the food was very good, but the cost of the food and drink was slightly expensive, compared with some of the other inns we used around the area. Location wise it is very good, easy to get to and park.

I regularly go to the Spa for a meal in the evenings but it is usually so busy it's important to reserve a table. The quality and value of the food is exceptional. I enjoy the curry options on a Wednesday evening and occasionally have a steak which is always very tender and tasty. There is a garden at the... More

Revisited this pub for lunch today, for the first time in a long while, although we are local. Usual fast, good, value for money food. We chose our comfort food, burgers, which were good. We followed this with a big sundae for my husband and a scrummy piece of carrot cake for me. We will be back

Whenever my wife and I travel to Weymouth, (at least 6 times a year) we always visit the Old Spa for a meal and bottle of wine and we have never been disappointed. The staff are always very friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them.
