We came for mothers day lunch.There were balloons for Mothersday,of which made it pleasant.We found the carvery to be delicious,however the other meals seemed to be much smaller portions as they used to be. The staff were polite but were slow in bringing our courses and additional requests. Although a young lady apologised for forgetting a drink,we felt an uncomfortable... More

We were staying a short distance from Weymouth during the first week in March as a birthday treat for myself and my partner. We were looking for somewhere to have lunch and came across the Sunray.

We ate here on my birthday. The full rack of ribs were lots of spare ribs rather than a rack of ribs. Large portions but being the only family in there at 2pm eating the 3 staff that were on took forever to get the food to the table. They also forgot about 3 different drinks orders and tried to...

After dining out last Christmas Day we thought we'd go closer to home this year and try the Sunray as we regularly have the carvery. What an awful decision, one that ruined our Christmas Day.

Sadly for the Sunray,due to past reports, alarm bells did ring after I asked my father to find a good local.The reports on trip finder were poor.We went there... More
