Went to this restaurant following their accreditation after hearing about their award as them being the best restaurant in Weymouth........if this is best, the food industry must have very low expectations of the status of a good place to eat in the town. Besides having to leave our coats on the whole time as it was cold, as did other... More

Thank you Chef and All the staff at The Dining Room. 15 of us visited for the Chefs 6 course tasting and it was superb. We all travelled from various parts of the UK for a friends special birthday and overnight stop. The Parsnip soup was deliciousness, and each course that followed. Cannot recommend highly enough. Thank you.

Booked for a celebration this was extremely disappointing. The food was okay at best but terribly over-cooked at worse and the service was very very slow. As a result, for the quality of the meal we had we felt it was extremely expensive. On the positive side, the staff were friendly and the atmosphere was good. However, we will not... More

Had a lovely meal here last night - advisable to book - was extremely busy even on a cold miserable Monday night! Small restaurant with an open kitchen - very nice intimate atmosphere. Menu smalll and well put together. Both the crab and mackerel starters went down well, as did the steak mains and the sea bass. Probably could have... More

My wife and I had previously visited the Dining Room in the summer of 2014, we walked in off the street while on holiday in a near by Haven. It was mid-week, no booking and it was one of the most enjoyable experiences, the food and service was amazing, so much so that we had vowed to go back, if... More

The waiting staff were friendly and incredibly helpful, allowing us to try the wine before we made our choice. They were fantastic about accomodation my complex dietary requirements, to the point where the chef came over to chat to... More

We have used this Restaurant a few times now and found it to be very good. Last night, a Friday, we decided to book a table and take advantage of their Friday Night Surf and Turf for 2 which is advertised in the restaurant. On arrival we were getting ready to order a starter and the waiter asked if we... More

Booked a table for two. We were shown table and I didn't feel I would even fit behind it. I think a size 10 women would have still been a bit squashed. We were offered another table with slightly more room. Upstairs was fully booked so had to take the table. Every time the waiter came by my husband had... More

Excellent food last night, 3 courses every plate was empty. Delicious. Nice selection on the menu, great local produce and fab fish dishes which you expect but don't always get in seaside venues, presentation excellent and portion size just right. A little gem within Weymouth.
