Description: Mallams is a long standing favourite of both locals and visitors since 1990. The restaurant is in an beautiful position with views of the bustling harbour.The Tudor beams and stone walls of the listed building have a traditional feel but are complemented by contemporary decor. The food is very definitely in the 21st century, an eclectic mix of ideas from British cuisine, with a touch of French and some Asian influence as well, always using the freshest, local produce. Seafood is much in evidence, as you would expect, but meat, game and poultry feature too.All this mixed with exciting wines and cocktails and friendly and attentive service and a really personal touch from the hands on owners make this a venue to remember. We are always happy to discuss your requirements for special celebrations, anniversaries, weddings, birthdays and we will be pleased to design a special menu just for you.

Our group consisted of 4 adults and the booking was made for a few days before New Year day. The restaurant filled up whilst we there with no tables free from 9pm onwards. We were seated in the back which at first glance I thought would be horrible as we were next to the cloakroom and near the kitchen. As... More

We have eaten in this restaurant several times over the last couple of years and every time our visit has been very successful. ~Service good and friendly. Food always excellent with a good selection of fish dishes. All courses are always excellent. Location s great -overlooks Weymouth harbour. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone.

Went back to Mallams to celebrate my friends daughter finishing her degree. We were greeted pleasantly upon arrival and seated in the window (lovely views across the harbour). The waitresses that evening were very polite and attentive. We all had 3 courses, although don't know how we managed to eat all three, all courses were beautifully presented and tasted delicious....

We have moved to Weymouth from Cornwall a year ago where we were spoilt by having an excellent restaurant very close to us, rated 1 in St Austell, the problem from there on is you judge everything against what you personally rate as the best. Mallam's seemed to have good reviews so we thought we needed to try it out.... More

Mallams, a Christmas treat, my wife and I chose our favourite restaurant to begin our Christmas. As always, it did not disappoint. There was the delightful Pomegranate Kir Royale to begin the evening. Then a wonderful chestnut soup as an amuse Bouche before moving on to the three course menu. I had crab cakes to start and duck as my... More

Just came back from an evening at Mallams and had to leave a review straight away. We were celebrating our second wedding anniversary and chose Mallams because of the good reviews. It still exceeded our expectations - the food was absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection.
