Description: We are open for dinner Monday to Saturday evenings. 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.

Took our friends here for their Golden Wedding Celebration whilst in the area. Made enquiries earlier in the week and was told that it was best to book as they were still very busy, and the window table was recommended for the stunning views of the harbour. When I booked the table their anniversary was mentioned, upon arrival we were... More

Mallams Restaurant at the Old Harbour (South) in Weymouth is a delightful, small (probably less than 30 covers) and classy restaurant. Our previous favourite restaurant in this area was 'Floods' but unfortunately this has now closed for an indefinite period. The local fishmonger recommended Mallams and we are very grateful. After ordering aperitifs we were treated to an 'amuse bouche'... More

We were staying in Weymouth for our first wedding anniversary so wanted to eat somewhere special and decided on Mallams based on reviews, and popularity (we had to book). The restaurant has a wonderful cosy atmosphere, with harbour views peeking through to window. Service was sleek and welcoming. We weren't rushed but weren't left unattended at any point. The disappointment... More

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to review us. We are sorry that you felt a little underwhelmed by your experience, the sole dish is one of our very best selling dishes and generally people love it. Perhaps it just wasn't your style of dish. We are pleased that we haven't put you off from returning, please do... More

It would be very easy to fall into the trap of thinking that a well established place like Mallams doesn't need any bolstering up. That may well be the case but as first time visitors here we need to throw our hat into the ring and give them a few plaudits. We were fitted in at the last minute and... More

The food in mallams is the best in weymouth and I have been to most of the good restaurants the atmosphere is great and the choice of wine is wide the menu changes with the season and are well sourced locally ,but beware of the mallam pudding in stronger then you think with Brooze but so nice

Thank you! So glad you like what we do. Our Mallam's Pudding has been on the menu for nearly twenty five years, can you believe it? We will make sure the chef's are not getting over enthusiastic in their application of the apple eau de vie though! We look forward to seeing you again soon. More

This is a fabulous restaurant, I went with friends to celebrate my husband's birthday whilst on holiday in Weymouth. Food was superb, we did not feel rushed and the service was excellent. Will definitely be going here again. Really need the recipes for the Duck Hash and the Lobster!

I have been eating at Mallams on and off for the last 18 years, the food is always excellent, never rushed and feels like a really special place to eat. I was lucky enough to go twice this visit and both occasions were perfect, once with a group of 7 and then just with my husband. The current owners who... More

Coming back to visit an old friend is always a risk. Sometimes they have not aged well! We used to come down here a lot from the Solent at weekends. Good to find ourselves back here after a few years away and the same friendly owners serving great food. We were all spoilt for choice! None of us were disappointed.... More

Mallams is a superb restaurant. The food is outstanding, with every mouthful a sheer pleasure. Yes, it may be a bit more expensive than other restaurants, but do you want a meal or an experience?

Possibly one of the best restaurant in Weymouth. The location is perfect right next to the harbour. The restaurant itself is decorated beautifully. The food itself is delicious but not quite 5 star for the price we had to pay. For starters we had some delicious mussels in a delicious sauce which I have forgotten but nevertheless tasty. For main... More
