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.

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. My dessert (marmalade croissant bread and butter pudding with chocolate creme anglaise was particularly... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the owners at the Old Harbour View B&B and it is well worth a visit. The food was very tasty and well presented. We have seen some comments about service but have to say that our waitress, Hayley, was a lot of fun and we when we stayed late for a few drinks... More

I am a little confused by a review that said Mallams was 'a disappointing experience' We were also in the restaurant on Saturday evening having a great time. The buzz was cheerful.The owners are professionals and always great hosts. The staff are always consistently great and very well trained. Our food on Saturday night was outstanding. We had pigeon breast... More

It was our first visit to Mallams and was looking forward to it following all of the positive reviews and a recommendation. We are regular visitors to Weymouth and this was a special evening for a birthday meal. The scallop starter and the crab cakes were very nice but unfortunately the main course of hake with pesto was very disappointing... More

Thank you for your review. We are sorry you were disappointed by your experience. I am the owner and I personally dealt with you regarding the linguine. I thought that you were happy for me to bring out a new portion of linguine without cream which I did. If you had wanted the whole dish replaced I would have been... More

Have been going here for about 20 years or from when it started, same people running it. Never had a bad meal, always amazing, I think this is the best place to eat in Weymouth.Well worth the money you pay.If you want a view of the harbour, sit by the window.

Went there on Saturday evening for last dinner. The owners are great and really chatty & friendly. Gave us a great tip about Jenny who runs the Weymouth Pilates Centre! The food was excellent & the wine great. Think I still have half a bottle in my name there! A must in Weymouth.

With just one night in Weymouth, we had selected Mallams on the basis of its reviews. We were certainly not disappointed. Arriving 7pm on a Friday evening, the place was already quietly buzzing. The welcome was friendly and efficient; we were shown directly to our table. We were not able to take up the suggestion of a cocktail - pity... More
