Description: NOW OPEN EVERY EVENING. 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.

We first visited Mallams over 20 years ago on our first family holiday to Weymouth. As our eldest daughter was a baby at the time, we were not exactly well off, but decided to treat ourselves to a restaurant meal. I can honestly say that the food in Mallams was the best I had ever tasted at the time, and... More

Mallams in Weymouth, situated by the old harbour, is a real find and an absolute must if you are looking for a great meal in a delightful setting. So good was this restaurant that I ate in it two nights running! Try the pigeon breast starter or the mussels, both delicious. Main courses include superb guinea fowl, pork stuffed with... More

We visited Weymouth for a 5 day break last week and ate at Mallams one evening. We were a party of four and shown on arrival to our table by the window, perfect. Our waitress offered the drinks list which was extensive and interesting. We all had a starter and mains but I was the only one that could make... More

My husband and I visited on our 1 yr wedding anniversary and felt fairly special, the atmosphere was nice and found the staff helpful and pleasant. I tried some new food of scallops and guinea fowl which were both lovely. I would recommend this restaurant for special occasions .

We were looking forward to dining at Mallams and booked a table during our recent stay in Weymouth. upon arrival the reception we received seemed very aloof, but the food we ate was absolutely top rate and we enjoyed every bite. However, the service suddenly went from silver service restaurant standard to cafe standard once the deserts were served. Instead... More

Thank you for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed the food we serve here at Mallams.
