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.

Good tasty food served in a small restaurant overlooking the harbour. I had scallops and hake both of which were fresh and well cooked. My wife had an excellent fish casserole. Decent though expensive bottle of Fleurie went down well

Party of 5 , Friday night, cossetted in a sweet part of the small dining room. Very relaxed and informal, with heavy hints of quality. Lovely young waiting staff, humouros and accommodating.

Thank you for a very entertaining review! We are so pleased that overall you had a great experience. We will look at the presentation of the fish dish, it can be difficult sometimes to make a piece of fish look overly attractive, we are glad that the eating was far superior to the overall look, that is what counts at...

This has been my favourite restaurant in Weymouth for some years and it did not disappoint. Family business and such good quality food, drinks and service. Definitely for special occasions as it is quite pricey but well worth it. Excellent value for money.

Only one night in Weymouth and we struck lucky with this restaurant. They fitted us in to a busy Friday night. Great service and food meant we left feeling content and feeling pleased to have found this little gem. We all had fish dishes which were fresh and well presented.

Thank you! We are glad that you found us too and that we were able to accommodate you. It is advisable to book at this time of year but if you are patient we can normally find a table a bit later on in the evening. We hope you will have the opportunity to visit us again. More

Delicious well cooked food and attentive service. This was a busy Friday evening and the restaurant was packed full. Each course came out perfectly cooked with no long wait. My only criticism would be that the tables are a little close together, but that would not put me off eating there again. Good quality food, not a cheap night out,... More
