Description: Mallams is a long standing favourite of both locals and visitors since...
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.

Two course meal for my husband's birthday - food pretty good on whole but expensive. Always wanted to eat here since we moved here 8 years ago. Finally able to afford it but overall disappointed. Main issues were lack of atmosphere, terrible lift music, tables far too close together to allow you to relax. Service started fairly well but staff... More

Oh dear, we are so sorry that you did not enjoy your visit. Our staff are well aware that it is not the done thing to stand and yawn, I am sure it was simply human error and it certainly was not conveying their boredom.

Well what can I say? A visit to Weymouth is not complete unless mallams is included. The food is the most delicious tasting ever. We were given a taster of asparagus soup which should be included in the choice on the menu. Thank you very much to make our stay memorable

a nice professional welcome, the restaurant was small and tables quite close but the feel was warm and setting very nice by the harbor. food was pricey but delicious, fish was cooked to perfection. very very nice if you want to spend an extra few pounds.

Thank you. So glad you enjoyed it. Apologies if the service was a little slower than it should have been, it is peak season and we have been extremely busy, we think the rain has made everyone extra hungry this summer! We do hope you will come back and see us again very soon. More

Whenever we visit Weymouth, an evening meal here is essential. As always the food and drinks provided are of the highest quality, and the choice is superb. From the time you step through the door until it is time to leave you are welcomed and served by the friendly, attentive and professional staff.

Was there to try on some food, and we only received very poor service from SUPERVISOR. She cleared our plates without asking. Will never ever go back. I would recommend next door restaurant (No.4)

Not sure what this review is all about. Our staff do not have badges showing who they are so how do you know who the SUPERVISOR is? We always ask if our customers are finished before their plates are removed and our staff are all very polite and trained to give great customer service. If you have any further issues... More
