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. NOW OPEN EVERY EVENING>

Had this restaurant recommended and we weren't disappointed. From arriving to leaving we were attended to courteously but were not rushed. The food was superb.All in all a great dining experience. Thank you to all the staff at Mallams for such an enjoyable evening we look forward to visiting again.

Ate here Saturday night and have no complaints at all. Do not eat here if you expect to be in and out in a hour. It's not that kind of place. It is about having a relaxed night with good food and drink. There was quite a while between courses and this was a plus point. CHILL. ENJOY. Food was... More

I booked Mallams on the advice of the B&B we were staying in for our anniversary meal. We arrived and were shown to our table which was by the window. I asked if we could move it to give my husband a bit more space as he was squashed in with no room. There was plenty of space to move... More

I apologise in advance for the long review but having done the job myself, I feel very strongly about poor service, especially when it comes from the owners themselves!! We arrived at Mallams on Saturday night but instead of being greeted with a nice warm welcome, we were greeted by a grumpy mature lady (who I assume was the owner)... More

Lovely setting on the quieter side of the Old Harbour, nice food and wine, good service. Nice for a special occasion. Well maintained ancient building with original features and obviously well cared for and much loved by the current owners

Thank you for your kind words. We are pleased you enjoyed the location, the food and the ambience. Our Tudor building is a labour of love that is for sure but it feels kind of comfortable to be in we think and does exude a certain charm.

We came here for dinner on a Wednesday night and were greeted by a man with no smile,no warm welcome in fact not even a 'Good Evening' It is a small restaurant so this lack of warmth was compounded! We had a new waitress serving us who was learning the ropes but she was friendly and warm! The food was... More

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.

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.
