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.

Not a great start as no record of my reservation, but no matter as it wasn't full on a Monday night and I got a table easily. Pleasant staff and my crab starter was fresh and nicely prepared and the John dory on stir fried veg was a good combination. Obviously an institution if it has lasted 25 years and... More

Congratulations to Mallams on celebrating its 25th anniversary of opening. We have been regular visitors to Weymouth for the past 10 years and enjoy eating out. We have visited other restaurants, but have found the standard of food and service at Mallams consistently first-rate and as a result it has been, and remains, our first choice. We like the way...

Mallams Restaurant is our special place. It's where we as a couple or a family celebrate - sometimes quietly as a couple, with friends or in bigger family parties. The meal is always lovely, using the best of local and regional produce with a freshly caught fish of the day. The presentation is contemporary and often so pretty a photo... More

Well what can I say about this wonderful discovery. We went to Weymouth for a quick mid-week getaway and were walking round looking for somewhere to eat. Nowhere was looking particularly inspiring so we asked for some local knowledge and were recommended Mallams. Well we were not disappointed. Small and intimate restaurant with delightful views over the river were lovely.... More
