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.

Wife and I enjoyed a meal at Mallams on Monday 20th. Appetisers, starters, main courses and service were all as excellent as ever. I strongly recommend you try Mallams when you're in, or near, Weymouth. We have visited a few times before and have never been disappointed. Both waitresses were great.

Returned to Mallams again and, as always, the food was outstanding. Start to finish. The downside. The appetisers arrived after 40 minutes and were cold. A shame as through the tepid heat it was obvious they would have been very tasty. The other problem, as listed by other reviewers, is the sullen, almost surly, attitude of one of the front... More

A lovely restaurant on the Quay at Weymouth. A nice touch is the cocktail menu you are given to pick a drink whilst you look at the food menu. Sets the night for a good relaxing experience throughout. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable about the food and menu. An excellent meal, could not fault the food or the... More

A group of five ladies celebrating 30 years of friendship drew us to Mallams on the 11th October. How lucky we were! From the first view from our charming window table, to the delicious cocktail(I asked for a Margarita, not on the menu but promptly whisked up for me anyway)we were treated so well. The food was totally delicious, fabulous... More

Having visited Brambles a few years back, we visited again on Saturday with friends. The starter was good - mussels for 1 diner, crab cakes for another, venison meatballs and a 4th non descript dish for our friends. But then came the main meals. The fish was excellent quality; Cod; red mullet; hake but all 3 dishes were cold. Our... More

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
