“fantastic food,and brilliant service.!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

as we live in weymouth this is not the first time we have been to this pub for a meal,and did not even know they were on trip advisor,thats why i am now writing a review,my wife and myself have just got back home from the spa after going for the steak night,we both had sirloin steaks and must honestly say they were the best sirloin steaks we have had for a long long time,we have been there for the curry night on a wednesday and we have been to the carvery on a sunday and again the food as been faultless,the bar staff are very friendly and so are the waiting staff as well,as for one couple on here saying they have waited 90 minutes for there food i really do find that extremely hard to believe,yes wednesdays curry night is busy but there is know way you would wait 90 minutes for your food at this place,will we be going again,YES and reccomend this place to all locals and visitors alike.!!!!!

“Bad service, bad food.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

We were aware that the pub/restaurant was very busy when we went on Thursday last. To be fair we were told that there would be a wait of 45 minutes and their was a complementary bottle of wine with our meals but 90 minutes later I had to go in search of our meals which arrived a few minutes later. The steak was over cooked and the steak and ale pie tasteless and devoid of meat. When the waitress came to collect the plates she asked if we had enjoyed our meal and when we explained the problem she shrugged her shoulders and said she had received a lot of complaints. We suggest you avoid this place when it is busy!!

“good food and good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

This is our local and we go there about once a month. The food is always good, and also good value. They have a 2 for £10 menu as well. Thurs you get free bottle of wine with main meal, Weds is curry night, Sunday carvery etc. It can be noisy if footie is on, but we usually dont go then. Good for families, and play area out the back in the garden.

“Excellent old weymouth pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

does what it says on the tin. Treat this place as a slightly upmarket "Wetherspoons". Worth a trip for a value meal.
