It was very quiet (about 12.30pm) but we ordered a pint of lime and soda each and got two tickets for the carvery which was £7.95 each. We sat in the area near the carvery and the gentleman served us... More

What a missed opportunity! Lovely position opposite the seafront and pleasant, friendly staff. Sunday carvery ( no other choice on menu) consisted of beef or pork and vegetables. Beef looked so overdone and dry that we did not try it. Pork was tough and rather dry. Vegetables mostly frozen. " Home-Made" stuffing - I don't think so. Dry Paxo. Ladies... More

Beach has great sand and plenty of things to view and do. Boat rides with jet skis not far away plus some great views. Shops are varied from the new... More

Very poor food. Wish I'd read the reviews. The order was wrong. The young lad that came out with the food had a filth tea towel. We were on holiday so passing trade.. shame because it's in a good spot on the front. Go somewhere else

We decided to call into The Dorothy Inn for lunch with some friends and our two hungry boys while on holiday in Weymouth. We should have walked straight back out! There was a musty smell in the air but as the boys were hungry we decided to stay. On ordering, we were told there was no chicken or pizza left... More
