NO GLUTEN FREE CREAM TEA, but somehow TripAdvisor flags this place up with the gluten free tag. In this day and age a single gluten free option isn't good enough for this label. A nut cake I didn't want isn't reason enough to have walked all the way from Weymouth station. The place is ok and this time TripAdvisor is... More

Small menu which is usually a good sign. Simple food prepared well with a French theme. Friendly service, good value for money. No complaints.

This is not a tea shop, it's a proper bistro, just not open in the evenings, shame! For breakfast; ham, eggs and toast, simple, filling and flavoursome, For lunch; confit duck, tartiflette, divine and good value, Thoroughly recommended, but please consider opening in the evenings!

Came here on a very warm sunny Sunday in August, so everywhere was very busy. There was a group playing in the square so entertaining with mainly sixties music. Only white wine seemed to be Chablis, which was very nice but at £24.50 a bottle was a bit pricey for an afternoon snack. We both had the trout and leek... More

Tea was delicious and the slice of victoria sponge more of a wedge and absolutely delicious - very filling, well worth the money and we went back again next day.

Visited here three times in two weeks whilst holidaying in Weymouth. The crab sandwiches are like doorsteps and really good value. My husband had the crab baguette equally as tasty and the baguette is warm. I also had goats cheese and chutney baguette which was also delicious. Lovely white cotton table cloths and the biggest pot of tea ever and... More

Went here for breakfast on Saturday after a recommendation from a friend. We sat just inside and were quickly shown the menu. I chose ham and egg on toast and some crumpets. I can't fault it, the eggs were poached perfectly and sat on top of two massive thick hunks of ham and thick buttery toast. Left feeling very full... More
