After a couple of hours on the beach, what could be needed to finish a great afternoon ? Yes, a good Dorset Cream Tea which the Cactus Tea Rooms provided !! Have to admit that not the best scone I have eaten but the Coffee and Walnot Cake was super yummy. The tea was great as well - nothing fancy... More

Popped in here for a quick snack when visiting Weymouth. It's a beautiful, clean bistro with lovely sea views. The food was delicious and fresh and was well presented when served. The only negative I have is their pricing....a little overpriced for what it is. Overall, it was great and would recommend it for some delicious food 🌯

Popped in for a quick late afternoon tea and cakes. Staff very friendly and very helpful when asking about ingredients due to our son's allergies. Nice tea with extra hot water, two lovely homemade cakes. The flapjack tasted slightly stale unfortunately. Lovely spot overlooking the beach. Meals that others were eating looked nice and were reasonably priced.

Visited with my partner wanting to grab some lunch. Menu is pretty basic but does have quite a good range. We both had toasties, simple but they were really good. Didn't have any cake bit saw them as we went to order and they looked amazing. You can see the sea from the tables, the staff were lovely and the... More

Tried this place on a rainy morning and went back nearly everyday either for a drink/snack or a meal. We thought the food was great and the service excellent. We certainly spent a bob or two in there. We're going again this August and will certainly be going back

Visited the tea rooms while on holiday in Weymouth. Just a stones throw from the beach, it is a very clean and smart looking bistro. When we arrived the place was very busy and there were no tables available inside. It was a bit windy outside but as the sun was out we decided to order drinks and sit in... More
