Went with friends who were visiting the area. Having been there before I knew we could expect a decent meal. We were not disappointed. It was also a night where they were doing two meals for the price of one. So very good value for money. The steaks were cooked to perfection. It was very busy, but we did not... More

Very poor quality. Badly presented and just awful. Eaten here many times and yes I know it is pub food but this was just a waste of money.

This is one of my best places to visit when going to Weymouth. You get a Great meal, plenty of it and the prices are fair. Some evening there are specials going on. Its a Marston Public House and they are always good. Ample parking and seating albeit some nights you may be best to book.

We ordered 2 10oz gammon and 1 10oz rump, one gammon was very chewy the other was burnt in places and the steak was not 10oz before cooking!!! We also ordered a side of garlic bread, this was really soggy. Staff worked hard and we're friendly. For the money we spent I would not go back to give them another... More

So, I have visited this pub before but recently I have been diagnosed as being gluten intolerant, so it becomes very difficult for me to find a place that can either offer gluten-free foods or have enough knowledge to know what goes in their products. Therefore, this review will be based on me as a gluten intolerant person and my... More

Very tasty food, varied menu, from curry to beetroot and orange burger (very nice), busy place but short waiting times for service, staff very friendly, been back twice and will defiantly be going back to work through the menu ! Large car park, outside terrace. Really good prices too with week day meal offers. - FAB.

Spontaneous lunch here. Amazing BBQ Ranch Burger, so juicy and best sweet potato chips ever. Really clean pub and attentive staff. All meals a good price. Bonus watching Wimbledon on our own tv at the table. We will definitely be coming back
