This place was quite nice. I chose to have the chicken tikka masala. It was quite spicy but pretty tasty. A part of the naan was brick hard but apart from that I cannot fault it. Service was good too - very attentive.

Was great to see a new menu. The one before was definately limited for me. This ones a bit more out there, especially for the coming winter months approaching. When I arrived I thought I was going to be stuck with the usual burger and chips, then I realised it was a new menu, with a much better choice, and... More

Dark wood furnishings abound, sports TVs in every nook, uninspiring beer selection. It was conveniently located, ample parking, and 2 for 1 grill night meant the unimaginative meat mound was good value. As were the puds. It filled a hole... enough said.

This is the local spot for our family who live in Weymouth. We are glad they introduced us to this charming pub. We had excellent service and we split the lamb dinner, it was fantastic! This was very good value too including lot's of wine.

Visited for evening meal with sister-in-law and her husband who are rather frail. Staff treated them very kindly. Food was extremely good with large portions and very well priced. Served quickly.
