My wife booked a table for 7pm. She requested a table beside the window as it provides a nice view of the harbour. Upon arrival we were escorted to the table and as we were about to be seated the staff changed their minds and we were seated in the far far corner of the restaurant with no window. It... More

We are sorry you have so many negative comments about your evening. If I can take the issues individually then I hope we can go some way to address the comments. The two window tables had both been requested but unfortunately one couple did not turn up by which time you had already been seated. It was not felt appropriate... More

We were lucky to get a table here on a Saturday night as we called in on spec, and it was well worth it. Service was just right, attentive yet allowing us time between courses to really enjoy the experience. Great cocktail and pre-dinner beers menu, as well as a good variety of both starters and mains. The fish cakes... More

A lovely small restaurant - we didnt book - we suggest you do as it was very popular. Front of house run I think by the owners who created a warm welcome and totally attentive service - a good selection of wine many by the glass and the food was totally delightful - one of the best meals we have...

Cosy little restaurant by the harbour in Weymouth. Excellent fine dining, complimentary glass of fizz if you arrive to book table between 6.15 and 6.45. Good selection of starters, fish/meat dishes and desserts. From 3/10 there is a 3 course meal available for £25. The food is delicious, finishing off with a 'yummie' is a must. Good value, fabulous meal.

My wife has had gastric problems that mean that she needs to eat relatively plain food - in the sense of not spicy, buttery or with much fat. We ate at Mallams 3 times last week and the waitresses were very helpful and attentive, making sure that we could get the food that we wanted, to the extent of replacing... More

Having read the reviews of Mallams I was really looking forward to experiencing the food here. However I decided to have a "freshly squeezed orange juice" with the juice of fresh oranges as my drink. I was amazed when I looked up from choosing the main course to see my "freshly squeezed orange juice" being poured out of a carton!!!... More

Janice G, Owner at Mallams Restaurant, responded to this review

Thank you for reviewing us. I think there must have been a misunderstanding because in our drinks list it states that the orange juice is "pure squeezed" not freshly squeezed. Unfortunately lack of space dictates that we use a good quality supplier for our fruit juices much as we would love to serve freshly squeezed juices. We are disappointed that... More

I have never before felt strongly enough to write a bad review about a restaurant, but on this occasion I feel I must vent my frustration.

Thank you for posting your review. I am very sorry that you feel this way.

Mallams is a long standing favourite of both locals and visitors since 1990. The restaurant is in an beautiful position with views of the bustling harbour.The Tudor beams and stone walls of the listed building have a traditional feel but are complemented by contemporary decor. The food is very definitely in the 21st century, an eclectic mix of ideas from British cuisine, with a touch of French and some Asian influence as well, always using the freshest, local produce. Seafood is much in evidence, as you would expect, but meat, game and poultry feature too.All this mixed with exciting wines and cocktails and friendly and attentive service and a really personal touch from the hands on owners make this a venue to remember. We are always happy to discuss your requirements for special celebrations, anniversaries, weddings, birthdays and we will be pleased to design a special menu just for you.
