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. Having booked a table at Mallam's in Weymouth a couple of years ago and being ushered to a table right next to the toilet and after asking politely to be moved to a more... More

Great food, excellent service, expensive but you get what you pay for. A very nice dining experience. Small, but not too intimate.

Thank you for reviewing us. We are delighted you enjoyed everything. We do of course do meat, game and poultry on our menu, perhaps next time you might like to experience some of our non-fish dishes and we look forward to welcoming you. More

Not normally fond of these type of restaurants set in old quay side houses (small and cramped) but this was different , we were seated at the rear of the restaurant and it sometimes felt like we were having dinner made just for us,The food was really good and the service was warm and friendly,only one chef working that night...

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.
