A warm welcome on a wet Easter Sunday was received upon arrival. The staff were friendly and helpful. Service was excellent and I was made to feel like important despite the place being busy. The luxury hot chocolate was fantastic and the Portland Crab Sandwich was well worth the money, stuffed full with crab and plenty of flavour.


Any visit is not complete without a slice of homemade cake, I chose the Dorset Apple cake with was wonderful.

All the food brought served looked delicious with generous portions.

Definitely worth a return visit.

Four of us ate here for lunch on what was a busy and glorious spring day in Weymouth. We all opted for various different light lunches and they were nice. The service was on the slow side, but to be fair, they did say there would be a 30 minute wait when we placed our order. Just afew little pickey things really, too much cheese in the cheese bagette and red onion always goes better than chunky white onion and I thought the crab sandwich could of been alittle prettier. I think by presenting it on fresh, chunky bread with a crusty edge would of been lovely. It was just too big and messy, sorry!! Apart from that, the staff were friendly and the cafe itself was very clean. We would eat there again.....Just one more thing, the kids LOVED the ultimate hot chocolate

We were very regular customers of the 'Original' Cactus Tea Rooms, but this weekend we finally visited the 'New' Cactus Tea Rooms. Our meal was very nice (Mediterranean vegetable risotto and Trio of butchers sausages with onion gravy and mash) and our deserts just as good (Lemon cake with ice-cream and sticky toffee pudding with ice-cream) . Portion size was very good. We also had 2 alcoholic drinks and all this for a very reasonable price and views of the beach too....what more do you want????

Great little place for breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea. We went to the Cactus Tearooms a couple of times during our visit to Weymouth. The Bistro is on the seafront just opposite the fairground rides.

On the first visit I choose the coffee and walnut cake, delicious moist cake that left you wanting more. My husband had a toastie with bacon and cheese; he was happy with his choice and must have enjoyed it because he wanted to go back for one later in the week.

On our second visit I also had a toastie with tuna and could resist another slice of the coffee and walnut cake. I would definitely recommend for lunch or for just a slice of cake and coffee. You have the option whether you want to sit inside or outside.

The cream tea was good but the service was not. It was ok but they did not speak loud enough to hear what one of the waiter said. Overall the food was great would recommend.
