“More than a cafe”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

Popped in Sunday lunchtime on a lovely warm day. The views are spectacular back to Weymouth and along the coast.

The quality of the food far exceeded our expectations. The fish finger sandwiches were a particular favourite! I shared a seafood platter for two (£20-00) which was also very good (especially the crab) with the crusty bread supplied.

Not very big inside but ample seating outside on warmer days.
Well worth the walk up the hill.

“Great homemade pie”
Reviewed April 5, 2014 via mobile

The location is absolutely fabulous with views across Weymouth bay towards Portland. My steak and ale pie was very tasty with crispy chips (frozen & chunky but good) and nicely cooked and well drained peas. My mum's crab salad was delicious and fresh. Good service and friendly with it.

“Great Food and Drink. Perfect for a Warm Summers Day”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

Stopped off here for a light bite after running a 10K along the seafront in the beautiful sunshine.

I shared a lovely seafood platter that was fresh and bursting with flavour, complimented with 2 refreshing lemonades. Lots of great locally sourced food and drink served here.

The portion was generous and service was good and I'm told reasonably priced - I didn't pay :)

On a sunny day it's beautiful to sit outside on the green that looks out toward the water and there's plenty of tables.

Highly recommend for a summers lunch in the fresh sea air.
