Description: We are an independently owned award-winning restaurant based opposite the train station, just down from the Jubilee Clock along the seafront. We have disabled access into the restaurant and are child and dog friendly. Our ethos is to use as many locally sourced ingredients as possible to create delicious home made, chargrilled burgers in a relaxed atmosphere with excellent customer service. We are proud members of both Dorset Food and Drink and Taste of The West and are thrilled to have achieved both a Gold Award for four years running from Taste of The West, also being named as South West Cafe of the year in 2013. We were also voted fourth best burger restaurant in the UK by Trip Advisor reviewers in 2016 and voted Best Restaurant of 2016 at the Dorset Tourism Awards and Wessex FM’s Weymouth Business of the Year in 2016. We are happy to welcome customers for coffees, teas, desserts and snacks. We are licensed and have a full bar serving a wide range of wines, draught local ales, ciders and other alcoholic drinks as well as soft drinks. We always have a number of meal deal special offers available alongside a full children's menu. Please do book in advance if possible for evenings and large parties as we can get busy. We hope to see you soon!

“good quality, good value, good service, gourmet burger.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

An excellent new addition to Weymouth for lunch or dinner. We went as a family of four on a Wednesday lunch and were very satisfied by the time we left! The burgers are freshly made and of really good quality, not only that they are very tasty! They come with seasoned fries, salad and coleslaw and when it arrived at the table I thought I perhaps should have ordered a double but, even though I have a large appetite, this filled me up. All the ingredients are of top notch quality, we had a very decent bottle of Merlot and the scrumpy is great too. Nearly everything is locally sourced, which we appreciate, and the staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. All in all, very good value for money and we will definitely return. By the way, the luxury hot chocolate is a true indulgence, but hey that's what it's all about isn't it ? The burgers are gluten free and they offer some gluten free puddings, maybe a gluten free bun option would be a great idea. Overall, excellent tasty food and great value for money.

Hi Clare B,
Thanks for the great review! We really appreciate you taking the time to give us feedback, and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your visit.
As a new business, we are always striving to be as good as we possibly can be, whilst still offering great value.
We will try to gauge if there enough of a market amongst our customers for gluten free buns, thanks for mentioning this!
Hope to see you again soon, best wishes the DBCo team x

“Good find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Have been meaning to try since read the menu not long after it first opened. I am not a great burger lover, but I really enjoyed my meal there. Honest, good quality ingredients, and local suppliers listed on the blackboard. I will definitely return, and would like to try the sweets with a coffee sometime .

“Fab!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

Visited on new years day towards the end of lunch time service which had clearly been a busy one! Being our first visit and with children we were greeted with a warm welcome and treated like a the first customer of the day. The food was quick to the table and the quality outstanding!! Has to be the best burger I have had in a long time, the children enjoyed theirs too, which is a massive result for us as they are very fussy eaters! we didnt feel pressured to leave being closing time and will definitly be returning again. BIG congrats on the new restaurant. The Vincent family x

“Tasty and good value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

Locally produced burgers, tasty and great value for money. Family friendly, if you are going to take the kids out for a burger, treat them to a proper homemade burger. Who wants to eat at McDonald's?
I have been there twice now and was made to feel welcome both times. Highly recommended!

Dear Flipface,
We're so glad you had a great meal out at The Dorset Burger Company.
We quite agree with everything you've said! For people with younger families, we also supply high chairs if needed.
Thanks so much for taking the time to review us. We are independently owned, not part of a big chain, and have only been open for 3 months, so we really appreciate your review. Hope to see you again soon. Best wishes, from The Team :)
