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!

“Best burgers ever”
Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

Love this place. Have visited a few times now and I can't say a bad thing. The service is brilliant, very friendly staff. Love the feel of the restaurant, very nicely decorated.
You must buy the relish,it is amazing!
The burgers are amazing and are cooked to your liking, but try and save room for a dessert as they are also delicious. Very good value for money. Hope to be visiting soon.

Dear Sazmerv
Thank you for coming to our restaurant regularly. It is very kind of you to write us such a nice review. We are in our first year of trading and spreading the word to other customers really helps us. As you may know, we have just won a gold 'Taste of the West' award which we are really proud of. Our lunch and evening meal deals are particularly good value, and we hope that you are able to come again soon!
Thanks so much for taking the time to review us,
Best wishes
Emma and Ross

“Best Burger Ever !!!!!!!!”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Spent a fantastic day in Weymouth topped off by the best burger ever. Used Trip Advisor to find as they are the top rated in Weymouth, and have to say they do not disappoint. Service is friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. They will mix the menu to suit you. The food is brilliant. The benches add a really friendly atmosphere. Cannot recommend enough. Will be visiting again!!!!

“Brilliant Best Burgers!”
Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

I admire restaurants that choose one thing and do it well. The burgers are top notch and the homemade tomato chutney tops them off brilliantly. If you want fresh pukka home-made burgers this IS the place!

Me and my family ate here recently while on holiday. Amazing burgers, great staff, quality atmosphere, good value. A good range of burgers on the menu, and they were very accommodating with what we did/did not want in our burgers. Overall a great experience.

The food was amazing with first class customer service in a lovely, ambient restaurant. If you enjoy good quality burgers then a visit here is a must but be warned, it's not good for diets!
