“What a gem!”
Reviewed May 16, 2014 via mobile

Me and my friends were just strolling through the square on a glorious day! We got approached by a lovely young lady enjoying the sunshine with a smile on her face. That was it she lured us in to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine whilst having a delicious lunch! I had scallop and bacon salad absolutely amazing infact one of the best Iv EVER eaten. Then my friend had the seafood chowder with chefs rough cut chips as expected it was splendid! The waitress then went on to do the whole of outside alone so elegantly and happy whilst the staff inside we're friendly and talkative as well! So glad we have now found our favorite spot in the square I would recommend it to anyone! I will be back soon.

“Best Breakfast in Town”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

A glorious sunny Saturday morning started with an al fresco breakfast at The Monkeys Fist. Four of us all had a variation of their Dorset Breakfast for which there was a bit of a wait but what we would expect of a freshly cooked breakfast of that quality and it didn't disappoint. Indeed it was so good we went back on Monday for another breakfast but sat indoors this time as it was a bit cool to eat outside. Service was friendly with the right balance of attentiveness and leaving you to enjoy the food; quality on both days was fabulous and if we're in Weymouth again, we'd definitely go back.

“FANTASTIC One of...if not the best places in Weymouth.”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

Amazing food cooked to perfection. Couldn't ask for anything to be done differently. The chefs worked very hard to make sure everyone was not waiting for their food. If that wasn't enough the food was displayed beautifully. The lamb was just how I asked very tender with the gratan potatoes. you could clearly see and taste that they were made fresh the same day. Thumbs up to the chefs. Also, the waitressing staff were very enthusiastic, polite and attentive. He really represented the business beautifully. We will be back again 100%

“Enjoyed”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

Settled on this restaurant for our wedding anniversary meal and we were not disappointed! excellent food inc. my first taste of Gurnard plus excellent Lyme Bay Scallop dish. My wife loved the Rabbit Ravioli followed by Fish Pie. Small restaurant with a cosy ambience and friendly, attentive staff. Heartily recommended
