Seven of us ate at Vaughan's three meals were good and four were poor. Medium rare rump steak was well done and dry. Tbone steak was tiny. Pork three ways was poor. Scallops were greasy. The gurnard, the soup and the fillet steak was delicious. Bit disappointed over all.

Stopped to look at menu based on Tribute being on sale, realised it was somewhere all 3 of us would find something to eat as we all love steak. Popped in got a table for 18:30 the same day, on arrving back a few mins early we were made to feel at ease, drinks order taken and menus offered. Upon ordering we wer told that food might be a bit slow as the kitchen was still prepping, we ordered crab risotto, mussels and breads to start, with 2 fillet steaks medium rare and a rib eye medium. All food arrived in good time and was perfectly cooked. The steaks are on the same level as Gaucho for me - and they are local. We recommend and would definitely return if in Weymouth again. Only reason not 5 stars is I had to ask for a send drink and the deserts were not to same standard or imagination as the starters.

Great service & good food…nothing else to say!!
But I have to because reviews need to be one hundred characters long so:
The three way pork is excellent.
The fillet steak is very nice and not too expensive.
Excellent

Whilst on holiday in Weymouth my boyfriend, friends and I went to Vaughan's at about 7:30pm on a Sunday evening. We were seated quickly and allowed to choose our seats as they were not particularly busy.
The waiting staff seemed young and inexperienced although friendly. It took them more than 30 minutes to bring our drinks and unfortunately we waited over 1 hour 30 minutes for our food! I've never waited so long for food and would have left if I wasn't so hungry and knew the area better.
Not once did they let us know our food was delayed nor did anyone apologise or give us any nibbles whilst we waited. Luckily the food was delicious...if not we would not have paid!
A real shame espeically given the food was amazing.

Visited the town on a Tuesday and stumbled across this restaurant after wandering around hungry for a while. It's almost a place you might walk past as there is no outside seating and being up against the harbour side and perhaps off the main thoroughfairs, you could easily miss it, as we almost did.

We were encouraged by the modest list of options with each course on the outside of the restaurant which suggested food to be freshly prepared and cooked; this is exactly the case as we had the door open through to the chefs hard at work evidencing the same.

Price is reasonable, quality first class and well worth a visit.
