Very friendly staff serving great basic fare. Beautiful views across Weymouth bay to Portland and to the Weymouth sea front and harbour. Fresh soup changed daily. Can get crowded during peak periods all year round. A regular stop over for us.

There was free parking on the road, which is most unusual for Weymouth. We had a lovely cream tea (with very large scones) and enjoyed the fantastic sea views. The service was very friendly.

Where better for a warm welcome, great coffee and excellent food after a dog walk that's set your ears on fire on a cold Jurassic coast. The views remain excellent a brooding Portland today under a cotton wool sky and the Purbeck coastline in relief...More
