Has a rustic style and delightful British cuisine. The meal was delicious and expertly prepared. Highly recommend to all as it is the best restaurant in Weymouth and is a hit with locals and holidaymakers.

Mallams has been a family favourite for many years. From beautifully made classics to yummy surprising touches they have made many an occasion special. Highlights from this visit were a deliciously rich fish soup starter, perfectly cooked lemon sole and orange bread and butter pudding made with crossiants. Extra touches included an amuse bouche of spinach soup with a lovely... More

In brief a party of 20 of us were spending over £500 on our work Xmas lunch. The Xmas menu options were published and ordered months in advance. Only on arrival were we told that a side of bread and vegetables weren't included in the agreed price. During the meal one main course was not as the agreed plan resulting... More

Top food which I could not fault, I personally had the rack of lamb which was superbly cooked. Their eye for detail is what sets the restaurant above the rest in Weymouth. Thanks once again.

From start to finish the service was 100% - the food was amazing and the waiting staff (two who we now know were the proprieters) were so accommodating, knowledgeable and nothing was any trouble. Food amazing - they certainly know their stuff.

We'd not heard of Mallams prior to our visit, but it was chosen by friends, and they certainly chose wisely. The welcome we received was warm, and we knew straight away that we were in a restaurant who cared about us as much as the food. And what food! Beautifully presented, each course tasted wonderful. The drinks, too, were far... More

We discovered Mallams about 20 years ago when on a weekend break in Weymouth to celebrate my partner's birthday. We were so impressed that we have been back for a birthday treat nearly every year since (and a good few times in between). We have been lucky enough to have dined in a few top rated restaurants over the years... More

We got a bit lucky as we hadn't booked and it soon filled up. The waitress staff were very attentive, knew the menu well and gave some good advice.

Description
Mallams is a long standing favourite of both locals and visitors since 1990. The restaurant is in an beautiful position with views of the bustling harbour.The Tudor beams and stone walls of the listed building have a traditional feel but are complemented by contemporary decor. The food is very definitely in the 21st century, an eclectic mix of ideas from British cuisine, with a touch of French and some Asian influence as well, always using the freshest, local produce. Seafood is much in evidence, as you would expect, but meat, game and poultry feature too.All this mixed with exciting wines and cocktails and friendly and attentive service and a really personal touch from the hands on owners make this a venue to remember. We are always happy to discuss your requirements for special celebrations, anniversaries, weddings, birthdays and we will be pleased to design a special menu just for you.
