We had been told by several people that (Moby Dick's) now renamed The Gloucester is good value for money so we thought we would try it. The meal was very good and reasonably priced, we thoroughly enjoyed it and the service was very good and the staff very friendly. If you're passing call in you won't be disappointed.

Four of us had lunch here last Sunday Two had the regular fish and chips - huge pieces of delicious fish - don't bother with the larger size portion as it must be enormous! The other two had the carvery which was truly one of the best ever. The beef was moist, the turkey tender and the pork absolutely fabulous.... More

The fact that they had sold outbid the Sunday carvery told us what we needed to know. However, the standard menu we were given to choose from was a little dull, however the food was superb! I will be going back to this restaurant/pub the next time I visit Weymouth.

Ordered two drinks. Upon each drink being pored out I had to repeat myself on what was ordered 30 seconds ago. No loud music as an excuse. Staff need concentration training. Ps middle of bank holiday afternoon and not late at night.

Thank MartynP2
