We were in Weymouth for a short stay and the local restaurant was fully booked so we ended up here. We have a local marston's so we knew what to expect, or thought we did. We expected cheap, warm wholesome food and nothing more. I can't speak for the beer as we shared a perfectly decent bottle of wine, but... More

We all tasted it from our group and no one liked it at all. The menu offered 3 vegan meals that I could see, don't fancy a curry at lunchtime. will wait to... More

I had a Jalfrezi with chips (not a rice lover) but the Jalfrezi is supposed to be flavourful with the peppers, onions etc but the sauce just overtook it and that was all I could taste a hot sauce with no flavour.
