I can't really tell you more than that this is a great place to go if you're a fan of cider and pies. The drinks selection is very fine, with a range of real ales and some excellent choices of cider. This is seriously a...More

How can you visit Weymouth without a meal here? We took friends and had a great meal. Ordering before 5 pm meant we have the first round of drinks free, always a good move. Highly recommended

This is the second time we have had the pleasure of visiting this restaurant - once again it didn't disappoint. Both our pies were freshly made, tasty and sat on a bed of yummy mash. The lunch menu comes with a free drink so overall...More

The mash and gravy are amazing. The steak and ale pies were so good, however knocked a point as the chicken pies really arent very good.

We've eaten in here many times and have always enjoyed it until this evening. Used to be amazing, has gone massively downhill. We both had the chicken and stilton pie (because they had 'ran out' of steak pies) and it was bland and tasteless. There...More

We, at our National British Pie Award winning Handmade Pie & Ale House are setting out to create the most premium of pies and to serve the most traditional, tastiest constantly changing ales, of which we always have some local and some from various parts of the country. We now have up to six to choose from and you are always welcome to have a FREE try before you buy!! We are proud to have our beautifully renovated old restaurant / bar where you can sit, enjoy and take in the charming surroundings whilst being looked after by our lovely caring staff and you can eat drink and be merry. Our pies are lovingly made by us, by hand, in our open-plan pie kitchen (where you can also see them being made!) With our homemade pastry and homemade fillings, no two pies are ever the same. We are constantly making our pies fresh from a selection of over 38 different flavours - we even make our own low calorie 'smart pies' and of course several vegetarian options. Also, if for some reason you don't fancy one of our multi award winning pies, we even have a NON PIE menu, which, believe it or not is called the 'We Don't Just Do Pies' menu! This has an ever changing variety of good old home cooking favourites and specialty boards, such as a meat & cheese sharer, our own crispy chicken wings, our own homemade gooey Brie Wedges in Panko breadcrumbs and 1/2 a rotisserie chicken on a board! Plus good old proper relaxing Sunday lunches, with roast leg of lamb, aged Scottish beef, stuffed rolled crispy belly pork etc. Not hungry? Alternatively, if you prefer just come and enjoy a drink in our beautiful bar and just have a good old piece of free hospitality on the side.......
