Description: We are an independently owned multi award-winning restaurant based opposite the train station, just down from the Jubilee Clock along the seafront. We have disabled access into the restaurant and are child and dog friendly. Our ethos is to use as many locally sourced ingredients as possible to create delicious home made, chargrilled burgers in a relaxed atmosphere coupled with excellent customer service. New for Summer 2018 is Snitches, our 9-hole Indoor Crazy Golf Course, located on the first floor of the restaurant so our customers are able to enjoy a round either before or after their burger! We are fully licensed and have a full bar serving a wide range of wines, draught local ales, ciders, cocktails and other alcoholic drinks as well as soft drinks and milkshakes. We always have a number of meal deal special offers available alongside a full children's menu. Please do book in advance if possible for evenings and large parties as we can get busy. We hope to see you soon!

Several months, maybe a year, since we were here.

Nothing really has changed!

Forget everything you understand about the word "burger", and come with a brain in neutral!

The formula is simple: a VERY good quality piece of ground and cooked beef, very tasty, with some "interesting" local ie. Dorset addons. I had the "rarebit" burger with a layer of Dorset Coastal cheddar - which I know is a great cheddar as Illve in Dorset. My local market cheese stall always sells out! The fries are great; homemade coleslaw chutney etc.

The ambience in the original ( Victorian?) Weymouth infirmary is "school refrectory" - wooden long tables. Good for groups! The downside is the chatter noise level of a busy evening. Two ways to take that! Busy = popular by locals - always a good sign!

Friendly - efficient - young, mainly female staff. Noticeable that everyone appeared "on the ball". Good!

We live 25 miles away, and will return when next in Weymouth!

Was looking forward to this meal, but didn't realise the burgers came mixed with grated carrot. Appreciated its to keep them succulent and gluten free, but not a fan. Also didn't realised they were served in a Brioche Bun. I do detest these buns and will not order a burger anywhere if they come in one. I should have asked really. Coleslaw was small and in my opinion was the same as you get from the shop, a good homemade coleslaw can be amazing but this didn't taste like homemade. Wish I had also realised the fries were seasoned. Didn't like the seasoning, but appreciate some people do. Had I know this I would have skipped the fries and ordered something else to go with it. Service was A++++ and very attentive. Loved the crazy golf and think this a unique feature and great fun. I do feel it's overpriced, but understand that it's locally sourced produce and good quality meat.

Sunday evening meal, found on google as we had just come from an afternoon at the beach. What a great find!!

Lovely restaurant, lots of room. The menu is great lots to choose from, even the kids menu is great, as they get similar to the adults just smaller. Which is great when your 3yr old always wants your meal instead their option of chicken nuggets, beans and chips.

Puddings were great too can recommend the waffle and ice cream it was delicious!

We would definitely eat here again if we were in Weymouth in the future.

Never been here before but totally recommend. We will most definitely go here when we return next month. The burgers were well cooked and extremely tasty and the service was excellent.
