Used to walk past this pub when in Weymouth as it looked a bit localish. It is in a way but there's nothing intimidating and the welcome from the Landlady on a horrible wet day was very bright. Only seem to do Ringwood ales but were well kept. Recomend

In the heart of Weymouth town but relatively hidden in a side street a couple/few blocks back from the sea front.
A nice "traditional" pub.
Got a good welcome (Sat 13 Aug 2011) and had a really great pint of Ringwood 49'er.
Maybe it was because I had just walked the costal path from Osmington Mills... Or maybe it was because of the perfect first pint... But I just had to have another. I did!!

Good pub, if a little quiet. Landlord very welcoming and beer kept well.

Decent enough central Weymouth pub. Friendly welcome (and goodbye), and decent beer. Slightly dead for a Saturday night, and the prospect of live music didn't appear to be drawing people in, probably reflecting it's back-alley location.

Clean pub. A good resource in the centre of the town.

Friendly family run pub (Husband, wife, 3 daughters and 1 daughter's partner on the "staff"). There's only 1 member of staff who's not "family". even the granddaughters & grandsons (eldest about 10) seem to be being groomed as staff. Currently serving Ringwood's Best and 49er which is always in tip top condition. Due to Marston's delivery policy they only get one delivery a week on a Monday so during busy periods they may run out late in the weekend, the new delivery not being ready till Tuesday at the earliest. Food is good and plentiful. If you're not worried about your waistline and cholesteral try a Wellie Brunch. Probably the best pub on the Melcome Regis side of the harbour and vies with the Boot as best pub in the whole of Weymouth. Pity the grockles have found it.

A back street terraced pub, with red and white exterior, with some green ceramic tiles - very traditional.

The interior had an open plan main room (there was a dining room off the corridor leading to the bogs, i think it was for families, but nobody was in and our family ate in the main room). The pub is small and there are a few tables in what was the dart area (the board is still there). Decor was cream and wood panel and there were lots of old photos, water colours, model ships, and other curios, like a sewing machine, dotted about. The only modern touch was a few twigs with lights on. The food was fine, the service functional, and the clientele few. Background music was of a decent level.

Beer; its a Marston's pub, so Banks's Bitter, Ringwood Bitter and Ringwood 49 on handpull. The Ringwoods were fine.

Yes, i would happily go back to this pub. Enjoyed it.

This pub seems very clean now, it has some of thethings that make the Boot so good, it is genuinely an old fashioned pub, it does very good Ringwood beers, the service is good, it simply lacks the atmosphere that the Boot has in such abundance.friends recently visited this place gave this a rave review, I can see why but I do not connect with it - it is probably because it is over shadowed by the Boot.

Nice centrally based side street pub with three hand pumps in operation at the time of visit.
Good pint of Forty Niner.
Food good value.
Not so sure about the Friday night entertainment (Mr Tamborine Man) !!
But others seemed to enjoy it.

Proper little pub this. Stumbled across it on holiday. It has some decent real ales on which is a definite bonus. Marstons old empire was excellent and not something you often find at a pub.

Decent enough little back-street boozer. Beers kept well (I only had time for a pint of Ringwood's FortyNiner - which was spot-on). We didn't eat but the food looked really good with generous helpings and seemed good value, although the menu is just typical pub grub.

Quaint little pub. Had been an Eldridge Pope house but the EP chain has been snapped up by Marstons. Therefore, whereas in the past the pub usually had a Studland Bay beer on the go, all the ales now come from the Marston's stable. Had a reasonable pint of Jennings but would have preferred a Dorset beer rather than something that's come in from the other end of the country.

Poor poor poor ! I prefer a CLEAN pub !

Went in there a little while back, early on a Saturday evening, principally for something to eat. Good ale selection in reasonable condition. The food was superb (I had the steak and ale pie). The quality was excellent - and as for the quantity! Being a greedy bugger, I ate - and enjoyed - the whole lot, but I could then only manage a couple more pints for the whole evening!

Cosy little pub near the high street with good atmosphere and beer.

After a long couple of days walking along the South West Coastal Path I stopped off here for a Sunday Roast and I pint of Guiness. It had a warm atmosphere and was a cosy break from the busy high street, lovely food too.
