The fish was not too tasty and the price does not justify it. I have not tried the crab although it looked quite fun. Nice atmosphere, you can hear people hammering along at their crabs and staff is pretty nice.

It has become a regular place for us to eat when we are in Weymouth. The choice of seafood is excellent, we had the cracked crab again and it did not disappoint. For dessert I had creme brulee which again was excellent. If you like seafood this is the place to go.

I have a child and we wanted somewhere that does really great food but that is also forgiving of children. This hit the nail on the head. Pink fringed patio umbrellas, lots of outside space, seafood in all it's fine forms, fish and chips for little people and no-one to tut over the odd loud moment. It's not cheap but... More

This is my favourite restaurant. Lovely outside seating area. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food is just amazingly fresh, well cooked and tastes out of this world.

We booked for an early supper with our four kids. We all enjoyed the squid and fish cake starters and the children gobbled through their fish and chips whilst we had the plaice and mackerel. The chocolate brownie knickerbocker glory was a real hit. Last visited ten years ago and happy to return.

Superb food, menu changes twice a day and depend on what they get in. So always fresh. Has the squid and Crab. Great food and great fun with a hammer. One friend had the Chinese crab,the Chinese sauce was not great. It was too overpowering and luckily the crab wasn't coated in it. Brilliant otherwise.

Thank CobNut_GD
