We had dinner here early on a Saturday night and even though it was busy the service was really really good and food came quickly.

Went here for lunch with a friend, was dubious about eating here as had a poor experience with the food before. Ordered cod, fries & mushy peas. The cod was burnt and chewy and I had to leave it & the fries were disgusting. My friend ordered the curry but seemed to enjoy it. Only reason it's not a 2... More

The Old Spa had very good customer service, and food was delivered to the table extremely quickly after ordering on a busy Saturday night. Can't fault that aspect. The food itself however was a different story. Whilst I have definitely had worse, the food was very very average bar food standard. On the plus side, they did have an extensive... More

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

Visited here many times, friendly & cheap. However, ordered the vegan soya burger and have to admit it was the worst veggie burger I have ever tasted. 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
