Booked online at 6:30pm for 7:30pm table for 7 people. Emailed me promptly to confirm booking and to advise that it would have to be a table inside. Not a problem, very happy with communication. Restaurant was very rustic, intimate and pleasant. Staff greeted us...More

Hello Francis, Thank you for taking the time to review us. We're a little disappointed that you have only given us 3 stars as you seem to have misunderstood the idea of Tapas. There is no starters or mains but lots of small Spanish style...More

Really good food with nice staff and lovely setting. Went twice in three days as we enjoyed it so much. It is only a small place and busy because of the weather so best to book.

Tired after a long drive, needed food and stumbled upon this restaurant. Each dish was delicious and we loved sharing and trying each other’s. My son was delighted by more English puddings and finished by eating a sticky toffee pudding. Very reasonable xx

The Crow’s Nest is a hidden gem in Weymouth’s historical Hope Square. We’ve recently had a refurb and now have a full bar, a beautiful and relaxing sitting out area and live music events during the summer months. We’re also very Dog friendly and situated in a perfect location to sit and have a spot of lunch with your four legged bestie before heading to the Nothe Gardens for a nice long walk.
