Description: 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.

I’ve read the other reviews and most seem positive, we didn’t have that good an experience though , visited lunch time on a Sunday and sat at a window seat . Table cloth had crumbs and butter remains on which we brushed away . A panini we ordered had a visible black hair in it , to be fair to staff they replaced it with a freshly done one but that to had a small hair on the plate , altoygh we didn’t say anything about that till the end , maybe wear a hair net when preparing food ?

Hi Amanda,
We're very sorry you had a poor experience with us.
There is no excuse for hairs in food and as you can see from most of our other reviews, this really is not the norm for us.

We hope this one experience does not put you off coming again to enjoy our our hair free dishes.

We had a belated birthday meal for four of us on 19/1/18. The service was friendly, efficient and professional as always. The young lady (sorry didn't get her name) who served us was bright, conversational and very professional. The food was to die for and was cooked to perfection. One of us is vegetarian and the staff, chef included, could not have been more helpful in the options they were prepared to offer over and above the menu. The wine choice is excellent, a bottle of Bride Valley fizz followed by a rather wonderful Rioja. Our table was at 7.30 and we left around midnight. At n point were we rushed or under pressure to leave. Chef came and talked to ALL the diners and was friendly, knowledgeable and a joy to talk to. Overall outstanding and we will be back very soon

Good afternoon Russ,
thank you for the outstanding review but I think you have the wrong place.
We like to think our service is every bit as good as mentioned above but we don't open evenings in the winter months.

Our evening's will be starting again from Easter once we've had a out little refurb so please be sure to join us.

Dropped into the Crows Nest after a walk around the harbour. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The menu had a good lunch selection.
We didn't have to wait long for our food which was really good. Overall a really nice experience and we will definitely be going back there soon.

Popped in here off the street 7th November. I had a very good GF breakast - GF fried bread, tomatoes, mushrooms and poached eggs. My wife had the light breakfast. Good coffee. Less than £20. Very pleased indeed. Good service and very friendly staff.

A great venue for breakfast; the choices are wide, the service was fast but friendly and they will even let you order to take away. Great find in a charming location.
