About

A hidden gem is how Mallams is often described, you can find it on Weymouth's historic harbourside. Set in a beautiful Grade II listed building with Tudor beams and stone walls, the restaurant has recently been restyled with a modern, nautical feel.

Local suppliers provide our Head Chef Joe with the very best produce the West Country has to offer. He has recently joined after travelling extensively, working in Michelin starred and rosette restaurants as well as a stint at The Ivy. His food is delighting our customers and he is bringing a new twist to our menu offering.

Why not try our lunch menu also? Available Friday and Saturday and Bank Holiday Sundays.

Come and try us, our relaxed vibe, informal but professional service and amazing food will guarantee you will have a great time.

An absolutely wonderful evening had by my wife and me. The service and food were both excellent . Great to see an independent family run resturant doing so well .  I would also like to add the exceptional service from the chap front of house, who made 2 stunning cocktails for us . 


Many thanks again

Incredible in everyway - service excellent, food outstanding, drinks amazing! One of the best meals I’ve ever had. Get in quick as I suspect a Michelin star is coming and you’ll struggle to get a booking soon! Thanks to CJ and his wife for a wonderful evening. Oh and also Nala - the cutest dog in the world!

Really great food well presented, we had a table that was rather small, for the prices charged I would expect white table cloth, however this should not detract from the excellent food.

Great food and service! The only problem I have ever had with Mallams is that it is a bit cosy. It is a small restaurant, however it has a reputation for great food, which it does live up to. Well worth the money

Had visitors over for a few days. They expressed desire to celebrate Burns Night. That left me cold (believe it or not Burns was a Bad Man!!!) but they were very longstanding friends so we booked the evening with Mallams. What a triumph from beginning to end. Restaurant has a to-die-for position overlooking the harbour and as for the food..... Venison appeared looking very red and moist which got our (as in 3 out of 4 people) vote but made me nervous on behalf of husband who ideally prefers meat veering to well done but it was so beautifully cooked that we all claimed it was the best every venison we had ever eaten anywhere. Pudding? Who doesn't love marmalade bread & butter pudding in a boozy Drambuie sauce/custard? Staff were VERY knowledgable re win and service top notch.

Very different from our last experience. Service was like trying to get stubborn high school kids to come help you, menus had to be requested and were falling apart.
Ordered the most expensive meals and left hungry.
Decided to do pudding elsewhere due to lack of service and lack of response to our feedback.
Maybe go back when we hear things have improved.
So Disappointed, was suppose to be a special night.
Thanks to the George for being so welcoming, what a hard working bunch of people.

Special event put on by Mallams to highlight Dorset Sea Salt. Interesting short talk, followed by set menu - very enjoyable food, even though would not normally have been first choice from the menu. Salt cod fritter was delicious, as was the belly pork. The dessert was a little too rich and salty for me.

A really nice friendly restaurant - we will definitely be going back. They do great cocktails to kick off. We went for the 3 course set menu as it mostly had what we were going to eat anyway. This meant we got an essentially free desert and opted for the Mallam's Pudding. This was delicious but, be warned, it will probably put you over the driving alcohol limit. A real find!

Lunch was our second visit to Mallams - not disappointed at all. The set lunch menu had everything we needed. Starters of smoked mackerel pate was excellent, as I am advised were the mussels. We both had the same main , the fish of the day. Brill fillet was absolutely 'brill'. Wines were well recommended to go with these courses and dessert wine with the chocolate fondant and strawberries also went together well.
We will return.

A great find whilst on a mini break in the Weymouth area, the food was excellant and beautifully presented. Service was great and bar tenders knowledge of cocktails and drinks was amazing. A cocktail filled with alcohol rather than juice. Highly recommend and to be sure you are not disapointed I would book.

Great location, good atmosphere, fantastic service from friendly staff who did not talk down to us, no pressure to buy anything in particular , everyone was very helpful. The food was wonderful. It is quite expensive but we felt it was worth it. The ingredients all seemed very fresh, the flavours delicate but absorbing, the wine was delicious (we did choose just about the cheapest bottle!). After a wonderful and healthy fish meal we splurged on the Mallams Pudding which is divine. I would definitely go back for a special occasion.
