Here are a few of our favourite places to eat - and drink - in the area:
Just a mile from Corner Cottage you will find the wonderful Smugglers’ Inn. Nestled down below the surrounding cottages and houses in its own little valley, it is in a wonderful, dogfriendly spot with a stream running down to the sea. This lovely old pub with parts said to date from the 13th century was once the home of the leader of the most notorious gang of smugglers in the area during the 18th and 19th centuries, Emmanuel Charles.
Another favourite is The Springhead which is located between our two cottages in the delightful village of Sutton Poyntz. They do a great carvery on a Sunday, they’re dogfriendly and if you get a sunny day, it’s worth sitting outside – primarily because of the stunning views with Osmington’s White Horse off in the distance to the right, but also because if, like us, you have a child/ children, the large play area makes for a far more tranquil drink or meal ;-)
Back in Weymouth itself, our absolute favourite for a very laid back, but also very cool (if women of a certain age can still use that word without sounding ridiculous!) atmosphere with great food, is The Stable. Specialising in pizza, pie and cider (but with all sorts of other edible and drinkable delights too) and located in the harbour, this one is really worth a visit. And as if all that wasn’t enough gushing about The Stable, it’s dogfriendly too!!
Lastly, for a bit of a treat, consider Al Molo. Part of the old pier, with art deco features and overlooking Weymouth Beach and the Esplanade, this restaurant enjoys an elevated position to take full advantage of its fabulous location. The food is excellent – definitely more of a fine dining than a dogfriendly experience – but if you get the chance, it’s such a great spot and while there are undoubtedly less pricey options, it’s well worth it for a bit of a treat.
(That's Al Molo sticking out into the sea and Mayfield is just a couple of minutes' walk behind the spire you can see the pic.)
