“Visited in October 2021. Small local produce shop located near the bottom end of the main shopping street. Unsurprisingly for a shop located in a seaside tourist town, it very much focuses on local produce that can be gifted or taken back home. So you won't find much fresh produce here (although there is a very small cheese fridge) - instead there's lots of confectionery, preserves, biscuits and of course alcohol. I'd guess there are about 80 different Dorset beers and ciders here, from the likes of Gyle 59, Hattie Browns, Cerne Abbas, Piddle, Dorset Nectar and Dorset Sunshine. It's a busy little place, with a constant stream of shoppers in here buying holiday gifts, but the lady serving was very friendly and took time to chat to everyone, despite being behind a large Covid screen. I liked this place and would recommend a visit if you're in Weymouth; and apparently they have a second shop in the nearby village of Preston with a larger beer range which would be worth checking out too.“

“Reviewed during lockdown release phase 2, indoors allowed, social distancing. This is a big basic Wetherspoons at the top end of town close to the esplanade. Family central, the place to avoid the rain if on the beach. Nothing of note on the beer front on my visit, just the normal nationals.“

“Reviewed during lockdown release phase 2, indoors allowed, social distancing. This is a reasonably sized back street bar but just off the town centre and esplanade. The beers are pretty basic with 3 easily available nationals on offer, 2 from Greene King. This is more about the cider. There is no cidery on show, I believe they must be rebadged from another cider maker. It's a proper, lively boozer though.“

“Reviewed during lockdown release phase 2, indoors allowed, social distancing. Just a short walk from the harbour area, this is a friendly, lively community corner pub. It has a cosy, lived in feel to it where everyone is welcome. Yes the beers are all from the Marston's stable, which is a tad disappointing, but they do try to get in beers from each of the breweries.“

“Reviewed during Lockdown release phase 2, inside allowed, social distancing. Situated just a little further up High West Street and opposite the Boot this is a large, knocked through single roomed pub with a central bar. There are 4 hand pulls but just with beers on that are readily available in the South West, nothing exciting on the beer or cider front. The atmosphere had a bit of an edge to it imo. Trying to be a food lead pub.“

“Reviewed during the never ending lockdown release stage 2, indoors allowed, social distancing. Quite quiet but it was a Monday lunchtime, this is in a bit of a back street but quite close to the esplanade, so easy to nip in to when the family are on the beach. Dog friendly pub that reaches back quite a way, with the bar at the back of the pub. It had a shortened list, Monday and Covid, gravity pours on the RA's, many ciders available. Probably the best pub in Weymouth for beer hunters now.“

58 /100 CUSTOM HOUSE QUAY,
“Visited on Monday for lunch, 26/10/15. Located on Custom House Quay the Ship Inn is a popular bar, largely due to it’s central location in the touristy part of Weymouth. Tied to Hall & Woodhouse (Badger) the cask range comes from said brewery including a seasonal that I added to RB IIRC. Condition of beer was just fine, just typical bitter/ESB type stuff on offer. The place was booming, it was half term week, and we were lucky to get a table. The bonus for us was, unlike other pubs in the area, the Ship is dog friendly so Flo Doge was most welcome inside with us. Food and service perfectly acceptable. Not a venue that you should make to much of an effort to visit but useful for dogs and likely you will walk past here anyway on a visit to Weymouth and therefore may drop on a seasonal scoop.“

“Friendly boozer just off the Quay area, a pub for locals and banter. Single roomed with a short bar. Packed with photo’s of the harbour in the past. Well kept beers. Worth a visit.“

Royal Oak (Bar)
CUSTOM HOUSE QUAY
“Friendly, atmospheric pub right on the Quay side. Wooden interior that has the feel of an inner deck of an ocean going clipper. The outside area is much sought after. Local CAMRA pub of the year for 2015. Look out for the 20% discount offer for members.“

“Large Wetherspoons on the Harbour end of town. This one is Adults only as opposed to the other Wetherspoons in townthat encourages children. Big open space, thankfully efficient bar service. You know what to expect.“

“Handy shop in the central shopping area, on the way up to the Railway Station. There is a shelving unit full of local beers, well priced, plenty of room for mulling over the beers but no internet connection on the phone to check Ratebeer for doubles. Well worth a visit.“

“Weymouth´s oldest pub with the full Ringwood beer range, guest beers and ciders. A traditional place to meet locals and have lively conversations (5.6.2006).“

“As Chris says a back street local feel. No guests when I visited just Hop Back beers in good condition. Friendly enough place with the landlord seeming to be a 50s rock&roll enthusiast as reflected in the Elvis style quiff and music.“

“Despite the fact that this is quite close to the town centre it has a bit of a back street local feel. Quite light but not what you’d call an atmospheric pub. Mainly local clientele but friendly enough. Convenient for bus and train stations. The main draw is that its owned by Hop Back, so there’s a full range of their beers available together with (supposedly - there wasn’t one when we visited) a guest beer and Westons draught cider, plus the usual macro lagers. This means that, with a Ringwood pub (The Boot qv), Dorset Brewing Company and this, you can get a fair proportion of the beers from Wessex micros in a day in Weymouth. Looks like they have live music as there is a stage at one end of the L-shaped pub, but I’ve no idea what kind of music it is. Also a skittle alley which doubles as a function room. No longer in the Good Beer Guide, which suggests problems with beer quality or a change of landlord. However, beer quality was fine on my visit. A decent basic boozer with a fair range of ales. Useful if in the area.“

“Easily the cosiest and most atmospheric pub in town, even if it is surrounded by some less than sympathetic redevelopment compared to pubs on the nearby harbourside or Brewers Quay area. Very mixed clientele with a slightly alternative feel. A smattering of salty seadogs. Bustling to the point of overcrowding. The "patio" is, in reality, a couple of benches on the pavement, so hardly sufficient to cope with the overspill. Owned by Ringwood Brewery, serving four Ringwood beers, a guest ale and a couple of ciders (Cheddar valley and Stowford Press) as well as standard keg lagers. No food. We would have spent more time here in our couple of days in Weymouth, had it not been so crowded every time we looked in. To be fair, it was Bank Holiday weekend, although the crowd was more local than tourist.“

Red Lion (Bar)
RED LION, HOPE SQUARE
“A single bar, red brick Victorian building right opposite the old Devenish Brewery in the heart of the rejuvenated historic Brewers Quay area of old Weymouth. Now serves as an unofficial tap for the Dorset Brewery Company, which is located in the old Devenish building (although only using a small part of it). Although you will find the Dorset Brewery beers scattered throughout the local pubs, you’ll probably find more on at the same time (four on my visit) here than elsewhere. Which is the main reason for visiting. Also serves a Courage beer or two, plus the usual keg lagers and macro bottles, if you are interested in that kind of thing. A lively, bustling place with lots of nautical knick knacks and friendly, efficient service. Didn’t eat, but the pub grub was ridiculously cheap - two meals for £6.49. Lots of overspill seating on the Square outside, which is a pleasant place to sit and watch the world go by on a sunny day.“
