We had dinner here twice during a recent stay in Weymouth-it's an absolutely gorgeous little place. So cosy, delicious food and super friendly staff-it was reasonably priced too. Definitely worth a visit!

The Crows Nest is located in pretty square just off the Weymouth marina. There are plenty of car parks close by. The place was bustling (in stark contrast to its neighbours) so we thought we'd give it a try. The decor is that of a...More
