We are a marina-side restaurant and bar, just a 5-minute walk away from the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy with plenty of outdoor seating and fantastic views across the harbour- perfect for relaxing with a drink whilst keeping an eye on the sailing action. 

 We are open every day, serving a delicious locally-sourced menu with a dedicated vegan selection and GF options. Fresh daily seafood specials and bar snacks are also on offer. 

During the summer months we have an outside bar and pizza oven, regular live music events on the weekends and a separate upstairs Pimms bar and terrace boasting the best views in Portland.  Our function room and terrace are also available for hire for weddings, parties and private functions.  

With a relaxed atmosphere, cool music and a great food menu offering something for every taste, we look forward to welcoming you to our venue on the stunning Jurassic Coastline.
