Weymouth and the Crab House Cafe

This weekend, Andy and I celebrated our 11th Wedding Anniversary!  When I say celebrate, it means we had a slap-up meal at a special location.  This year we went to Weymouth in Dorset.


All of my British readers will be familiar with Weymouth and Chesil Beach.  But you may be thinking that you've seen this place before and have never been to Dorset.  


It looks very familiar.  There's a good reason.  If you watched the 2012 Summer Olympics you will recognise Weymouth and Portland as the venue for the sailing events.


We just had to stop and take a few photos of the bay on the way to our real destination, the Crab House Cafe.


Now this might look like a pretty wacky place, but they are serious about seafood.  


So serious they even have an oyster farm.   


I am not going to try to describe our lunch except to say it was beautifully prepared and the atmosphere was comfortable and quirky.  The staff was brilliant and the customers were friendly and chatty.  It was a lovely lunch.  Click on this Link to learn more about the Crab House Cafe.  I suggest you have a look at the menu section.  They are really serious about fish but everything else is for fun.

    1. It certainly has a lot of character! I don't do oysters either. I don't eat anything that looks like a bug or has to be pulled out of it's home but the fish was lovely!

    1. Thank you! If you like seafood, you must give the Crab House Cafe a try. They had fish I'd never heard of on the menu, and crab, of course. : )
