Restaurant description

Perched on the dramatic Dorset coast, and with a stunning terrace overlooking Chesil Beach, Moonfleet Manor is a charming country house setting for AA Rosette-winning cuisine. British and Mediterranean flavours sit side by side on the menu, with indulgent afternoon teas offered with all the classic trimmings.

Locally sourced delicacies go into the Chesil Beach menu, with an exciting blend of traditional British and tastes from the continent featured throughout. Rabbit terrine is served with apricot and shallot chutney and pistachio crackers, while fresh regional seafood includes Portland crab and scallops from Lyme Bay. Traditional tastes from Italy feature in the pasta range, with indulgent combinations of gorgonzola, chilli and dried ham.

Afternoon tea at Moonfleet Manor in Weymouth features delectable homemade scones, as well as expertly crafted cakes and pastries. Diners can add in a glass of bubbles for an added treat, and there are also fine wines from the bar, as well as local ales for those wanting to sample another taste of the area.

With spectacular local surroundings and filled with historic charm, Moonfleet Manor is just 6 miles from Weymouth.

    Restaurant is rather like a long corridor with little character but with good views to the lagoon. Evening menu. Is quite short with about 6 main courses, started with scallops which were small but well cooked and accompanied with a curried flavoured parsnip purée and a limp parsnip crisp. Main course of hake was very good, but duck was quite tough, and both lacked sufficient vegetables. Sticky toffee pudding was good. Overall felt food and wine were overpriced for what was experienced. Service from the young European staff was friendly and attentive.

    Amazing service and meal, very family orientated without losing the quality of the dining experience.

    Lovely experience. Staff attentive and appropriately respectful. All courses of food were excellent. My husband said the scallops he ate as a starter were probably the best he had tasted.

    We were staying at the hotel and enjoyed a brilliant dinner, great food and wine, whilst taking advantage of the hotel’s baby listening service!

    We were welcomed and promptly escorted to our table which gave us an interesting view of the Fleet Lagoon. We were intrigued by the interesting old house but felt that the Annex in which we were seated was a little cold and uninteresting. The staff were attentive and polite and the food promptly served. The champagne afternoon tea menu was lovely with lots of home-made cakes And delicious sandwiches, the top up of the teapot was especially appreciated. A delightful and quirky hotel. We shall certainly return for any special occasions that we might like to celebrate. The pricing levels were appropriate. The setting for this lovely old building was excellent which made it a romantic place to be. Staff super friendly and efficient. What more can we say ?

    Great evening celebrating a significant birthday. Champagne by the fire in reception before a super meal in the restaurant, topped off with a couple of Espresso Martinis! Lovely historical setting and attentive staff.
