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.

    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.

    Our dining experience was very good - breakfast was tasty and we commented on the range and quality of the food, the juicy fruit salad and the free range eggs in particular. In the evening my husband particularly enjoyed the steak (he had it twice) and I liked the sea bass with cauliflower (I also had it twice!) The staff were friendly and the restaurant kept in pristine condition.

    Very good, had portobello mushroom burger, delicious. Took 2 friends who also loved it. Pity about the awful weather. Going again Monday although quite a long drive.

    The food and setting were lovely. The lady that greeted us on arrival was very friendly too. However the service received during our afternoon tea was awful. The waiter asked for our drinks order twice, we had to ask for the drinks twice before they eventually arrived halfway through eating our afternoon tea. We were asked once if we wanted more tea and when we replied no the waiter disappeared before we could even ask for drinks that weren’t tea. The rest of my party were drinking Prosecco and were not offered top ups at all. I am pregnant and asked for a lemonade but my request was ignored and I was told I could only have juice! We were planning on staying for further drinks in the garden but as the service was so slow and rude we took our business elsewhere.
