    Rendezvous: Something for everyone

    by KaikoM Written Jun 23, 2014
    3 more images

    Rendezvous is in a prime spot on Weymouth harbour making it easy to find. It satisfies a lot of different tastes for a night out with DJ's and a nightclub feel upstairs and live music in a local pub feel on the lower ground floor. They have live music 3 times a week and also the locals favourites of karaoke and also a pub quiz. There are always some kind of drink promotions on so always ask what offers there are when ordering. Food is served all day, every day and they run 2 meals for £8 and BOGOF on desserts making it great value for money. With the view they have too it's a good choice for a meal, drink, dance or a sing-a-long.

    Dress Code: Smart/casual

    The pub

    Day or night it is so friendly. A fisherman's retreat with all the fishing paraphernalia hanging around blended with original soul music posters from the 60's.
    They have karaoke on Friday nights, Live bands Saturdays and a mix of entertaining amateurs on Sundays.
    A few weeks ago we went on an afternoon and saw them giving out medals for the largest catch of conger eels!!
    A small pub not for kids really but very hospitable to everyone.
    Open late on music nights.

    Dress Code: Tshirts to waders!!

    Excise House: Excise Your Right

    A drunk Jeannie in the Excise House

    See what I did with the title there? Aren't I good. :) No, well okay then.

    Anyhoo, the Excise house is a pub cum restaurant situated in the popular Hope Square. It is a large establishment and adjoined with Brewers Quay. The Excise hosts regular live music shows, and serves a high standard menu, as well as a good ol' pint.

    If you have children with you, then there is a designated family area, which also hosts a pool table, bowlingo alleys, and a host of arcade machines.

    Weymouth: A New Year In Weymouth

    by Meadows11 Written Mar 23, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Me as Gene Simmonds (Kiss) at New Year

    I've personally always found New Year's Eve to always be a huge anti-climax. But as far as venues and atmosphere go, Weymouth is at the top of the list! The whole town really gets in to the swing of things, and all the pubs and clubs extend their license espescially.

    There are a choice and fun and vibrant places to see in midnight. The nightclubs always make a big deal of it, but the two most popular jaunts are the jubilee clock and Hope Square. At the clock, a group of hundreds will watch in the chimes on the clock, and a communia Aul Lang Syne will ensue. However, the best atmosphere is no doubt found at Hope Square, where live bands, beer tents and food stalls, along with the thousands of happy faces, make this the place to be.

    Dress Code: In Weymouth, EVERYONE dresses up for New Years Eve! Some put in some real effort too, and it is fantastic to see the array of different groups and costumes. Believe me, you'll look more silly and out of place if you don't dress up.

    The Swan: Classic Cheap Witherspoon's!

    by Meadows11 Updated Mar 23, 2005

    Colesy & Ant in The Swan

    What a brilliant pub. Most people of similar age to myself find this place a little boring, but it is exactly what I look for in a pub. One of the few places to not play live music, you can actually hear each other speak in here. The drinks like with most of the JD Witherspoon chain are second to none in quality, choice and espescially price! Plus the food is great value. A beer and a burger for £3.29!! Thursday night- curry and a beer £4.99. This place rules! Added to which this pub is CONSTANTLY busy, they must make a packet in here.

    The Blue Room: Bad Idea

    by Meadows11 Written Mar 14, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Whoever had the idea to covert this small shop sized plot in to a pub/club should give themselves a big slap. What an impractical idea! This place is so small that it was never going to turn a profit, hence the venue having three different owners in the past 18 months. I believe it is currently up for sale again. If yuo can cram your way in then you'll be pleased to see the generous prices, but with so many more accomodating pubs and clubs in such close proximity then unless this place is deserted then there really is no point!

    Kings Arms: Introducing The Newly Rennovated.........

    by Meadows11 Written Mar 14, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The newly rennovated Kings Arms is a tidy littl pub in a prime location if you are making the trip in to town from Hope Square. Drink and food prices are fair, and the layout is now much more sensible as you can get around easily without having to make umpteen detours through different doors and corridors. There all your essential pub ameneties like your fruities and pool tables, and you will always be made to feel welcome. I wouldn't go out of your way to visit this pub, but it's worth a look if you are passing.

    Sailors Return: You'll Definately Return To The Sailors!

    by Meadows11 Written Mar 14, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What an awesome harbourside pub this little beauty is. It's easy to miss it, and I only discovered it Christmas Eve 2004,but have sinced returned many times and have been made to feel very welcome. The staff are some of nicest, friendliest people you could wish to meet, and most of the regulars/locals are welcoming too!

    The layout is really cool, it seems to be split in to three distinct areas. As you enter the main doors you can head either right or left. To the left is the larger, restaurant and live music are. If you head up this way and then turn at the end of the bar, you'll find a relaxing sofa area, with quiz machine and the like. If at the door you'd taken a right, you enter the main bar area, where there is a pool table, fruit machine and THE BEST JUKEBOX ever! This contraption is amazing, you can choose ANY song you like, and it will come up with some of the obscurest artists you could dream up. A great feauture for someone like me- a music fanatic who's tastes are somewhat different to the majority.

    This pub comes highly recomended

    The Kiva: Avoid The Drugs Cauldron (Allegedly :p)

    by Meadows11 Written Mar 14, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I suppose I'd better not go in to my title to much as it may be libellous, but to say that the current clientel aren't the friendliest bunch...... nuff said?

    It is such a shame that this place has gone so down hill. There was a time when I went here ALL the time, and it was my first favourite club. Ironic that I now avoid it like the plague! Before the new management came in, you could rely on the Kiva to play excellent music, sell cheap drinks, and be a generally friendly and fun place to go. They used to attract some incredible bands considering. I've seen Spunge (the popular ska-punk band) perform there countless times, Bowling For Soup and Ska classics like Bad Manners and The Selecter. Gone are those days now though, and you can consider a good night in there if you leave with your face still in tact. A farce, what has become of this place, absolute farce. In fact, I hear that they have actuallly now sold part of the building to Dominos Pizza because they aren't making enough money!

    Mariners/Verdis: Verdis- More Facelifts than Joan Collins

    by Meadows11 Written Mar 14, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mariners/Verdis was, and arguably still is the leading alternative music venue in the town. However, that being said, you're never quite sure what to expect, as every now and again with dwindling numbers, a new gimmick is tried. In it's prime there is no better place, but certainly in my experience this club is well past it's prime. Not necessarilly the pubs fault, but it has always been a difficult and inconsistent audience to cater for.

    The pub/club is exactly that, a pub adjoined to a club. Mariners is the pub, and stays open throughout the week, with pool table, comfy sofas with projector screen, darts, and sometimes even a table tennis facility! Next door, though accessible through the pub, is the Verdis nightclub. Having not been there for a few months I can't vouch for it's current layout/appearance, but it's a pretty safe bet that it has changed since I was last there. It seems have endured more facelifts than Joan Collins. In fairness, it has enjoyed some great nights and even attracted some top bands like Ash and Spunge in the past.

    Toad: Dive Like A Toad

    by Meadows11 Updated Mar 14, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Toad, similar to Yates' is a pub-cum-club. It is also part of a larger chain of pubs that operate throughout the UK. The Toad serves food and functions much the same as your bog standard pub during the day, and then converts itself in to a wannabe night club by night. I will try and give an biased opinion on Toad by night, but for the record I hate the place!

    The prices here are from generous, in fact unless you catch a promo night, Toad probably has the most expensive drink prices in town! The clientel is very chavesque (see culture tips if you do not understand this terminology) and the design of the interior was obviously not very well thought out. There are pillars, poles and walls dotted out all over the place, and you always seem to be moving out of the way for someone. You can hardly hear each other speak, and I don't think I've ever heard them play a good song in there. There, that was pretty unbiased wasn't it?

    A day to note is Tuesday. If you are anything like me, then you will want to do everything you can to avoid it, but there are hundreds in there each week who have a differing opinion. Tuesday night is ladies night and is exploitation at it's best. All females pay an entry fee of about a fiver I seem to remember and for that they get free drinks all night. Sexist, yes, but it doesn't drive the men away, in fact every pervert and desperate chav comes flocking in to see the inevitably high amount of girls, probably drunk and easier than usual. Not my scene, sickening place. Hate it.

    Dress Code: Casual.

    Yates: Pub Grub

    by Meadows11 Written Mar 12, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    jutt + me being weird in yates'

    Yates' of course is a chain of pub/clubs around Britain, the only difference that you might find with this one is that it is perhaps a little more night club orientated than some of the others. It gets busy in the early mid evening time, but most tend to clear out between 12.20 and 1 to get in to one of the bigger night clubs (usually Rendezvous) before last entry.

    Yates' serves decent food at generous prices during the day, and has drink promotions on the less popular nights. A bit too 'yuppy' and 'trendy' for my liking, people appear to take themselves too seriously in here.

    Goldfingers: Sleazy Strip Joint Not Advised

    by Meadows11 Written Feb 24, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rear Entry (ooerr missus!) :p

    Oh James Bond would be so proud! Aptly named Goldfingers because of it's location on Bond Street (geddit??) this is Weymouth's first strip club.
    I have been to this place twice, once around the time when it opened, and another time for a stag doo. It does manage to rival Harrys for sleaziness, but due to the almost comedy nature of the place it amazingly loses out! Yes Harrys is sleazier than a strip joint. The girls are mostly local and considering I don't want to be offensive about their appearance, I'll leave it at that. :)

    Harrys: Do Not Go To Dirty Harrys

    by Meadows11 Written Feb 24, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    colesy, si + me unfortunate enough to be in harrys

    Do not go here. It is an unsolved mystery why tourists always seem to come here! Dude- it is such a dive! This is where you'll find the sleaziest people in the town, the biggest slappers, and generally the most horrible place in town. Add to that it always smells of bad feet!?!

    I've been dragged to this place a few times, and each time reminds me why it has been so long since the last time.

    Dress Code: Smart Casual, knives welcome!! (sarcasm, I don't wanna be responsible for someone actually taking a knife in with them.
