The Atlantic is away from the hustle of the seafront. It is 400 yards down Meadow Street from the Silica (locally known as 'the carrot'). I am a pensioner and it has been there longer than I have been alive! I love the place and I tell everyone I know just how good the fish and chips are. Generous portions and better value than the others in Weston. Has lots of other value food on the menu also.
Favorite Dish: Fish and chips. Large portions, beautifully white fish and delicious batter.
The greatest joy to pass my lips
every day is fish and chips
batter crisp,chips nice and brown
i have tried them all in town
I'm sure Im right when i declare
That my favourie shop in Weston super mare
And i'm not being in the least pedantic
When i say in meadow Street is 'The Atlantic'
Druckers is a coffee shop in the towns shopping centre. It is open plan with a raised section near to the window. There is a small smokers section on the raised section.
The food counter is packed full of mouth watering ckes, pastries, croissants and sandwiches. They were all so tempting but I managed to resist them, mainly because of the cost but they did look delicious.
We had large cappucinno and Lattes but they didn`t look that large to me, they cost £1.80 each.
Favorite Dish: Cappucinno. this is my favourite item on the menu, mainly because its the only thing that I have ever had from there.
Just the same as any other fast food restaurant, there is a very tiny smoking area down stairs and a larger area upstairs along with the toilets.
Favorite Dish: I had a XL Bacon Double Cheeseburger Meal with Diet Coke.
Excellent freshly cooked fish and chips, all prepared to order. You can eat-in, in the small cosy restaurant, or take away. Really friendly and polite staff. But beware there is very rarely a time when there is no queue! But it does move quickly and it's well worth it.
When we used to visit Weston every week we used to go to an Italian Restaurant, down a side street just off the sea front, for our tea.
They made great pizzas and every week we were welcomed as family. Some years passed before we went again as we had stopped going to Weston, but we were still remembered.
I went to Weston last year (2003) with Claire and for memories sake we went to the same restaurant.
The decor had changed a bit and the staff may have changed but it felt like I had never been away and the memories came flooding back.
The food was delicious and the service was excellent. It was that good that there is talk of making a special journey there just to take the families for a meal there.
After some good honest advice on our menu selections from our waitress we were brought little crackers with smoked salmon and cream cheese while we waited, then warm ciabatta bread with butter. our starters were superb, fresh and delicious, the mains were perfectly cooked and served with a variety of vegetable dishs. not just plain veg, but things like green beans with chilli and mint or honey and orange roasted vegetables. I think that little extra thought goes a long way. Not suprisingly their homemade desserts were exquisite. i was left with not a single complaint-except maybe that my trousers were getting a bit tight as my belly tried to escape!!
Our bill came to around ?70 for 3 or us. that included, 2 starters, 3 main courses, 2 puddings, a bottle of wine, 2 liquers and 1 coffee. really good value for money.
Favorite Dish: I couldnt possibly choose a favourite, it was all superb.
i had grilled goats cheese on toasted ciabatta bread with fresh dressed salad, then perfectly poached salmon with a cream and prawn sauce and all those lovely vegetables. and i finished off with a chocolate orange cup, rich chocolatey mousse. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!
