It's possible to get a very good breakfast here. Sensible prices too. They also make your doggy friend welcome too.

The food was lovely, well cooked and the portions were very generous! They had a varied menu, something for everyone! The prices were about average - we ordered 1 bacon Sandwich, 1 Sausage and Bacon Roll, 2 lattes, 1 Milkshake and scrambled egg with beans and bacon and it came to £20. So it wasn't expensive at all. The staff were lovely and the place was clean and tidy. Would definitely visit again if we were in the area!

Would have got 5 stars but don't do Bovril. Made to feel most welcome as an away supporter.

Easy parking next to the ground. Good food. Big stand with no posts in the way so good view of the game. Team poor though!

History (from Wikipedia)

The Bob Lucas Stadium (formerly named the Wessex Stadium) is a football stadium in WeymouthEngland. It has been the home ground of Weymouth F.C. since 1987. It was formerly a greyhound racing and speedway stadium.

Football[edit]

The ground, which was built to hold 10,000 with 900 seated in the stand, first saw a football kicked with the visit of Taunton Town in the Western Counties Floodlight Cup final on 18 August 1987 in front of 1,023 spectators. The league season opened on 26 August with a visit from Lincoln City – who had just suffered relegation from the Football League – and the official attendance was 3,500.

Ron Greenwood performed the official opening of the ground on 21 October 1987, prior to an exhibition match against Manchester United - which the Terras won 1–0. The attendance for this fixture was given as 4,904.

In July 2010, the name of the stadium was changed from the Wessex Stadium in homage to the long-serving club president Bob Lucas, during his fight against cancer.
[1] He died a month later, aged 85.[2]
