What a match I watched Weymouth football club play and it was a great place to take my boy to his first ever match. Staff was kind and helpful drinks in the bar was a great price and tickets to watch them play was fair and reasonable, I would recommend going here to watch the lads play great evening out if your a football fan.
Lovely ground with accommodating hospitality. Several options for food and drink available with reasonable pricing throughout. Old school vibe and feel with an impressive main stand. Lots of parking available and great atmosphere on the terraces.

I went to the cafe they have here. I was given some metal cutlery with a wet napkin wrapped around them. It began to tear as I unwrapped it, so I went to the counter. The nice young person was busy serving another customer, so rather than interrupt her I reached over and picked up a wooden set which also had a napkin wrapped around it from an open container full of them. As I was pulling my arm back the boss who was stood nearby flapped his hands about and muttered something, as he indicated he wanted them back. OK, so I said to the young person who was now free, I just want a dry napkin. The boss again muttered something to her as he pointed to a pile of them out of sight from the customer side. I tried to smile at him and continue to be polite as I had been throughout. He seemed rather annoyed nonetheless. Was it desperation to hold onto a wooden knife and fork, or was it that I didn't ask first, having failed to appreciate why I didn't, which led him to be so unfriendly?

Nice little ground with a small partacabin selling beer.Decent burger bar which also sold hot pork and stuffing rolls. Away end undercover which is also OK when it's raining...Smallish car park and situated just outside main town.. so getting there is slightly difficult

14/3/20 Weymouth 2-0 Slough Town in the Vanarama National League South. First ever visit. Adult entry £14, Juniors £3, Car Park £2, Programme £2, Teamsheet 30p. A truly magnificent stadium with some of the finest old school floodlights I’ve ever seen. The grandstand is brilliant affording a superb view of the pitch. It’s remarkably similar to the stand at Basingstoke’s Camrose Stadium. The ground itself has wraparound terracing, some parts covered, some parts not. The uncovered areas were mainly in the corners. The steps of the terracing are a good height so you get a decent view of the pitch wherever you stand. The stewards, volunteers, and fans that I spoke to were superb. All very friendly and welcoming and a credit to the club. I look forward to when I get to visit again, and if you haven’t been make sure you do.

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]
