Went to Oily Rag Breakfast Club event. Huge turnout of interesting vehicles and spectators. This meant that the Cafe, which has a good reputation, was heavily patronised. By 09.30 there was a 40 minute delay in service. Clearly they provide good breakfasts!

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.
A lovely friendly place ,just outside the main Town centre, but easily reached by car. nearly forgot the cafe,good food.

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]
