I visited Stanley's on my last day on holiday in Weymouth to have a cream tea for lunch. The warm scone was delicious - plenty of jam and cream. Also a massive pot of tea for the two of us. We were intending to go somewhere else for our scone but could not get in and found this place -... More

Lovely little tea shop. Friendly staff. Dorset apple cake with clotted cream is delicious. Well worth a visit. We keep returning and it never disappoints.

I visited Stanley's yesterday afternoon and was thoroughly satisfied on all counts. Food was delicious and well-prepared, lovely carrot cake and coffee. Service was prompt and very courteous and I spent a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing time there. Perfect break from an afternoon shopping.

This was my second visit to the cafe and I was pleased to find the same warm welcome, excellent service and yummy food as I enjoyed the first time round! Always enjoy a trip to Weymouth in the summer and a bite to eat in Stanley's made for a lovely pit stop. V relaxing atmosphere, I recommend the cream tea!... More

Had to visit stanleys after reading fabulous reviews on trip advisor. Well worth a visit, lovely sofas, and rustic tables and chairs add to the ambience of the Caffè. If you want a relaxing coffee this is the place to come. Will definitely visit again when in the area

Visited for breakfast after a long journey to Weymouth so we were all looking forward to a hearty breakfast. The waitress was lovely and friendly & the food & drinks arrived quickly. Sadly, breakfast was not what we were hoping for. Raw mushrooms, hard egg and a hair on the side as an added bonus! The ketchup was so watered... More

Thank you for your review. I am very shocked by your comments as I have always endeavoured to present Stanleys to a very high standard, so for you to find a hair is quite inexcusable, had you brought this to my attention I would have immediately given a refund so now all I can do is offer my unreserved apologies....

Service was very good. Food was ok even though my jacket potato was a little burnt on the outside and the cheese on the lasagne wasn't grated properly so made quite a lot stick to the side but credit to our host who was doing everything herself! My chocolate milkshake was a bit bland but my husband absolutely loved his!... More

Thank you for you review. The jacket potatoes are oven baked to give a better texture and flavour and sometimes the skin may catch on the oven tray, but I hope this didn't spoil your visit to Stanleys. More
