“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

We popped in for a quick bite to eat last night not expecting too much but we were both glad that we did. The staff were pleasant and helpful our food was freshly cooked and the milkshakes were lovely. Will definately return for another good value for money meal!

“Friendly place and great food”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

My partner and I visit here every so often and always we seem to go for the international grill which is always really good. Staff particularly on today's visit were very welcoming and friendly

“Very good cafe”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

I have not been in a Wimpy for many years and we spotted this one while staying in Swanage.
What an improvement on the old days- still the same simple tables and chairs but everywhere felt so clean. We thought the food was really good for the price we paid. Well cooked and tasty
The staff were also friendly and efficient.
We would definitely use this Wimpy again.

“Return to childhood”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

It has been many many years since I last set foot in a Wimpy. When visiting Swanage for a short break we noticed that there was one in the town. I am pleased to report that things appeared much the same as I remember which is no bad thing. Tasty burgers all round accompanied by table service and friendly staff. Recommended for all those with a thirst for nostalgia.

“No complaints whatsoever”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

I am a wimpy regular, when I can find a restaurant within reach, and we visited Wimpy at Swanage for that reason, staff were friendly efficient and quick, the restaurant was clean, food was up to the usual wimpy standard (which I love) and overall it was a great visit- let's hope wimpy score the swanage restaurant a refresh on the furnishing to bring them up to date with the new branding soon
Had a lovely meal thanks !!
