Many of us have fond memories of a lovely meal in Weymouth enjoyed in good company.

Here's a short list of some of the favourites that we have said goodbye to.

Some of them have changed hands having closed in more recent years and another is a distant memory from 75-odd years ago!

See how many you remember.

1.) Rossini's restaurant, Maiden Street, Weymouth

Dorset Echo:

Not to be confused with the still-open legendary Rossi's ice cream parlour, Rossini's was a favourite Mediterranean-style restaurant for many Weymouth residents and holidaymakers.

It served Italian and Spanish cuisines, but also a range of European dishes and a selection of fine wines from around the world.

It became Restaurant 43.

2.) Floods restaurant, Custom House Quay, Weymouth

Dorset Echo:

This restaurant, known for its locally caught seafood and fine wines, closed in August 2014.

It was known for its dishes like prawn, lobster and crab gratin with chilli and pan fried scallops with a drizzle of garlic and chilli butter. It also served baked cod with a chorizo and red wine ragout. Another favourite choice of seafood lovers was 'Shelly' - the fruits de mer mountain!

Also popular was the Dorset Apple Cake it served.

3.) Vaughan's restaurant, Custom House Quay, Weymouth

Dorset Echo:

This popular eatery closed in 2016 and changed hands, then becoming Quayside Bar and Kitchen.

4.) Clinton restaurant, St Mary Street, Weymouth

Dorset Echo:

The oldest of our restaurants listed here, this much loved venue was in St Mary Street.

5.) Sense restaurant and wine bar, St Mary Street, Weymouth

Dorset Echo:

This eatery opened in 2011. Moving from one side of the street to the other to take up a large premises seating 118 diners, Sense was popular for its a la carte selection and its lunchtime light bites.
