John McInally, Head Chef of Shelley’s at The Dining Room comments: “We are really excited to be part of FEAST Weymouth this year. Weymouth really needs this sort of event in October and November and we can’t wait to get cracking! We think we have a great menu and can’t wait to share it with you all.”
New for 2016 is the opening event on Saturday 1st October – the pop up kitchen. The pop up will be located in the town centre and will be adorned with local chefs demonstrating new dishes and giving the locals a chance to sample specific dishes from their restaurant. An incredible cooking class competition from Les Enfants Terrible is also up for grabs! More details coming soon.

We are thrilled to have this opportunity to let everyone know about our new delicious menu, cosy surroundings and great bar. We hope to see you many of you over the 8 weeks, we are sure you will love our menu”.
