Rendezvous in Weymouth up for national award - again!

The venue has made it through to the final of the Great British Pub Awards in the category 'Best For Entertainment'.

The landmark pub on Weymouth's quayside won the accolade in 2017 and was also a finalist in 2018, and manager Keith Treggiden and the team have everything crossed for another win this year.

With three floors offering a diverse range of entertainment across The Anchor (ground floor), main bar, Rendezvous, and Dao, the top floor bar, as well as The Royal Oak next door, the venue offers sport, live music, quizzes, karaoke and much more.

The five annual Quayside festivals also continue to go from strength to strength. Running over nine days, Rendezvous now has over 4,000 visitors each festival weekend, increasing tourism in the area.

Keith and the team are constantly on the look-out for new talent to perform, both in the pub and at the festivals; many musicians have flourished after a performance at Rendezvous including The Voice's Lauren Bannon whose first pub performance was at Rendezvous, a home she has returned to since her success on the hit TV show last year.

Keith said:

"Since we started our quayside festivals twelve years ago, we have grown to almost maximum capacity. We never stop seeking out new talent and we've built a reputation over the years that has meant we're an aspiration for emerging acts.

"The festivals offer so much more than just music, it's an experience, capturing the essence of British music, with beer and cider, gins and great street food."

"It's thanks to the dedication of the entire team and the loyalty of the town that we have done so well. We'll keep on rolling out new ideas to stay on top of our game."

Rendezvous is one of just six finalists in the Great British Pub Awards 2019's 'Best for Entertainment' category.

The winner will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London on September 5.
