Went for Sunday lunch, 6 in the party. Food choice relatively limited and not many fish dishes. Food very good and service very pleasant but speed of service was atrocious with individual meals being served in 2's or singularly. This is second time we have been for lunch and both times speed of service has been very poor. Despite good... More

Charming little restaurant with pleasing service and good food. Well run although they were short of waiting staff today. Nice seafront view. Would recommend for an informal lunch.

Such a great little spot for lunch on a chilly day. Would definitely go again. The girl in there didn't catch her name but so friendly and helpful, she made us feel very welcome and spoilt. Also a great spot to people watch!

Often passed by this slim edifice, and wondered how it would be. Today, the sun shining, and Sidmouths' residents taking a promenade before winter sets in, we decided on a visit. We were treated very courteously, but saw evidence that this was not universal. Excellent soup, followed by really hot whitebait and salad. No problems with the food, but was... More

from outside this place does not look much and the decor might put some people off but we had lunch here instead of in a local hotel, whose prices seemed extortionate. We both has a fish dish and it arrived quickly, was hot and generous portions. The taste however was wonderful. This restaurant deserves to be higher up the list... More

Excellent food. Attentive staff. Comfortable surroundings. Not a huge choice on the menu but what was there was very good.

Food is good, if slightly over priced. Drink prices are a joke. A gin and tonic costs the same as a top flight cocktail at Claridges in London. Take out a mortgage if not teetotal!

The sun was shining, the meal was delightful, the wine was excellent, the service was excellent. What I like about the Pea Green is that there's not a microwave in sight, food is cooked there and then, fresh food, good company, great view and time to converse with your fellow diners. No sense of being rushed, almost like eating on... More

Here again in Sidmouth and the Pea Green Boat had been the place to coffee or lunch often, so very disappointed today with OK food that was very delayed. The table booked for 12:30 and we arrived then - the foods ordered 15 mins later but it just would not appear. Finally did so 45 minutes later by which time... More

Great atmosphere as only a handful of tables, blackboard with fish of the day and a complimentary menu featuring rustic pizzas. Great service and just had a lovely feel that we were at a dinner party at home rather than a seafront restaurant
