Have just returned from a week in lyme regis and disappointingly only discovered The Millside in our final hours!! We had lunch there before returning 'up north!'
The 1st thing that attracted me was the childrens menu - after a week of something and chips I was delighted to discover a childrens menu that was simply smaller versions of the adult menu! Having said that, my son chose Ham, Eggs and chips! But this was beautiful hand carved ham, free range egg and hand cut chips! He chose a scoop of local ice cream for pudding - the childrens menu was approx £6-7 I think - amazing quality.
I chose Pork belly with black pudding mash - which the mash was unavailable and was only plain mash - but it was the best mash I have tasted in my life!! My Mum had lemon sole - both were the daily special and top quality.
The choice of food was exceptional - on top of this was outstanding service - from the moment I stuck my head through the door and received a cherry "hello" to leaving, the waitress was perfect! She had fantasic knowledge of the menu, and when we complimented the mash and mentioned we had no idea why it tasted sooo good - she returned 5mins later with the Chefs recipe! (it's all in the whisking and ground white pepper!)
The drinks choice was wide - just ahead of a long journey I only looked at soft drinks, of which there was a lovely choice. The wine list looked comprehensive.
Mum's Lemon Sole was a Special and was £18.50 - a huge portion and supreme quality. My Pork Belly was £12.00 and had a super generous pork portion! The desserts were all £5 and were hard to choose between! I had Lemon tart (to die for!) and Mum had strawberries and clotted cream!
My ownly disappointment was not staying in Lyme long enough to be able to return for dinner on another day!!
