“Not quite the level of quality that it's reputed to have”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Chosen to anchor our stay in Lyme Regis as the place to eat well prepared, well cooked, fresh food at a sensible price - we were a little disappointed with what we were presented with. The crab starter was over-sauced and the cod stew was a little over-cooked. One of our party didn't have a main course - but we were still charged for a full meal, which was disappointing. Not a place we can recommend which is a shame as it was billed as 'a place to go' in Lyme Regis

“Delicious, simple and unpretentious.”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Recommended by other trip advisors and friends alike this was a must do visit and it doesn't disappoint if you like homemade, unpretentious, delicious food. We went for lunch but l would love to have had breakfast and stayed for afternoon tea too. We had drinks and two 'bread bowls' one with vegatable curry the other with a cold salad with humous. Both were really delicious and very filling - l ate all the curry but could only manage half the bowl. Long benches you share with other dinners feels like you share a community spirit rather than feel imposed upon and the whole experience including service will be remembered as a highlight to our trip. We also bought a large artesan loaf back to enjoy at home and this was without doubt the best bread l have eaten in the UK, and only bettered marginally by the large italian loaves enjoyed in Naples.

“Saturday Supper Club YUM!”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

We were looking for somewhere to eat on Saturday night and got booked in to here at 7:45. Even though all the restaurants in Lyme say they are booked up, they don't seem to be full, so always ask!!

We had a lovely meal here. An Italian inspired and small menu. Perfect!
Fresh fish, seasonal veg and local wines. Fabulous!

“really interesting”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

the old mill site has been out to good use, not just the restored mill which is open for tours and where you can buy flour you've just seen milled, but also a pottery, gallery, micor-brewery, cheesemonger and sewing shop

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

This is one of those areas of Lyme Regis that is well worth a walk to, and you can continue on to either the beach or up the Lym away from the town. A great mixture of shops to check out, buy / drink local great beer, a fantastic range of cheeses and ice cream, and even local art work and crafts. The final stop can be for something to to eat, or visit the working mill and hydro power mill. Hidden away but well worth a visit.
