Lyme Regis seemed to have closed down for the night when we went out to eat at 9pm on a Sunday. The Pilot Boat and a local Indian were the only places still serving food. We were made welcome and encouraged to make our selection as soon as possible. I had an acceptable lasagne and a good glass of Malbec.... More

What a shame that the basic act of drawing off the first lines through the line was missed.This resulted in 2 pints tasting of cleaning fluid.We mentioned this to the bar manager and bar staff who agreed they could taste bad but didn't offer fresh drinks.It was our wedding anniversary and we didn't want a scene so we left the...

We have eaten here many times as they always offer a good choice for veggies. The food is generally very simple but tasty and they are always very accommodating to make changes to the dishes offered. Good choice of wines and beer too. The staff are friendly.

Having eaten here many times before on previous holidays, my wife and I thought we would have a nice evening meal. The restaurant wasn't busy so we had no problem finding a table. The menu on the table was a single sheet of paper and meals very basic and not very appealing. We eventually settled for something from the specials... More

My mum was very ill after eating a crab sandwich in here. The only other thing she had all day was a cup of tea. The guy behind the bar was just rude and not very welcoming. We thought it looked nice from the outside, sadly thats as good as it got. Avoid.

If you want a good meal at a reasonable price this is the place for you. We didn't have long to wait for our food which was served by friendly helpful staff. Regular visitors to Lyme and this is the place we always go to.

In 2011 we first visited the pub, we go to Lyme for a week every year. The food is fantastic, in 2012 we ate there 4 times in 1 week, the food is fresh and delicious. The owner is a good man and the elderly barmaid is fantastic.
