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.

Very good value well cooked pub food with a good list of specials. Quite a small regular menu but a changing specials board. Very well run pub/restaurant with helpful staff. The food was tasty and good sized without being huge. Overall very good value for money.

I've visited Lyme on many occasions summer and winter. It's the only pub I go in, the decor doesn't do it justice, it looks strange for a pub inside. The food is all homemade and great. Can't fault it.

We were so glad to come into this very old and historic pub out of the howling gale on the sea front. The welcome from behind the bar was really warm and friendly and we enjoyed pots of tea while we warmed up and chose from the extensive menu. We had the tomato and cheese bruschettas which were nicely presented... More

The Pilot Boat is on a busy corner, right on the waterfront. We received a friendly welcome and were soon served with drinks. We ordered fresh crab sandwiches which were freshly prepared and served with a salad garnish. They were absolutely delicious, so tasty and fresh. It probably gets very busy in the summer months but on a chilly Saturday... More

We had lunch on 11th October. My wife had a hot bacon sandwich and the bacon was quite fatty. The bread was like the standard supermarket type. The accompanying salad was very spartan. I had fish and chips which was about average. The barmaid was not too good at pouring drinks which frothed over onto the bar counter. So, all... More

If fish is your choice ignore the pretty boring menu, but go inside and look at the specials. If fish are included, choose from the list. The two of us started with sprats which were really delicious, followed by two large succulent plaice, beautifully cooked, washed down with wine of an acceptable quality. Elegant this establishment may not be, but... More

My two friends and I ate lunch here on Saturday 1st June. The staff member who served us was very friendly and helpful. Two of us had the lemon sole, which was fresh and delicious - served with new potatoes and salad and the third member of our party had the mushroom stroganoff which she said was very tasty. I...
