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.

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.
