Found this place by chance after looking for a single nights stay to start the Wessex Ridgeway. All other places in Lyme wanted min of two nights. So glad to have found The Old Black Dog as it is a perfect place to start. Pat and Peter were perfect host on our short stay. Also Tea room staff were very... More

We have used the Black Dog many times in the past and it is to my regret that I have overlooked reporting on it until now. The bed and breakfast facility is located in Uplyme on the main Lyme Regis road on the left as you approach Lyme itself. The property used to be a public house but is now... More

Stayed for two nights, lovely hosts Peter and Pat made us feel very welcome. Traditional B&B clean comfortable everything you need, nice and quiet. Contemporary and modern it's not but hospitality and service which sometimes get left behind are abundant at the Old Black Dog.

We stayed here for one night because we were visiting River Cottage, and can honestly say that we received the warmest welcome we have ever experienced in any hotel or guesthouse! I hope Pat and Peter won't be offended when I say that the guesthouse is of old fashioned style, lots of period features, but this isn't a bad thing.... More

Old fashioned in the very best sense of the words - Pat and Peter are kind and attentive hosts. The bedroom had everything I needed - clean and well looked after. My bed was supremely comfortable and the breakfast was delicious - local sausages, great bacon, perfect scrambled egg. Thank you.

We had a very pleasant stay at the Old Black Dog on our way to Cornwall. The owners made us feel very welcome and were more than happy to accommodate our new baby. Breakfast was great and the walk to Lyme Regis along the stream was lovely (only 15mins with a pram). This is a great affordable option just outside... More

Driving into Lyme Regis (Sept 2013) and just stopped off at the Old Black Dog, Uplyme. Very nice tea room with a warm, friendly welcome. Fantastic selection of real tea and out of this world homemade apple cake. Yum! Owners were very friendly, and even went out of their way to find directions for us.

On the way out of Lyme Regis, having failed to find parking and desperate for a break, we came across The Old Black Dog by chance. The tearoom was listed as open 2-5 pm and it was 4:59, but we couldn't have been made more welcome. Choice of teas (leaf, not bags) and delicious home-made apple cake. Lovely clean, fresh... More

We just stopped in for a meal and were so pleased with the food. We had a wonderful carrot soup and tea from their excellent selection. We also enjoyed a dessert made from sponge cake and whipped cream filling. Then we sat around and spoke with the owner of the B&B and the young couple in the tea room. They... More

If you’re looking for a traditional homely B&B I couldn’t recommend The Old Black Dog more. Pat and Peter are very welcoming and suggested we take a walk down the lane behind the B&B rather than the main road in to town. I highly recommend this! It was a very scenic route and a lovely way to start exploring Lyme... More
