I have frequented this tea shop on several occasions, so felt they deserved a review... I had a lovely cappuccino and a piece of their chantilly jam victoria sponge.. which was delicious.. and light. The service is very friendly and the owners are lovely.. everything is cooked from scratch by Rod.. such as homemade soups...etc.. I will definitely return

Came across this lovely little tea room whilst walking the dogs. The owners were so welcoming & friendly. We sat in the garden with the dogs and ordered our salads, one chorizo and one Apple and tomato with a side of patė and bread. We were so impressed with the giant salads and hunks of patè which were not only... More

We only nipped in out of the rain and we are so glad we did! After looking at the menu we decided to stay for lunch! The kids meals are huge, and with a free ice-cream they are brilliant value for money. My partner and I both had the 6oz burger - it was lovely and once again the portion... More

Returned to the Old Black Dog last weekend, again we had a very enjoyable stay. The hosts Pat and Peter are wonderful, they are very welcoming, warm and genuine. This is a very traditional bed and breakfast, very homely and comfortable. The breakfast is excellent, freshly cooked and well worth waiting for. We look forward to returning again later in... More

Decided to visit Uplyme and came across the Old Black Dog and what a find. The homemade bread served with the pate was both delicious and large in portion, the chorizo salad was Devine. The views to the rear of the cafe were lovely in our elevated position. Friendly staff and choice of tea galore, surely there will be one... More

This B and B is run by a lovely couple who couldn't be more welcoming. Rooms are spotlessly clean and very well stocked. Beautiful area with dog walks on the doorstep and pubs serving good food within either walking distance or a short drive away. The tea room attached to the B and B is also excellent and we intend...

We also used this as a base for Lyme Regis and River Cottage (see the Loricase review below, it's very well written and I agree with it completely). It is a little old fashioned, but very clean and Peter and Pat really could not be more helpful and welcoming hosts. We had a lovely stay. One issue is the walk... More

We were looking for somewhere to stay for our night at River Cottage...this place fitted the bill and some. The B&B is in an old pub with tea rooms attached. It's on quite a busy main road, has 2 (v friendly) resident dogs (kept separate from B&B rooms), is about a 20 minute walk to Lyme Regis (very pleasant through... More

I stayed here recently whilst visiting River Cottage HQ which is a short drive away. The welcome was friendly, beds were comfortable and everywhere was spotlessly clean. There was a well stocked tea tray and plenty of toiletries were available. The room at the rear had lovely views but that at the front did suffer from some road noise which... More
