We ate twice at Pynes during our week's stay in Sidmouth. I'm gluten-intolerant and the menu had quite a few options available for me. I had halibut on a bed of chorizo and kidney bean ragout with, oddly, avocado. It was bursting with interesting flavours, with balsamic vinegar and chopped olives adding to the melee. The ginger panacotta with pears... More

I've tried to write this in so many different ways and have decided to keep it short. As with most reviews of this nature there is a "they said , we said " component. Good customer service does not come in the form of male members of staff being rude, intimidating and bullying to female patrons. I thought this type... More

Very good choice on the menu. Very well cooked and presented food. Generous portions. Restaurant staff very helpful and friendly. Special curry night on Wednesday and Pie night on Thursday- fish pie especially good. Obviously a very popular restaurant, so it could be agood idea to make reservations

The waitress was very friendly explaining the menu and the specials, we chose drinks and a mixture of food from the standard and specials menus. Both drinks and food arrived promptly. Unfortunately the food was rather disappointing as both my own and my... More

Fantastic freshly prepared food. Lovely atmosphere, great staff, and good wine menu. The view over the promenade is very relaxing, and it's a great place to chill out and watch the world go by.

Four friends enjoyed a fabulous meal here. We had the special scallops, kedigree, quails egg and king prawn which was lovely and tasty. Fish and chips was beautifully white with a tasty batter. The cheese board was great value for money and the cheesecake yummy. It's been a while since we dined here but will happily return much sooner now... More

My mother and I visited Pyne's for Sunday lunch in mid June. After a stroll along the esplanade to build up our appetites, we were impressed with the attractive interior and were shown to our table which was, as requested at the time of booking, by the window with great views out to sea, as were many tables in the...
