The food has been superb both times I have been here. Friends introduced us to the food here and I can't fault how good it is. The Dover Sole is the dish for me either with prawns or capers and lemon butter sauce, superb !!! My wife had the capers and I had the prawns on the Dover sole. Since... More

We ate in Pynes twice, whilst staying at the Bedford Hotel. It was really nicely decorated and had a great atmosphere and was very busy both nights, you certainly need to book, especially at this time of year. There's a good menu, not massive but plenty of options and a specials board, which has plenty of fish choices, which I... More

Popped in for a drink and look around with a view to dining in the evening. We were hardly made to feel welcome with the bar staff almost grunting at us. Instead of making us feel welcome we actually got the impression that we were a nuisance and in the way. We went instead to the Anchor which, although styling... More

Our welcome was cool, in fact had to go to the bar to announce our arrival. A waiter in fact turned his back on us as we came through the door and went behind the bar. The food was very ordinary. My Vegetable Korma was very basic with very ordinary vegetables, expected something a bit more exciting.

Last minute decision to eat at Pynes at The Bedford. Excellent and courteous service. Very tasty roast lamb, and well cooked vegetables.Well presented. Desserts were good, and the cinnamon ice cream something different. Good quality wines served at appropriate temperature. Pleasant ambiance.

Visited for pie night and wasn't disappointed. Steak pie was delicious as was the veg (beautifully cooked and not 'frozen' as one reviewer stated). Brocilli, tasty parsnips along with cabbage & ham. The pie and pastry were great and all 5 of our plates were cleaned up! Dessert also tasty; lemon sponge & ice cream beautifully presented. Lovely surroundings in... More

Set in the middle of the esplanade in Sidmouth lovely views. Modern pleasing decor, friendly and attentive staff. Returned a few times food was amazing each time. Reasonable prices nice wines at a good price. House Sauvignon Blanc to be recommended. Curry night was surprising different Thai cirrus as well as the korma. Would go again and thoroughly recommended it... More
