Straightforward eatery on the seafront

Ate here one Friday night in July. Was quite busy, but service was good and the food was freshly cooked and tasty. I had the Thai green curry, which was very really nice.

Although the food was nicely presented, it lacked a certain something on several fronts. My friend ordered the monk fish with scallop potatoes... tiny fish and a mere scattering of potatoes! My stuffed pork was ok but I'm still trying to decide what it was stuffed with... I know, I should have asked, but the staff did not seem very... More

3 of us had dinner here. They took our drink order quickly but did not open the wine to offer a n opportunity to taste it! The food was OK although when we asked for spinach for our 'greens' they could only offer peas. The view out to sea was lovely but the furniture could have been improved with linen,... More

Sunday lunch was most disappointing. The roast really was quite poor, although the meat was tasty the roast potatoes were dry and leathery like they had been stood under the lamp on the pass for several hours, the vegetables were uninspiring and small portions. We have been here many times but what has happened? The fish and chips used to... More

Pynes is attached to the Bedford hotel but is open to the public. Sea views and a lovely ambiance has a few comfy chairs in the bar area. Nice range of dishes on the menu with daily specials. Cooked to order and good quality hot food generous portions. Curry night well worth a visit but book as gets busy. House... More

Decided to try out the £11 Wednesday Curry Night in Pyne's Restaurant instead of our included table d'hote dinner. Hotel chefs are Indian so it was very authentic!

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

Coming across this restaurant in the Bedford Hotel, Sidmouth, by chance, we were very pleasantly surprised. The food was well cooked and nicely presented, and the atmosphere of the restaurant was good, too, with attentive staff. Situated along the seafront, the restaurant has picture windows looking out to sea.

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
