Good lunch - look out for the specials board

I've been here several times for Sunday lunch and it never disappoints. The tables by the window have a good view of the sea and passers by. The Sunday roast is popular, but I can never resist the fish options (there are usually several specials on). The haddock risotto is excellent as is the... read more

Normally, when eating out on Christmas day, our expectations are that as long as the food is good and the atmosphere warm and christmassy (sorry for stating the obvious) then that would be nice. We were nothing short of delighted, not only by the food, which was perfect, but by the service too. The staff were cheery, friendly, efficient and... More

Staying in Sidmouth we took friends for a meal, their choice, so ate at Pyne's. Pleasant interior, three fish dishes on the specials board. We started with two teriyaki duck salad & two crab tian with avocado. Both slightly odd. The teriyaki duck was chewy & very (chilli) hot - too hot, made the mouth burn. The crab tian was... More

There were four of us in our party and we had booked as we had though the Bistro Pynes would be lovely.. We did not have a particular welcome, greeting or a smile, and were just directed to the table. The table was on the side so our guests had a view overlooking the Jacobs ladder direction and the sea... More

We've eaten here on and off for the last 3 years and definitely the Wednesday curry nights have improved lately - just make sure you take your poppadom off the naan bread to keep it crispy! Last week's fish and chips was superb but the 'pink' liver was actually red raw and cold inside - no-one came to check if... More

We have been going to Pyne's for a long time, and during this period have had no cause for complaint. Staff are friendly and the food has always been excellent. Best to ring to reserve table.
