Always dine at Neil's when we are in Sidmouth as its simply a sheer joy to experience his food and the service his team give. Went with friends on New Years Eve to enjoy his five course menu. Absolutely superb from start to finish. There is little more one can say. We are never disappointed so always take friends knowing... More

Beautiful 5-course meal for New Year's Eve at a very reasonable price. We visit Neil's whenever we stay in Sidmouth, and have never been disappointed.

Fabulous restaurant. We spent new Years Eve here and use it whenever we're down for Folk Week. Interesting and varied menu, everything cooked to perfection, excellent service and a lovely atmosphere. One of my favourite places.

We were warmly greeted by friendly and efficient staff. The wine list has some reasonable offerings at decent prices albeit restaurant prices) and clearly this is not the place to go if you don't like fish. Both our meals were good although H's sea bream may have been cooked a little too long. My large cod steak was excellent. Good... More

Most probably the best seafood restaurant I have been to for a while and I live in London, the home of Michelin star restaurants...Back to basics where freshness is the core ingredient. A gem waiting to be discovered. Superb.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Neil's - we ate the fish of course although they do offer meat or vegetarian options. The service was warm and friendly and not too hurried, nobody wants a night out in a nice restaurant where you have finished your meal in an hour. We had the mullet and the cod - lovely.

Consistently good but primarily serves fish and seafood. A little bit expensive but the quality is there with good service. Owner is the chef and visible to customers.

Don't really understand the gushing reviews below unless I am missing something. You will either like the décor in this restaurant or not. It is very simple, in the modern style, and if you closed your eyes and opened them again it could be an Italian or any other sort of similar place. Staff are jolly enough and the place... More

Fresh fish, menu chosen to match the catch, lovingly prepared by a highly-skilled pair of hands. Service was wonderful and attentive and the wine a perfect accompaniment. Flawless. But don't take my word for it, just go there!
