Hix Oyster & Fish House overlooks the harbour in Lyme Regis and boasts the most stunning panoramic views across the Jurassic coast - this is easily one of the most picturesque spots to enjoy fresh British fish seafood.

The Fish House is an informal, light and airy dining room with simple white wooden tables and chairs. Here the focus is on sourcing and serving the best produce we can find and doing as little to it as possible so that you enjoy the real flavour of great British ingredients.

Expensive anticlimax, displaying no passion or interest. Best feature is the view

This was our second visit to Hix in Lyme Regis. At our first visit we were stunned by the outlook across Lyme Bay, the food was good, but not excellent, and the service was disappointing capped by a mistake on the bill (bottle of wine ordered but never arrived at the table but being charged... read more

Great friendly welcome from the Manager - shown to a great table - they're all great actually as 3 sides of the Restaurant are glass walled to give you a panoramic view of Lyme Bay and the Cobb. The menu was mostly fish (although I think there was one meaty selection in the mains). We shared a fruits de Mer... More

We loved this place. We were greeted warmly & though we hadn't booked & the brief period of sunshine had brought out more diners than they obviously anticipated we were shown a table, offered drinks & menus straightaway. If they were flapping, they weren't showing it! This really is little more than a hut, in terms of it's size..a hut... More

First time at Hix as we were staying over locally. Booked in advance and then started reading the very mixed reviews on here. To be honest, I was very nervous about going as we got closer to the time but we went anyway and I'm glad we did. Service was first class, so I've no idea whether there's been a... More

We visit every February for our anniversary and love it ever more! The food always so delicately balanced yet complex. A wonderfully calm ambience ensures a great dining experience, quality every time! We were also delighted to meet Charles tonight, a true gent that after only 4 days managing at Hix, Lyme - is showing great flare and finesse in... More

Oh dear, what a badly managed place. And so over priced. In the summer, the selling feature for this fish restaurant must be the views over the bay. But on a winter evening what was on offer didn't compensate for its dark windows. Simple decor with "undressed" wood tables might be trendy, but you felt they needed a good scrub... More

I took my wife and daughter for Dinner. Food was very average my fish stew was cold and having been sent back returned no warmer. Fish pie was over salted and not up to scratch. Generally staff did there best but were young with no sign of manager/ maitre d'. I made appropriate comment but only received polite apologies. Shame... More

Fantastic spot in Lyme Regis overlooking the whole of the front, but there are plenty of other establishments along the front that serve better food for less, and exclude the horrendous 12.5% service charge on everything (including tea and coffee).

Booked for a birthday lunch, it was never mentioned. Decided on the set menu and the food was well cooked but the whole experience lacked the expectation we had of this establishment. Hard to say exactly why but it has to do with very plain table but high end prices. £6 for a bottle of beer!! The view of Lyme... More
