Not very busy for dinner out of season, and has gone downhill since we last ate here a couple of years ago. Cuttlefish was well cooked, and a straightforward dressed crab was liked, but a dish of mixed squash was a mess - some cooked ok, some not. Service was pretty good from the two guys, and the setting is... More

When friends heard that we'd be staying near Lyme Regis, they said that we "must go to Hix". I wish we hadn't. Nothing actually wrong with the food, but I felt that we were paying for the name. I suppose some people like this sort of thing. Starters: The cider-cured sardines were like smaller, slightly less acidic, rollmops; the smoked... More

As frequent visitors to Lyme Regis we have regularly dined here. Food and drinks are overpriced but the location is outstanding and we decided to book in advance and take our French friends for an afternoon tea. We rang and booked the table at the front with the best view. On arrival at 4.00 p.m. we were allocated a table... More

Lovely menu, beautifully-cooked fish and good choice of drinks. My side order of seasonal vegetables comprised three kinds of cabbage. Very healthy but tough and chewy.

Just back from an early birthday gift - dinner at Hix with a dear friend. My third visit in as many years, and lived up to my earlier impressive memories. Attentive but not intrusive service and friendly - icing on the cake. Remembering the satisfying portions before we went straight to the main and both had the fish fingers -... More

We went on a Saturday night and there were lots of locals there - hmm, must be a lot of money in Lyme Regis! It is good but expensive. If you have a drink before, a bottle of wine and three courses plus coffee then expect around £150 for two. My wife likes fish but I went for steak which... More

We stumbled on this beautiful little restaurant on the last day of our holiday and managed to get booked for an evening meal. The panoramic view from here of Lyme Regis harbour is amazing. The service was impeccable with a lovely choice of dishes on the menu. Was a bit more then we normally pay but the whole package of... More

We ate here in the evening. I'm sure the views are great in daylight but at night all I could see was my reflection in the glass as the interior lighting was rather bright and my chair faced the glass as if there was a view. There is also a weird coloured circular fluorescent? The food was good, we are... More

Came over from Canada with a great friend from Bournemouth/Chiswick and not only did she recommend Mark Hix, some friends in London did as well. While the food was good, the service was poor. Our table ran out of wine and water without notice. We had to signal the two staff members to fill us up with both so we... More
