Me and my girlfriend went here for lunch one Sunday, and although the weather was cold and grey, our experience was anything but! We were the first party in with a midday booking, so we're treated to the window seat of two. The view was spectacular, I knew it'd be good but it's just breathtaking, literally the Jurassic coast as... More

Third time we have eaten here and it's always been a pleasure. As other reviewers have said its the food and views and relaxed staff you come for rather than expensive chairs and hardware. My wife had the mixed beetroot salad and I had the excellent crab soup as a starter. She had sea bass with bacon and sprouts, yes... More

An excellent restaurant in a superb location, overlooking the cobb and harbour. The menu is interesting and the food excellent. Friendly staff who know what needs doing without being reminded. Well worth a visit and we will definitely be back.

One of the best places to view the sun setting on the Jurassic coast with good food and wine. Have been a number of times and it can be hit or miss as an overall experience but when on song it is a great combination. Service is good and there is a strong ethos of local sourcing.

we had planned to take the family out for fish & chips from the award winning chippy in the town and we parked in the large car park above the Cobb and walked a little way down the hill and turned into the gardens. This is one of our favourite views of Lyme Bay and as we were standing outside... More

This time, 3 of us came for a late lunch. We didn't get a window table (which we'd requested and some remained empty whilst we were there) but maybe next time... However you can still see across the harbour and out to sea as the positioning and panoramic windows allow this and make the whole place so light. Service is... More

This was our first visit to the Oyster and Fish House which may well account for our slight disappointment. We had heard that the food was excellent - it was; no complaints on that score. We had heard that the sea view was wonderful - it was. We heard that it was friendly and the staff would take time to... More

My partner and I had the pleasure of a second visit to Lyme just this weekend and we just absolutely love it. The gem that is Hix just really is a must to go to for a lovely long chilled lunch.
