The Fish House is an informal, light and airy dining room with simple white wooden tables and chairs.

We found this fish restaurant excellent. The food was great and the service at its best. The service at table we could not fault. Loved the cocktail and the receipe was written down for me to take away. From our experience that evening it did not dissapoint.

We had been looking forward to the meal for a long time. Booked ages in advance and they rang me to confirm the day before. Despite expecting us, on arrival 5 mins before our table time we were ushered outside onto the wet and rainy balcony as there was nowhere else to wait for 20mins while they recovered the over...

Don't understand the few negative reviews here. The staff could not have been more helpful, informative and attentive without being intrusive. The fish was cooked to perfection. Highly recommend the scallops - just wonderful taste, with crispy pork belly bits and a touch of garlic. The cherry pie was baked perfectly with light crisp pastry and plenty of fruit. Also... More

As my wife and I both love seafood we decided to give Hix a bash, normally I check reviews to get a feel but was unable to do so before I booked. We arrived for our 8:30pm table at 8:15pm to be told that it was not quite ready and would we like to have a drink on the decking.... More

We visited the restaurant on the 18 th of August as it was our 25 wedding anniversary. We had chosen to stay at the Bull in Bridport which I had wanted to stay in for several years and was not disappointed. Oh how I wished we'd had our anniversary dinner there as the best thing about the Hix establishment really... More

for a restaurant that charges as much as this the service was was more than shoddy. Food on the whole above average, but don't expect treatment like you would in a London restaurant that would be charging similar prices. Overall, disappointed - too much trading on sleb chef association!

The setting of Hix Oyster & Fish House overlooking the Cobb and the seafront in Lyme Regis is stunning and a setting as good as this then needs to deliver on its food and dining experience. I am happy to say it delivers on all fronts. The service as soon as you set foot in the restaurant to the moment... More

I had a delicious lunch at Hix in the late summer. Each dish I had tasted fresh, creative and well thought through and well seasoned. The service I had, was more than acceptable. Was offered to sample two wines I couldn't choose between and they were more than accommodating of my request of a long pause between being seated and... More

Welcome was terrible - table not ready, food was very average and over priced - we had to wait an hour for our dinner to be served (when restaurant was not particularly busy) with no apology when it arrived and service overall was shocking. They also had the temerity to ask for a second chance. One to avoid - this... More
