Sunday Lunch in Lyme

We finished off our weekend with friends by having Sunday Lunch here. I had the pork which was moist with lovely crackling....service was excellent and they were very busy but very organised and professional. All the girls had gin fizz cocktails...fab way to finish an enjoyable weekend.

a bit difficult to find on a rainy night but they managed to fit in 5 adults, a 5 year old and a baby at quite short notice. The food was excellent and the staff extremely helpful. Would definitely recommend,.

Tthe Millside Restaurant sitting at the heart of Lyme Regis already has a reputation on these pages, and I hope our own review of it doesn't sound too nit-pickinly disappointing. We had booked by phone the previous day, although when we arrived the restaurant seemed taken quite by surprise - obviously the booking had not been actioned as a result.... More

It has been a few years since we had been to The Millside, but our latest visit was well worth the wait. The food was superb - local, seasonal produce used to create an excellent menu, with all the dishes bang on the money. The wine list complimented the food perfectly and the service was first class, with the staff... More

Lovely restaurant and staff could not be more helpful and friendly. We were delayed getting there so were 15mins late. I called to explain and although they needed our table for a later sitting, they worked around our lateness seamlessly and made it completely stress-free. The food was delicious and the atmosphere is cosy and welcoming. We had a lovely... More

We have dined here for the last four years on our summer holidays with family and a four year old grandson who started at the Millside aged four and is now eight! The staff are friendly, funny and helpful. We always sit in the bistro area, by the fish tank, better for children here I think. The food has been... More

A small restaurant but I had a very good Sunday Roast whilst the rest of the family had Fish Pie that was well received. Very good food and service and is located in a small lane at the side of an old Mill and a local Brewery.

My wife and I managed to book a table for dinner after passing during the day and liking the look of the menu. Very friendly welcome, nice simple decor, good wine list and the best bit for me was the Specials Board. Lovely scallops with pea shoots and a delicious foam to start. Although the mains had a great choice... More

Rang in the afternoon for a table for 2 for 7.30 and they could only fit us in the bistro area at 7 which we agreed to. When we arrived we could see why; there are only about 24 covers in the restaurant and a further 10 in the bistro. As we were early by our standards, we had drinks... More

I had cod and 3 times cooked chips and mushy peas which was delicious, all freshly cooked to order, and the best chips I have ever eaten!
