I came across this restaurant whilst exploring Lyme Regis on a weekend break with my wife. It is situated behind the main street in a secluded courtyard and looked very peaceful welcoming in the early evening sunshine so we made a booking for later that night. We returned half an hour or so before our booking and chose to sit... More

Some say that there are no affordable and good English restaurants with. Well the Millside has proven the opposite. You will find cheaper places of course but this restaurant was worth every pound. It was a warm evening just perfect to sit on the small and very cosy terrace. It has a very friendly atmosphere and the staff are very... More

Found this wee place tucked away off the main beachside drag and so glad we did. You'll definitely find cheaper but looking for somewhere with a very nice ambience, good service, great food and equally good wine selection then this ticked all the boxes. Turning up on a summer Thursday evening without a reservation to a busy restaurant is always... More

Stumbled over this place and returned for lunch - so pleased we did; great food... mussels were lovely, super selection and all delicious. Really friendly staff, great wines and good prices.

Friendly welcome, however main restaurant was full so were offered a seat near the kitchen/bar/entrance which was fine but it lacked atmosphere. Food was ok but over priced for what it was.... generous portion sizes but lacked seasoning. Good wine list though, lots of choice :)

Been eating here every time we have come to Lyme Regis and never disappointed, from coffee and bacon buggies to 3 course fine dining with excellent wines all at reasonable prices. Highly recommended.

Had a lovely tasty meal here recently on a Saturday night, Beware if you book via their website as the booking system showed no availability for the date I'd chosen. I decided to call on the off chance and was able to book in without problem. The restaurant was busy, food good to very good, the only negative was the... More

My partner and I both enjoyed the food. Service was good; helpful and polite waitress, who had knowledge of the menu. We had to wait for our food, as it was freshly prepared. We were offered very tasty homemade bread whilst we waited. Our actual meal was lovely, and and all the elements very tasty and cooked well.. Lots of... More

Had heard it was a good place to eat but was disappointed. A very large dish of mussels proved to be a bit 'hit and miss' with lots of them not open. When I told the waitress she apologised and came back with a message from the chef to say sorry but he had given extra in case. I never... More
