We decided to give this place another chance after a very disappointing meal last April. Alas, things have got worse, not better. We were a party of eight, which had made the booking well in advance, and were eating near the start of lunchtime service. There can, therefore, be can be no justification for: - only 'three or four' portions... More

We love this intimate little restaurant which has delighted us on each visit. The staff have got the balance just right - they were very attentive and helpful without being at all intrusive. The meals were delicious, well proportioned and beautifully presented - not skimpy works of modern art! Will definitely go back again next time we're in Lyme.

A small restaurant and we were not sure if the food would be good after some poor meals in town. Amazing evening with fabulous food for a family of 3 including one vegetarian. Would not hesitate to return.

Having read previous reviews our experience fell well below our expectations for the price. Great little restaurant vibrant and simple decor. However we then ordered starters, only for the waitress to return to say they had sold out of one dish. I would have thought Chef would have kept them updated before taking order. One friend ordered pigeon and found... More

The starters looked and tasted delicious, and we followed with cod and fish pie -... More

Food and Service always top-notch. Jess and her team are just great - you always get a warm welcome - they remember locals and what we like and don't like.

Four or us ate here on a Friday night. Delicious food, service a little slow but cheerful, and the food well worth waiting for. Lovely characterful area of town. I really recommend this place. We especially loved the slow roast belly pork!
