This place was great but it's now gone because a greedy council wouldn't sort out a way the owner could pay the rent on the place. Unfortunately the only people who can afford Lyme Regis rents are the chains which is why Costa and WH Smith and Boots have all moved in and small businesses are closing. Shame.

Really nice ice cream served right on the beach, so just a short walk. Very friendly staff, and plenty of choice of flavours.

We went to Rinky Tinks after reading the reviews here. We were staying in Lyme Regis for a week during stormy February and it was my husbands birthday. We were out walking along the front and stopped for an ice cream. It was delicious and such a big choice of flavours. The lady who runs it was really friendly and... More

What a great little find this place was. Hubby and I had coffee here twice on our recent break to Lyme Regis. Coffee's are brilliant, beautifully served, great staff, very reasonable prices and in a lovely location.

We visited Rinky Tinks after reading the reviews on tripadvisor. It is well worth searching out as it you carry on the "high road" of the promenade you could easily walk past it! We went on a unusually warm day in early January, and the outside seating was perfect for digging into our delicious ice cream sundaes. I felt the... More

Having been regular visitors to Rinky Tinks for a few years now it was an easy choice to make when looking to find someone to provide us with desserts for our wedding party. Not only are their sundaes absolutely delicious, they are prepared by the most agreeable and happy team you're ever likely to meet! Lucinda and her team were... More

you can't stop kids and icecream - two large Sundaes for the kids accompanied by a flash of sunshine - enough calories for the RDA but very enjoyable! Great menu selection of indulgent treats.

The best ice cream parlour in the area of Lyme. No good watching the figure here. Plenty enough potions for two to share.right on the beach over looking the fabulous cobb. If you like icevcream this is the place to go

Staggered off the beach after four hours of fossil hunting on a November morning. Came across Rinky Tinks and ordered a milk shake and a coffee. My milk shake was the best ever and we enjoyed our drinks looking at wonderful views and relishing the amazing November sunshine. A memory to savour.

I've been here twice, both times have been good experiences, I visited with a pushchair too and even though the space is quite small it was ok. First time we sat under the large parasol, service was great, and so was my banana milk shake, great presentation too. Second visit was on a gorgeous day in October, we sat on... More
