A lovely surprise

We were wandering the back streets of Lyme Regis, and oh my, what a discovery. We were made very welcome, and salivating, we chose our cake from the stunning selection. We had the hummingbird cake, but it was the toughest decision we have made all day. Their choices were divine. Fabulous relaxed... read more

Breakfast croissants and pain au chocolat were amazing. Limited choice of breads for toasting. Jams delicious . Just felt the sparkle was missing from last visit three years ago. No warm welcome from staff. Almost felt like an unwanted tourist!

My husband found their food blog before we went to Lyme for the day so we decided to go for breakfast after a rather chilly ride down from Bristol on our motorbikes! Lovely toast and jam and fresh pastries and a good cup of coffee - would quite like to return to try lunch there on another occasion. Only downside... More

Been here for breakfast and afternoon and both were great. As previously said by others you sit as communal tables which is a lovely ideas. At breakfast you help yourself to unlimited toast for £2.50 with a selection of jams on the tables. They also have 'make you own' boiled eggs for £1 where you put you egg into a... More

Fantastic rustic community style eatery. Very simple but delicious food baked in house. We ate breakfast here a few mornings. Totally self service and based on trust- you help yourself and pay on way out, listing what you had. A delightful concept that probably only works in a close knit community.

Love this place. Its really different. You sit at refectory tables so very communal. Food is excellent and so is the coffee. There is no rushing. This time we had a soup meal which was served in a bowl made of bread! Very original! Nice fresh ingredients and nice to be able to see the breads and food being made.... More

Been going to the Town Mill Bakery for years and the food is as good as ever. It's not cheap but with bread and pastries this good that's ok. The great shame is the lack of care - care for the customers and care about the place. It's a mess! Bakers who used to be proud to work in a... More

Stumbled across The Bakery for lunch this week. Tempted in by outside diners food. Walked in and waited and waited and waited. Girl sorting till out next to us looked at us then quickly avoided eye contact. About to leave and smiley lad finally said hello. A vague description on self service style was given. Food chosen and sat down.... More
