Best pub food - great selection

Eaten here many times and the standard at the standard is consistently very good! Between all my family we can recommend nearly everything! Sheltered outdoor seating area at a lovely old building right on the seafront (no view)

WOW. this was amazing . the menu was so full of greatchoices alongwith the specials. We visited today and was very pleasantly surprised with Lyme Regis. We saw this pub and went for it, starers and mains were superb, My Partener had a crab salad, the best she has had ever, it turned out to be a whole crab meat!!!... More

We had Sunday lunch on Easter Sunday, we got there just in time because it got very busy. Sunday lunch was good, bit of a wait for our puds but worth it - lovely crumble.

Stopped for lunch and very happy with choices for food. Lots of local fish and some nice Greek inspired meals like sardines and souvlaki. Friendly staff and delicious local beer. Would happily revisit.

In Lyme Regis today and went to the Royal Standard for lunch. We couldn't see the score on the door until we were inside and realised they have a 5 which is nice. Hubby had the beef roast dinner and I had chunky bacon and vegetable soup with a very fresh chunk of brown bread. It was all very filling... More

We often visit Lyme and eat/drink here regularly. We now have a dog and he is welcome here too. On this visit the lovely bar staff even gave him a biscuit! The food is excellent and service is quick. Highly recommend to all.

We had a cheddar and a crab ploughmans on the first day.They are very generous portions and the local bread was amazing!
