“Great pub food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

We ate in the evening on three occasions. Service was excellent and we can thoroughly recommend the steak and ale pie or the beef in red wine. Both came in pots and the quality and quantity was first rate.

“I had fish and chips!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

It may not sound like a great claim at a seaside pub but I'm coeliac, which means that normally fish and chips isn't even on my radar. But they offer an extensive gluten free menu so there really was only one option for me. And it was delicious!

Oh, and there was a lot of it and it was great value. Need I say more?

“Dreadfully unfriendly place”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

Seemed prime location and the menu looked broad enough to satisfy most tastes. Asked if we could run a tab when we arrived and the friendly young man said we could. When we went to order some drinks though the very grumpy landlord said they wouldn't run a tab, making no attempt to apologise or, more alarmingly, smile. Definitely a place that takes its clientele for granted, having such a good location. We decided we weren't welcome enough to eat so we found somewhere else.

Cobb A, Owner at Cobb Arms Restaurant, responded to this review, October 31, 2013
I am very sorry but our policy is not to run bar tabs, we do this because we are usually very busy , cusomers order at the bar and pay directly, so when tables come and go the table would be cleaned and new customers would be seated, if one table askes for a tab, we would not know that the customer had been and cleared the bill. before leaving, as we do not have a facility on our till system to keep tabs open, we are not allowed by law to hold a credit card behind the bar as has been suggested to us.
We offer cash back, and would of happily done this while you were ordering your food, we are not complaicent with our position, and work extreamly hard to do the high volume of meals our kitchen produces,always done to order,specials catering for all tastes, excepional gulten free options etc.Please do not dismiss this pub without trying first.

“Fantastic gluten free fish and chips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

My day was made complete by the fantastic gluten free menu, but particularly the fish and chips. Amazing. The best gluten free meal I've had in the 21 years I've been a coeliac. Would highly recommend to all those needing gluten free food within a travelling distance of Lyme Regis.
