“Just came for the food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We just stopped in for a meal and were so pleased with the food. We had a wonderful carrot soup and tea from their excellent selection. We also enjoyed a dessert made from sponge cake and whipped cream filling. Then we sat around and spoke with the owner of the B&B and the young couple in the tea room. They gave us lots of great information about Lyme Regis which really enhanced our visit there.

If you’re looking for a traditional homely B&B I couldn’t recommend The Old Black Dog more. Pat and Peter are very welcoming and suggested we take a walk down the lane behind the B&B rather than the main road in to town. I highly recommend this! It was a very scenic route and a lovely way to start exploring Lyme Regis. Fantastic breakfast and one of the cleanest bathrooms I’ve ever seen!

A great place to stay. comfortable rooms, well behaved dogs welcome and our old black dog loved her breakfast sausage. Breakfast was always superb with a friendly welcome and the added benefit of attached tea room.

What a lovely little B&B - Pat and Peter are lovely hosts, friendly and accommodating. The room was comfortable, bright and clean (and a lovely view as an extra bonus). No, it's not a sleek, modern hotel room - it's a classic, homely B&B with a comfortable bed and an en-suite that is simple and offers all one can need. Parking is ample and the well maintained gardens are a real delight.

For £40 single occupancy rate you also get a fantastic freshly cooked breakfast, great local sausages, bacon and eggs with all the trimmings, washed down with plenty of fresh coffee and orange juice. Pat and Peter are exactly the sort of hosts you'd want in a B&B, providing an excellent and friendly service and offering some good tips as to where to visit and nice walks down to the sea front.

I will definitely be back again for a wedding scheduled for next year!

Room Tip: Rooms 1 (where I stayed) and room 6 (where friends in the same group stayed) offer beautiful views o...

Was so impressed with The Old Black Dog. Pete and Pat so welcoming and added to the lovely stay we had. Rooms spacious and had everything you needed, even coffee and biscuits for the morning and all the toiletries you need in the en suite. Maps of Lyme Regis, all tourist info etc.. All the small touches (such as sweets in pots dotted around the place!) The cleanliness was impeccable. Breakfast brilliant, great quality food and a lot of choice. The tra room attached had fabulous home made cakes too! Location really good - two minutes drive from the centre of Lyme or a 15 minute walk. And room number 6 gorgeous view! I would not hesitate to stay there again and will definitely be recommending them! Thanks guys!

This is an establishment that cares for their guests, not in an overbearing or fussy way - just tip-top professionalism. From the traffic advice prior to arrival, charming greeting for both myself and the dog, shown how everything works in the room, great choice of teas and coffee in the room, good wi-fi (unusual in this area) and good information on walks. The room and breakfast all first class. We will be back.

We have been staying here about twice a year for the past 4 years without our two kids. The family room has bunks and a double with an ensuite and is always clean and warm. Pat and Peter are the perfect hosts and their breakfasts are fantastic. This year we have also taken friends and our vegetarian extended family and everyone has commented on how great it is. The walk from the back of the car park takes you straight into Lyme Regis along the river which is beautiful and they now have a tea room for when you get back from a day on the beach.

Room Tip: The family room is great for small kids but they also have a twin and a double and this year they pr...
