We ate twice here during Folk Week and enjoyed both meals. Tablecloths, linen napkins, carpet on the floor, no background music, polite, unhurried service - all these are attributes of quality which are in such a marked contrast to many of the eating houses in the town during that week. The food was of good quality too - not at... More

So let's start with the food which was inventive and (in the main) well prepared. Jerked lamb was very tasty if a little too minty and the duck and cherry also very good. Peas served with the lamb had past their best and were beginning to yellow, but still edible. Broccoli and chickpea side was a star of a dish.... More

We found Pyne's which is part of the Bedford Hotel one of the best places to eat out in Sidmouth. This is based on a a two-week stay and we tried a lot of places. Sea view, gentile atmosphere, good wines (some by the glass) and innovative menu. Booking is advised. Recommended for sure.

I love that he just uses one, herb/spice/vegetable or sauce to enhance the flavour of the dish. Quality ingredients, simply cooked I would say and beautifully presented. Excellent... More

Ed in here on the spur of the moment for lunch with a friend, yesterday. Sell a pleasant place to be sure. Service was excellent, very polite staff and the food was very very good. I shall be going back soon for sure. No cheap, but if you want quality , not expensive either.
