We had a really lovely evening here, the food wasn't cheap but it was good quality and very fresh. The staff were very polite and attentive and we'd certainly go back

Had dinner there with my niece last week. Good value - if you have ordered your meal by 7 pm you get 20% discount. Crab with mango salsa to start followed by excellent scallops. Desserts a little disappointing but by that stage we were just being greedy! House Sauvignon Blanc (French) was surprisingly good and excellent value for money. We... More

This restaurant saved a truly awful evening when we got bumped off our table at another venue in Lyme Regis. The service was impeccable and the food absolutely first class in every way.

We were staying in Sidmouth for just one night and looking for some variety beyond the hotel restaurant. Tripadvisor Research and recommendation from the hotel led us to Neil's excellent fish and seafood restaurant. The restaurant got very busy but service remained excellent throughout. The food was even better than the wonderful service. The moules marinières held its own with... More

After visiting Neil's the last time we were in Sidmouth we were both very keen to return. We took up the excellent offer of 20% off when eating before 7pm. The House Sauvignon Blanc was excellent as were all the dishes. Neil very kindly served the scallop dish as a starter for me and I followed that with hake. My... More

Ate here twice during a weeks stay in Sidmouth with my family in February. This is not the first time I've eaten here as I've visited Sidmouth many times before over the years. Once again our meals were excellent and I love the fact that everything is cooked to order by Neil. I can personally recommend the mussels and scallops... More
