I got in for lunch just before a large and indecisive party arrived. I explained I had a bus to catch in an hour or so. My order came very quickly which was nice of them. The manager asked if I wanted in house sparkling or still water. I asked for sparkling but got still. And the oysters served were... More

We had a late lunch at Hix and we were impressed with the delicious fish and seafood served by friendly and knowledgeable staff. Don't book here if you want a cheap meal but if you want expertly fish and seafood in a very pleasant setting in a friendly environment then this is a great treat. P.S. the mini-golf just below...

Visited this weekend and really enjoyed the food and ambience. Very pleasant waitress made it a very enjoyable evening. The front of house manager who sneered and laughed at us going to river cottage the next night, I would like to say river cottage was far better than your place.

Months later I still have fond memories of a truly relaxing sunday. Thank you so much for squeezing us in, explaining the origins of the oysters, and sharing your knowledge about the oyster selection and why they have different flavours. For me, you cant get better than Scrumpy fried oysters. For my husband, you cant beat a selection of Rock... More

Came here for a very special family birthday with a large group of 12 ranging from newborns to aged nearly ninety. The restaurant has a lovely fun and relaxed vibe but with immaculate service and quality of food. Everything was perfectly fresh, locally sourced and presented with great care. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and have never... More

Having booked a table for lunch a week in advance, 24 hrs beforehand we phoned to see if we could swap it to a dinner reservation instead. We were told Hix was full for dinner and the latest they could do a table was 5.30pm which wasn't at all what we were after - especially as we already had a... More

Paying for vegetables separately - really is that a thing? Ridiculously priced.Anyway. Overpriced mediocre food. 2nd visit - thought we'd try again after our first visit a couple of years ago. Great view - very poor food. Doesn't deserve 1 star. Better off in French Lieutenants Bistro or Harbour Inn for superb fish dishes with better service. Will not return... More

Fantastic views of Lyme Regis and delicious food- perfect combination. The staff of Hix Oyster & Fish were attentive, friendly and knowledgable. The lovely lady who showed us to our table was very welcoming and helpful in advising our sons on pudding choices- The salted caramel fondue was great fun. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed sharing the surf n... More

The superb menu is worthy of the fantastic sea-views of this bijou restaurant above the Cob. For the fish-ophobe there was a steak but everyone had a great choice of oysters brilli8antly presented or numerous fish dishes. (Pity no lobster when we went, though). The service was friendly, efficient and well-informed, with no pressure to move on. A must for... More

Relaxed atmosphere with friendly and knowledgeable staff. Delicious food, muscles followed by cuttlefish. Fantastic view of the Cob. The restaurant uses gluten free flour which is great and staff will tell you what dishes to avoid in case of cross contamination. Will hopefully be back again this year.

Description
Hix Oyster & Fish House overlooks the harbour in Lyme Regis and boasts the most stunning panoramic views across the Jurassic coast - this is easily one of the most picturesque spots to enjoy fresh British fish seafood.

The Fish House is an informal, light and airy dining room with simple white wooden tables and chairs. Here the focus is on sourcing and serving the best produce we can find and doing as little to it as possible so that you enjoy the real flavour of great British ingredients.

HIX Oyster and Fish House supports sustainable fishing.
