Sunday lunch with English weather for our Kiwi friends. Apart from the strident music when we arrived soon turned down this was a reasonably peaceful lunch on a bright sunny day. Some very good simple food not pretentious or elaborate but tasty. Squalls and double rainbows on the Cobb after finished the afternoon off nicely.

Perfectly situated with excellent bay views and some outside tables - weather permitting! Very friendly and knowledgeable staff and the fish soup starter was superb. The service was relaxed and portions large enough for even a big eater. Good choice of wines at reasonable prices.

Second visit to Hix and both excellent, including food, drink and service. Location is amazing too, with the restaurant being glass fronted and views across the bay. The weather was lovely on both of our visits, but I think it would be nice to visit on a stormy day! I'm really surprised there's a relatively high number of poor reviews... More

Had been looking forward to dining here during our weeks stay at Lyme Regis. Arrived at the restaurant and it was exceptionally hot inside, we were shown to the worst table in the restaurant right in front of the bar and next to where the waiters drop all the dirty plates and cutlery, not a great start. The restaurant was... More

Good food, good wine list. Service fairly slow but relaxed and not at all stuffy. Best view in Lyme.

My partner and I were lucky enough to grab a walk-in table on our visit to Hix's. We opted for the cockle popcorn to start - which was really tasty, our mains (dressed crab and mackerel) were prepared beautifully, and the sides were also delicious. I loved my dessert of chocolate mouse which was lovely and rich but the plum... More

Having eaten in The Tramshed we were eager to try another Hix establishment. We we not disappointed. We went for the Oyster Happy Hour and had dinner afterwards. As it was early we had the entire restaurant to ourselves for a while. The views of the Cobb and the coastline are great. Staff were attentive and friendly from the moment... More

We had a window table overlooking the harbour, and the gorgeous view was matched by the food: wonderful flavours, tastefully presented - the hake head in particular was a sight to behold. Service was excellent: helpful and informative. Food not cheap but very fairly priced for such high quality; wine, though, a bit expensive. Thoroughly recommended, particularly for a special...

We went on a Thursday evening and the restaurant was chock a block. (People were waiting outside for a table). Welcomed by a charming Manager, served by a very knowledgable and attentive waiter, the food was faultless, nothing was too much bother and finished off by the best Irish Coffee! Highly recommend going!

What an amazing restaurant! It is small and cosy with attentive and friendly service. Food was well-presented and very tasty. Good advice given on our wine choice. My only complaint was that it was too dark to take advantage of what must be a lovely view. Highly recommend it.

Thank Acarolyn60

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.
