I have eaten here three times since the new owners took over. Always a warm welcome. An appealing menu and well presented delicious food. The Millside is now my favourite place to eat in Lyme Regis.

Absolutely fantastic Sunday Lunch. We had a late booking 2.30 and the beef had ended but we were offered a combo of both chicken and pork which was perfectly cooked and presented. Delightful staff as well. Will definitely be back 👍
