Located in a quiet, scenic backstreet, The Millside Restaurant is a total gem in Lyme Regis. We were lucky enough to eat here in the depths of winter a few weeks before Christmas and were so pleased with the whole evening. The menu is varied and obviously locally sourced and we started with a bottle of the Lyme Bay sparkling... More

Nice family lunch luckily arrived early so a table wasn't a problem. Good lunch choices and wide range for kids. Staff friendly. Nice decor and lovely location.

We went to the restaurant without booking for Sunday lunch. We found the staff very welcoming and friendly. We ordered the roast lunch which was delicious. The meat was perfectly cooked and we had a good selection of interesting vegetables which again were perfectly cooked and presented. The Restaurant is traditional with white table cloths and the service was excellent.... More

We visited on a Friday night having booked a table for 7:00. We arrived 20 minutes early and were to told that we couldn't order until 7. We were really disappointed with the Long wait for the main course, which took 70 minutes to arrive and when it did the fish pie that I ordered was at best warm. I... More

We booked the restaurant for 8.30pm on a Saturday evening and arrived in good time. We were encouraged to order bread and olives which sounded ominous. There were 5 of us in the group and after a fantastic walk along the cliffs were really looking forward to a good steak. The restaurant looks great and is nicely set out and... More

The Millside has become the best restaurant in Lyme Regis. We've had two family dinners and a lunch in two months. The food is very good, with a mixture of fish and meat. The main meal portions are large (and too much for an 11 year, whereas the kids Sausage and Mash very good and enough for both our 9... More

We made a reservation through top table and all went to plan, including getting a nice window table for a special occasion. Service was friendly and very polite! As for the food. Fantastic, right up along side much more expensive restaurants we have been too. And we are going back there next visit in 2016!

We went here for roast dinner on a Sunday in half term. Two adults and two children (9 and 5yo). The staff were very friendly and the food was extremely good. There were pieces of scrap paper and felt pens for doodling and playing games while were waiting for our food. The roast dinners came with a delicious selection of... More
