19.10.16. Didn't book but liked the look of the place and the menu displayed outside. We were made very welcome and the food, locally sourced, was delicious. It didn't take long for the restaurant to start filling up, which always seems a good sign, and appeared to be used by locals as much as visitors to Lyme. We both had... More

Lovely place. We visited in October so less busy but food was fabulous. Would covert the 2 seat table right by the mill outside in summer. Lovely setting, friendly staff. Great....

We had lunch here on the last day of our holiday. The staff were very pleasant and the food was very good indeed. Admittedly we only experienced two starters and two puddings, but they were lovely: beetroot soup and smoked duck with watercress. Then I chose the panna cotta which was truly delicious. On that experience we will go again... More

Choose this restaurant based on previous reviews. Went on a Saturday night and the restaurant had a nice bustling ambience. We had 2 of the special cocktails whilst choosing from the menu. The menu is not extensive and my husband found it quite limiting we both had the feta beetroot and fig starter which I enjoyed but my husband found... More

2 superb meals one at the start & one at the end of our holiday. Also ate in Hix & this place is as good, if not better and somewhat less expensive. Highlights - pork belly with crackling & an iced peanut butter parfait with salted caramel and peanut brittle - wonderful, had this on both occasions.

On holiday in Lyme, my friend and I came here for Sunday lunch, what a treat, it was delicious. The meat was perfectly cooked, very tasty and tender, a good selection of fresh vegetables, and a yorkshire pudding to die for and all very reasonably priced. The staff were very friendly and helpful, all in all, a great place for... More

We booked a few days in Lyme Regis not realising that by early October most restaurants are shut Monday - Wednesday, but luckily The Millside could fit us in on the day. We booked an early dinner, and were offered a table in the restaurant, but when we arrived we decided that the decor in the bistro was more to... More

Came here at the recommendation of a friend who comes to Lyme Regis a lot. This restaurant has a lot of atmosphere and was lovely. I can imagine it's great in the summer say outside too. The staff were friendly and service was good. I'd say the food was 7.5/10. The selection of desserts wasn't that appealing to my tastes... More

Beautiful fish and chips in lovely quiet area in Lyme away from the crowds. Service was good with welcoming staff and an interesting menu. The food was well presented and reasonably priced. Will be back again

12 of us enjoyed a fabulous evening at the Millside restaurant. The food was fresh and tasty and we particularly enjoyed the scallops, smoked duck and gurnard. Would definitely go back.
