Booked for Sunday lunch, choice of roast beef or belly pork Scrumptious meal, with lovely veg. I would have scored it higher if the meal was a tad warmer. Service was charming, and the peanut butter pudding as described in the reviews, fab u lous We will definitely return

Booked a table on line, immediate reply by email confirming table and checking on any special requests. Lovely venue, staff so friendly and polite. Great selection of food, which was excellent. Very accommodating when we asked for changes to their menu. Beautiful setting near the mill.

Went with a friend and I had the Dorset neck of lamb fillet and she had the belly of pork. Both meals were excellent. To finish she had sticky toffee pudding and I had a rum pannacotta with raisin purée - both delicious. We would highly recommend this little gem

Lyme Regis has its fair share of duff places to eat, as well as some very pricey ones. The Millside is neither duff nor ferociously expensive; we had an excellent dinner there, including pork belly and accompanying vegetables that were cooked to perfection. We'd booked on spec without checking on Trip Advisor, and found the whole experience better than we... More

Excellent food, very friendly staff, relaxed setting -- it doesn't get much better than this! Run by a husband & wife team, the menu is varied and innovative, but on the expensive side. Advisable to book for dinner, especially at weekends

Even though a Wedding Breakfast was booked in the main restaurant we were fine in the Brasserie area. Food excellent and service very attentive even though the wedding dinner was ongoing. Neck of Lamb was extremely tender and... More

The welcome here is great and we had a lovely evening, however the food was no more than average and really quite expensive. My gurnard came with salsa verde but my garlic mash was swimming in the oil from it. My husbands pork belly wasn't very tender. The desserts were quite nice, especially the peanut brittle parfait.

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
