Clive and Lucy have established a wonderful environment for breakfast or luncheon. Superb bakery and constant temptation to buy bread or cakes to take home.

We have been visiting the town mill bakery for breakfast for a number of years but have not been for a number of months. We so looked forward to the huge chocolate croissants, boiled eggs & sourdough toast in a working style bakery environment... Oh how disappointed were we today to find it no longer has the feel of a... More

We love this place. Couldn't get a table when at Lyme last year but went early this year and got the whole family of nine in. Cross between self service and restaurant. Food is special. Soup served in bread bowl was fab. Such friendly people run it as well. Can't recommend it enough. By the way; the chocolate brownie is... More

Now it looks a bit tired and grubby. No bread for sale and no jam or their excellent peanut butter for sale.. It was not... More

We frequently visit Lyme Regis and always looked forward to the Town Bakery. Sadly we are not likely to return. The bakery has changed hands and lost its attention to detail. We shared a large piece of delicious carrot cake-not sure if this is home made. (They no longer do scones which is dissapointing). However while consuming the cake I... More

What has happened?! We have been coming to this bakery for years, in the last 6months things have changed, it's such a shame... Portion sizes have shrunk and costs have gone up! We have tried Breakfast (pastries have halved in size) and Lunch you used to serve yourselves is now served to you and very small! It's such a shame... More

I have used the "Town Mill Bakery" since its inception and I am a very sad person. Can someone explain what the British obsession is with ruining things that have been great? The bakery used to be the "Bread equivalent of Wagamamas" A communal breakfasting/eating experience which was second to none. I cannot exaggerate enough how many people I have... More

We were recommended to go here for breakfast (no chance we would have found it on our own!) and let's get something clear - food is great. We had almost all of it and it was really tasty and fresh. Eggy Stacks went down very well. However...the ambience isn't going to suit everyone as you're sitting at long benches under... More

Went to both the Lyme Regis shop and the Rousdon shop. LR - I can handle the cobwebs hanging fro the plastic sheet roof, and having to write your own drinks order on a bit of paper, but watching some kid lick his knife then plunge it into the communal jam bowl was a bit much... The Rousdon shop less... More
