Quirky and eclectic

If you want to try somewhere different for a drink or snack then this is the place to go. Completely different from most places. Sit on benches right in the bakery and watch it all being baked. Lovely pastries, toast you make yourself and with vats of butter and jam on each table. A great... read more

Went here for lunch, but won't be returning. Food was average, if a little expensive. However, it was the surly, indifferent attitude of the staff that left a sour taste. They clearly don't like working there, so why not make them and any remaining customers happy by replacing them?

Freshly baked pastries and loaves of bread are laid out nicely. Cozy atmosphere, friendly prompt service, and very delicious coffee!

Had a couple of lunches here recently. The staff were generally inattentive but, if approached and talked to, turned out to be nice young people. The food we had included excellent cheeseburger and veg roll or soup, all beautifully cooked and presented. The rectangular wood flats they serve on make it well nigh impossible to avoid losing a good proportion... More

Came to Lyme Regis last year and discovered the bakery - loved the informal help yourself breakfast, writing our names on our boiling eggs and delicious pastries. Friendly staff and sharing tables with strangers - great concept and great baking. Came back this year and returned for a pain au chocolat

Having read many of the recent reviews I'm rather puzzled. We had lunch there today and I really enjoyed it. Lovely atmosphere, happy service and lovely food. I hope whatever problems they have been having in the past month or so are over because based on my experience today I would recommend the place to friends happily.

We used to frequently visited the town mill bakery in Lyme Regis, after a short break due to moving away we were eager to go back. However I can safely say we will not be returning again. I have discovered that town mill has changed hands and can assure you it is for the worse. We were met by rude... More

I suppose some people aren't bothered if the staff don't seem to care that a customer has just come in and even when you approach them they don't seem to be able to smile, say hello or greet you at all. It wasn't just us. While we were there another customer, the only other customer, sat for at least five... More

We have been going to the Town Mill Bakery for several years and have seen a gradual decline in the food and service. What was once a quaint concept with wholesome good food, has now become such poor value and quality for the prices charged. The lunches are all priced at £7 which is rather exorbitant for a bowl of... More
