“Not what it used to be...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

Have eaten here regulalry on Dorset visits with the family for the last 5 years and it was great but this time the fried fish was so very greasy that it made you feel unwell. Will be unlikely to return: a shame.

“Grab your fish and chips and eat on the beach!”

Not the best restaurant but have grabbed myself a paper bag of fish & chips and eaten them on the Rockpoint many a time.

“Not bad but expensive for basic fish & chips”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Food is cooked fresh to order, and that is always a nice thing, but it doesn't make as much difference as it should. Chips are crispy (good!) but taste as if oil is a little old, same with fish. As it's not the cheapest around, it makes it poor value - but no worse than others in Lyme. Service a bit brusque but not rude
