There's no public parking at the Mill so we parked Woodmead Car Park (DT7 3PG). To get to the mill from the car park we walked along the terrace (Coombe St) between the River Lym and the leat which feeds the mill. This is a nice and interesting approach to the mill. The mill admission is very reasonable. The tour is guided and starts at the top of the mill and works it's way downwards. The operational mill with all its machinery and operations are demonstrated and explained. You can see how the flour is made and take some back with you from the shop. We (inc 2 small children) found it really interesting and enjoyable.

There's also a shop, micro brewery, cafe and cheese shop.... we were short on time so we only tried the cafe. We found the cafe to be really nice and the owner very helpful and we'd highly recommend.

We only called in for a coffee but found ourselves in the middle of the breakfast sitting - a huge help yourself array of breads, cakes, patisserie and coffee accompanied by jams and butter and eggs. Well worth a visit if only for the very friendly service and great space.

Interesting insight into the old Town Mill. See how your flour was made and take some back with you. Also visit the cheese shop. The adjoining garden walk by the river is also very enjoyable.

We had a full tour of the Mill by the attending miller. She showed us all the workings of the mill and then ground some wheat grains, made the flour and bagged it for the shop - we bought some! The miller was also very knowledgeable not only about the workings but also the history of the various parts of the building and machinery. We had a personal tour just before closing and were really delighted we'd managed to fit it in.

We visited the town mill whilst on holiday last year but never got around to eating there...what a mistake! We loved it so much we went back a second time! The food is wonderful and such good value for money but the best aspect has to be the staff. Very friendly, very bubbly and very efficient! If we're ever in Lyme Regis again, we will definitely be going back!
