Discover Restaurants offering the best British food in Lyme Regis, England, United Kingdom. Lyme Regis /ˌlaɪmˈriːdʒɪs/ is a town in West Dorset, England, 25 miles (40 km) west of Dorchester and 25 miles (40 km) east of Exeter. It lies at Lyme Bay on the English Channel coast at the Dorset–Devon border. It is nicknamed "The Pearl of Dorset". It is noted for fossils found in cliffs and beaches that are part of the Heritage Coast—known commercially as the Jurassic Coast—a World Heritage Site. The harbour wall known as "The Cobb" appears in Jane Austen's novel Persuasion, in the John Fowles novel The French Lieutenant's Woman, and in the 1981 film of the same name, which was partly shot in Lyme Regis. Its one-time mayor and MP was Admiral Sir George Somers, who founded the English colonial settlement of the Somers Isles, now known as Bermuda. Lyme Regis is twinned with St George's, Bermuda. In July 2015 Lyme Regis also became "tripled" with Jamestown, Virginia, as the Historic Atlantic Triangle of Lyme, St George's and Jamestown. The 2011 Census gave the parish and electoral ward a population of 3,671.

Set at the edge of the beach in the beautiful and historic coastal town of Lyme Regis, the Pilot Boat has just been relaunched following a nine-month project by Palmers Brewery to rejuvenate the iconic grade II listed building back to life as a lifestyle
Pretty average all round. Service was good enough but the starter poor to be honest, a charcuterie board had a few slices of ham/salami/chorizo from a packet and the main wasn't much better, the seafood platter consisting of smoked salmon (presumably from a packet), some dressed crab meat and some shell on prawns. And a lot of bread. Nothing I couldn't have rustled up in 5 minutes at home with some scissors for the packets and a plate.It was ok, not bad or terrible but I expected a bit better for a Lyme Regis restaurant and wouldn't go back.Kids scampi and chips was good.

We have been coming here infrequently for many years when we have visited Lyme Regis. Today we stopped by for both breakfast and afternoon cream tea. Both were excellent. Service is very friendly and efficient. We will definitely be coming here again during our short stay. Dogs are very welcome too.

Having popped into Lyme on an unseasonly but typically Lyme sunny Autumn Sunday morning, we were debating where to try for lunch. Not easy on a busy day like that, but they fitted the three of us into the restaurant area. It is many years since we were last at the Millside, but the cosy inside area and friendly staff meant we quickly settled.On the face of it, a traditional Sunday lunch menu, but on reading more one finds the veg are sourced where possible from a local organic farm, the meat is supplied by a free range specialist butcher, and the fish is local Lyme Bay catch of the day. We are not fans of carvery type food so Iâm pleased to report this is definitely far removed from mass Sunday catering.Everything was beautifully cooked, and we had a large bowl of different veg to accompany the ample serving of deliciously crispy roast potatoes. With a varied wine list, a selection of local gins, plus premium soft drinks at reasonable prices, we left satiated and without too big a hole in my wallet.This is not a pretentious restaurant. It appears to be staying honest to traditional fayre cooked well with quality ingredients. A recipe for happy diners Iâd suggest and weâll quite likely return when next in the area (but booking in advance!).

Seasonally led, weekly changing set menu. Foraged foods and locally sourced ingredients. Drinks pairing available. Drinks list showcases natural and biodynamic wines, beers and ciders.
Sell the family silver (although given the pricing you won't have to sell much), find a bed for the night, sleep on a friends sofa, camp out, get a B&B but whatever you do, if you like creative small portion fine dining go to this restaurant before they shut for the season. Only open for one sitting starting at 7.30pm, Tues-Thurs for Â£32 you will be treated to the best meal you will ever have at this price level - 6 courses of ever changing exquisitely presented tasting dishes across a huge variety of food types and styles. Fish, vegetables, meat, salads, desserts all served in a charming, very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Harriet is clearly a star in the making and her team offer fantastic support. Fussy this could be but is not, expensive it should be but is not. Add the matched wine option - another bargain given the generous pouring and high quality - and you have the complete night out.

We are a fully licenced family run restaurant. Specializing in homemade gourmet Beef, chicken & Vegetarian burgers We also offer local fish & chips and a full Sunday roast dinner menu. All of our meat & fish is ethically sourced and reared locally, where
Letâs start with the good stuff, the lady who meets and greets you, so friendly and warm and she worked so hard - she was lovely!! The bad, the young waitress who ignored us several times, had a very loud conversation with the chef and then when delivering the food dumped chips on the table and all over my leg. Whoops she said and walked off, no apology or attempt to clean up. The food was ok but to be honest was average - hate giving a bad review but lose the waitress and review the menu, the lady host was the star!I must apologise for the waitress she can be a little bit odd sometimes but does work hard, at this time of year its almost impossible to find good staff in lyme. My mother was pleased with your comments toward her, the menu however its a burger bar we do offer several other options but its a burger bar what is to review.

Visited for tea and cake after a lovely walk to and from Lyme Regis. Beautifully decorated, exceptional homemade cakes, vegan and gluten free options (advised to phone ahead for a wider selection next time, which I thought was really accommodating), superb teas, and a really lovely couple to wait on us. We sat in the garden and enjoyed some visiting pooches. Highly recommended.

Award winning modern restaurant using the best local, seasonal and organic produce in the South West. Suitable for vegetarians and foodies alike.
Came across this whilst walking through Lyme. None of us are vegetarians but it didnât matter a jot. Really nice simple menu which was excellent value for lunchtime. We had the smoked applewood cheese tart which is accompanied by 3 salads of your choice. The beetroot salad which were different varieties was particularly good. Nice little courtyard outside to eat in the September sunshine. Perfect

Vintage inspired cafe serving teas, coffees, homemade lunches, scones, cakes and shakes! Relax with a cold drink in our sun-trap courtyard or sit inside foot tapping to rock'n roll! Our new American Diner bar is perfect for the kids to have their milkshak
Just tea and cake for us, on a sunny afternoon, our first visit, if it had a view I would have given this 10/10 even so the food drinks and staff were all great. And a fabulous price.. wanted to try more but only here for the day.
