We were on a table next to the counter in direct line of the front door where it was cold, busy and noisy as the waitress had to use brute force to operate the coffee machine. The service was mediocre & menu had upmarket pretensions...More

The thing that stands out here is the service. We saw only one staff member all evening, a charming waitress who was totally on top of things and gave a simple meal for four on a weekend away a sense of occasion. Some of the...More

A classy restaurant with a fantastic wine list as well as an interesting Gin and Tonic menu. Service was superb, friendly and professional and the food was really good but the menus were a little limited, especially for non meat-eaters.

Wonderful service; attentive, friendly staff. Made a big occasion of my Mum's birthday with well-positioned table, birthday banner, candle in her dessert and chorus of happy birthday! Superb food and good wine list and drinks options. Good value and quality

Important to book at this one, as it is deservedly popular. I booked a few days before and was lucky to get the last available table. We had a superb meal with efficient, friendly service. As well as a wine list, a range of gins...More

Had an excellent meal for two here on the penultimate night of our stay in Lyme Regis. Found the food to be really special, friendly staff, and nice ambiance. It was so good that we went back the next day for lunch.
