The day after the party we all went here to have breakfast. Fantastic The pot of tea was really good. Food is cooked to order so takes at bit longer but worth it.

Every year we come to Lyme Regis we always have our jam and clotted cream scones from this little restaurant which is lovely inside or sitting outside looking out to sea.

We are regular visitors to the tea room with the best view in Lyme from the outside tables. Friendly staff, excellent cream teas and sandwiches.
