nice old fashioned kind of place! Pleasant waitresses and food pretty good, would recommend the scampi and chips. Scone sadly not so good. Have been here a few times now over the years and it is keeping up its good standards.

We found this little restaurant on our way home to Cornwall. Very welcoming, lovely atmosphere and the most pleasant staff not to mention the simply delicious breakfast. Highly recommend this little gem and would definitely come back when next in Lyme Regis.
