Had a very enjoyable lunch on Sunday with family. As we were a large group we booked in advance and pre ordered which worked great. The food was really nice, the staff were friendly and the environment was very pleasant. Everyone had a very nice time and I would highly recommend to everyone.

Sat outside in the sun enjoying wonderful goats cheese and beetroot salad, mackerel Niçoise salad, whilst the kids enjoyed grilled hake and chips. Have a real treat and enjoy a Dorset mule as an aperitif!

I booked this for my boyfriends birthday dinner, we don't live in the area so it had been selected online because of it's location and menu, plus a quick check of trip advisor, to ensure it was good. When we were in town earlier that day we got talking to someone in a shop and when we mentioned where we... More

Quite by chance, we came across this little gem of a restaurant whilst out exploring the back streets of Lyme Regis. We were lucky enough to be able to book a table for the Saturday evening and wow , we were bowled over by the lovely food, staff and atmosphere. I had Hake with triple cooked chips and pureed mint...

Lovely restaurant with interesting menu. We had the hake and the special fish of the day, which was gurnard served with wild garlic pesto - the flavours were fantastic. Desserts also excellent, including Pimms pan a cotta. Service was very friendly. Would highly recommend.

It's a good while since I visited Lyme Regis and I was quite depressed but not surprised to find a myriad of down-market cafes and fish and chip bars on the waterside. We were not hopeful of finding anywhere worth spending my hard-earned cash and came across The Millside by chance. It was 2.23 when we entered and the place... More

Really lovely little place in a lovely location. Nice atmosphere and wonderful food! Away for a weekend staying in the old lyme B&B across the road, this was a fabulous little find. The food really was wonderful! We both had the rump steak which was beautifully cooked.
