Great place to stop for a pint and a bite. Looking right out at the beautiful Cobb beach area. Small outdoor terrace at the front. Worth a visit.

Visiting Lyme Regis by yacht and looking for an evening meal, the harbour inn is close to the Cobb, welcomed me as an uncooked single and did great seafood in a relaxed atmosphere

Having had a lovely bouillabaisse here a few years ago, was looking forward to it again. However, the price had dramatically increased (to £16.70!) but from memory it was lovely and well worth it...or so we thought. Not only had the taste changed (a very simple tomato sauce which was actually quite sharp and acidic, no 'fish broth' flavour) the... More

What a great place to feel comfortable, eating delicious fresh seafood, served by delightful friendly staff amongst a mixture of tourists and locals. Best of all they were dog friendly. We will look forward to a return with big smiles on our faces.

The Harbour Inn serves very good ribeye steaks, judging from our recent visit. Service was good and it's not over expensive. It's handily placed for the beach and I would recommend it for well presented, standard food. Not outstanding but very good.

The menu looked really good from the outside and there was a nice atmosphere in the pub to. The staff wear pleasent and the service was good. However, the Beer Battererd fish was very plain with alot of batter to hide a small piece of fish. The chipps where also very plain and reminded me, of really cheap frozen chips.... More

One of many places to eat on the beach-side at the Cobb at Lyme Regis. There are some picnic sets with parasols on the beach in front of the pub and there is also a small covered terrace overlooking the beach. Inside there is lots of seating. By booking ahead we got a nice window table over-looking the beach. There... More

We stopped one lunch for a quick lunch. The food was excellent, from the fish pie to the bouillabaisse, and the service efficient. The atmosphere is a really plus to the place, and it's dog friendly, which is really nice. In fact a really good place to have a great meal with great drinks and great atmosphere.

Well-situated and stylish venue; we were lucky enough to get a table on the verandah at the front, overlooking the beach...a great spot for people watching. Service could have been a little better but food was very good...we had sandwiches....one crab and one rare beef, both very well-presented and very tasty; and a glass of chilled white wine. Pretty good... More
