Great lunchtime stop off after some fossil hunting on the beach. Good selection of food options, children’s menu, teas and coffee. Lovely friendly staff, couldn’t do enough to help. Highly recommend the jacket spuds!

We drove to Lyme Regis from Yeovil this morning (New Year's Day) to have breakfast somewhere, then a walk. My vegetarian cooked breakfast was delicious. The staff are always so friendly and welcoming and their service is excellent.

We were welcomed, the staff were friendly and checked that we were warm enough as it was freezing outside. The food was cooked to order and very good value for the money. Nice atmosphere and we were not hurried

Walked into Lyme Regis saw a bill board saying dog friendly and Gluten Free sealed it for us. The staff were very friendly and the food was great so not more you could ask for.

It was nice to be able to go into a small restaurant and have such a variety of gluten free options. I chose a brie and bacon toastie - not something you can normally get as gluten free, it came with a small salad and...More
