Perfect place to sit in the sun after walking with the dogs along the beach from Charmouth. We could see where we had walked, the hot chocolate with whipped cream was brilliant, the bowl of water for the dogs gratefully received!

Everything we had for breakfast was deep fried or out the microwave. Waitress was nice, the food was not.

Our party of 4 called in for a lunch time snack, the staff were very friendly, and the food extremely good, we were allowed to mix and match various items off the menu., where possible. An extremely nice snack at reasonable prices, we will definitely call again at our next trip to the area.

We have had many trips to Lyme over the years. This visit we decided to check out the tea rooms. All I can say is I am sorry we waited so long to go there. Our 2 dogs were welcome inside and the staff were very friendly, even asking if we would like some water for the dogs. We had... More

Nice location and very clean loos. Jacket potato was microwaved and very scrimpy on the prawn and Marie Rose filling. The Brie, walnut and cranberry sandwiches were nice (although a little heavy on the marg). We had drunk 3 rounds of tea before our food came out which was a shame.
