We’ve started to put together a list of some of the places that we love to eat at when we’re in Lyme… if you think we’ve made a mistake or missed anywhere fabulous then please do let us know so that we can make sure this page stays as useful and current as possible!

Probably worth mentioning┬áthat Lyme Regis tends to eat fairly early and that places do get booked up at the height of the season. If you wander in to town at 8 o’clock on a summer evening then you’ll probably be limited to an Indian (lovely though Lal Qilla is!).

Swim

29 Marine Parade, Lyme Regis, DT7 3JF

Great for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, coffee or a cocktail! And yes, we’ve tried all of the above (not on the same day!)… we really love it at Swim – the food is great with plenty of adult and kid-friendly options… and the service is always friendly.

Booking recommended, but walk-ins also possible out of peak season: 01297 442668

Town Mill Bakery

3 Riverside Workshops, Coombe Street, DT7 3PY

Call to check opening times: 01297 444754
www.townmillbakery.co.uk

Great atmosphere and friendly service. It’s a working, open bakery serving freshly baked pastries, great coffee – with chefs on hand for made-to-order breakfast/brunch/lunch. Often quite a long queue for breakfasts so worth checking opening times and getting there early. Not possible to reserve.

Poco Pizza

29 Marine Parade, Lyme Regis, DT7 3JF

Reservations: 01297 598591
www.pocopizza.co.uk

Fantastic sourdough pizza with creative toppings – cooked in wood-fired ovens. Eat in if you can… lovely views across Lyme Bay and pizza’s never quite the same out of the box at home! Reservations required (*sometimes up to a week in advance in high season so perhaps give them a call the week before your holiday?).

The Harbour Inn

23 Marine Parade, Lyme Regis, DT7 3JF

Reservations: 01297 442299

Fish restaurant.
What to order: The crab sandwich and the cakes

“The crab sandwich is served in soft, thick-cut granary bread and is consistently fantastic. Homemade soups are also great, and the cakes are soft and gorgeous. This has always been more of a lunch than a dinner place for us…”

Reservations: 01297 442505

Fantastic, fresh Indian. BYO booze.

We book a table at Lal Quilla almost every time we visit Lyme Regis… really fresh Indian food and friendly service. it’s a BYO which means it’s great value and you’re only paying shop prices for a bottle of your favourite wine too!

The Cobb Arms

Marine Parade, Lyme Regis, DT73JF

Reservations: 01297 443242

Family friendly pub and restaurant serving hearty pub food.
What to order: Whatever-you-fancy-and-chips!

The Cobb Arms, right down there amongst the boats, is a great place for a pint or some pub grub. Portions are a good size and the food is fresh and tasty.
