We only popped in for a quiet pint away from the more busy parts of Lyme Regis, we weren’t disappointed. Good beer and friendly staff. Next time we’ll order food as the menu sounded great. Would recommend and we’ll visit again if we’re in the area.

Having 6 of us and 1 dog, we pre booked our table for a Sunday lunch but found ourselves arriving 40 mins early, the staff were so accommodating and friendly and managed to squeeze us in early right next to the fire which was a bonus. 5 of us had different roasts and I had the chowder, which was delicious and very filling with huge pieces of fish and seafood in, every plate was cleared of food and we cant wait to return for our next meal. Wonderful atmosphere and great staff topped with delicious food and very reasonable prices.

What a fabulous evening.
I’ve eaten twice in this pub in the last year and both times the food has been amazing. Last night the seafood chowder was sublime ! It’s a fantastic pub with great service and the food is extremely good. I’d recommend booking as it’s a small pub and very busy.

What a fantastic pub. Friendly staff, delicious food great atmosphere. This is my fifth time in Lyme Regis, and I think the first time to this pub. My other half tells me I was here 10 years ago for a drink but I don't recall that. Unfortunately, this is the second night of a 2 day holiday so I'm not going to have an immediate opportunity to have more delicious food. Will definitely be returning.
