First night on holiday in Lyme Regis we decided to go to Lal Qilla for dinner. We have previously been to Lyme, so decided to book a table the day before we arrived.

found a gem of a restaurant, good food, service second to none, all the staff we met were polite and friendly. You have to bring your own drinks but that to me is no hassle.

The owner and the staff are absolutely amazing and attentive. Nothing is too much. The food is sublime, time after time, after time. Thank you so much, from a disillusioned Caterer.
