I am very surprised by the other review next to this one. Had fish and chips regular from this cafe. I'm very surprised by the common. the food here is always very good and to a high standard. So very shocked to hear about this. Please do not judge this cafe on the previous review try it for yourself and... More

This little cafe on Marine Parade in the picture perfect sea side of Lyme Regis is so convenient to sit and eat overlooking the sensational view, advertising fresh cooked fish and chips we could not resist. How I wish we had! The fish was shaped like a large frozen fish finger and the chips must have been refried so many... More

We use this takeaway most times we are down on Lyme Regis beach. The food is basic but good value. Rolls are made fresh so can't be much better. The pasties are probably the best in town. Overall a great food stop and value

I'd definitely recommend this little restaurant! They serve up freshly cooked fish and chips which are very tasty! They even have a few tables & chairs so if you're lucky you'll be able to enjoy the sea views from the side walk, but be aware lots of people are walking past. Although to be fair it adds to the beach... More

Had a quick tea and coffee here, as always the staff were very friendly. The tea and coffee were served to our table and the coffee far nicer than from other coffee shops in the town.

They do all sorts here from fish and chips to sandwiches to pasties. Good value for money there is limited seating outside on the prom.Helpful and friendly staff. Great views as well.

We had looked for a takeaway chippy, but seemed very overpriced. We were just going to get a cream tea from here (wish we had done that too now I've read the reviews), but saw the fish and chips they were serving and decided to order. When they say made to order they mean it. Order taken (no picking cod,... More
