Lyme Regis and Charmouth Food & Drink

Lyme Regis is blessed with some excellent dining from the little treasure that is Poco Pizza to the superb Asian menus at Red Panda and Largigi. Celebrity chef Mark Hix can be found at his deservedly popular Oyster & Fish House while the Millside Restaurant accentuates its stunning location with deliciously homely cooking.

A similar blend of great scenery and food to match can be found at Alexandra, which overlooks the internationally famous Cobb where arguably the pick of the many good places to eat is the dog-friendly Harbour Inn with its long held good name for quality seafood.

The quirky vintage decoration and tasty treats on offer at Penny Black café make it a special find tucked away behind the Post Office; while the highly rated Tierra Kitchen organic vegetarian restaurant has been winning over all comers (including carnivores) with the quality and flavours of its food.

The Bank House at Charmouth is a charming café with a varied menu that includes great soups and Sunday roasts as well as some fine cakes and both the George and the Royal Oak are well known locally for their hearty pub food, warm welcome and friendly atmosphere.

Just along the coast there’s just as much, if not more, to get excited about at the award-winning Anchor Inn in Seatown. Over the last year the beachside pub has picked up a slew of national plaudits for its food created by wild food and foraging aficionado Jean Paul De Ronne, who trained with Masterchef winner Mat Follas.

In nearby Chideock are the 16th century thatched Clockhouse Inn and the George Inn where a highlight of the excellent largely locally-sourced menu is Thursday’s popular pizza night. An unexpected delight and nowhere near as incongruous as it sounds, Hell Barn serves beautiful Japanese cuisine in a farmhouse setting.

But if you want an eating experience unlike any other – every June the Bottle Inn at Marshwood hosts the World Nettle Eating Championships to bring a whole new meaning to ‘eat your greens’!
