A very pleasant experience for a large pub serving so much food. We were looking for a dog friendly pub on Mother's day to eat at after a walk around Lyme Regis. Booking a table was efficient and met with an equally efficient welcome on arrival. Massive menu and the food was quickly served and huge portions. Beer was Palmers and as good as I have come to expect from these parts.

All in all a great experience for a tourist.

A large pub in a prominent position at the end of the Cobb, this can’t help but attract a large number of visitors simply because of it’s location, although there looks to be fairly limited outside seating.

It’s a good sized, U-shape pub with wood flooring which is clearly trying to orientate itself very much towards food rather than wet sales – on a recent visit we found every table in the main bar to be laid up for food, even a very low coffee table by some sofa’s which would have been very uncomfortable to try and eat at. Next to these was an old brick fire-place and there were a couple of plasmas around the place, although these were just showing notices about the pub, e.g.; food served all day and accommodation offered. In a concession to anyone who didn’t want to eat there was at least a pool table in the lower part of the bar. Decor wise, there was a rather vibrant turquoise paintwork on the upper part of the walls with a straw type matting lower down.

Food menu was extensive and was divided in to sections such as baguettes, sandwiches, jackets, etc., with most of the main course options being around the £9 - £10 mark. A board above the fire-place advertised morning coffee and muffins. Service at the bar was poor with nobody there for several minutes, and I was ignored by a couple of staff on their way to or from the kitchen – even a “be with you in a minute” would have been better than no acknowledgement at all. Eventually a barmaid turned up and went straight over to serve a punter who had just arrived - to be fair, she hadn’t walked past before so probably didn’t know that, and she was apologetic when I pointed it out. But she could have asked, and if the other punter had any manners he would have said something.

Beers on tap were all from Palmer’s with their Dorset Gold, 200, Copper Ale and Best Bitter. The solitary cider was Thatcher’s Gold.

Basic seaside pub - good in season but better out of season when all the tourists have gone. Staff friendly and efficient, food OK but basic, beers kept well but limited range and they're Palmers - the 200 and Copper Ale were OK. Just above average but less so in summer.
