Lovely, warm pub with bags of character. Non-touristy too, which is unusual in Lyme Regis. Also a bonus is the food, which is a couple of notches above standard fayre. Big portions and great value as well.

Fantastic cozy old pub! Always friendly with a great mix of young and old. The pub has strong Irish links so the Guiness is the best for miles! You'll lose hours here!

A traditional pub just up the hill from the centre of town, this seems to be a decent boozer with a more traditional feel than many of the nearby options which on the whole seem to be rather down at heel or overly touristy. Only a wet dog smell subtracted slightly from the ambience.

The main bar to the right is a long, carpeted room with the walls being a mixture of exposed stone work and black wood panelling. The ceiling was a mustard colour and had plenty of black beams which were all adorned with blue and white fairly lights. A stone fire-place was on the right and the bar counter was opposite this, clad in what appeared to be some sort of wood effect Formica. A large mirror and a few old black and white pictures of the local area completed the decor and the seating was wooden benches with green cushions and green padded stools. The other bar to the left was an entirely different, contemporary affair with more of a bistro like feel to it. I assume this is for dining, although nobody was in here on a recent visit. The floor here is sanded wood, there is a white-washed brick fire-place with a wood burning stove, pale blue/green wood panelling on the walls and chunky pine tables.

Beers on tap were Adam Henson’s Rare Breed from Butcombe, Tribute and Dartmoor Best. Ciders were Ashton Press, Cornish Rattler, Thatcher’s Dry and Thatcher’s Copper Press which was a new one on me – slightly embarrassing that I have to come all the way to the south coast to find it when I only live about ten miles from the brewery (cidery?).
