Hive Beach cafe, Burton Bradstock 01308 897070

Great place for lunch. Set on the beach at Hive, near Burton Bradstock. The Hive Beach company have 3 restaurants stretching along Chesil Beach, the Watch House at West Bay, the Clubhouse at West Bexington and Hive Beach cafe. All serve delicious seafood in great settings.

Millside, Lyme Regis 01297 445999

I have to admit that we haven't eaten here, but some of our guests have highly recommended this restaurant in the middle of Lyme Regis. It has been really popular this Summer so very few places available. Fine dining with a riverside location.

Rachel's Seafood Shack, The Quay, West Bay

Such a popular place it's hard to get a table, just wait or get there early, it is worth it. Fabulous seafood overlooking West Bay harbour, open every day except Tuesdays for lunch, weather permitting as all tables are outside.


Hix Oyster and Fish House, Lyme Regis 01297 446910

Panoramic views over Lyme Regis. Open 6 days a week, closed Mondays. British seafood menu based on catch of the day.
