Overlooking The Cobb in Lyme Regis, with uninterrupted views of the Jurassic coastline and Lyme Regis fishing port, the food at Hix Oyster & Fish House is as unbeatable as its location.

Keeping things simple, Hix Oyster & Fish House features a small terrace with a wooden bar outside and floor-to-ceiling windows inside, which open out to present diners with great views. There is no question that this is the best spot on the South West Coast to enjoy lobster and chips or a dozen oysters and bottle of champagne whilst gazing out to sea.

Supporting sustainable fishing and cooking only the very best ingredients, the menu offers a carefully selected choice of fresh fish and several meat dishes, whilst the blackboard highlights the oysters of the day. If you would like a little added privacy with your meal, the chef's table is situated downstairs with an open kitchen and bar area, inviting you to watch the chefs at work whilst you eat.

    The fabulous setting, especially on a clear, sunny, summer evening cannot be beaten. The food was good; well-cooked fish and plentiful vegetables. It would have been better if the veggies had arrived at the same time as the mains. Service was efficient, staff were polite. Desserts were delicious.

    The food and service were very good indeed. The prices were reasonable for the high standard of the food

    Service was very good although the restaurant was not busy which did not help the ambience. Food was very good and good value for money. Really enjoyed the complimentary smoked salmon pate which was sufficient as a starter..

    Having dinned at the restaurant before we had high expectations and had taken friends for a special meal out and although the food and service was good there was some thing missing as compared to our first visit.
    We eventually put it down to the lack of attention to detail, the dress of the staff was very casual the way they conducted them selves was ok but it was all a bit jokey.
    The menu had changed considerably and appeared to have been dumb down and we know its the in thing but having the menu as a table mat did not work for us.
    The neon hoopla hoop with stuff seagull does not add anything to the ambience and I think we know we are on the coast.
    We would recommend the restaurant for the food and views.

    The food was good.The service and staff were slow.There were children running around when they should have been sitting and having their meal.It was very distracting.
