Perched on the hillside offering panoramic views of The Cobb and Jurassic Coast, The Oyster & Fish House is arguably the most picturesque spot in Dorset to enjoy locally sourced fish and seafood. A large terrace wraps around the informal, light and airy dining room offering the perfect al fresco experience with unrivalled views of the coastline.

We support our local fishermen, so you may often see them bringing their catch up to the restaurant. In addition to a selection of snacks and starters, you can expect simply grilled fish on the bone, and of course, the delicious Dorset oysters and shellfish we have on our doorstep. The menu can change twice a day depending on what the fishermen bring to us. Please note we do not serve meat dishes, but we do have vegetarian, vegan and kids menus available.

Large tables are welcomed, and for bookings of 16 or more (including book outs) we ask for you to choose one of our seasonal feasts - designed to share.

    A nice fish snd seafood featuring lots of local produce. The fish is properly cooked and tasty. Only two problems: 1) the kitchen seems understaffed and the food takes an excruciatingly long time to arrive 2) the mixed fish for two is disappointingly small. They really should add a bit more to the plate. The views are fantastic and the ambience is good.

    We had heard wonderful things about this place, and the reviews were all true. Gorgeous view of the sea and Lyme Regis Harbor, lovely service and delicious seafood. We enjoyed our meal so much we came back for dinner the next night.

    Excellent fish cookery but a somewhat limited menu. Very welcoming attentive friendly service. Our waitress (Evelyn ?) was particularly good. Table a little small for the food.

    After a first visit that left us disappointed we thought we'd give the place a second chance. Bolstered by a new sample menu dated after out last visit we were hoping for more than the previous visits offerings. Up arrival it pretty much the same menu as last time and nothing like the sample menu. The menu, a tonic 6 months past it's best before date and a hair in a drinks glassleft us generally underwhelmed. The place neither lives up to Mark's name or the price tag.

    Fabulous evening. First class food and very helpful, happy staff. Would highly recommend. Can’t wait for our next visit. Bell was our main waitress for the evening and she was just wonderful. So helpful towards our 12yr old son who was trying oysters and lobster for the first time and she even took him down to the kitchens to meet the chefs. What a wonderful place in every way.
