Really enjoyed our visit to Toms. Great service and good. We don’t live in the area, but if we did, I suspect we’d be back next week!

I so want to love this place, they have a lot right but we had soggy chips and the fish of the day did not look appealing being over cooked.
At £61.00 for two fish and chips two glasses of wine and a cappuccino value
was poor.

Great service, fresh seafood with good variety of fish.
Good heaters and shelter given we had to dine outside, but still was very pleasant despite being freezing.
Highly recommend the crab Bisque

This place is wonderful. The food is awesome. I had the seafood bisque, followed by breaded catch of the day. Both were delicious. Sat outside with a view to die for. Despite it being chilly! Love it. Quality of food on a par with Hix.

Great location and food served promptly. Main course was a little rich for my taste - caponata just a bit too much oil but cod was great and scollops starter was fab. Friendly staff. Will return

The food and service is good and we will return , however not good to eat your food on a slope , full sun protected by a canvas was not good as sat in the shade which made the experience cold whilst eating , I understand it's challenging for the restaurant under covid ,,, but eating dinner on a sunny day in April we need the rays

Visited on the first Friday evening after latest round of restrictions lifted. A cold-ish night for eating outside- table at 8.30. Expected to get a bit chilly and uncomfortable. But... it was brilliant! The guys moved extra heaters near us as other tables cleared, and made a fuss as it was our friend’s birthday. It was so lovely to actually be out, together, and to be cooked for. Food was wonderful- we all had fish/lobster, which was so fresh. Amazing chips and treacle tart was to die for too! We felt really taken care of. Highly recommend.

Service was a bit patchy. We arrived as 2 couples separately for our table for 4. Rather than bringing out all 4 water glasses and waiting to serve rolls they only brought 2 and served one set of rolls immediately. It then took several attempts to get this righted. Food was super as ever. Spanish white wine was very good but a single glass of red wine was rather cool making it a bit indifferent. Took quite an effort to get the pudding menu. Just needs a bit more practice to make the service smoother.

A really good addition to Lyme’s burgeoning restaurant scene. There’s a lovely atmosphere, great service, and it’s nice to have the pass in full view. The mainly fish menu is a delight and I must give a shout out to the Halibut which was fantastic. Only slight criticism is that the type in the drinks menu is a little too small to see in the subdued evening lighting!
