The Oyster & Fish House, Lyme Regis
Mark Hix serves up fresh, local fish and seafood with a side order of the panoramic view of Lyme's iconic Cobb and the Jurassic Coast
Mark Hix has nabbed one of Lyme’s most spectacular spots for his Oyster & Fish House. Perched up on the hillside overlooking The Cobb and Jurassic Coast beyond, the views really are fab-u-lous (and so is the food).
Take a seat in the super relaxed, light and airy dining room with floor-to-ceiling windows looking out over the sea, on the wraparound terrace and new decking.
This place does what it says on the can: locally landed fish and seafood on menus which change twice a day depending on the catch. Starters might include Flodge smoked salmon ‘Hix cure’ (cured and smoked by Mark at his Charmouth home) and Korean fried monkfish cheeks; mains grilled Lyme Bay lobster with garlic butter and Thornback ray with capers, lemon and parsley alongside simply grilled fish on the bone and moreish puds. Vegetarian and kids’ menus too.
Want to buy fish and seafood to cook up yourself? Look out for Mark’s fish truck, a converted Chevrolet ambulance, outside Felicity’s Farm Shop in Morcombelake DT6 6DJ, every Friday and Saturday from 9am till 12pm (but always check on their Facebook page beforehand as timings can change in case of bad weather).
