Visitors to the Marine often ask us for the best place for a meal or to stay. These are our recommendations: the best Lyme Regis has to offer.
HIX Oyster & Fish House
Ticket holders can enjoy 10% off their bill at HIX Oyster & Fish House before or after any show. The Lyme Regis restaurant is run by our patron, Mark Hix.
Perched on the hillside offering panoramic views of the Jurassic Coast, HIX Oyster & Fish House offers a stunning and intimate setting to enjoy locally sourced fish and seafood. A large terrace, ideal for cocktails or al fresco dining in the summer, wraps around the informal, light and airy dining room with floor to ceiling windows. It’s quite simply the most picturesque spot in Dorset—apart from the Marine.
The menus are built around the long-established, personal relationships that Mark Hix has with local suppliers and use only responsibly produced, carefully sourced and simply served British seasonal ingredients.
- Maximum table of 4
- Not to be used in conjunction with any other offer
- Open 12-10pm every day.

This is a Tudor townhouse with a colourful past. It’s all here: The Duke of Monmouth, Oscar Wilde, and a box of love letters found after WWII American soldiers stayed.
Tony and Alex have loved discovering the history and bringing this old house back to life. They’re a creative, immensely likeable pair and their vintage finds from French trips abound. Bedrooms are romantic with lavender-scented drawers, tea trays, perhaps an antique gilt mirror, Liberty wallpaper or flame-pink cushion. There’s a summery breakfast room, wood fires burning bright all winter and orchids in every corner.
