I visited the Oak Room with my sister last night for a dinner dance. The Oak Room is her restaurant of choice and I can see why. We enjoyed a fabulous three-course meal, all served by attentive staff who even poured the wine at our...More

Was a windy stormy night and our restaurant of choice was closed. So we thought we’d go to one of the bigger hotel in Lyme Regis. All food was clearly just a re-heat out of a packet. The suet pudding was nothing special and as...More

Looking for a Saturday night meal in Lyme, we found that not reserving had ruled out all the best options. However, the “Saturday evening menu” posted outside this establishment looked appealing, so in we went. After being ignored at the bar for several minutes we...More

About
Description
At the heart of the idyllic town of Lyme Regis, 'the Pearl of Dorset', is the Royal Lion Hotel, a stunning haven located in the middle of the High Street, with its own private car park. Lyme Regis is a picturesque More town on the West Dorset border, part of the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage site. Steeped in history, it is renowned for its fascinating past, mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, the unique fossils found in the cliffs and beaches, and for being the central location of the novel and the 1981 film, 'The French Lieutenant's Woman'. Situated less than 100 metres from the sea, the Royal Lion Hotel is a perfect base from which to explore the locale. Built in 1601 as a coaching inn, the Hotel has been extensively refurbished, yet still retains much of its history and unique charm. Oak beams, wood panelling and open fires help to create a warm, welcoming and comfortable atmosphere, with new additions of its own swimming pool and other facilities. Wi-Fi, although not available in the bedrooms, is available to guests in several areas of the hotel. Privately owned and managed, the Royal Lion Hotel has gained an enviable reputation for its friendly service, world class food and wine and leisure offerings. Less
