At just the start of a potentially great hot summer such a shame that we find that the landlord of The Shipyard chose to close down this excellent addition to Lymington eateries. The fish menu was always first class and fresh. The wine list delicious...More

Very disappointed to have been able to book a table for dinner online only to discover it closed when we arrived at 19:30 (Tuesday 29.05.18).This restaurant needs to update its signs outside and online to let customers know their opening days and hours

Wow, what a find. Fresh fish cooked with minimal fuss at low price. Views of the boat yard and a relaxed atmosphere. Not to be missed.

It does look very much like the offices of the boatyard company but once inside the food was excellent. Beautifully cooked and fresh and served by friendly and well informed staff. Worth the short walk from the harbour.

We ate at the shipyard based on the recommendations of friends. Our expectations for a good meal were therefore high. Unfortunately, the new restaurant reservation system hadn’t recorded our reservation (despite the fact we had rang two days before to confirm) but, on a Saturday...More
