Full description


Ocean View Restaurant must occupy one of Lyme's best trading locations -a prominent site on the seafront, just a few metres from the beach and close to the famous Cobb Harbour. The town centre is only a short level walk away and to the rear are the much admired Langmoor and Lister public gardens.

The premises have been comprehensively refurbished in recent years including internal alterations to provide a most attractive restaurant area which takes full advantage of the seafront situation as 2 sets of folding glazed doors open into the outside seating area (covered by a sail awning).

The kitchen has been comprehensively re-equipped and can readily cope with the high volume of business enjoyed in peak periods.

This is a family run business and at present the restaurant has a turnover for the year ending 31.01.16 £511,000 (inc VAT). It is licenced and the menu includes breakfasts, morning coffee and cake, lunches, afternoon teas and evening meals. There is an emphasis on fresh, locally produced food, especially fish.

In addition to the busy main holiday season and school/bank holidays there are an increasing number of visitors (especially at weekends) throughout the year.

Lyme Regis is an historic coastal town noted for its many character buildings, century's old Cobb Harbour and unspoilt surrounding countryside.

The town centre provides good shopping facilities for day to day needs and the larger centres of Taunton and Exeter are both about 28 miles away. There is a main line railway station at Axminster (6 miles inland). In Lyme Regis there is also a sailing club, bowls, golf course, theatre, cinema and numerous local societies.

The town is situated on the beautiful and unspoilt Devon and Dorset 'Jurassic Coast' awarded World Heritage Site status by UNESCO in December 2001.
