SINCE taking over The Millside restaurant in Lyme Regis in late 2019, John and Georgina Baker have built up an outstanding reputation for stand-out food and professional and friendly service.

Despite the challenges of the pandemic over the past two years, The Millside has quickly become one of the hottest places to visit in Lyme’s growing foodie scene.

Now the restaurant’s success  has been formally recognised, as it has just been awarded two AA Rosettes. 

The AA’s long-established Rosette scheme celebrates successful cooking at different levels across the UK. Two rosettes are awarded for excellent restaurants that aim for and achieve higher standards and better consistency – greater precision is apparent in the cooking, and there will be obvious attention to the selection of quality ingredients.

Announcing the news on social media, John and Georgina said they could not be more proud of their small and dedicated team at The Millside. 

“”This is for you all, for every day you work so hard to bring the life and soul into this place, you deserve every minute of this joyful news. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,” they said.

The couple also thanked their suppliers and the Lyme Regis community for its support. 

The team has set out to create an easy-going, predominantly seafood and fish restaurant, with meat, vegan and vegetarian options on a locally-sourced, seasonal menu.

The restaurant recently launched its new spring menu, featuring an innovative ‘Ham, Egg & Chips’ starter of Dorset apple syrup glazed ham, fried quails egg and Cornish new potato crisps, and main courses such as marinated West Country lamb cutlets with soft Somerset goats cheese mousse, walnut crumb, figs with Dorset honey and orange reduction. 

Millside favourites also feature, including half or whole Devon lobster and its impressive fruits de mer sharing platter.
