About Neil's Restaurant
Neil’s is a great place to eat in Sidmouth and is just a short walk from Sidmouth Beach and within easy reach of Beer, Lyme Regis and Exeter. Neil’s focuses on bringing the freshest Devon food, cooked in sympathetic and delicious ways to the table. Neil’s Restaurant Sidmouth has an informal design and allows you to actually see Neil at work.
Why do we change the menu daily?
I know what the days menu will be after the boats have come in and the fish landed. My goal is to use the freshest ingredients that are locally caught and so as the seasons change, so does the catch. After years of selecting ingredients I know what is the best quality and value, so each day I select the freshest and tastiest available. Knowing the fishermen and fish merchants over many years means that I know how the fish are caught and often which boat has landed it. Getting the best flavours means knowing where each ingredient comes from.
E-vouchers are available from our website. Great for those last minute gifts.
More choice of vegetables would be an improvement. Chips not always the best choice even if they are very good chips. However we did notice other diners leaving their veg but eating all the chips! What is one to do!! Rob.
An excellent meal and I shan't hesitate to come back again at the earliest opportunity!
The whole evening was a delight, how you manage to maintain such consistently high standards, only you know, but keep it up.
Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. The atmosphere was lovely - due to it being a small restaurant and lovely staff. The food was amazing - I could have picked a number of dishes which was unusual for me. I had noted in the online booking that I can't eat some nuts and they told me on the night which dishes I shouldn't have.
Nice relaxed atmosphere with friendly helpful staff. Food well priced with an interesting and varied menu choice. Quality of food excellent and an enjoyable dining experience all round.
Visiting Neil's Restaurant is our much-anticipated annual holiday treat, which never disappoints. One small suggestion - it would be nice to have the choice of boiled/ new potatoes with the meal instead of just chips.
Friday night meal at Neil's at the start of Sidmouth Festival has become a regular event! Beautifully cooked fresh fish, (just love the hake with crab and coriander crust), lovely staff, good wine, what more can you ask for? (although a grappa to go with the coffee would be nice, he-he!). Thoroughly recommend Neil's to all fish lovers.
Thoroughly enjoyable beyond all measure...great many thanks (also for the previous Sunday)
We have been to Neil's many times. The service is lovely, food is of the highest standard, care and attention to detail in everything they do is obvious. An absolute gem.
Service was excellent, good choice of wines, menu was very good for fish lovers, very limited if you're not, but you know it's primarily a fish restaurant anyway! Atmosphere was good, it was fairly full by 7.30pm, although it was festival week. Thought the starters were very good and excellent value for money, my wife said it was the freshest fish she'd had in a long time!, main courses were again good but thought a little overpriced. So almost full marks all round.
We were recommended this restaurant by a work colleague and are very glad we took his advice as the food and ambience were excellent.
Our second visit to Neils. It is not local to us and is a stop off on the way back from the SW. This is an excellent fish restaurant. We like the way they serve their food so that you can taste the freshness and all the natural flavours. The food is excellent, The decor is functional.
Such friendly staff and AMAZING food.
Excellently cooked fish served with local wines. One of our favourite restaurants.
Every meal we have had at Neil’s has been excellent. We eat out a lot in a lot of different places and Neil’s is our favourite fish/seafood restaurant. The fish is as fresh and tasty as we get on the Algarve - and that is no small compliment.
Just a beautiful evening spent at this restaurant. Fabulous meal and very efficient service. Lovely friendly staff and a great atmosphere. Really hope to return again soon.
very enjoyable meal for both of us.
When you find a restaurant that knows how to cook, as specially fish 🐠 you know it will be good. Neil I take my hat to you, your food & staff were excellent, I did not want it to end. The plus was you are a Bristol boy & it was lovely to chat with you and shake your hand at the end of the night, see you soon.
It was sweltering!! Admittedly a very hot evening - but no fan near us and we left before dessert because we were so hot.
We had a lovely evening. The staff were helpful and lovely, and the food was fantastic! We will definitely be back soon!
Delicious well cooked food reasonably priced and warm friendly atmosphere
Once again everything at Neil's was perfect . Thank you for looking after my wife's intolerances . We shall return . M & C Palmer
