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.

Atmosphere affected by numbers of tables. Beyond ‘intimate’. Too closely packed.
Lovely food and attentive service. Thank you.
Great restaurant with superb food
We all really enjoyed our meals. The food was fresh, beautifully cooked and well presented. Excellent service. Thank you for a very pleasant evening.
A lovely restaurant with a good choice of fish on the menu. Cooked to perfection and the early dining deal makes it incredible value. We had a lovely evening meal and with the cinema next door, a great night out ! If we lived nearby we would be regulars, but only visiting the area .
We are huge fans. It's a privilege to eat in your restaurant.
Had a great meal, we enjoyed the food
This was our first visit to Neil,s and from walking through the door the reception we got was, warm,friendly and informative. The food was delicious my wife couldn’t stop praising the Prawn Bisque. Neil,s is a must when we next return to Sidmouth
Delicious food - fresh and well-prepared. This is honest, down-to-earth grub - nothing trendy here. Personally I find the side dishes of only potatoes and vegetables a little disappointing, but otherwise our meal was excellent. In any case I had the sea bass with risotto so really didn’t need another carbohydrate. Risotto amazing by the way and the sea bass possibly the best I’ve had. Mackerel starter was also very good. Neil’s is friendly and welcoming- great staff who were polite and very attentive. Decor is a little dated - cheap tables and chairs, and cutlery - so the ambience is more cafe than restaurant. Toilets could be nicer. However, otherwise for food, choice of wine and drinks, and service absolutely great and would definitely return.
I don't think there can be any greater accolade to a restaurant than when a customer books for the following evening as soon as they have finished their first meal in a restaurant. That's what we did. Thank you for helping us both celebrate our birthdays in such a memorable way. We will return if we're ever in the area again.
Amazing food and service , what more could we ask for, even made the birthday cake which was delicious . Such lovely caring people thank you so much Neil’s restaurant .
Neil’s must be the jewel in Sidmouth’s crown. The place was packed, the service was impeccable yet friendly, the menu was very tempting and the food absolutely delicious - freshly caught and cooked and beautifully presented. A memorable meal, thank you, Neil’s.
Excellent fish dishes,perfectly cooked, highly recommend
Wonderful food and personable welcoming service, cannot recommend highly enough.
We had another wonderful meal at Neil’s. The duck and tempura starters are highly recommended. The lobster Thermidor was delicious. We are never disappointed with this restaurant.
Excellent meal at what is probably the best restaurant we have visited in the Sidmouth area.
Fantastic meal, service and atmosphere. Can’t wait to go again.
Enjoyable first visit. Great that you now publish the daily menu on your web page. Very pleased with the variety on the menu and served fresh and hot. Good house Merlot. Friendly and attentive service. Fantastic deal for early dining. Excellent all round
3rd visit to Neil's and again the food and service were superb. This time we were with our 2 kids both under 10 and they were treated brilliantly. Can't fault it, will return next time we are in Sidmouth. Definitely the best resturant in the area.
Always great food,great service,great atmosphere!Enough said,will be back in October!Cheers!AndyG & ShirleyS!

Our favourite restaurant when visiting Sidmouth. We have recommended Neil's to numerous people over the years we have been visiting.
Neil's has become our favourite place to eat whenever we are staying in Sidmouth. The fish options are always beautifully fresh and the restaurant has an atmosphere of lots of happy diners!
Excellent in every way as usual Thank you Neil and all staff for making our evening So very enjoyable
A lovely little restaurant serving excellent fish and shellfish. The staff were very pleasant and most accommodating when I needed to alter my booking.
