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.
Food is nice but very expensive for what it is. Staff really nice and welcoming.
Fantastic food, exceptionally well cooked and wonderful combination of flavours.
Great food nice people love the place would recommend to anyone
We took advantage of the 20% early diner offer. Even without the offer, the meal would have been excellent value. The food was delicious and the service good and the restaurant was full by the time we left.
We have been to Neil's 4 or 5 times over a couple of years and have never been disappointed. The service is always polite, friendly and unobtrusive. The food is absolutely delicious and Neil has gone out of his way on a couple of occasions to make my husband happy with the menu choice. The atmosphere is fine for us, we are there to relax and enjoy top quality food. I have nothing to compare the prices to as we do not eat out much, certainly not at a fish restaurant, but I can say we are quite happy to pay the prices for the reasons already stated.
A relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, with lovely fresh and well cooked fish. Neil certainly works diligently in his kitchen while his wife and ‘front of house’ staff kept us well informed and served. Lovely meal - thank you.
Food and service were exemplary
Another well cooked fish meal in Neil's Restaurant.Beautiful crab and hake cooked to perfection.Friendly efficient service relaxed atmosphere.Will be booking again.
Delicious meal, lovely fresh fish and very friendly staff.
Very good, memorable meal. We both had fish starters and mains and thoroughly enjoyed it. We will return.
Probably the best meal we have had out in a long time. Delicious crab to start and hake to follow, well presented with no fancy jus or foam. Just good cooking. Staff friendly and efficient. We will visit again.
Absolutely fabulous food and atmosphere. Neil's fish dishes are second to none and I thoroughly recommend his restaurant for a special night out as a couple or as a small party.
An absolutely delicious meal, couldn't fault it, next time we're in Devon,we'll be back. Matthew & Paula
Thank-you......wonderfully consistent.....great experience
Excellent as always, We look forward to our next visit, Thank you
We spend two weeks in Sidmouth every year. the highlight of our holiday is the two meals at Neils The best fish we have ever tasted, good wine and very friendly service See you in September
Really enjoyed our meal. Had the prawns and lobster and would highly recommend. Excellent service, nothing is too much trouble for the servers.
2nd visit . Food was really good.
Yet another delicious meal at our favourite local restaurant. We both had squid which just melted in the mouth. The accompanying breads proved extremely addictive and we were delighted to be given another helping. The hake and talbot were cooked to perfection and the bakewell tart a perfect end to our meal. We will be back soon.
Generally well presented fish dishes. The mussels in the starter dish were not of the highest quality, lacking size and texture. Good duck alternative to the seafood menu. Vegetables a little bland. Nice to see local wines featured. Not sure about the 60s classics on the sound system - necessary?
Superb as always
Really good really good service friendly nothing to much trouble
Very nice evening always good food very lucky to have a good local eating place.
This review covers meals on 22 and 24 March. The food on both occasions was excellent with a wide choice of fish. On Thursday we had sardines & crab/mango starters followed by lemon sole & skate. On Saturday we had same starters but swapped them over; for mains we had monkfish and John Dory. All perfect. Service as always was friendly, efficient & first class. The whole making 2 thoroughly enjoyable evenings during our short holiday in Sidmouth. We look forward to returning at end June.
Our first time at Neil's and it will definitely not be our last. Fantastic fish dishes. Thank you
