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.

We had a terrific evening at Neil's restaurant. The food was delicious, and obviously prepared with great care, skill and knowledge. Great wine list, too. The service was friendly and attentive, the atmosphere warm and lively. If you can get a spot, go!

The service had forgotten that I had booked it as a birthday celebration and didn’t do anything special. We did leave a generous tip as the lady serving us was attentive.

We had two absolutely delicious meals at Neil’s during our holiday. We would recommend it as a top quality dining experience in Sidmouth. Despite covid 19 it felt very safe and covid secure. You do need to book well in advance as it is very popular.

Surprised that the menu stayed the same price despite a 15% reduction in VAT. Not sure the distance between tables observed the distancing rules.

Restaurant Response

The reason that the menu price has not been reduced is that I believe the Vat reduction is to aid the hospitality industry to recovery after more than 3 months of closure, we have lost 2 out of 4 of our busiest months and are now trading at less than 50% capacity, but overhead costs remain the same. Fish prices have risen greatly since lockdown eased in the UK and Europe. So, to ensure great quality and value on the plate I have chosen to invest some of the extra revenue in this way. It has also helped to prevent us having to increase prices in the near future to cover the higher costs of operating. If you are looking for a saving, we will be participating in the Governments “Eat out to help out” scheme. You may not be sure about the distance between tables, but I am. There is a minimum of 1 metre between them, many are a good deal more. If you’d like to call in one morning I’d be happy to demonstrate this for you.

This was our first visit since Neil’s reopened and we were most impressed with the way they have dealt with the restrictions. We were made very welcome and felt very safe. And the food was, as ever, first class.
