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!
Had an amazing meal. Food excellent, staff very friendly and welcoming. Would definitely recommend and will return if we are in Sidmouth again
Despite offering a limited menu to accommodate Covid restrictions, the choices on offer were still varied and were all excellent. The best meal we had in Sidmouth
Staff were lovely and food was great.
Delicious, friendly, value for money, covid19 safe. A lovely evening
A delightful evening with friends and Neil’s team. Another triumph of excellent food, service and pleasant atmosphere. Will return again soon.
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.
Beautiful food and very friendly vibes.
Excellent friendly service and impeccable adherence to Covid19 requirements without making it uncomfortable. Food outstanding - wanted everyone else’s dishes as well as mine!
Excellent, food wonderful every time we go there.
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.
Always a treat to eat at Neil’s. Fantastic food served by friendly and knowledgeable staff. We’ve never had anything less than a fabulous evening. Keep up the good work Neil & team
Lovely evening with good food & service
Absolutely brilliant experience at Neil’s. Even with restrictions on covid, the set menu is diverse, the portion size is good and the standard of the food is divine. I would 100% recommend, a must visit in Sidmouth.
We had a lovely evening and our food intolerances and preferences were really well catered for. The service was quick and polite and the food was fantastic. Thank you!
The food is always excellent and the service is friendly and efficient. The best coffee ice cream I've ever had! Also felt safe during these uncertain times.
Excellent fish and seafood dishes, and friendly efficient service.
Fresh produce from the sea prepared and cooked excellently. Great service. Good to be back during these strange times. Would recommend this restaurant
Perhaps a tad more expensive than other restaurants we've tried in the area. But very enjoyable, food was lovely and service was great. We will return on our next trip to Sidmouth
As good as always. Great to have you back. Lovely food. Good service. Nice relaxing atmosphere. Our first meal out since places reopened, and it was nice to feel normal again.
Surprised that the menu stayed the same price despite a 15% reduction in VAT. Not sure the distance between tables observed the distancing rules.
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.
Excellent meal in pleasant surroundings with fellow diners - just what we all need
Once again thank you for the excellent quality of food. All tables booked, if you wish to receive the same I suggest you book soon.
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.
In the circumstances of Covid-19 restrictions, they are doing an excellent job. We felt safe. Lovely food, lovely to be back!
