Came for a big family meal. I preferred the pub before they gutted and enlarged it. Oh well.

This place has had a major revamp since I was last here. It's now a swanky restaurant-like affair with chap in chinos and loafers showing you to your table. That said, there bar (which have been entirely remodeled and relocated) has some seating for drinkers and the front of the pub also seems drinker friendly. The beer was good too.

We'd arrived in Lyme Regis at 11am and after a brief walk around in the bad weather came here. I've always quite liked the Pilot.

Dinner at the Pilot. The menu has gone all ciabatta and gone from our corner are the photos of assorted friggets and destroyers on the wall.

Palmers - Colmers4.00AcceptableA new beer for me. Apples. Hint soapy. Golden beer. Not the best beer I've ever had.

Ah the Pilot Boat. Job's a good 'un! I'm a bit tipsee now after 7 hours in a car (bloody M25) and 1.5 pints of Dorset beer. Yes that's all it's taken. I'm going to read some Robert B Parker now. Good bye.

Sunday lunch in a pub. Does it get much better than that? Well maybe, if lunch is primarily of the liquid variety. I always find this the friendliest pub in Lyme and the beer is always fine too.

About 5:30pm and the crowds were heading back home. The pub was therefore quite quiet. ...then AC/DC's Highway to Hell came on. Might have to stay for another.

Mid evening visit. Came for another pint of Palmers Best. Palmers are very much the "Sheps" of West Dorset but I like them anyway. Pretty empty but staff were very friendly and apparently doing food until 10pm.
