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 and contemporary design and allows you to actually see Neil at work.

“I’m passionate about sourcing the best products and keeping that freshness through to the table.”

Neil Harding

Neil has many years of experience working in some of Bristol’s top Hotels before moving down to Devon in 1988 to be closer to the food he loves to cook the most. After working in some of the most respected kitchens and with the most talented chefs Neil has created a gem of a restaurant in the beautiful seaside town of Sidmouth.

Neil’s love of fish and experience in selecting the best produce, combined with the deep knowledge of local suppliers that comes after years of working in Beer and Sidmouth means that you get excellent food at excellent value.

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.
