We offer high standard accomodation which has recently been refurbished. With superb
views overlooking Lyme Bay which now has World Heritage Status.
There is no feeling to match that of being in the heart of an historic
town with a world renown reputation and excellent shopping
delights on your doorstep.
The Inn has a long history and has been under the same
management for more than a quarter of a century. Today it offers
a large, welcoming single bar, with two sun decks overlooking the
bay with panoramic views of the ancient Cobb. We offer an
exceptional selection of Real Ales, beers and fine wine. Our
food is freshly prepared with fresh fish being our speciality. There's
no feeling to match that of being at an historic vantage point in the
centre of a world renown town.
At the Rock Point Inn we love dogs, and they are allowed on the premises, but unfortunately we regret that we cannot allow them to stay the night in our rooms. Many apologies.

..of Lyme Regis
The first written record of Lyme Regis was in 774AD when the West Saxon King Cynewulf gave the land along the
river Lym to the monks of Sherborne Abbey, to establish a sea salt manufacturing industry. However man had
inhabited this area for thousands of years. The Iron Age forts of Pilsdon Pen, Lamberts Castle, Blackberry Castle
and Coney Castle lend testament to those early ancestors.
The town was known by the Romans as "Lym Supra Mare". A Roman Villa has been found at the nearby village of
Harcombe. Lyme takes its name from the river Lym; Lym meaning a torrent of water.
The Rock Point Inn is situated in the centre of Lyme Regis this
historic Inn was built in 1750 and is the only
Inn to be situated at a river mouth. We offer
bed and breakfast accomodation for visitors and we specialise in locally caught fish on our menu.
