Seasonal & local produce, Small plates, Cosy setting
Lilac’s unassuming location – tucked away in a refurbished 400- year-old cellar on Lyme Regis’s high street – makes for a cosy and intimate dining experience. The younger sister to nearby restaurant Robin Wylde, Lilac offers a selection of small plates with a seasonal menu that changes daily based on what produce is available locally. Dishes feature traditional ingredients with almost exotic flavour combinations – think pork belly with slaw and plum chutney, and roasted hispi cabbage drizzled with tahini yoghurt and an olive, caper and raisin dressing.
We love the stonework wine cellar offering up a range of world-class, rare and low-intervention bottles. Of course, if wine isn’t your bag you could always take advantage of beers and ciders from local breweries, while cocktail lovers are sure to find something that takes their fancy at the bar.
Maverick tip: Fond of red wine but not sure how to tell your Pinot Noir from your Cabernet Sauvignon? Don’t fret. Lilac’s friendly staff will be happy to recommend the perfect pour to complement your meal.
