Originally built in the 18th century, we purchased the historical, grade II listed pub in 2018. It has since undergone sensitive restoration work to give the building a new lease of life. Located on the waterfront, it has outstanding views over Lyme Bay and the Cobb - the seaside town’s famous pier.
Alongside a pub and outside decking area, the Rock Point also has nine new guest bedrooms – including dog-friendly, sea view and twin rooms.
Steve Worrall, managing director of St Austell Brewery’s pubs, inns and hotels said: “We’re delighted that the Rock Point Inn is now officially open. It’s been a tough few months, so the long-awaited opening of our first pub in Dorset feels like a very special moment.
“The Rock Point is in a great position, right in the heart of Lyme Regis with stunning waterside views, and just a few steps away from Front Beach. We can’t wait to welcome locals back to the pub as well as those looking to visit the West Country this summer.
He continues: “As we have in all our managed pubs, we have introduced extra measures to the Rock Point to keep our guests and pub teams safe – from our new Easy Order app and hand sanitising stations, to one-way systems. Our customers will notice some small differences but even in these unusual times we can guarantee a great experience – delicious food, fresh draught beers and our usual warm welcome.”
