Fantastic vegetarian restaurant Tierra .

Good vegetarian restaurants are hard to find in the UK, but Tierra in Lyme Regis is "The best".

The menu is fantastic and so original. The staff were friendly and efficient and the cost was very reasonable. I would highly recommend a visit to this restaurant if you are ever in Lyme Regis, Dorset. I would even go as far as to say take a visit to this beautiful part of England just to eat here. Hopefully the chef, Mark Evans, will produce a book with his wonderful creations.
