The Monmouth Table

The Monmouth Table was born on the pebbles of Monmouth Beach in Lyme Regis, Dorset; after a summer spent eating barbequed fish speared just off shore. Our aim is to bring seasonal and honest food from along the Jurassic Coast with pop up dining events cooked by chef Annie Coplestone and managed by Carlotta Paolieri.

we are born on the sea

We focus on cooking fish, making the most of our location and our access to the freshest of hauls. We also cook beautiful, organic vegetables sourced from local farms to go with it. Our small kitchen requires us to be as close to zero-waste as possible, which guarantees freshness, but also means that not everything on the menu may be available all night – so get it whilst it’s hot!

The Monmouth Table believes in freshly cooked food bursting with flavours and aims to provide an authentic and enjoyable atmosphere to share with your fellow diners.
