Penny Black was established about 7 years ago in the former Sorting Office of Lyme Regis Post Office in the heart of Lyme Regis. There is lots of character enhanced by a vintage theme and a sunny walled courtyard with outside seating for at least 28. Inside there are 25 covers.

The business has been a great success not only attracting a regular and loyal local trade throughout the year but also many visitors to the town. It offers good quality, reasonably priced home cooked food ranging from breakfasts, light lunches, cakes and snacks and afternoon teas and quality coffees. Opening hours are 9.00am - 5.30pm.

Accounts can be made available to seriously interested applicants.

The cafe is part of the Post Office complex with the busy Post Office counter and stationer at the front and adjacent walk through sales of curios, collectables, fossils, garden ornaments etc. Both provide useful footfall for Penny Black.

Lyme Regis is a picturesque coastal town noted for its many character buildings, centuries old Cobb Harbour and unspoilt surrounding countryside. The town centre provides good shopping facilities for day to day needs and the larger centres of Taunton and Exeter are both about 28 miles away. There is a main line railway station at Axminster (6 miles inland). In Lyme Regis there is also a sailing club, bowls, golf course, theatre and numerous local societies.

The town is situated on the beautiful and unspoilt Devon and Dorset ‘Jurassic Coast’ awarded World Heritage Site status by unesco in December 2001.
