Going Out

The Talbot Arms

Uplyme's village pub and probably the place you are most likely to meet people and hear the village gossip. 

All the usual village pub things happen at the Talbot including darts, pool, pub cricket and of course, drinking real ale watching sport.

Where to Eat - In Uplyme


There is currently only one place where you can eat out in the village and that is the Talbot Arms (see above) where pub grub is available most lunchtimes and evenings.  Also a generous carvery most Sunday lunchtimes.


Where to Eat Within 5 minute drive


Within a 5 minute drive there are a wide range of Restaurants.  The Victoria Hotel - easily the best of the bunch - was sold in 2007 for redevelopment.

Uplyme also has a well attended Parish Church and a new Village Hall where various events are held throughout the year from short mat bowling to touring performers and ballroom dancing. 

See the notice board outside the hall, or the Parish News for more info on forthcoming events. Other village events are often publicised on posters outside the Post Office.


Cinema and Theatre

The Regent Cinema in Lyme is often amongst the first venues in the UK to screen newly released films.

The Marine Theatre in Lyme stages all types of live performances from pantomime to musicals to touring rock bands.

Places to see - Prescott Pinetum

Prescott Pinetum, (also known as The Pinetum, Uplyme Pinetum and Woodhouse Pinetum), sits on a north east facing slope, and as such is clearly visible from Uplyme, and the B3165 (Lyme Road) across the valley, as well as to the houses in Woodhouse Fields immediately to the east of the wood.

Despite its name, the majority of the wood is oak woodland, with the Pinetum area restricted to the lower slopes in the central portion of the wood.


Exotic Conifer and broadleaved species have previously featured in the Tree Register of the British Isles, with some listed as 'Champion' trees for their size - more.

Places to see -Trinity Hill

Trinity Hill heathland is situated two miles south-east of Axminster in East Devon straddling a minor road joining the A3052 and the A35. 


The reserve covers 52 acres (21 hectares) of mainly acidic lowland heath and bracken. 


The local planning authorities are Devon County Council and East Devon District Council.   Trinity Hill East lies within Uplyme parish and Trinity Hill West in Axminster parish - more.

A recently launched What's On in Lyme website carries listings of events in Lyme.
