Rui Barradas has answered correctly for a simple lm case.

You can also do 
lm(y~1) to obtain an estimated mean.
That formulation happens to be quite useful if you are interested in a purely random-effects model* fitted using, say, lme, though you won't generally get a simple mean for unbalanced data in such a case.
