We had a lovely evening meal at The Noisy Lobster a few weeks ago. Located right on Avon Beach the restaurant is approached by walking through the car park. The outside lighting was subtle but you could see where you were going. The sound of the ocean gently lapping on the shore gave the whole place a wonderful atmosphere. The... More

This review is only about the restaurant visit, the coffee, the occasional snack and the ambience. We have been visiting this restaurant for coffee and snack approximately 350 times since 2007. It has always been one of the great pleasures of life,both under the previous management and the new. Under the present management there have been extensions, new kitchen, refurbishments,... More

As the name implies this is a seafood restaurant, but outside of that the choice is very narrow so check the menu on-line first if you aren't into fish or shellfish so that you aren't disappointed on your visit. Given its location on the sea front this restaurant can be very busy at times so booking ahead is definitely recommended.... More

The initial welcome with a smile and choice of seating made us pleased to have selected here tea for our morning cake stop. The Noisy Lobster looks out over Christchurch Bay with The Needles on the horizon. Avon Beach makes an easy walk and great location for family, couples and sports people alike. We plan to return to enjoy the... More

We were not offered drinks on arrival, and when the waitress came to take our order we were told the drinks menu was on the table - first we knew about it! Vegetables tasted of nothing, I suspected they came out of a microwave bag, but the seafood was good. Have had an excellent meal there before so was disappointed.

First class food - best in area. As soon as we arrived we received a warm welcome from the staff. The menu was extensive with a supplementary Specials of the day. Service was quick and the food was expertly presented. No delay between courses all served by friendly and cheerful staff. Top marks for the renovation and décor. Brilliant evening... More

We've been regular visitors to the Noisy Lobster over the years and have been quite happy to drive over an hour to get there. They do exquisite fish dishes - all fresh - such as lobster, crab and mussels. It's slightly overpriced (£9.50 for a scallop starter)but the food is of good quality and they use expensive ingredients. Kids menu... More

We went here and were blown away with how amazing the food was prepared, cooked and presented. The food was better than a restaurant I recently went to where we paid double the price. The service was attentive, friendly, happy and with speed and genuine care the whole place was inviting, warm, and smelling of great food. The soup of... More

A fantastic place to sit and have a coffee or meal or even a function. Right on the Avon Beach with a good view of the I.O.W and beach and sea activities. Well appointed and with excellent service in a very friendly atmosphere. Park you car in the car park behind the restaurant not of the waterfont (its cheaper). Enjoy... More

We were really disappointed by our visit to this restaurant on 8.11.14. Previously we have had very good food and service here but on this occasion we were disappointed by both. The table was booked for 8.00 but not ready when we arrived. We were offered a seat in the bar area to wait but then had to attract the... More
