Great breakfast

Had a lovely walk along seafront on a cold blustery morning. Warmed up by a lovely bacon roll and coffee in warm surroundings. Was very busy and shared a table with strangers which was actually nice as chatted together. Nice soft roll and crispy bacon with perfectly cooked egg.

I decided to come here for dinner while I was in Bognor Regis for the day as I needed somewhere that was open relatively early and this place seemed to fit the bill. Unfortunately I wasn't impressed with this place at all as the food was either poor or average while there was simply no service at all. Customers are... More

Pop along here quite a lot now. Coffee and cake 🎂 yum 😋. Good place for meal or light bite, inside or out it's fab. Be prepared to wait when its busy, it's worth it. 😋

we live nearby and the Lobster Pot is always on our list of places to take visitors. Rain or shine it is the perfect place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. You can have a coffee and an indulgent cake and the ice creams are wonderful. The gourmet fish finger sandwich is a particular favourite of mine! It has a covered... More

First time to the Lobster pot but we had heard good things from friends. The breakfast was great. Really freshly done, not too big and everything tasted great. We came back later that day for the ice cream which was also amazing!! (Despite the cold weather!)

Have visited the Lobster Pot whenever we are in Bognor and will continue to do so when we're in the area. The service may not be the quickest, but, the food is always freshly cooked, hot and plentiful. There's no frills here, it is a seaside cafe open all year which is always a good sign because the locals keep... More

Visited in December with my toddler and baby. Had a great lunch of crab salad which was fresh and tasty. Also had an amazing chocolate muffin - very yummy. Will definatly return when in Bognor. Imagine it is lovely on a sunny day, right on the sea front.

Right by the seaside on the promenade a few minutes walk East past Butlins, the Lobster Pot is a convenient stop-off for a drink, snack or hearty breakfast before or after a long walk enjoying the sea air or watching the mad windsurfers braving all weathers.The restaurant also serves more upmarket meals at other times of the day, but I...
