The food at the Lobster Pot is excellent, especially the seafood. The service is efficient and friendly. however, because of this it is very busy. Some of the main courses had sold out by 12.30pm. The food is not cheap, but reasonable for the quality. The wind on Portland Bill is often very strong but there is little that the... More

I thought that Portland Bill would be empty, but this great little place was right adjacent to the lighthouse. A couple of crab sandwiches and two cups of tea to go made our visit here great.

We were recommended to come here for lunch and it certainly did not disappoint. Busy, buzzing, café and we were fortunate on a Saturday lunch time to get the last table for 4 and easily fitted 5 of us on it (though there is seating outside). Very nice menu (hot and cold) including fresh sea food. Plentiful portions and well... More

We came here on the recommendation of a friend for a crab sandwich and will definitely be back! This was our first visit and we were surprised to see the restaurant so full on a wet October morning but the management definitely know what they are doing. Everything is so well organised and with plenty of staff, who are very... More

What a wonderful location with superb views out towards Portland race . Food very good although disappointing that very little seafood available . Service very friendly . Value for money satisfactory albeit perhaps a little expensive and also reflects that apart from a pub there is no competition in the area. At such therefore if you are at Portland bill... More

We enjoyed a decent fish and chip meal here, somewhere I had always intended to stop at one day but never did. Not bad at all, tasty, did the job while doubling-up as an area of respite from the persistent cold breeze that raced across Portland Bill that spring. Clean and tidy and a nice reminder of a pleasant visit... More

Food good value for money. Menu quite basic, but the crab sandwiches were wonderful. Excellent service, polite & patient. Recommend booking, especially for Sunday lunch. Will be back soon.
