Visited on a busy day but had no problem being seated.Ordered the crab sandwiches, which were delicious if a little costly for what we received. Staff were pleasant, helpful and efficient and cleanliness was second to none. Beautiful views in all directions.

visited the lobster pot on 31st Aug 2014 while visiting my son and his girlfriend who have recently moved here. Ate lunch at the restaurant and we were very lucky to be sat at the only unreserved table. Best to book. Food is reasonably priced and the menu is varied and delicious. I will definitely return.

We arrived on a very busy day and had to queue. The staff were very young, helpful and efficient. One of my guests was disabled and despite being rushed off their feet, the girls did their very best for her and we were seated fairly quickly. The crab sandwiches were some of the best I have eaten, were beautifully presented... More
