What better place could you go to, sitting outside looking out to sea with the most scrumpious food and drink. When the weather is having an off day, sit inside! We are lucky because we live locally so can take a walk along the prom, have a meal or snack and then walk home. How lucky are we!!!!!!!

Had lovely coffee and cakes but we were very concerned to see the methods used by one of the staff when scraping the ice out of the ice cream freezer.

This place has a large menu at excellent prices for a seaside restaurant. Good food and very friendly staff. Overlooks the sea and if the sun is shining it adds to the pleasure.

I have been going to the Lobster Pot for many years but cant believe how the service has gone down hill in recent weeks. The girl serving me on the counter was rude and very abrupt with me and i felt like i was a nuisance to her because i asked her if she had soya milk and gluten free... More

We went as a big group on a very rainy day. The portion sizes were very generous & the food was of good quality. I'd recommend it for a casual lunch.

We popped-in for afternoon tea whilst walking along the promenade. Lively atmosphere and good service from the hard working young staff. Would like to return for lunch or supper when we are next in the area.

Foods always excellent. Arrive early on sunny days or you'll have a wait for a table out side in spring or summer. Staff are polite and efficient. We go at least twice a week.

We visited this lovely sea-front cafe whilst staying in Bognor, what a lovely little gem it is! The food was fresh, tasty & really good value, with plenty of choice and daily specials. The service was friendly and quick. Would definitely recommend.
