The Lobster Pot Tearoom is very close to Berneray ferry terminal. I walked here while waiting for the ferry. I was lucky enough to be there on a day when there was delicious freshly made gingerbread - yum. There is also a shop here that...More

We loved this place. Extremely friendly service. Cosy atmosphere and fantastic crab claw sandwiches. Generous pots of tea as well. Look forward to returning.

Found the shop lovely, and staff appeared friendly, however, I found myself feeling very uncomfortable sitting in the tea room surrounded by Golliwogs for sale (particularly being mixed white British and black Caribbean 🙁) This spoilt it for me and I found myself feeling embarrassed...More

We made and unscheduled stop for a quick lunch. We had a jacket potato with tuna mayo, hot smoked salmon sandwiches (brown bread), crab sandwiches (brown bread) and butternut and sweet corn soup. All were very substantial, in fact you couldn't have got anymore soup...More

I am writing this review to counter some of the poor ones I read here about this place. I can only say that the reviewers must have caught this place on a bad day , or in a bad mood. We stopped off for tea...More

This place has a For Sale sign outside, so everything may change soon. The welcome was good, as was the soup and fresh crab salad. Small grocery store attached (Ardmaree Stores).

It seems that the place is for sale. Good place to stop and go watching the seals or to wait for the ferry that boards at Berneray

Well, that wasn't the best tearoom we've seen. Although, apparently unlike other reviewers here, service was very friendly (to us) I can also confirm the overpriced crab sandwiches, the pad WiFi and above all the, to say the least, *very* strange choice in children's toys...More

The Lobster Pot tearoom is a lovely spot to stop for either a snack or a meal. It is situated just north of the Calmac ferry pier to Harris on the island of Berneray. Food is excellent. It is an ideal place to sit and wait if you are too early for the ferry or if you are in the hostel on Berneray. Views from the tearoom are lovely, especially if it is an nice day and you are sitting on the picnic benches outside. The ladies in the tearoom are lovely - especially when nattering away in Gaelic!
