we had a great family meal on the last day of the holiday, it did come slightly pricy! the waitress for us was really good, friendly and helpful. we all enjoyed our food, and my fussiest daughter said the chips were the best she has ever tasted - high praise!

Visited for a quick lunch, were seated promptly and served speedily also. Choice of menus including great sounding sandwich combinaions, standard menu and specials. Good choice of fresh fish and the wine menu looked excellent.

We had some lovely crispy squid, then a pulled pork roll and a fish finger sandwich. Both were outstanding. My daughers fish and chips were also very good with the fish fingers being made fresh. I liked the view and style of service and would recommend here for lunch or dinner!

We went to the noisy lobster this week for a birthday treat. The food was well presented and delicious. I had the lobster and chips and it was a large lobster and the chips were fluffy and crispy and at £12 I thought good value. The waitress was really efficient and very friendly.
The only problem was that because it was a warm night the windows were open and the smell from the huge bin outside the resturant was horrid apart from that the evening was great.

We were staying in the area and just had to have a quick look at the beach before we returned home.
So we kinda stumbled across The Noisy Lobster and decide to have our breakfast there, it is essentially a beach café only better.
All three of us had the '5 or something ?' traditional breakfast. This came in good time and was served with a smile.
We sat outside in the sun, great view of the beach and further to the Isle of Wight.
Just as we finished, the heavens opened, that was good timing.
We would go back if we were in the area again. Maybe try a lunch time meal.

Stopped by eh noisy lobster recently on a trip to the beach and decided to have a quick bite and a few drinks whilst looking out to sea.

No complaints about the food, service or drinks. Was pleased to be there and stayed for a longer time than expected.

- only thing to mention to the manager/staff/owner would be that I'd recommend frequent checks on the bathrooms by the staff as my partner nearly fell due to water on the floor in the disabled toilets which could have caused more issues to a current injury.

But like I said. All happy and would visit again and recommend.

Dear Michael C,

Thank you for your recent review, we're pleased you enjoyed your meal with us.

We constantly have members of staffs checking the toilets and making sure they are safe for all customers, so I can only apologise about the water in the disabled toilets.
