“Perfect Valentine Meal”
Reviewed February 15, 2012

This was my 1st visit to the Lobster Pot but will definitely not be my last. I booked the table a week ago on the back of some good reviews for Valentines Night, despite the good reviews, being aware this is one of the busiest nights in restaurants I expected the usual "cram them in where you can, hoist the prices sky high and pre cook a scant menu". What we got was completely different.
The tables were laid out perfectly, with plenty of space between each to enable intimate conversation, the menu had a great selection for each course, I think about 6 starters, 10 mains and 6 sweets, the food was without a doubt cooked to order, my wifes Lamb shank with Cranberry was enormous and delicious and my Sea Bass with olives and onions was to die for. The Prawn starter was lovely, and although we avoided the sweet having been filled up by the first 2 courses did finish with a caffeterie of coffee which amply provided 2 good cups of coffee each. The amazing thing was the bill, we had 3 other drinks with the meal and the cost was under £62 which for food of this standard is exceptional, especially on Valentines.
Finally I would like to congratulate the staff on their attentive but unobtrusive service throughout the evening, you will go a long way to find better, happier service from a team that clearly love what they do and enjoy bringing pleasure to others, if I could give 6 stars I would. Well done and will see you very soon.

“Vast menu choice, and friendly service”
Reviewed February 9, 2012

Eight of us had a very enjoyable lunch, and I think we all ate different dishes, and we were all pleased with our food. Lots of interesting dishes to choose from when we next visit, and I am very tempted to try the extensive fish menu.

A little bit noisy.
