“Lovely birthday lunch”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Our favourite place by a long way! We visited with our cousin for a birthday lunch for her. All four meals were great quality, delicious and served by one of the usual lovely waitresses. Can't wait for our next visit!

“Friendly staff and good food”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

A fantastic little restaurant that has both tables inside and outside. We visited during the summer of 2013 and enjoyed a delightful meal sitting on the picnic tables outside the restaurant whist enjoying the glorious view out to sea.. This facility was ideal for dog owners and they provided water for him too!

“Very handy!”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

The Lobster Pot is a very nice little restaurant/cafe.
You can order from a menu outside and sit on one of the many benches or you can order from the restaurant menu and sit inside, which is what we did.. The meals are varied and very nice. The waitresses were pleasant enough, and it was clean.
This is the only place at the lighthouse to eat unless you go to the nearby pub, but it only opens until 3pm, and meals are served for a couple of hours only, so we didn't eat there as it wasn't convenient.
A very handy little restaurant!

“wonderful crab salad and plenty of it”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

despite being miles from anywhere and in a somewhat exposed spot the restaurant was very busy the service was prompt and friendly the crab salad was fresh and plenty of it washed down by a pot of proper tea made from loose tea, no teabags here. The restaurant itself is clean and well presented. But get early as it does get full very quickly even on a blustery september day.

“Superb crab sarnie and cheesy chips”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Stopped here after a walk around Portland Bill. Efficient ordering service at a hatch and order number called out when your food is ready. A quick light bite of beautiful fresh crab sandwich generously filled and a portion of crisp cheesy chips, only comment would be the cheese would've been better melted rather than sprinkled cold on the top. Lovely setting with the lighthouses and sea views.
