Generally, a very positive experience but having chosen the location specifically for a lobster birthday lunch, it was disappointing that there were none available, apparently due to the weather over the previous weekend. While fresh is great, any lobster would have been more welcome, so maybe a few cheaper items should live in the freezer?

Great setting at sunset and lovely meal. A small portable fish specials board (chalk board) for each pod would be good. Many thanks

The idea of the pods is fantastic and we loved the atmosphere and having Bluetooth to connect our own music. The service we received from Eva(I think that was her name she is from Slovakia!) was outstanding. She was so friendly and knowledgeable and was an absolute pleasure! However we were very disappointed with the food.When you only have fish and chips or pizza on the menu then the fish needs to be perfect. One of our party had the mackerel which had no crispy skin and was very average. I had the whiting which was served on the bone and every single mouthful I had contained a bone. It was also very under-seasoned so completely tasteless.The plaice was average as well. The chips were like McDonalds chips and again had no seasoning and the peas were overcooked. This could be a fabulous place because o the amazing setting and originality of the pods , however the food really does need to improve a lot. Shame .

We arranged a surprise meal at the Lobster Pod for my Mum and Dad in celebration of their Golden Wedding Anniversary. Rafal and the team could not have been more helpful and made them feel really special on the night. The food, service and views were awesome. Thanks guys.

Our daughters birthday dinner. Staff were brilliant. We had a disabled person with us and the staff went above and beyond to assist so that she could be a part of the celebrations. Despite heavy wind and rain the staff made sure that we had a good time. Thank you!!!!

Views were amazing, food was delicious and service was spot on - especially considering it was the person's second day working there. Highly recommend.
