On a wet and windy November afternoon no better place to watch the crashing waves and mad surfers than from the warmth of our own pod - Bluetooth connection enabled us to listen to our own music whilst we enjoyed fabulous food and drink. Will definitely book again.

With a blue tooth speaker, no real noise limitations and amazing food we were very happy customers. Service was perfect, staff were kind and attentive considering the dreadful weather outside.

Brilliant pods, lovely atmosphere with Bluetooth for music and heating inside. Great service and food- fish was delicious. A more sophisticated look in the pods would be better e.g wooden table, sheepskin blankets, similar to coppa club in London. Menu could be more refined, such as different styles of potato dish rather than just chips and pasta dishes with seafood would be ideal We will be returning with friends!

The platters and starters where amazing. Seriously tasty food, the chowder.. Not so much. Was a bit bland and not what I personally would call a fish chowder, the value for money was brilliant for location. The only thing I would say as a sous chef of a restaurant in Kingsbridge is, the menu needed to have more on it. Burgers, steaks maybe something else but it was delicious. For that we are coming back next week.

We had SUCH a great time taking in the gorgeous views while eating delicious food, chatting and listening to our music choices. Our waiter was lovely and we felt very well looked after. Can’t recommend enough for a unique dinning experience.

Fantastic restaurant in a very picturesque setting. Food was reasonably priced and tasted very good. Service was prompt and the pods were a very unique way to enjoy our 3rd anniversary. An afternoon we won't be quick to forget.

Great early evening celebrating our daughter's birthday. Her daughter had put together a playlist of her favourite songs, the bistro had provided balloons and a banner and we were set for a swinging fun time. Sunset lovely, food delightful - lobsters, hake and pizzas and lots of starter dips - champagne, wine, ginger beer and apple juice accompanied, along with music and silly games. Oh and we bought a cake which accompanied the served ice cream plus candles. Brilliant evening.....daughter and family already rebooked for next week together with another family. So nice to be private and contained so laughter and music didn't annoy fellow customers..

Absolutely lovely evening at the Lobster Pod even tho it was raining. The setting and atmosphere was really quirky and good fun. We will definitely be back. I’ve marked down service as the adult meals arrived and we had to wait another 15 mins for the kids meals and they were really hungry! But I thought I was fantastic other than that.
