Fantastic venue and stunning views from the pods as the tide came in on a stormy day. Brilliant customer service bringing food to our warm & cozy pod on a windy & wet day and the seafood sharing platter was lovely. We've already rebooked!

Fantastic friendly service- great atmosphere and attentive staff. Rafal and the team made it a very special birthday lunch for 10 of us in one of the pods. The pod had heating, a blue toodgh speaker and a phone for ordering more drinks. The spot is beautiful and the idea of pods is very fun. The lobster was cooked to perfection! Pizzas were great too. Thanks!

This was fantastic, the food and service were brilliant. Very friendly staff. Next time we will call ahead to let them know we are after the lobster as we know numbers for these can be tricky.

Hi We would live to see some shell fish on the menu. Maybe Moules-Frites? Tiger prawns etc. We didn’t feel the deli aspect of the salad added anything, we could do without the olives etc and just have a good garden salad. Condiments could be higher quality The pizza was ok but could be improved. The staff were excellent, view of the bay and the seals was amazing. The food was fresh and hot and the desserts were extremely reasonably priced. Just a slight changes to the menu would have us coming back for the food rather than just the location.

We had a fantastic experience in our pod for 10 people. The food was delicious, the service was friendly and the pod was comfortable. A perfect way to spend time with friends.

More of a novelty dining experience than a culinary experience. I visit Hope Cove twice a year stay for a week each time and dine at the cove several times each week. I would not plan to return to Lobster Pod during my visits. It was a perfectly good experience and you can expect to see me on each visit. But I would suggest creating more atmosphere at the venue, the pods isolate diners, the full menu should printed / on pod based screens as it’s easily forgotten once you have left the bar area. What are the phones for? They certainly were not used. The walls are steeped in history- maybe can some of it and link it to an in pod audio playback. Good luck.

Unique venue -want ot come back to the pods - but especial thanks to the two waitresses who climbed up and down the hill with out orders. Polite, friendly, competent. Total contrast to the set just along the coast at S***h M****n . Would happily have given six stars for service.

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
