About Lobster Pod Bistro
The Lobster Pod is a bistro situated overlooking the harbour and beach. It has spectacular views across Bigbury Bay and both indoor and outdoor seating. Our three bookable pods have got heaters and sound system to help you enjoy winter weather while trying our food. We specialize in lobsters (waiting for you in our tank - they can not be fresher) and steamed fish both locally caught. We also do pizzas, conebakes,fish chowder and vegetable soup and home-made desserts.
Staff very attentive and friendly , food excellent especially the chowder soup, prices very reasonable, location stunning . Thank you to the staff
We had a fabulous time in the pod. The service was brilliant and the food that should be hot, arrived hot despite its journey through the cold air. Only giving 4 stars for food because a few things weren’t available but then again it was the first day of opening this year. What we did have was excellent. We will be back. It was a most enjoyable experience.
Great location.Great fun with a group. Kicked off our three Day New Year celebrations with friends perfectly.
We had a nice afternoon at the Lobster Pod. We all had the Seafood Chowder, whilst nice it only had a few prawns in and no other fish, so a little poor. Pizzas were good and service was friendly. The novelty is sitting in the pods, the menu is very small and not particularly exciting. I'd recommend as an experience but wouldn't rush back.
Was a great experience, sadly there wasn’t any lobster due to the time of year we went. I feel like this should be mentioned on the website. But highly recommended !
We had such a lovely experience in the new pods! The food was amazing and such lovely service. Will be returning again for sure!
Fab lunch. Dramatic scenery. Food was delicious and service excellent. I’ll definitely come again
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!
Amazing place, incredible views, fantastic service and delicious seafood! Highly recommend to all!
Amazing setting for wife’s birthday, really great all round experience. Had lobster platter and was so good, will definitely be returning, keep up the good work
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.
Had such a lovely time visiting the lobster pod. Great food and a amazing aptmosphere. Very unique would definitely recommend
fantastic service. very different. lovely staff and lovely food.
View is wonderful! Will be back again!
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.
Service friendly and attentive, setting superb, food cooked to perfection, restaurant needs a toilet on site as public ones nearby are grim!
Amazing , 100% come again . Gem of a place
We had a fantastic lunch last Saturday, the service was great and the food was absolutely amazing and such great value for money- the lobster sharing plate was delicious! Thank you so much for a wonderful experience!!
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.
excellent fresh fish, perfectly cooked. Service very quick. lovely and cosy in the pod after it went dark. Will be back!
Great concept - great position - ok food - good luck with everything .....
Great service, stunning views!
