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 four 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 pan fried fish both locally caught. We also do pizzas, light bites, fish chowder and vegetable soup and home-made desserts.
Great service and great view
Service so kind , we had someone disabled with us and nothing was too much trouble , all the food was delicious especially the lobsters we have already recommended you to friends in Salcombe and looking forward to another visit 5 star in every way snd the view !!
We had a fantastic evening at the Lobster Pod Bistro in one of the pods. The kids enjoyed their pizza and meatballs, and my husband enjoyed his pizza too. I had the lobster which was plentiful but it was a little dry. It would have benefited from a side of melted butter. Customer service was great and the pods were clean. The scenery is what makes this extra special. We would definitely return and recommend to others but I would probably not order the lobster again.
Absolutely incredible place! Amazing view, great staff, bloody brilliant food! All at a very fair price!
Fantastic venue, fantastic food and great service Thank you
Great views, good food, can’t wait to come again, sincere thanks to the member of staff that looked after us so well .
Stunning location, the view is unbelievable. Food is simple and service is good. An overall wonderful experience.
What can say the most amazing fresh seafood, seafood platter topped off with a lobster. Service was spot on and amazing views
It was outstanding from service, food, cleanliness and very well prepared for COVID centric.. The atmosphere and views are sensational but last evening you get 10/10 for everything... They even decorated the Pod as it was a friend birthday! Well done. I can’t wait to be back as soon as Lockdown is over... Thank you
There was a fantastic young man who was taking care of us ( sorry I didn’t catch his name) nothing was to much trouble despite the weather being hard to deal with!
My kids loved our waiter Benji!
Good size meals for the price. Service is ways friendly and helpful. Great atmosphere even when it's dark.
Loved it! The most amazing setting and yummy fresh lobsters complimented with kind service! Need no more...
Lovely views, really excellent service and the food was lovely - freshly cooked and beutiful fish - will be visiting again soon
Service was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble and made our experience extra special. I would have liked to have had more seafood options for example dressed crab however the menu did cater for most.
We'll always try to book in every time we're in Devon. Seafood platter is great but maybe you could add some chips 🙂 only other comment is that in rain & wind last week we found the food reached the table colder than on previous visits which although not inedible, was a bit of a shame. Great place though & will always recommend.
10/10 experience, loved every second (even in the pouring down rain)
First experience - both myself and my daughter enjoyed it, shame about the weather being horrible but didnt spoil the day. The only small thing i would say is that were wernt shown how the bluetooth worked or the heating.. but that's more my fault for not asking. Will be coming back again shortly to try the lobster.
A beautifully presented, absolutely delicious fish platter for two, served with chilled white wine, an amazing view and a good helping of autumn sunshine. All of this whilst being nestled inside a very clean, glass pod feeling safe from both the wind from the sea and the dreaded Covid! We loved it!
The pizzas were really small and also the fish taco and the chowder. The mixed seafood platter was lovely apart from the most tasteless fish pate. Expensive food but the view was stunning
Fantastic service from Benjamin working tirelessly in difficult conditions. The lobster was a bit overcooked unfortunately.
The pods were brilliant! The food was delicious and the service was spot on. Will definitely be back.
Pods are snug cosy and clean View is amazing for an autumn night Staff friendly and polite Food was gorgeous and very reasonable. Well organised during these social distancing times Well worth a visit very enjoyable
