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.

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

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.

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.
