The Lobster Pot Restarant at Portland Bill

Welcome to The Lobster Pot

Welcome to the Lobster Pot restaurant at Portland Bill. We value traditional qualities of polite friendly service in a modern environment. We are situated on the world famous Jurassic Coast, adjacent to the Lighthouse at Portland Bill. The Lobster Pot is only a short drive from Weymouth and close to the Olympic sailing facilities at Portland Harbour. There is a large car park providing ample spaces for cars and coaches.

The Lobster Pot has been in our family since the business was established in 1952, with 2012 our 60th Anniversary which just happened to coincide with the Olympics, and particularly the Sailing events to be hosted at the Portland Sailing Centre.

The Lobster Pot Restarant interior

Our indoor restaurant is fully air conditioned and has capacity to seat approximately 90 people with full waitress table service. We also have an outside seating area allowing customers to sit and enjoy the stunning panoramic views. Our full menu of food and drink is available in both areas.

With 60 years experience we are proud to illustrate our secrets in producing three of our most sort after menu items, our famous cream teas, our mouth watering crab sandwiches and to top it our renowned freshly blanched crispy chips!

Over the years we have achieved recognition from various sources. 2CR fm (now Heart fm) voted our scones the best in the South region. Our famous scones are a family recipe used for nearly 60 years, which are made on the premises daily and are complimented by jam and local Dorset clotted cream and served with our traditional The Lobster Pot crab sandwichloose leaf tea for an unforgettable experience.

The Lobster Pot is renowned for its fresh chips; we take pride in our chips which are produced from high quality potatoes that are peeled, chipped and blanched in our kitchen.

Fresh local crab is available daily in either our delicious sandwiches or salads (sourced from a local gold star approved shell food specialist).

We also have a gift shop offering a large selection of gifts, souvenirs, toys and outdoor games including crabbing nets and kites, everything thing you need for a day out by the sea.

We can’t guarantee the weather but do try to provide you with all the elements required for a fun day out at the sea. A visit to Portland Bill is a must visit to be added to holiday itinerary for all ages. We look forward to seeing you soon.
