About Us

Welcome to the Lobster Pot Restaurant, situated on the cliff edge at Portland Bill.  We boast some of the best views of our magnificent coastline.

Since the business was established in 1952, the family have taken pride in offering a well cooked meal, with friendly table service, using local produce where possible.

 We can now also offer a click and pay service via your mobile phone which enables you to order your refreshments and pay whilst sat at your table.

The Lobster Pot is a favourite watering hole for those who enjoy coastal walks and bird watching. 

 We are only a short drive from Weymouth and close to the Olympic sailing facilities at Portland Harbour.

Our indoor restaurant is fully air conditioned and heated during those chillier winter months.

We have an outside seating area which can accommodate over 100 customers who can sit and enjoy the stunning panoramic views.  Our full menu of food and drink is available in both areas.

Over the years we have achieved commendations from newspapers and radio.  One local radio station voted our scones the best in the southern region.  Many people comment on the quality of our teas as we still only use loose leaf tea in the restaurant.

We take great pride in our chips which are produced from high quality potatoes that are peeled, chipped and blanched on the premises.

Fresh crab is generally available daily and is sourced from a local gold star approved shellfish specialist.

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

We can't guarentee the weather but we do try to provide you with all the elements required for a fun day by the sea.  A trip to Portland Bill is an essential part of your itinerary when on holiday or on a visit to South Dorset.

Due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak, we have had to make some alterations to the way that our business operates. See Covid Update page..
