This is my second visit this year, it could have been my third but they only open a few days a week in the winter . The heating was off for some reason, so that reduced the impact, they ran out of whitebait so told me they could only give me half a portion. Yet when the bill came they... More

With the reviews being good for this place we thought we would try on our recent visit to Anglesey. What did we find? Absent welcome, very dated, tired 1970's decor, very below average meal and hugely escalated bill, my husband felt unwell until the morning after. All in all we won't be back for a second visit.

Having read the reviews before we went (including the negative ones) we weren't quite sure what to expect... Don't worry though! The seafood was delicious and the welcome was warm and genuine. The Lobster Pot has a real "family business"feel and the waitresses worked very hard and attentively to make our evening special. Tasty whitebait and fantastic grilled scallops to... More

If you've never been here, or if you have, I can't recommend the restaurant highly enough. Seafood of the highest quality cooked to perfection, local steaks if you prefer, or a surf and turf combo which I keep coming back to! Staff and owners are very friendly, and happily arranged starters as main meals for our daughters, and other adjustments... More

We always try to eat here when visiting Anglesey. The food here is exactly what you would expect from a restaurant with this title, mainly seafood especially lobster but steak is also an option and vegetarians are also catered for. Our experiences have always been 100% positive; the sevice, food, and ambience cannot be faulted.

This restaurant has a fabulous location and the menu although, expensive sounded a real treat. What a disappointment, we struggled to eat it. The lobster was destroyed with a goopy cornflour sauce The oysters had a thick layer of grilled cheese on a raw oyster, similar to cheese on toast. Like no other sea food we'd tried before. Good service... More

A lovely restaurant situated in Church Bay Anglesey. A warm welcome from the front of house staff The food excellent. We've been many times and have always enjoyed ourselves. And particularly on this occasion. A wonderful evening. That's why we keep going back. Happy Days😄

A romantic little restaurant with a true 'local' feel. We arrived at sunset and it was a beautiful setting for the evening. Having never had a lobster dinner this would be a first for both me and my partner. We had crab for starters, lobster for main and that left us stuffed! The food was amazing. The service impeccable. The... More
