Visited on a Saturday lunchtime. We had not booked and they found us a table. It was very busy so I would recommend booking if you can. The food and service was excellent. My wife had the seafood scotch egg that was amazing, she has not stopped talking about it. Our waiter was also excellent, he was very friendly and... More

The location, food and service can not be faulted in any way. We dined early and I imagine that later in the evening the ambience is even better. It is annoying that one has to pay to use the car park even late in the evening and I would expect the restaurant to try to arrange some kind of deal... More

We go here at least every couple of months and regularly have fish and chips and some of the tasty specials. They have delicious food and we've never been let down and love to have our celebrations here when our friends and family come to visit. It is especially lovely in the summer to watch the sun set whilst having... More

The weather forecast was good so we decided to drive to Mudeford for a walk along the beach and lunch. The restaurant was very busy but we were soon found a table. Ordered a beer and a glass of wine arrived quickly and both were very good. For lunch we ordered the scallops as a starter to share and then... More

Staff were great and food was great, wine was good, service was pretty good: but! The bill not happy! Surf and turf for 15 quid.. Two menus to choose from with astericks etc... Asked the lovely waitress to explain which she tried, but failed... So out of 8 people who ordered I think 4 got the deal they wanted, considering... More

Hello Al L, Thank you for your review, it is lovely to hear that our food and our service was up to our high standard. Though I feel such a 'poor' rating is unfair in this circumstance. I was the manager on duty at the time. Our new 'Surf Then Turf' offer runs on Wednesday nights as advertised, and is... More

The noisy lobster on Avon Beach serves excellent fish & chips. The secret is to serve the dish immediately it is cooked. With so many restaurants failing this simple task, it's great to visit a restaurant where they achieve this. The restaurant serves a range of tradition food, with beer and wine. There is a nice view of the sea.... More

Didnt take bookings but were very helpful with timings and how busy it was likely to be etc. When we returned (in full force with 4 kids and 4... More

Best Fish & Chips ever, good atmosphere, good service - good experience. The restaurant obviously has a good reputation as it was constantly busy and near capacity.

We went on Valentine's, but I had trouble with Veggie options, so I spoke to the lovely Lady, over the phone, and they register the menu for me to deal with my allergies.. When we arrived, they knew all about us, and our meal was served swiftly, with a friendly happy member of staff. The food was..... DELISH ......with 6... More
