About
The Bass & Lobster Foodhouse prides itself on two things... local food and service. Established in 2009, this popular local restaurant has been recognised throughout the island for providing fresh local produce. Head Chef Dave Thorpe-Jones has local hidden treasures ready for your latest dining experience. Hand-selected King scallops caught by their local scallop diver off Jersey's reefs. Seafood served just hours after leaving the seabed that puts a real emphasis on the restaurant's fresh appeal and quality. Located along a snug stretch of Gorey coastline, with a terrace for summer wine, the restaurant offers comfortable open-plan dining. The mood is set with a dedicated team headed up by Chefs'

This was an absolutely fantastic evening. Tennerfest dinner which was nothing short of adventurous and excellent food. Such a wonderful team that made us feel very welcome (including children). Really deserves all the complimentary reviews.

Had a lovely meal this evening. I had the delicious tempura beef to start, a fresh fish and chips, and a warm, wintery crumble for desert. Would highly recommend. The staff were very attentive and friendly.
