The Lobster Pot is about as far north as you can go in Wales ( next stop Isle of Man ! ), but it is well worth the trip to find this gem.
I first visited this restaurant 45 years ago and it has not lost its charm. It is the site of an important fishing and distribution business for the locality and beyond. Church bay is aptly named after a steepled church which comes into view some way before you get the vista of the magnificent bay over to Holyhead Mountain in the distance. This is a busy beach in the summer but there is parking in a car park opposite the Lobster Pot. When we got there at 6 pm the car park was just starting to empty from what had been a busy day.
A bottle of Muscadet on the terrace started our evening and was followed by a delightful meal in light and airy surroundings. The converted cottage is divided into several eating rooms, each one with its own character.
As the name suggests Lobster in all forms is on the menu, with fresh fish ' specials ' added to the list. There were 6 of us and we ate early , they accommodate 2 sittings and the timings suited us very well. There was no rush to finish our meal as we could have coffee in the lounge or bar in pleasant surroundings.
The staff were delightful, local youngsters who obviously took a pride in their work and were well schooled in their art. They were as comfortable in Welsh as they were in English and it was pleasant to hear them change fluidly between the Welsh , English and Irish in our group.
It was a very pleasant evening and I will not be leaving I another 45 years before I return.
