Had a lovely meal out in the beer garden on a recent visit to Sheringham. It seems like a nice pub for a drink too.

The atmosphere outside was pleasant. The advantage for August evening dining is that it is fairly sheltered so you can sit outside. Other pubs in Sheringham would have got a bit too chilly for al fresco dining.

The menu was good- as we were by the sea, all four of us opted for seafood. We had crab/whitebait/calamari for starters and sea basses/mussels for mains. All the starters were spot on- calamari can be hit and miss, but it was cooked perfectly here at The Lobster.

Our mains were also great. I had sea bass which was perfect for a summer's evening. My Mrs had mussels and she was impressed with the amount of bread that came with them- some places give you a modest portion of bread, but there was a good amount here.

The drinks were good and service at the bar was very friendly. The prices here were reasonable considering the quality of the food.

Visited here today and ordered three crab sandwiches and two bowls of the chips the crab sandwiches were delicious but the chips were very over priced for freezer chips £3.65 a portion.

The pub served good beer and is in a great location. The barman (landlord?) was very friendly. We intended to eat there but the prices would have set us back nearly £50 for a bar lunch for 3.

Have eaten here many times before but not reviewed until today. Having looked at a few recent reviews I wonder if we were all eating at the same 'Lobster'? We chose fish and chips and the chili and both were more than we could consume (we had not eaten earlier to fill our stomachs!). As before we observed other diners various foods being served and not one meal could be described as paltry (including the sandwiches). Anyway, the food was delivered in a timely fashion on a Sunday afternoon (during carnival weekend) and both meals were superb. Drinks can undoubtedly be purchased elsewhere, that is called 'freedom of choice', but I do not find the prices particularly high; I have paid a lot more elsewhere (unfortunately). Friendly staff.

Just bought my mother a sausage sandwich at £6.50. Sausage sandwich in name and sausage sandwich in nature. ONE sausage finely sliced between two slices of bread. There was a spoonful of salad and a few onions thrown into the bargain but hardly value for money!!!!!!
