Coronavirus precautions

Closed Tuesday and Wednesday until (hopefully) end of summer.

Please respect social distancing measures while you order and around the grounds.

We are open from 12 noon–10pm. Last orders at 9pm. Please book a pod online (the diary is now open for the whole year) or email to book an outside bench/indoor table in our cabin. Rule of six remains in power until regulations change.

The Pods and tables are open. All bookings must be made online, either by the booking form or email. Telephone booking is suspended.

Dear Valued Customers

We are extremely sorry to announce that we will be closing on Tuesdays and Wednesdays up to (hopefully) the end of the summer. We are training more staff at the moment and plan to reopen seven days a week from then.

This has been caused due to the nationwide shortage of staff in the hospitality sector. The situation will remain until we have enough trained staff to open on these days again. I am sure that you will understand that it is vital that our fantastic team at the Bistro have their days off each week and shutting for the two days will allow this to happen.

If you know of anyone looking for a Chef de Partie position we would be delighted if they could send a CV to the following email address and we will be in touch with them straight away:
We are so sorry for the two day closure and we are working hard to resolve the situation as soon as possible – we are as disappointed as you.

With all good wishes from the team at the Lobster Pod Bistro.
