South Devon’s new place to eat

Coronavirus precautions

The Lobster Pod is open again. The temporary menu is shown on the menu page and can also be downloaded. Please respect social distancing measures while you order and around the grounds.

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


As from Monday 14 September new legislation states that social gatherings of more than six people in England will not be allowed. The Government plans to finalise any exemptions prior to the 14th September and we will update our policies at this time. If you have a booking that is non-compliant we will allow 6 people in the pod and the remaining members of your group will be seated together in the cabin. We will not accept any more than 6 people in a pod to be compliant with the law which we are sure you will understand.
