Review on The Lobster Pot
You guessed it, this likeable place specialises in seafood. The Lobster Pot was established on beautiful Church Bay in 1946, when John and Frieda Wilson opened their cottage as a café and guesthouse serving lobster teas. A lot has changed since then, and long-serving chefs Steffan and Wendy Coupe now own and run the business.
Lobsters and crabs arrive fresh daily, and are kept live in tanks (not pots!) in the garden. Oysters and mussels are hauled from the Menai Straits, winkles are picked at low tide from the bay, and other items are from specialist local fishermen and suppliers. The result is a vast seafood menu that majors in dishes of the old school: in addition to lobsters six ways, you are likely to find scallops Mornay, fish pie, dressed crab salad, even prawn cocktail (served in scallop shell).
Meat eaters and vegetarians are also looked after, with everything from steak Diane and rack of lamb to mushroom Stroganoff and spiced tomato tagliatelle. All manner of classic sweets, puds and ice cream concoctions round things off. Self-catering accommodation is available in a flat above the restaurant and in a cottage nearby.
