This was our second visit to the Noisy Lobster in two months and it was just as good the second time, my wife had lobster, whilst I enjoyed the gratinated crab. I am not sure what people expect, on both occasions we were served by the excellent Czech waiter and the food, price & quality were faultless.

Had lunch on a hot busy day but was well looked after by staff. The menu had several very tempting dishes but settled on fish and chips and hake in a bisque with muscles. The food was delicious and I would describe it as chefed. I wish I lived nearer as I would become a regular. The other food being... More

Have visited a couple of times recently. Lovely to sit on outside terrace, enjoy a cup of coffee and a sausage sandwich while admiring the views to Mudeford quay and the Isle of Wight.

Jumbo does not enjoy writing negative remarks but every now and then for the sake of maintaining high standards it is with regret necessary. Yesterday Monday 22nd May we called into The Noisy Lobster at Avon Beach. The cocktail was not up to the normal high standard which we have been used to receiving there for many years. Unfortunately the... More

Excellent service and food. We resisted the temptation to go for our usual choices of lobster or fish and chips, which we always enjoy, and tried some new starters and mains - scallops with pork belly, slow-cooked cuttlefish with pea fritters and pea veloute; then a duo of stone bass and halibut, and crab Thermidor. All scrumptious, as was the... More

Visited here 7pm on Friday evening - very busy and we didn't have table booked. Were advised they could accommodate us in an hour so we went for lovely seaside walk and table was available when we returned at 8. We opted for fish and chips which were delicious and well worth the wait. Only problem was that portions were... More

This Café on the beach gets very busy, being the only one. It does have an enviable position being right on the edge of the beach. Food is of good portions and reasonable quality.
