Situated in Kennington, close to Elephant and Castle, The Lobster Pot is a highly recommended and nautical-themed testament to Brittany-born owner and head chef Hervé Régent's love of lobsters. The Lobster Pot is recommended by the Hardens, Square Meal, Good Food and Via Michelin guides. Established over 15 years ago by Hervé and his wife Nathalie, The Lobster Pot is committed to serving fresh dishes that taste delectable in an atmosphere that is truly unique and fun. To ensure that only the finest quality produce is used in the kitchen, Hervé goes to Billingsgate and New Covent Garden markets early and insists on bringing only the best back to his kitchen. The Lobster Pot's specialities are, naturally, fish and seafood, however a selection of meat dishes are offered and vegetarians can be catered for. The famous 8-course Surprise Menu is always a hit and the splendid French wine list has something for everyone.

For the 5 of us we paid over £350. Was it worth it? No. The seafood was indeed fresh and cooked very well but service was lacking.
My dear mum changed her main from steak to fish and this atrocity warranted a visit from monsieur chef himself,...more
Don't arrive early or you'll be sorrier than a cracked crustacean's claw. Kitsch sticky menus needed a bit of explanation and if the menus change regularly (no oysters , but I'd rather they'd be off the menu than off in my stomach) then perhaps daily printed menus would work.
A delightfully decorative place complete with seagulls singing sea shanty classics on loop. Terrified but glorious...more
If you're looking for great, fresh seafood and a quirky dining experience, The Lobster Pot is a good choice. This small french restaurant in Kennington serves up fresh seafood from Billingsgate, and each dish is cooked with care and to perfection. There's also daily specials, with what's good from Billingsgate that day. Prices are a bit expensive, but you do get quality! Full review on The...more
My wife and I chose this place for our last dinner in London before heading back home to DFW. I had read about this restaurant in some top 10 lists for foodies visiting London and was dying to check it out.
First, it's not in the busy part of London where you would expect a restaurant of this caliber to be but rather it is in a very blue-collar neighborhood on the south side of London. It is...more
