The noisy lobster on Avon Beach serves excellent fish & chips. The secret is to serve the dish immediately it is cooked. With so many restaurants failing this simple task, it's great to visit a restaurant where they achieve this. The restaurant serves a range of tradition food, with beer and wine. There is a nice view of the sea.... More

Didnt take bookings but were very helpful with timings and how busy it was likely to be etc. When we returned (in full force with 4 kids and 4... More

Best Fish & Chips ever, good atmosphere, good service - good experience. The restaurant obviously has a good reputation as it was constantly busy and near capacity.

We went on Valentine's, but I had trouble with Veggie options, so I spoke to the lovely Lady, over the phone, and they register the menu for me to deal with my allergies.. When we arrived, they knew all about us, and our meal was served swiftly, with a friendly happy member of staff. The food was..... DELISH ......with 6... More

We have been to the Noisy Lobster so many times for snacks, lunch, coffee, evening meals, celebrations etc and have always found the staff helpful. This time around we arrived at lunchtime on a sunny but very cold windy day and, although crowded, got a window seat. We treated ourselves on our anniversary to a bottle of rosé and the... More

We went with a large group of friends for breakfast. Right by the sea makes for good eye candy. It's clean and bright with well trained staff. Service and choice of dishes is excellent.

Our first visit to the Noisy Lobster was for breakfast and a welcome retreat from the blowing gales outside. Its a lovely place, great interior decor, really pleasant atmosphere. It clearly gets very busy and they often had queues of people outside waiting for a table to become free so we were grateful to be led to the bar area... More

February, just about the worst month to visit the seaside freezing cold,biting wind and flying sand ... What a trio. So a visit to the noisy lobster was the order of the day. Very friendly,quick and professional staff and delicious good quality food makes you forget the weather in an instant..... Until you leave. A gem on a cold day... More
