Tuesday, January 24, 2012 - With the lobster roll, which was a very generously stuffed, heaven-sent buttery brioche, my (also American) companion and me looked at each other and said: 'It's good. It's good. But it doesn't taste that much like lobster.' Just why remains a mystery, but at 20 quid, you're getting good value - especially as it all comes with chips and a rather sexy pot of salad. The question of the burger's price tag is resolved, to some degree, by its quality and weight: all grass-fed Irish and corn-fed Nebraskan beef, sans filler, each weighs 10oz. It's a lovely burger, and should be, given its price.

TimeOut

Charmaine Mok - 4/5

Tuesday, January 17, 2012 - The whole lobster (fat, juicy creatures from Canada) can be ordered steamed, or steamed then finished off on the robata-style charcoal grill; we recommend the latter, as the subtle smokiness really emphasises the sweetness of the lobster. Can't decide between plain clarified butter or butter jazzed up with lemon? Alternate your unbridled dunking and order both, as our waitress insisted...This is an easy-going sort of place, so if you're wanting the burger (a whole ten ounces of pure, freshly ground beef) with cheddar and/or bacon you can have it for no extra charge. Go for it - the smoky bacon is snappy and crisp without being dry, the cheese adding an extra indulgent tang.

Saturday, March 31, 2012 - The lobster came with crunchy greaseless chips, a wonderfully dressed salad, and the ambrosia quality of the lemon and garlic butter. The crustacean, first steamed and finally grilled was outstanding. It was delectably sweet, fresh and generously large (it must have taken the poor so and so at least four to five years to reach the size). And to think, there I am gloating about this magnificent beast and it wasn't even native but Nova Scotian.

Cheese and Biscuits

Cheese and Biscuits - 10/10

Monday, January 16, 2012 - The burger is rich and bloody, the umami hit of the aged beef strengthened with (so it's rumoured) a splash of Thai fish sauce, though not enough to be distracting. The lobster steamed or grilled (your choice) to perfection, presented in neat halves so you have all the joy of extracting the sweet claws and meaty tail section for yourselves. And the roll, with its sweet toasted brioche bun and carefully balanced lobster meat and mayonnaise filling, is a thing of wonder too, packed with silky fresh seafood and perfect dipped in the lemon herb butter. Even the fries are fantastic - golden and crunchy, aggressively seasoned and generously numerous.
