The Potted Lobster Bamburgh offers a unique and relaxed dining experience with a menu packed with fresh, locally sourced seafood. Quality is at the heart of everything we do, serving up simple yet delicious flavours using only the freshest ingredients sourced from around the coastline.



With 20 years of experience, we focus on fresh, local produce using simple ingredients to create mouthwatering dishes. Our head chef, Richard Sim, is extremely passionate about using ingredients from surrounding shores and farms, creating lasting partnerships to ensure only the best produce is used on our menu.



The Potted Lobster offers you a relaxed yet elegant dining experience whether it is in peak summer and you are enjoying a platter of langoustines with Rose wine in the sun or in the winter months you are tucked inside our atmospheric restaurant enjoying our latest specials, you are always guaranteed an unforgettable experience.



With the breath taking Bamburgh Castle as a backdrop, the village of Bamburgh truly is a magical place to visit. Named, as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Bamburgh hosts miles upon miles of white sandy beaches, postcard perfect cottages and quaint local shops to explore.
