The Tale Of a Little Boy and a Lobster
This week we have been away on Anglesey, I’ve talked before about how much we love Anglesey and I will share some more photos from our time there but first I need to tell you The Tale Of a Little Boy and a Lobster.
As a special end of holiday treat we visited the Lobster Pot, a seafood restaurant that we had read was worth a visit. After a journey down steep, twisting country roads we found the Lobster Pot, it conveniently has a public car park just opposite or on road parking just outside. We got there just as they opened and were the first customers of the day. After ordering a drink we had free reign of the bar area whilst we waited for our table. The kids and Daddy Ramblings enjoyed looking at the educational posters of different types of fish, lobsters and crabs.
We started perusing the menus and reading the children’s options out for the kids to choose. I joking told C that he could choose lobster (a half lobster served with chips and peas) fully expecting him to reject it and opt for his favourite, fish and chips. But he instantly said he wanted lobster. Believing he would genuinely not like it we tried to deter him but he wasn’t for moving. “But I like to try things now Daddy and I really really really need to have lobster” he said. So we agreed he could have lobster still thinking that he wouldn’t like it but that he could share his sisters fish and chips if he didn’t. He was really excited about the prospect of his lobster dinner….
His excitement only grew when his dinner arrived…..
The verdict? He loved it! He polished off about half of his dinner and about half of his sisters fish too! Not too bad for a first attempt!
Daddy Ramblings also got lobster, his was a little bit bigger!
I chose the special of the day which was a delicious Anglesey Seabass served with butterflied king prawns and a rich Lobster sauce. After lunch we headed into the lobster tanks to see some live lobster. The great thing about the Lobster Pot is that they also own a shellfish distribution company that ships lobsters and crabs worldwide so you get amazing quality fresh seafood and you can see their live buddies too. Daddy Ramblings got to hold a huge lobster!
If you are on Anglesey and fancy some really good seafood then you need to pay the Lobster Pot a visit, the menu is extensive and the seafood was fresh and delicious!
