The Lobster Pot Cowplain is a Fish & Chip Shop located opposite The Spotted Cow pub on the A3. This takeaway has been located here for as long as I can remember.
There were no nearby rivals for The Lobster Pot until Banks Fish and Chip shop opened a new take away in November 2012. Banks Fish and Chip shop is located in the former HSBC Bank unit which is on the main parade of Cowplain shops.
In October 2014 we visited and reviewed Banks Fish & Chips in Cowplain and the blog post elicited some interesting comments.
It seemed only fair to review The Lobster Pot under similar conditions, and to try to put an end to the debate, which is the best chippie?
So over the Christmas Holidays my wife and our youngest son travelled to Cowplain to pick up an order of cod and chips to feed two hungry adults and three hungry children.
The staff at The Lobster Pot were friendly and welcoming, and gave our son a lollipop whilst the order was prepared. We also got a thank you, a goodbye and a smile when the the order was handed over.
We ordered three large cod with three large portions chips. The photo below is one portion of the order. The food was cooked freshly for us and was piping hot.
Our boys said the food was delicious, as you can see from the photo below they are raring to get stuck in.
We shared the takeaway meal between the five of us, and we struggled to eat all of it.
Both the fish and the chips were great. There is nothing to complain about, everything tasted exactly as it should. We also found the prices to be competitive. There is no question that we’ll visit again.
Our only complaint is that The Lobster Pot does not have a website or any social media. Even an inexpensive website is better than no website at all. There is nothing more irritating than wanting to visit a shop, takeaway, pub or venue to be completely in the dark as to the opening and serving times.
At the time of writing the opening times at The Lobster Pot are:
So which is the best Cowplain Fish and Chip shop? Well there are a few more to takeaways to visit, and perhaps we’ll get around to these later this year.
