Went to Burger & Lobster for lunch after xmas but before New Year, always a quiet time to dine out anywhere. We were one of only another couple, which wasnt a problem for us. A we wanted was a quick pit stop meal. Upon first impressions i was a bit dissapointed by the somewhat bland looking interior, though maybe this was just because the restaurant was lacking atmosphere at the time, being near empty. However, they were also experiencing some warping of their floors which actually made it difficult to walk through the restaurant without losing ones footing, despite some coloured tape being in place to mark the warped floor boards.
We initially sat at a corner booth but the table was too wonky and due to metal studs attaching the seating to the floor we could not find a good place to move the table. Eventually giving up we moved to a non corner booth. Better.
I have no complaints about the service, it was perfectly plesent. The food however i was a little dissapointed with. We both opted for the Lobster (a £18-20 burger seems a little steep and we'd only come for the Lobster). The lobster arrives on a platter with fried a small side salad and some melted butter. The Lobster itself is naturally good value with a whole lobster offered for £20 either a choice of having it steamed or grilled. We both opted for grilled. How quaint! I have to say that my lobster was a very watery and i felt this ruined the taste. I also felt the side salad was rather small. I was left still hunger after my meal sadly.
Another point that i have to make is that the platter is served on a metal tray and on this tray is a logo'd paper tyoe thing. Utterly useless. As you cut through the lobster and put ketchup on it for the chips the paper disintergrates so you end up eating some of it. Pointless. A plastic material (like the bibs) would have been batter.
I would go again if i had a lobster craving but i would ask them to cook it longer and get rid of the annoying paper thing!
