Wanda reviews Lobster House, Putney

Wandsworth Guardian: 1.25 pounder steamed lobster 1.25 pounder steamed lobster

New riverside restaurant Lobster House is adding a touch of class to Wandsworth.

And by now you should know I am a classy lady so I was there within a flash a week after it's opening.

The restaurant is located in the Point Pleasant development, formerly The Ferm, just east of Wandsworth Park by the Thames.

Indicated by the name, Lobster House specialises in seafood and champagne by the glass or bottle.

Large windows in the dining room enable diners to look out onto the river, with a casual vibe downstairs and more formal dining on the first floor.

Wandsworth Guardian:

A pontoon bar is located at the back of the venue, which I can see getting very busy once the weather improves.

Despite all the elegance, the prices really are quite reasonable, with my glass of prosecco costing £5.50.

Wandsworth Guardian:

Not bad for a glass of bubbles in a prime location next to the river.

The menu features twists to classic dishes such as lobster rolls, clam chowder and seafood casserole with burgers and ribs for meat eaters.

For starter I opt for smoked salmon, which comes in a delicate portion with salad and rocket.

It was fresh and succulent, with a subtle smoked flavour.

Wandsworth Guardian:

My guest tucked into a bowl of steamed mussels in a traditional white wine sauce, served with a generous selection of bread rolls.

I chose the spécialité de la maison for my main course - a 1.25 pounder steamed lobster.

Diners could also tuck into a 1.50 pounder or huge 2 pounder, goodness knows how large they would be as the 1.25 pounder was gigantic.

Leave your table manners at home as you are left to your own devices to crack it open, armed only with seafood picks and crackers.

The lobster was quality, with huge chunks of juicy fish inside the claws with a delicious butter sauce complimenting the dish.

For only £20 for such a huge lobster is quite a bargain and a real treat.

I'm looking forward to coming back in summer, but I reckon booking will be necessary as I can see this place getting very busy.
