Captain's Table

Do you want an ‘ultra’ dining experience that delivers just that little bit extra?

Then you need to book The Captain’s Table at the Smoking Lobster.

With only 2 tables available per service, if you wish to come and enjoy a top evening’s dining whilst luxuriating in the ambience provided between the crisp white linen and the finest uninterrupted views of Salcombe Estuary, then you and nine others in your party will have an experience that you’ll never forget.

From the canapés to begin your feast to the dessert to end it, you’ll be presented with the finest ingredients from scallops to Iberico jamon, crab and caviar, truffles, Champagne, asparagus, beef, and all will have been given the Jamie Rogers treatment, meaning you’ll have your eyes widening with delight at the flavour combinations.

At £180 per person, it’s definitely a luxury gastronomic occasion, but one you won’t regret.

This must be pre-booked and paid for in advance, so please email to discuss, and let us know of any wine or dietary requirements. We can always take care of an additional wine flight for you as well.



From Friday 21st July

Welcome to Smoking Lobster, not a crustacean with a penchant for Cuban cigars, but the newest foodie destination in Salcombe.

For Smoking Lobster is the new brainchild of popular and highly creative local chef, Jamie Rogers, of Twenty-Seven, Kingsbridge fame.

Basically, if it comes out of the sea, we’ll be preparing it and presenting it to you on a plate with all the signature twists of flavours and pizzazz that you’ve come to expect from Jamie.

We’re a pop-up casual seafood restaurant (don’t expect white table linen here) in the glorious setting of Cliff House in Salcombe, where the food will match the jaw-droppingly, stunning views across the harbour to East Portlemouth’s golden sandy beaches.

For three long, hot summer months (and maybe beyond …) we’re offering all-day dining, plus seafood barbecues and grab and go takeaway treats.

The name of the restaurant comes from our signature dish of smoked lobster accompanied by our dirty millionaire fries – the most luxurious, decadent fries you could wish to drool over – triple cooked with black garlic emulsion, aged Parmesan, and truffle shavings. Sitting alongside this offering on our menu, and using Jamie’s knowledge of the best local seafood, will be crab, scallops, squid, mussels, and any fish that’s brought in on the local day boats.

Also, when we say casual, we mean you can rock up in your flip-flops, still sandy and sun-kissed from the beach, or you can dress up to the nines – however you’re dressed you can sit out on the deck in front of Cliff House with the best views in Salcombe stretching out before you.

Watch the sun set, with a glass of something chilled in hand, and prepare to be fêted with mouth-watering seafood, cocktails, and chilled vibes of the musical sort.  Giving you the summer memories that last a lifetime.
