BOB’s Lobster launched in July 2013 as a street food and wine truck, getting their start trading in the evening time at Borough Market. BOB’s Lobster’s street food van has been listed amongst their many other accolades as one of the top 5 restaurant concepts in the world (The Manual), one of Mr. Porter’s ‘Seven of the Best Food Trucks’, one of the ‘Best Pop-Ups’ (Yelp!), included within the ‘Quest for the Best Lobster Roll’ (Rebecca Seal, ES Magazine) and listed on Buzzfeed’s list of ‘London Street Foods You Must Eat Before you Die’. Whilst the original 1957 VW Split-Screen Camper Van will be parked up in the new Wine Bar & Kitchen, BOB’s Lobster has another 1950s ‘Splitty’ that will continue to be seen on the street and at festivals. Rob Dann, Jamie Watts and Stephanie Flanagan form the independent management team that took over the three Bedales of Borough wine bar spaces in 2012 and launched BOB’s Lobster in 2013.

Lovely place but incredibly overpriced. £20 for the Lobster and Shrimp burger which was a few pieces of lobster and shrimp in a very small brioche roll. Chips were delicious but again a small portion for £4. Probably won't be returning.

We experienced a very positive and "happy" service. The quality and the variety of the food though, was below expectations. I believe Thay have to reconsider the catalog and some of the plates

We were a table of 12 with a mix of dietary requirements (Vegan, Vegetarian, Dairy Free, Gluten Free). The menu offered good options and the chef could also make modifications when necessary. No one felt like an after thought. The signature dishes went down a treat with the seafood lovers, Lobster Roll, Lobster Mac n Cheese and Tuna Tacos but I rather give a special mention to the other delightful surprises.

Oyster Mushroom Ceviche and cauliflower were very delicate side dishes bursting with flavours such as agave, ginger and lime salsa. Aubergine Parm - hearty vegetarian burger (requested dairy free bun)

Choc Brownie was perfectly gooey and the Bread and Butter pudding don't get me started. Wow. (I don't even like B&B pudding)

Excellent sharing menu, Wash down with a Bob Martini or Margarita. Well stocked bar and extensive wine list if needed. Good music playlist.

I love BOBs. I’ve loved them since they did festivals in food trailer now parked fetchingly under London Bridge Arches with a full bar and a bright, cozy diner feel. The lobster roll is LOVELY and the chowder fries will have you waxing lyrical. The salmon avocado starter is the best I’ve ever had and I only started trying it elsewhere after trying it at BOBs. The service is super friendly and warm and the booze is reasonably priced. I’d recommend them to anyone, anytime with the clink of a decent Dirty Martini.

Disappointing experience, had the Poboy and Lobster roll, for the price 4 prawns and a 3 inch roll wasn’t a ‘large’ plate. Taste was ok, but not exceptional, sorry but didn’t get the hype.
