STREET FOOD BEGINNINGS
BOB’s Lobster set out to challenge convention, stripping away white linen table cloths and serving up seafood extravagance curbside on paper plates. The concept was created by Rob and the team behind Bedales of Borough to inject a fun and memorable food pairing into the casual wine bar setting.
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.
