Dear Valued Customers

The ‘Perfect Christmas Gift’ voucher promotion that was available for purchase in December 2019, was designed, sold and intended for inhouse dining only.
At the time of promoting and selling these vouchers, it was prior to the unforeseen Coronavirus outbreak. Since then, the Government has ordered for all restaurants to cease operating until further notice. It is for this reason that the Lobster Cave has developed and introduced a Take-Away and Home Delivery model, with the sole purpose of keeping our staff employed throughout the Coronavirus crisis. It is not financially sustainable for the Lobster Cave to honour the promotional ‘Perfect Christmas Gift’ vouchers with our temporary business model. As there is a three year validation period, we welcome all purchasers to redeem their vouchers once our restaurant is able to reopen for inhouse dining. Thank you for your understanding during this time.
