At Designstack, we are dedicated to creating exceptional websites for our clients. We’re excited to present our recent project in our portfolio, the website design for “The Lobster Pot” restaurant. This renowned establishment, run by the same family for over 70 years, is located next to the iconic Portland Bill lighthouse, nestled in the heart of Dorset’s World Heritage Jurassic Coast. It is just a short drive from Weymouth and a mere ten minutes away from the Olympic sailing venue at Portland Harbour.


Client Overview:

“The Lobster Pot” holds a unique and cherished place in the hearts of its patrons. With a tradition spanning over seven decades, it stands as a testament to both time-honored excellence and a commitment to preserving the beauty of Dorset’s coastal heritage. Situated at a prime location along the Jurassic Coast, this restaurant is a celebrated destination for locals and tourists alike.


Platform and Tools Used

In the creation of “The Lobster Pot” website, we employed WordPress as the platform and harnessed the versatile features of Elementor as the website builder. This strategic choice allowed us to combine the robustness of WordPress with the intuitive design capabilities of Elementor, resulting in a website that not only captures the essence of this historic establishment but also ensures a user-friendly experience.


Project Highlights

1. Emphasizing Tradition and Heritage

Our primary focus was on showcasing the rich tradition and heritage of “The Lobster Pot.” We wanted to convey the essence of the restaurant, which had been in the same family for over 70 years. By incorporating elements of history, storytelling, and imagery, we highlighted the deep-rooted traditions of this iconic eatery. This not only connects with long-time patrons but also intrigues newcomers with its historical significance.

2. Streamlined User Journey

To make the user experience as straightforward as possible, we simplified the journey for visitors to the website. By optimizing the navigation, we ensured that users could easily find the information they were looking for, whether it was the restaurant’s history, menu, location, or contact details. The challenge was to create an interface that was both engaging and user-friendly, which we successfully achieved through thoughtful design.

3. Menu Categorization and Gift Voucher System

We categorized the restaurant’s menu, making it easier for visitors to explore the culinary offerings. Additionally, we implemented a user-friendly system for purchasing gift vouchers. These features aimed to enhance the accessibility of the restaurant’s offerings and provide a seamless experience for customers interested in purchasing vouchers or planning their dining experience.

Our collaboration with “The Lobster Pot” has significantly impacted their online presence and business operations. The website we designed not only reflects the history and traditions of the restaurant but also ensures a seamless user experience, encouraging customers to explore the menu and even purchase gift vouchers online.
