We booked this based on other reviews & were not disappointed. The booking process was easy and was COVID secure, good space between tables. We visited a little 'out of season' to be sitting outside, so it was cold. There were heaters and plastic screens though. There was a good selection of food and some 'theatre' with the whole crab, a hammer and branded 'bib'. Made for some good photos. Food was delicious and I would highly recommend.

We sat in the outside heated area. It was a windy day and we were cold despite having coats on so do wrap up warm in the autumn and winter. However the food and service warmed us up and we had a very delicious meal. I look forward to coming back in the spring!

As always we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We were disappointed at the absence of gurnard from the menu but appreciate it's catch dependent. The oysters and hake were superb. I was less impressed with the Eton Mess dessert, which seemed rather bland. My husband enjoyed his tandoori fish dish, with the exception of the poppadoms. Overall an excellent lunch as always, thank you.

Amazing venue and setting Staff were attentive and friendly Food was delicious. The only negative, which didn't affect us directly, was that i could see quite a few flies in the tank room where meat was being prepared for the sister restaurant.

Love the Crab Cafe. We live in Swindon, and try to come down at least once a year. We always book your restaurant, whenever we are here. Sort of regular customers, over the years! So glad we go in before lockdown Judy Beaton

We had a beautiful meal, great service as always from the lovely staff, and a visit to our table from Chef Nigel was so nice. Looking forward to dining there next year now!

Booked for a birthday lunch, just literally before lockdown on Halloween 🎃 day. Even the pumpkins were wearing face coverings! Had the table we requested online, which was seated on the high outdoor benches, just perfect & really cosy. The lunch as usual was amazing. We shared the Scallops and the fish Bhaji to start, followed by the Hake with Pesto & a side of samphire. Absolutely spot on, delicious., with a bottle of reasonably priced Sauvignon Blanc. We finished with my husband having the Dorset Apple cake with caramelised pears, which he said was the best. I had the Frangipani tart, light & delicious. Stunning food in a stunning location overlooking the Fleet & Oyster Farm. Can’t wait to come again, after lockdown

Highly recommended and worth the visit (speaking after a 2 hour drive in the rain!). Good standard of food and very high level of service given how busy they were. Our visit was a dark and wet autumn evening but we plan to revisit in early summer. Desserts were as good as the main courses
