Decided to treat ourselves to a Sunday lunch on the last day of our holiday and chose this restaurant where we haven't been for quite a while. It is in a lovely area and whether you are out walking with your dog and want a sandwich or A la carte for lunch and dinner it's the perfect place. We ate in the garden which was very pleasant with a choice of tables in the sun or shade. We chose starter, main and dessert from the A la carte menu and the food was excellent and so was the service. The food is a bit pricey but would definitely recommend this restaurant and we will return but for special occasions.

Every member of the staff is pleasant,helpful,well briefed and trained.They go beyond just doing a job. The food and service is excellent.It is unrushed and careing. Those customers who are unaccustomed to this are in for either a nasty shock or a really good experience. Please do not change your ethos one bit.Thank you.

Visited Crab and Lobster for a family Sunday lunch. Good food, with good standard of service even though they were busy. Would like to sit outside next time.

If you are going be a big party make sure you pre order. There was 16 in my group and when booked they asked us to pre order. Nearer the date I called for menus and informed all would be good and no need to pre order. The service was slow and confusing. Some of us had finished before others got there meal. We were there for a special engagement and would have liked to eat altogether

SLIGHTLY DISAPPOINTING ON FOOD- FELT ON ENTREES AND MAINS THE SERVINGS WERE VERY SMALL SIZED- SALT AND PEPPER BARELY 8/10 PIECES OF SOMETHING THATS NORMALLY A GENEROUS SERVE- FOR 9 POUNDS !!AND ABLE TO BE SHARED! SERVING ON A LARGE STONEWARE PLATES ONLY EMPHASISED THE PETIT SERVE. NOT AN EXPENSIVE ITEM TO BUY BY THE KILO! LIKEWISE FISH OF THE DAY - ONLY ONE MEDIUM PIECE OF FISH- THEN JOHH DORY SMALL AND VERY SMALL PIECES. 20+ POUNDS + EXTRA CHIPS NOT TO WRITE HOME ABOUT- JUST VERY HOT. SERVICE GOOD. BUT WHO WOULD KNOW THERES NO LOBSTER ON MENU UNTIL THE WEEKENDS! RESTAURANT WAS FULL SO PLENTY OF CUSTOMERS TO ORDER IT. OUR NIGHT WAS MORE LIKE CRAB AND FISH NIGHT. FOR VALUE AND GOOD FOOD - AL CARTE OR MENU CANT BEAT COTE BRASSERIE WHEREVER. HALF THE COST OF LAST NIGHT!! 90 POUNDS !! EVEN SLOANE SQ THE COLBERT SAME PRICE AS THIS! PROFESSIONAL STAFF TO BOOT.. SORRY BUT NOT GOOD NIGHT FOR US. GOOD FOR LOCALS - BUT NOT WORTH A DRIVE OR DETOUR FOR US ESPECIALLY WITH ROAD WORKS ON TURN OFF A 27 HOLD UP.. NIGHTMARE OF BLOCKED ROUNDABOUTS. TEMPERS.!

Thought the location, décor was lovely. While the food was nice I thought the cost for the portion size was very expensive and the young waitress did not fill me with confidence when I was informing her of my allergies to certain ingredients and was checking if they were in the food. The cost would put me of returning again soon!
