Every year we come to the Crab and Lobster during the Goodwood revival meeting. Food and service is always excellent. Good job from kitchen team and servants!

We have had excellent meals here before, but on this occasion, sitting outside, we found the service slow, but our main problem was the food. The style seems to have moved towards elaborate presentation, with less quantity. After three courses we were all still hungry. My skate wing was a rather small portion so the bones were a bigger proportion. We invited two guests hoping they would be impressed, but unfortunately the opposite was the case. A shame, because it has been good in the past, and is a little pricey.

only comments i could possibly dig up are the lunchtime set menu on thursday was a bit difficult to pick 3 courses i liked. the fish stew i thought would no doubt be brilliant but with 4 chioces for mains i would have gone for something else. nit picking really as its the only place ive ever been in Britain where i would bet a months wages that it would always be excellent

Two exceptional main course meals, and this time we sampled a desert as usually have starters, leaving us too full. The desert was also amazing, we will have the same coffee desert again!

We were very disappointed with our visit. Choices on menu had ran out, it was only 1.30 and to have ran out of Sunday roast on a Sunday, poor show. We were seated for 1hr 20 before we got our meal. Two out of the four meals we ordered were of poor quality and not value for money. We did complain and my husbands meal was deducted from bill. It was a shame because we had come for my husbands birthday

We visited the C&L for my mum's 80th, a place she used to go as a youngster. We absolutely loved it! The food was astounding although granted a bit pricey and the service was brilliant. We will be returning and thoroughly enjoyed our special meal. It's all the experience!
