friendly welcome , beautiful restaurant clean simple lines . Food good but we felt the portions were too small for the cost in particular potatoes and vegetables, not the most expensive items!

The Food & Service were outstanding, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We arrived too early and they fitted us in regardless. They gave us helpful tips of places to visit in the area and called a cab to take us back to the hotel. I would definitely go there again in the summer.

An excellent New Year’s Eve meal with friends. The food was delicious, and the service excellent as usual. A great choice of high quality wines. A perfect way to end 2019!

We did not like our table in the middle as we felt jostled on both sides by serving staff and also customers going to the toilet, bringing pushchairs past us etc. There was not enough space for our table and we found this uncomfortable and distracting. Everything else was good. Service, food, atmosphere all very enjoyable.

Fantastic, out of the way restaurant. Originally an old pub, but retains lots of the old features. Great food and wine list. Not cheap, but worth every penny. Friendly, attentive yet unobtrusive staff make for a lovely evening. Go!

My wife and I have been customers of the Crab and Lobster for years. We went for lunch with our daughter on Sunday and something was different, I had the loin of pork which was dry and a bit tough, the roast potatoes were so crispy I could not cut them let alone try to chew them!. I had to ask for my wine three times, the place was not so busy but sad to say we are not able to say that the lunch was perfect, far from it!!...Lets get the old fashioned service and lovely food back to what it was...Come on Crab and Lobster team buck up.

All the food the three of us ate on Christmas Day was outstanding. All the meat was impeccably cooked and the sauces well made and extremely tasty. The service was friendly and attentive.

Christmas Day, and the second time we have had our Christmas lunch at the Crab and Lobster. A warm welcome, a terrific atmosphere, and excellent food. When circumstances mean you can't be with your family on this special occasion, the Crab and Lobster experience is second to none - we were so fortunate to have found this place, whilst walking around Chichester Harbour, a few years ago. Many happy returns!

When we arrived, we couldn’t hear each other speak because there were so many people at the bar.. as it’s such a small pub I was surprised drinks were being served at the same time as dinner. I’ve been for Christmas lunch at much bigger pubs and they stopped bar service when Christmas lunch started. For the price we paid, it would have been nice to have a family conversation without shouting over the table. The main course wasn’t very hot either but the starters and deserts were delicious. I’ve had so many wonderful meals at your establishment and we decided to treat ourselves this year by coming for our Christmas lunch, but left feeling somewhat of an afterthought..
