About The Crab & Lobster
Nestling on the banks of Pagham Harbour Nature Reserve the 350 year old Crab & Lobster has been renovated creating one of the most stunning hideaways on the South Coast. Just a ten-minute drive from Chichester and its cultural, architectural and retail charms, at the Crab & Lobster exceptional service and relaxed style await you.
The restaurant successfully combines excellent service and presentation, stylish décor and friendly ambience with food of the highest quality.
Where possible, the menu is sourced from local producers – Selsey fishermen and neighbouring dairy farmers.
With an adventurous emphasis on fresh fish and of course crab and lobster! There are also traditional English and Mediterranean dishes to tempt the taste buds and thrill the palate.
We've been here many times before and always enjoyed the food and service, this time however we were very disappointed, the service was poor bordering on rude, and the food was very average, the Crab Thermidor was not good at all. No one asked us how the food was and we felt like we were very unwelcome and an inconvenience to the staff. couldn't wait to leave! sorry but we wont be returning!
Great hosts, great food, great atmosphere & great location - 4 reasons why we keep going back.
Lovely place. Friendly staff. Good food, beautifully presented. Will go again!
Lovely pub, delicious food 😁

Second visit to the Crab and Lobster and both times it has been excellent. Apart from the food of course which is delicious, what impresses is the ambience. Calm, unhurried and welcoming with jazz quietly playing in the background in contrast with the noise and bustle of so many other restaurants nowadays.Thank you for a lovely Sunday afternoon out.
Crab and Lobster always cater for us being Coeliac. The food was absolutely excellent as usual. Thank you.
Truly excellent cooking. Our seafood ravioli and risotto were perfectly prepared and presented. Delicious. Will come back in summer to explore the marshes when it is less cold!
Lovely stay and food was delicious. Staff very friendly and helpful.
Another excellent luncheon at the Crab and Lobster. Could not fault the service or the preparation of the meal - we had 3 main courses between the four of us, and all were delicious. The Specials were indeed very special. We love the relaxed atmosphere and the feeling that this is a local restaurant yet, at its best, one capable of producing Michelin Star quality food.
Absolutely delicious and wonderful service, a rarity to find both. Eleven of us enjoyed a special family lunch together- just perfect thank you!
Always an excellent dining experience
Great staff. So glad we’ve been back . Can’t wait till next time
The service and food was excellent and even though we were asking for various alterations to the menu you were very obliging. Thank you.
Perfect as always
Very enjoyable celebratory meal, with a special place in the snug as we had one guest who is hard of hearing. Thank you
The food was excellent and the staff were great. The room they provided for us was perfect.
The Christmas Day lunch, was very well organised, and presented. And the chef, and those behind the scenes, should be congratulated..... "BUT", the crackers on the table,left alot to be desired!!!!! Absolutely disappointing.(Don't spoil the ship for a haporth of tar) so the saying goes.
Excellent food and service
Great dining experience as ever
Came here for lunch and it was perfect. We have been to the Crab and Lobster before but each time I am blown away by how beautiful the area is, what a lovely cosy pub it is and what amazing food they serve. Also good to try some local (Chichester) English sparkling wine.
Lovely pre Christmas lunch. Great atmosphere. Food, wine and service all excellent.
Food and service was amazing yet again!!!!
The Festive Menu was good value. Soup was wonderful. Did miss roast potatoes, but otherwise really enjoyed the meal.
Wonderful meal in delightful setting thoroughly recommended
