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.
Very expensive, ran out of Sunday roasts by 2.30pm, Alternatives limited , food very salty , tables to close together. Very disappointing lunch experience especially considering price .
Lovely place. Really glad we had lunch there. Staff were very welcoming and made us feel relaxed. Food was top notch!
Fist time we have visited and booked to try the winter warmer, it was the best fish pie I’ve ever had, we all thoroughly enjoyed it. We then booked for Boxing Day. The feel of the restaurant is cosy and the staff we so lovely, very helpful and so polite. Thank you for a wonderful evening. Looking forward to Boxing Day.
Mark and Lorraine are always fantastic! Food is great, especially the set lunch. Would be good to have vegan options on that menu. We have two holiday lets, and we always recommend here. It would be good if our guests could be given a discount to encourage them. www.seafrontholiday.co.uk
Memorable evening for younger son's 21st dinner. Truly excellent food and service. Thank you.
Food and service always top quality at the Crab and Lobster. Customers are made to feel welcome and important. Well done team.
Eight of us had a fabulous lunch despite our ninth (the birthday girl) not being able to make it at the last minute. The booking process was very efficient (we had several specific requests due to disability and the birthday) which was so appreciated, and we will certainly return as a group of nine as soon as. Thank you.
Wonderful food and wine, fabulous staff, lovely environment
A super evening, thanks!
Great food, lovely decor.
Absolutely love staying here. The cottage accommodation is lovely, cosy, warm and has everything you need. The food is delicious, cooked to perfection, all of the staff are friendly, polite and so helpful, nothing is too much trouble. And Mark is the perfect host, again, nothing is too much trouble, and quite funny! I don’t think you could improve. Thanks for another lovely stay.
Birthday treat. Fulfilled all expectations, this our 4th time visiting, the food was exceptional, the staff friendly knowledgeable and very attentive. We will certainly be returning.
We loved visiting the crab and lobster for the first time! Great wine, amazing food, great service 👍🏻 We’re looking forward to coming back in the summer when we return to Sussex!
Only disappointment was the Halibut was the end of the tail, so thought it was expensive for the small portion. Loved the rest of the meal in particular the Cauliflower and caraway soup.
superb place to stay and eat!
Absolutely excellent experience. My first visit on recommendation. Certainly worth the 25 mile trip. Outstanding in every way. I shall return. Imaginative menu beautifully executed. Staff charming.
We took my Dad, who has just turned 100. We had a most enjoyable meal. The food was delicious and the service was excellent, attentive without being intrusive. (and Dad was delighted with the facilities - no stairs and short walk to the disabled bathroom)
The food was Fantastic, Service was good
Lovely location and the locally sourced produce and attention to detail makes for a great meal. We thought it was very reasonably priced for the quality of the food and service.
The piped music was a real nuisance in the end. Constantly boring and mediocre, it spoiled the otherwise lovely atmosphere.. You will realise that it became more of a focus than the food - shame!
Fantastic place. Great food and the staff were excellent. Went with family and a 4-month old baby. The change facilities were the best i've seen so far and the staff were so friendly towards him. Can't fault this experience.
Delicious food and excellent service, lovely place to celebrate a special occasion
The food was exceptional, both in its presentation and taste. Perfect combinations of locally sourced produce, beautifully brought to the plate. Fabulous, friendly, welcoming service. This place is not cheap, but the quality of the experience is such that it should not be.
The restaurant didn't let us down...fantastic food. Slightly disappointed 2 of the drinks my father ordered had run out but it didn't ruin the evening!
