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.
Super,restful backed by excellent food.
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.
Never fails to exceed our needs.
Always friendly staff and made to feel welcome. Excellent food and good wine. Love this place
Amazing food, lovely greeting from the maitre d, fab atmosphere. We would be there way too often if we were local.
Thanks for the jelly beans! Much appreciated.
The place is just perfect!
Always a pleasure to return for good food, good service and great atmosphere. Mark always looks after us and makes the visit a truly memorable experience. The friends who accompanied us this Revival were impressed. Thank you once again.
Perfect! We stumbled upon the Crab & Lobster and what a treat it was. Perfect service level, incredible food & relaxed cozy atmosphere
Lovely evening - great food for meat eater and vegetarian which is rare.
Have been wanting to come for a while and it certainly didn’t disappoint. The food and service were both excellent. Will definitely be back.
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.
A friendly and relaxing place for any occasion. There's a welcoming atmosphere and the food and wine are great.
It gave much pleasure to me & my wife to celebrate heer recovery from a stroke. hope we will do it all again soon.
An excellent dining experience, with considerate and courteous staff
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
Lovely food and featuring great service. The team were incredibly accommodating of our requests. Thank you!!
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.!
A very noisy family close to us - can’t be helped though.
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!
Fab place . Lovely food and great service
A fabulous Sunday lunch. Perfect in every way!.
Amazing food, I think the best crab I ever had. Busy but with great friendly staff.
Great meal beautifully presented
