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.
The food is always delicious, interesting and beautifully served. And the staff and service are outstanding.
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.
We were made to feel so welcome and our room was delightful. Supper was superb and all in all a lovely stay. Will definitely be going back.
Excellent food, great atmosphere and very friendly staff - I am looking forward to my next visit.
Great meal, ok a little more expensive than other local places but so worth it.
Simply one the best ! The C&L never fails to deliver
Another fantastic stay at the Crab this weekend. Great food and wonderful service, must be a reason why we have been staying here for the past 10+ years. Look forward to coming back again in the spring. Thankyou Mark and team, excellent as always D
We love this place
Very nice and wonderful food
The loveliest place with the best Maitre D. We come away feeling cared for. A pearl. Thank you. Luce, Mum and Dad. X
Excellent meal and visit with friends
My Favourite restaurant in the uk
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
A wonderful experience. A lovely room, unbelievable food and great choice of wines. Thank you for an amazing break.
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!
A friendly local serving very good food. Well done Lauren and team for providing a good wholesome worthwhile meal at lunchtime and a great location.
A warm welcome, fine good, perfect scallops, and a very good room
Always excellent, I recommend to everyone
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
Great, staff,place, food wonderful Perfect evening Thank you
Good value set menu. Plenty of staff.
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!
A very enjoyable meal, thank you. Lovely waitresses.
