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.
Starters and mains were great and definitely 5 stars, desserts not quite as good, but if there was a 4.5 star rating I would have given that. I would definitely recommend the restaurant.
Great service under difficult circumstances Many thanks
I love your food and the fact that everyone who works there seems passionate about it too , as well as the exceptional wines. At a time when it’s noticeable that pubs and restaurants are cutting corners, it’s hugely refreshing to see that your place is still as high quality as ever. Always a real treat. Thank you!!!!
Amazing service. Very friendly. Lovely food. Couldn’t ask for anything more.
Excellent as always. Very professional response to the current conditions. Puts other local competitors in the shade.
Superb ! Fabulous food, atmosphere & service. Went there to celebrate my husband’s 50th birthday & did not disappoint. Would definitely return.
Excellent meal, terrific service in a lovely setting - what more could one want?
Great food attentive staff first class
Social distancing was obvious but very well handled. Great staff and atmosphere and the food fantastic. My friend loves sea food which is why we returned but I am vegetarian and there was only one choice but it was delicious.
Really good job of coping with the current constraints - sensible and pragmatic. Food and service, as usual, was excellent.
This was our first time venturing out to a restaurant post lock down and the Crab & Lobster have done a great job at keeping everyone safe. And the food was delicious and service excellent!
I would come back to stay in a heart beat
The staff were helpful and kind the food was delicious
A great meal again and we thought you managed hygiene abd safety measures so well.
Love the restaurant - have taken friends and family at least 5 times but have to say it’s a’treat’ restaurant ie fine dining so it’s usually twice a year when staying in the area
Gorgeous location and stunning food. We had 3 courses and every single one was exceptional. Staff very friendly upon entry and service.
Everything was great. I suggest though that the portions be larger. The chips and veg were very generous but the starter, main course fish and cheese portions were too small. Hence only 4 stars for value for money. Nouveau cuisine is surely passe nowadays.
The Crab & Lobster never disappoints and one of our guests was even allowed to go off piste and have a paella which is normally only served at weekday lunchtimes.
We’ve been to the Crab & Lobster many times over the years. It’s a beautiful restaurant with great food and wonderful service.
We had a lovely birthday lunch - food was excellent, service was attentive and ambience was as good as could be expected with reduced tables inside. The team even managed to spot that it was a birthday and gave a suitably decorated pudding plate to the lucky girl! Dix points! We shall return - regularly.
Service was excellent, atmosphere was great. My partner ordered the steak for main and unfortunately it wasn’t good. However, my main of fish was lovely.
Lovely food and friendly servers!!
Flavoursome food & ales. Twists on traditional foods, much enjoyed by all my guests. One of the guests had a certain diet requirement which was considered by the restaurant with thanks. I Defernately would recommend the friendly staff at the Crab & Lobster on the Pagham Harbour of West Sussex.
