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.

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!!!!

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!

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

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 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.

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.
