We've been here many times before and always enjoyed the food and service, this time however we were very disappointed, the service was poor bordering on rude, and the food was very average, the Crab Thermidor was not good at all. No one asked us how the food was and we felt like we were very unwelcome and an inconvenience to the staff. couldn't wait to leave! sorry but we wont be returning!

Second visit to the Crab and Lobster and both times it has been excellent. Apart from the food of course which is delicious, what impresses is the ambience. Calm, unhurried and welcoming with jazz quietly playing in the background in contrast with the noise and bustle of so many other restaurants nowadays.Thank you for a lovely Sunday afternoon out.

Truly excellent cooking. Our seafood ravioli and risotto were perfectly prepared and presented. Delicious. Will come back in summer to explore the marshes when it is less cold!

Another excellent luncheon at the Crab and Lobster. Could not fault the service or the preparation of the meal - we had 3 main courses between the four of us, and all were delicious. The Specials were indeed very special. We love the relaxed atmosphere and the feeling that this is a local restaurant yet, at its best, one capable of producing Michelin Star quality food.

The Christmas Day lunch, was very well organised, and presented. And the chef, and those behind the scenes, should be congratulated..... "BUT", the crackers on the table,left alot to be desired!!!!! Absolutely disappointing.(Don't spoil the ship for a haporth of tar) so the saying goes.

Came here for lunch and it was perfect. We have been to the Crab and Lobster before but each time I am blown away by how beautiful the area is, what a lovely cosy pub it is and what amazing food they serve. Also good to try some local (Chichester) English sparkling wine.
