Incredibly disappointing. Booked for wedding anniversary dinner & also staying in rooms. Way Over priced. Food over-salted and staff unable to deal appropriately with raucous children running around noisily and kicking bench seat that I was also sitting on. Duty Manager nowhere to be seen. Young staff great when things going well but didn’t know how to deal with challenging situation. And only compensation was to knock off dish my husband didn’t eat..... really disappointed with GM response the next day. Sorry but Definitely could not recommend.

Love this place, so friendly and really excellent food. Now I know there is a garden and you are dog friendly I will be coming back sooner rather than later.

We always enjoy a meal at the Crab and Lobster...Super atmosphere, and delicious food. The staff are always friendly and attentive, and they were very accommodating when I made a crazy error when making the initial booking. Recommended.

Fantastic food and service and made even better by being a non smoking outside terrace. This is our 4th visit and never had a complaint. It’s a must if you are in the area.

We were made to feel so welcome at the Crab & Lobster. It was my husband's birthday and they were very kind and made the whole occasion feel special. Food and wine both absolutely delicious, a really varied and interesting menu and despite it being a drizzly summer day, we both said we would certainly come back very soon! Thank you!

We stayed at the Crab and Lobster for 2 nights, and invited friends to eat with each night to celebrate my wife's birthday. Every thing was perfect, our room, the food, the wine, the service and the atmosphere. All the staff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive. We have eaten there before and always enjoyed it, staying upstairs enhanced the experience. We will undoubtedly return.

Easy to book via ResDiary. We received a lovely warm welcome, shown to a nice positioned table, offered drinks and provided the menu's all with a few minutes of sitting down. Food was and service excellent.

Booked for our family's first Father's Day and I was greeted by name upon arrival. Not too many people for 6 pm dinners with a four month old baby, I suppose, but still a very nice touch. Service was so friendly and understood that the baby dictates how long dinner service can be. Food was beautifully plated and fish perfectly cooked. Wonderful dinner, if rushed (by us, not the staff). Best meal we had on our weekend in the Chichester Harbour area.

Excellent meal and great service. Everyone had a great time, especially the two members of our party celebrating their birthdays. Worth the 45 min drive!
