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.
Best Roast Beef Lunch in West Sussex - thank you!
Great food....attentive service....only one thing some sort of heating would have felt better...sitting down feet were cold...
Th to e meal was superb,with a great choice. I also felt that the customer service was excellent. We did not have to sit twiddling thumbs waiting for the next course and the staff were very attentive.
friendly welcome , beautiful restaurant clean simple lines . Food good but we felt the portions were too small for the cost in particular potatoes and vegetables, not the most expensive items!
The Food & Service were outstanding, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We arrived too early and they fitted us in regardless. They gave us helpful tips of places to visit in the area and called a cab to take us back to the hotel. I would definitely go there again in the summer.
Enjoyable meal. We'll do Everything! Thank you.
Excellent as always. Lovely food and atmosphere.
Consistently good food and service.
Great team of staff, clean and comfortable accommodation. Delicious food in the restaurant and great atmosphere. Thank you The Crab and Lobster.
Our favourite for birthdays and celebrations. We wouldn’t go anywhere else.
A long planned visit which did not disappoint.
Lovely meal- as usual
An excellent New Year’s Eve meal with friends. The food was delicious, and the service excellent as usual. A great choice of high quality wines. A perfect way to end 2019!
We did not like our table in the middle as we felt jostled on both sides by serving staff and also customers going to the toilet, bringing pushchairs past us etc. There was not enough space for our table and we found this uncomfortable and distracting. Everything else was good. Service, food, atmosphere all very enjoyable.
Wonderful as always 😍
Fantastic, out of the way restaurant. Originally an old pub, but retains lots of the old features. Great food and wine list. Not cheap, but worth every penny. Friendly, attentive yet unobtrusive staff make for a lovely evening. Go!
My wife and I have been customers of the Crab and Lobster for years. We went for lunch with our daughter on Sunday and something was different, I had the loin of pork which was dry and a bit tough, the roast potatoes were so crispy I could not cut them let alone try to chew them!. I had to ask for my wine three times, the place was not so busy but sad to say we are not able to say that the lunch was perfect, far from it!!...Lets get the old fashioned service and lovely food back to what it was...Come on Crab and Lobster team buck up.
Excellent food and atmosphere well recommended
Really great lunch
All the food the three of us ate on Christmas Day was outstanding. All the meat was impeccably cooked and the sauces well made and extremely tasty. The service was friendly and attentive.
All was really good on the day, food fabulous, and attention to detail great!
Christmas Day, and the second time we have had our Christmas lunch at the Crab and Lobster. A warm welcome, a terrific atmosphere, and excellent food. When circumstances mean you can't be with your family on this special occasion, the Crab and Lobster experience is second to none - we were so fortunate to have found this place, whilst walking around Chichester Harbour, a few years ago. Many happy returns!
When we arrived, we couldn’t hear each other speak because there were so many people at the bar.. as it’s such a small pub I was surprised drinks were being served at the same time as dinner. I’ve been for Christmas lunch at much bigger pubs and they stopped bar service when Christmas lunch started. For the price we paid, it would have been nice to have a family conversation without shouting over the table. The main course wasn’t very hot either but the starters and deserts were delicious. I’ve had so many wonderful meals at your establishment and we decided to treat ourselves this year by coming for our Christmas lunch, but left feeling somewhat of an afterthought..
