Lovely, cozy atmosphere. Scallops starter and Cod main were cooked to perfection. The sticky toffee pudding with ice cream was really good.

Faultless! Our dining and overnight stay experience exceeded all our expectations. From the friendly and efficient welcome to the sublime food presented so expertly and the service throughout our stay the whole weekend was superb. We'll definitely go back.

Food and service were excellent, but the price of the wine was a little excessive.

Can't fault our few days at The Crab & Lobster at all. Made to feel very welcome from the moment we stepped over the threshold, the cottage couldn't have been better, food and drink fantastic and staff very helpful - just what we needed.

Everything is geared towards making the guests as comfortable and satisfied as possible. Mark, Susie and the whole team can’t do enough for you - they go the extra mile. The food is superb and the rooms are very comfortable with character. The area is a piece of unspoilt old England. All in all, a lovely break for the two of us. Thank you all.

We love the Crab and Lobster and hope our 3rd visit will not be our last. We did think over £200 a night was quite a lot of money, even though we had Room 1 and it was the weekend. And for that price it would have been nice to have had a flannel and maybe even a dressing gown. Lovely food. Many thanks to the chef. A bit more info / maps etc re local walks would be nice. Thank you Mark and all the team for your good care and warm welcome. Best wishes to you all.
