About The Cracking Crab
The latest addition to The Winking Prawn Group is the Cracking Crab in Polzeath, Cornwall. With a name like “The Cracking Crab” you can guess what we do? Crab - and a lot of it! There’s seafood by the bucket load and juicy West Country steaks off the grill, so why not check out the menu? The bar is always fully stocked with chilled local beers, ciders and wine, perfect out on the sundeck soaking up the views
Great, friendly service. Fun evening atmosphere for a group of friends. Great menu selection, most dishes excellent quality. Unique location.
A fabulous place to eat, and a safe and well managed establishment .. We felt safe and welcome from start to finish. Had lunch one day and dinner another during our break.. Can’t wait to go back
Our evening here was brilliant and my kids said it was the best meal ever
Great early meal for two year olds birthday!
Lovely food , the prawn cocktail topped with crab was delicious , all served in a great location and with friendly staff Definately best place to eat on Polzeath !
We absolutely LOVED The Cracking Crab! The service was amazing, with all the staff being very friendly and welcoming. They set up our table so that we could both look out to sea which was a lovely touch. We then shared the seafood platter which was super fresh and delicious!
Had a fantastic evening at the cracking crap. Food was excellent and service extremely friendly and the just the right side of being there when you need them and leaving you alone to enjoy your evening. The restaurant was busy with a great buzzy atmosphere. Definitely recommend and will be booking in again when we are down next.
As repeat customers for many years we enjoy coming back but would love some new additions to the menu.
Exceptional view, good service, mediocre food, unreasonable prices.
The staff were outstanding. We were very embarrassed as had no cash to leave a tip. But thank you to them.
Fantastic view and delicious seafood. Felt like we were in the Caribbean!

Delicious food and very good service. Thank you.
A very enjoyable and pleasant evening. The staff were very welcoming and helpful
Fantastic position overlooking Polzeath beach. Very COVID friendly. Service was exceptionally good, both waiters were friendly very helpful and knowledgable. The food and drink were presented well and tasted wonderful. Yes expensive, but certainly worth it.
