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
Lovely staff very helpful. For evening meal the food was tasty but the mussels were terrible and seemed to be floating in milk. Very overpriced. Decor was nice for the day but there was zero atmosphere in the evening.
We love The Cracking Crab!

Thank you for more amazing food, lovely atmosphere. Sophie looked after us exceptionally well, delightful young lady, super friendly. Loved seeing the huge change in a couple of days in James who we feel will be a great asset to the business, a lovely young lad. Sadly Kate needs an attitude change! She was rude when we arrived, stating we’d booked a booth when I politely asked if there was a window seat. Your new booking system only let me have booths so she needs to understand that. Sophie took the time stating you’d got a new system so was glad with our feedback. The booths are fab and we sat there again on Tuesday night.Kate is far to brisk with your customers and we ended up not ordering wine as she’d irritated us! As she was not there on Tuesday night we had a much better experience
Thank you for the feedback Alison, that's extremely helpful to hear and of course we will take note of your thoughts and experience. I am so pleased Sophie was helpful!
We’ve visited dozens of times and always loved The Cracking Crab. Our only previous niggle, uncomfortable director’s chairs, has now been solved with new chairs!! Perfect.
Thank you for the lovely review Jono! Glad the new chairs were a hit! Hope to see you again soon!
We were there a day after they re opened for the new season, Thoroughly good night out and great sunset.
Thank you for the lovely review Chris! Hope to see you again soon!
We come in regularly since you opened, usually lunch times, never been disappointed.
Thank you for the lovely review Julie! Hope to see you again soon!
Great evening, thank you, be back very soon
Excellent evening in wonderful setting managed with style by the staff
Staff were lovely and nothing was too much trouble despite a very busy evening. Food was excellent on each of the three occasions we ate at this great restaurant. We will certainly return again and again!
Excellent food and presented well. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Just a feeling that the main courses were on the pricey side with most at £20 plus.
Waitress was great, food average...and expensive
Again a lovely evening but a bit cold
We loved it and the food and service were exemplary. Our only slight criticism is that the prices are pretty high but I guess that you have a generally wealthy customer base.
Thank you for the lovely and considered feedback Roy. We really appreciate your thoughts and hope to see you again next year!
I have spent a lot of the summer in Polzeath and only this week a special last camping trips with my girls. We love the CC! great food, great service and customer care. Not only amazing views, food, drink but a great place just to hang out. kids play in the large garden area whilst the adults just chill

Thank you for the lovely review! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Lovely dining experience, both waitresses and bar staff a credit to you. Food is wonderful. Your staff dealt quickly and efficiently with two drunks who came in and I don’t think many people in the restaurant noticed an issue- well done! The waitresses were so helpful to ensure that the disabled in our party were comfortable and happy.
Good food and great service in a lovely setting for a September Sunset.
Fantastic food and amazing views. Service was brilliant. Can’t fault it, we had such a lovely evening.
Whole experience was fab, lovely friendly staff, fab location, couldn't ask for more, thank you xxxxx
