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
Family friendly, very warm and welcoming. Great service and food. We will keep coming back xx
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
Great venue and wonderful food. We will be back! Loved everything!
Amazing restaurant! Food was excellent - especially the sea food platter and reasonably priced. Staff were polite and attentive - thank you :)
Excellent sea food. Excellent service. The venue lacks any sound deadening. And as a result very noisy. Large windows are the cause but the views are superb. Nice touch--- dressing up clothes for the kids.
Had a lovely meal - the staff forgot to add the main meals - as there were 12 of us, would have expected a huge thank you for letting them know. Food was good, would certainly come back
Great restaurant with superb views
All good....ribeye apparently excellent as was my hake
We live in Exeter and this was our first visit but I can assure you it wont be our last, there was a lovely buzz about the restaurant the staff were very helpful and obliging and the food was excellent, cant wait to come to this area again so we can revisit, well done.
Our party had a lovely evening.
Wonderful meal at the Cracking Crab after a long road trip!
Excellent! Thoroughly enjoyed our meals.
Great waiters, very hard working and cheerful
Great venue, service & food....love the booths & the view they give you over the great beach @ Polzeath!
Where’s the duck curry ... favourite for last year and it doesn’t get a rehash .... that’s the problem with us locals we want you open all year round :)
Fantastic food and very enjoyable evening as usual :) We will be back, many times!
Delicious food and fun atmosphere. Casual. In fact, pretty perfect and have booked again for two nights later!
Excellent food and service
Food here was brilliant, service very efficient and done with a smile!
Beautiful setting with great food and service. Very enjoyable for the children too!
Having visited this restaurant for the last 5 years including my 25th wedding anniversary celebration I am most upset at the service provided by the Cracking Crab last week and in particular the attitude of the Manager. The setting and the food are both good, however when 18 of us visited to celebrate a graduation, a 50th birthday and A level results we were met with indifference when we asked to have 4 separate bills. We had to write starters and main meals down ourselves! One of our party did not receive her meal and when asked 3 times over a period of half an hour where her meal was she was told it is on its way. It did not come and as everyone else had finished she told them not to bother due to her disappointment. I tried to speak to the Manager in a reasonable and calm manner to see how the situation could be resolved. He was rude, dismissive and was unable to negotiate a resolution and asked us to leave. He said we were the type of people who should eat in MacDonalds. This was judgemental and offensive. I feel very sad as this is an annual event on holiday for 4 families.
Great atmosphere, very friendly staff and delicious food! We had a really fun night and would definitely recommend it.
