We cannot rate this restaurant highly enough, everything from the welcome, the decor, the service, the knowledgeable staff, the diverse menu options and the amazing wine list. It does not get any better than this!!

Lovely meal. Staff were attentive even when the place was full. Food excellent and really nice that the children’s menu had different to the norm. My 8 year old loved the seafood platter with the addition of sprats!

My wife and I have visited the Crab House on a number of occasions but we decided to take some friends for lunch on New Year's Day. We were absolutely delighted by the quality of the food and service - outstanding, and our friends are raving about their great experience. Well done and keep up the good work

All the staff were particularly professional. They had quite a difficult customer to deal with whilst we were there and dealt with him to perfection which was great to see,Will eat with you every time we visit Wells

The service was superb. When one of our party complained the food was too hot ( spicy hot) they offered to change it for something else. However we swiped dishes and all was well! Great place.

we visited to celebrate our anniversary. It was a wet and miserable day outside but the welcome, ambience and service were warm and welcoming. The food was delicious and we were given an anniversary card. Wonderful.
