Lovely restaurant, both food and service were outstanding. Exemplary COVID measures in place which enabled us to relax and enjoy our meal without worry. I would definitely return to this wonderful restaurant.

We went on the first night of opening after Covid, and they were very efficient and took time to explain the systems they had in place. Food and service were excellent.

We always adore going to The Crab House, but were a bit worried about social distance when we went on the re-opening night. However, it was brilliantly organised and we felt very safe & relaxed. The new arrangement s did not dent the fabulous welcoming atmosphere, & staff, gins and food were top notch as ever. Couldn’t recommend more highly!

We visited on the first day of re-opening and they have done an incredible job of combining social distancing and still making the restaurant very welcoming. The food continues to be excellent.

This was our first visit to Wells Crab House and from our experience, we will certainly be making return visits from our home in Suffolk! Particularly impressed by the prevalence of local supplies (the Norfolk Whinn Hill Cider was a firm favourite!). Both food and service was excellent ... fantastic staff. Thank you for making our weekend in Wells so special.

The staff at the restaurant ensured that my husband's 60th birthday was celebrated in a special way. From the hand washing as we entered the restaurant, to the service at the table, we could not have wished for a more pleasant evening. The "big one" platter was superb, we only just managed to finish the meal! Thank you.

The restaurant had adjusted to working during the current coronavirus situation very well. They had provided hand washing facilities at the entrance and reduced the number of tables so that they were at least 2m apart. The meal was excellent and the staff very efficient and friendly. We will certainly return when we are next in the area.

We had a a very enjoyable meal on Friday evening, We had an early sitting of 6:30pm. We were told to vacant the table by 8pm. It did seem a little rushed, however after finishing our main course we were told that the nest booking had cancelled and we were told to stay as long as we liked. The staff were very friendly, the food delicious and the atmosphere was lovely. Will definitely be back. Thank you.

Thank you for a wonderful birthday treat! Four of us enjoyed everything we ate. I haven’t eaten oysters for years and those served at the crab house were perfect! I also particularly enjoyed a delicious crab curry. Staff were attentive and Knowledgable and next time we visit Wells we’ll be sure to book.

Loved the whole experience , the only thing we weren't keen on was the decision to play music in the restaurant! Everything else was great though, food was delicious and staff were friendly, attentive and amazing service! Thank you!
