This is our favourite restaurant and for good reason. Superb front of house service from Kelly and her staff is matched only by the knowledge and skill of Scott and those in the kitchen who never fail in providing the very best of dishes.

Lovely fresh seafood. This was a revisit after a 2yr break, it was just as good as we remembered. No lobster, but that wasn't the restaurant's fault, the lobsters just didn't want to join in.

We were recommended to this restaurant, and what a find it is. Even in this difficult time the atmosphere was great, the staff were excellent and attentive, i have a rare allergy and they gave me a menu specially done for me, this I have not received in Michelin starred restaurants in London, I have been recommending wells crab house to all ever since, visit with confidence that you will have the freshest amazing food, and leave thinking WOW

Excellent meal!! We had been looking forward to the Crab House for a few weeks since booking (even though my partner isn't a big lover of seafood...) and it didn't disappoint... from the gin to the dessert it was fabulous; the only critisism (if any) the portions are on the large side so if you don't have a big appetite maybe leave out a course...

We were recommended by friends and were impressed. Meticulous organisation in the midst of a year deeply affected by the Covid-19 pandemic was very reassuring. Even before we arrived the boundaries were very clear and remained so during the meal. Food is superb and sensibly priced as is the wine list. All in all a really enjoyable evening and one I very much hope to repeate!
