We moved to Bembridge just under a year ago and knowing the Crab and Lobster from the past, it has become our local. Like a previous reviewer I cannot understand the bad reviews either. We had lunch on both 17th and 20th August very much the peak time for holiday makers in Bembridge, and it was very busy. On both... More

We had lunch here on 20th Aug. and were pleasantly surprised with the quality of food and service. Despite all the bad reviews given of late, it was an excellent experience. We had the crab sandwiches and Lobster mornay. Both were very fresh and well presented. Will definitely go back again.

As a family with young children it is always a relief to find a quality pub which welcomes families as noisy as ours! We found the service first class and the food quality very high. We ate at peak times in a very busy pub and still have no complaints about time between ordering and eating. Overall an excellent experience,... More

whilst reasonably clean was looking tired and our double room would be ideal for a single but sidling around furniture was not what I expected of a weekend break nor was listening to staff and their doings whilst smoking outside the window after dark the noise of the adjoining rooms shower reverberated through the whole room and that doesn't take...

For our first night stay in Bembridge, we decided to book a meal here so we didn't have to rush around, we wish we hadn't. basically the standard off food is very average,(basic pub food) i would say it is even rather expensive for the quality, Bembridge has a lot more to offer

I was expecting great things from the adverts in the visitor press and people telling me that I must visit. I couldn't get onto the internet to read the reviews so we let the devil take the high road went excitedly into the breach. That's how we roll. Other reviewers have told the stories about the ordering system, the length... More

Been there for food every year now for the last three years, had great experiences up until our latest visit, which was such a let down as we found the standard had dropped incredibly low. We're aware that pub food will always be reflective to the price but this is clearly an unacceptable standard of food. Out of four meals,... More

I had a meal with a friend at the Crab and Lobster in Bembridge around 20.30pm on 19/07/14, I ordered the BBQ butterflied chicken breast at £12:95 and my friend ordered the rump steak at £14:95 and substituted her onion rings and chips for a jacket potato and coleslaw without any problem. We were served very promptly and on first... More

Came here as a party of ten whilst staying nearby and this place proved to be a fantastic find. We were a rowdy bunch but the staff catered for us so well we came back later in the week and had equally great service. Food was freshly caught fish and was delicious. View outside across the bay was something too.... More

We had to try this place as we were staying almost next door to it. Firstly you have to pay up front? Or give them your card to run a tab. Why would you hand over your bank card to someone behind a bar?? It's self service almost! I got a bottle of Pino, and was handed the bottle with... More
