Ate here for lunch on a Sunday. The food quality was very good.. There were 6 of us and all our meals were lovely apart from my Dads fish pie. It was very bland - could of done with something! Service was good and a good location.

Very poor service after ordering our starters and a child's meal we then decided to order our main meals which no one came to take our order or even clean our table from the starters which is not the blame of the waitress she was run off her feet but the guy helping her was hiding and on his mobile...

We enjoyed our meal and was impressed with the children's menu and the activity sheet that was provided although there was a lack of pencils etc. The food was well presented and the service was quite good.

We stopped here on a whim one night whilst on holiday. We were lucky to get a table on the terrace as the restaurant was very busy. Great views out to see and my husband loved watching the ships. The food was nice - we chose the crab and prawn timbale and baked crab to start which were delicious. For... More

The seafood is nice here but not outstanding. The staff are disorganised and there are long queues which the service set up only helps to exacerbate. There is a lot of the menu and they seem to be trading on past glory. Plus it is very expensive for a pub in the middle of no where.

We stayed for a weekend and will never return again. From the time we booked in to the hotel we realised we had made a mistake staying here. The service from booking in until checking out was diabolical, This really is a case of taking your money and running. The restaurant was booked even though we were not informed of... More

Called in for Sunday lunch, expecting to be able to find seafood on the menu, asked at the counter for fresh fish only to be told by a rather impatient waiter that there was a choice between Trout and Salmon? I may not be an expert but I do believe the latter is fresh seafood? We then settled for crab... More

During a weeks holiday on the Isle of Wight, my husband and I ate here twice, we did not stay at the crab & lobster so I can't comment on the accommodation, but the food was fantastic, on both visits we had seafood and it was absolutely mouthwatering, the price was good for the quality of the food and the...

We stayed at the Crab & Lobster for three nights B & B from last Monday, so we could visit our daughter who had recently moved from St. Helens to just around the corner. Having lived on the Island for many years, some time ago, we knew of the C&L but only as a place for a pleasant drink. Staying... More
