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

I was travelling with my two sons to visit my Aunt who lives in Bembridge. I had eaten at the Crab & Lobster Inn several times before and enjoyed the meal, so thought I would try the B&B accommodation. It seemed expensive, but it's near the beach and looking around at other places I thought they were all relatively expensive.... More

This pub is well advertised as somewhere worth making the effort to visit, especially for food. Put simply, it definitely is not. With plenty of waitresses I was surprised to be told I had to order at the bar and that there were specials on the board, but they were behind the till. The result, loads of people crammed around...

Went with some friends for some drinks - Saturday night and found the place to be very quiet (9pm) and even quiet outside on a lovely balmy evening. Staff pleasant and polite, but the place is just lacking in any care at all. Furniture falling apart outside, radiator in the Gents all rusty and looks like it's been like this... More

Having heard that it is in the Good Pub Guide, we went just for dinner. It is a bit difficult to find but once there: the position is brilliant, overlooking the sea; the service was friendly and attentive; and the food was wonderful. We went for the seafood platter for two, and it did NOT disappoint! It was nicely cooked... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here September 2013, and it was absolutely lovely. We had originally planned to stay in a hotel on the other side of the island, however it was awful and therefore randomly picked The Crab & Lobster. So glad we opted for it as it did not let us down. Rooms were great, we stayed in... More

The disaster was that it was a bank holiday weekend and they had a major problem with the gas supply in the middle of Sunday Lunch. The staff and management seemed calm and were doing their very best to keep the service going through what must have been a nightmare for them, the food we had was great ,service great... More

Believe your recollection of events is somewhat misleading. The staff at the Crab and Lobster are completely customer focused and every sympathy/apology was given at the point of sale because we had sold out of lobster a few minutes before, whilst you were in the queue at the food till. We are as you know a very popular, busy, seafood... More
