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

Stayed here for couple of nights leading up to the Bank Holiday in a double room with gorgeous sea views..well worth the small supplement. Had no problems with the staff who were all really helpful... food was well cooked & a good price. Really enjoyed our stay & would certainly visit again.

I am extremely sorry if you felt that a member of my staff had been rude in the way he spoke to you and as you mentioned you have been in the hospitality business for many years you will understand that this needs to be addressed so if you would be so kind to email me the time and date... More

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
