Went with my family dinner and the staff made us feel very welcome. Modern decor with a relaxed atmosphere and great food. My husbands duck starter was delicious as was my Halibut for a main. They catered for my 7yr old and nothing was a problem. A bit expensive but well worth a visit.

This was the most wonderful meal. All the food was superb as was the service and presentation. I had a turbot main course which was one of the best main courses ever. It is a lovely summers evening place to go, near the water and only a 20 minute drive from the centre of Chichester. It is pricey but worth... More

We went to the Crab and Lobster for lunch today and were absolutely delighted. The staff were extremely welcoming and made us feel very comfortable. I had the fish of the day - superb pan fried cod and my other half had the Selsey crab. It was delicious. Highly recommended.

This is a regular haunt for my family after trips to the Witterings and our recent visit did not disappoint. We were treated to the mackerel and crab starters which were followed by the pork (outstanding) and the tomato and parmesan tart. We were able to dine in the delightful gardens and enjoy the dusk. A magical place to eat... More

We really enjoyed our night at the Crab and Lobster. Found it by chance when booking a last minute weekend out of London. Thought hotel was amazing - our room was fantastic. When we checked in the girl was very friendly and welcoming. Thought the food was very nice as well - but not amazing. We had the dressed crab... More

Booked a meal for 4 on Sunday 13th July at the Crab and Lobster. Picked it by chance as it was a special birthday treat for my sister-in-law living in Felphem. What a treat it was to be greeted by a cheerfull welcome, a table outside in the lovely afternoon sun. Food was excellent and served in wonderful style. Wine... More

The BEST 4-5 Star Food & Service; outside of central London. Crab & Lobster is a high-end gourmet restaurant; the location is prefect! We had a Romantic Birthday Dinner; for two. Fresh Lobster, Fresh Crab; with a wonderful cheese board.

Great restaurant in a quiet location less than 10 miles from Goodwood. First class service and a menu heavily biased towards seafood. The Turbot and Lobster specials were excellent. Thoroughly recommended and we'll certainly return next time we're in the area.

Had dinner at the Crab and Lobster last evening -- take ear plugs to kill the noise as conversation almost impossible -- and take a magnifying glass to spot the meal as the portions are minute. The only large item is the bill. David Thomson

We've just had a lovely two day stay at the Crab And Lobster, which we used as a base to explore Chichester and enjoy West Wittering beach. We stayed in a standard room (room 3) which is very well appointed. Not overly spacious but more than enough for us. The room is stylish, has a good sized modern bathroom, a... More
