An absolutely brilliant weekend, our room was perfect and the staff fun and friendly at the same time as being utterly professional. Our bikes are washed and put to bed after a great weekend cycling around the area and getting very muddy! If you want a real treat then this is the place to go, its not a cheap hotel... More

This was our first visit to the Crab & Lobster but it certainly won't be our last. This delightful place is a little off the 'beaten track' but it is so worth a visit. I opted for my usual two entrees. I started with a delightful Goats Cheese Panna Cotta. Just divine. Followed by Thai Crab Cakes and a Tomato... More

I would heartily recommend the crab and lobster. Great food, friendly staff, wonderful location. We have been here a few times and it never disappoints. Lovely rooms too. The.staff really go to extra mile, and kindly returned my charger after I left it behind.

Wow ! What an experience. Decided to do something different and avoid the traumas of shopping/cooking for the masses and instead have a slap up lunch cooked and washed up by someone else, in a superb waterfront setting! The Pub was chock full of happy people when we arrived at 1p.m. Very noisy and excited atmosphere but very enjoyable too.... More

Been so recently(today 1/1/2015) couldn't put the date in!! Drove from Buckinghamshire for lunch here and it was worth every mile(all 93 of them each way). Very warm welcome, great Bloody Mary followed by delicious starters and sublime mains-try the paella!!! Excellent wine list with good number available by the glass. Minor niggle poor parking so check tide table!! All... More

Stopped here for a pint and a bite after a walk, thinking this was a pub. It is not a pub but a restaurant serving overpriced food. We had two Caesar salads that were drowned in dressing and two fish soups that were not finished as they were not good. We also had 3 cokes and a beer. Cost £60.... More

Spent two days here over the Christmas holiday, what a fantastic place to be. Very good accommodation and the food on Christmas Day was really excellent. The staff are very friendly and helpful despite being very busy. The location is wonderful with excellent walking opportunities. We will be back.

I have just returned from a Xmas stay at the Crab. A party of us 12 in total plus a gorgeous baby, my great grandchild. We all had a really great time. The accommodation was just right including the cottage, where we all spent Xmas Eve. Lunch on Xmas Day was memorable, the staff did everything they could to make... More

Popped into the C&L after a beautiful, wet and windy walk across the beach in Wittering. The welcoming was warm and sitting by the fire a great way to warm after the experience. Hospitality was great and the advice on food and real ale selection helped make it a very enjoyable lunch. You need to book and probably not a... More
