Walked with friends from Bognor Regis to Pagham and had lunch at The Crab & Lobster. Always a lovely treat to come to this wonderful place to eat. Have never stayed but it certainly looks a lovely place to stay. Staff are so helpful and there is never a problem to get seating even if it means we have to... More

Odd title for a hotel/restaurant review, that is decent top end destination, but what a wonderful place to stay and dine at. We booked on one of The Crab and Lobster offers but I would go there again on a full price and would wholeheartedly recommend a stay there. If you do book to stay, then remember not to worry...

We've just had a wonderful two night stay at this quaint/contemporary restaurant with rooms. The "restaurant" experience probably wins versus the "room" experience due to the constraints that a little listed building inevitably involves (bumped heads on low beams; non-existent acoustic insulation etc). The setting is dramatic and unique, but considering you are surrounded by coast, the sea seems a... More

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
