We celebrated a birthday here with friends and both the food and service were superb. Fairly informal in nature, the food is both imaginative and top quality. Very welcoming and an excellent wine list too - try the local Tinwood sparkler. We had been before and will certainly be going again.

We stayed in room 1 and had a lovely view of the fields and a spacious room. There were fresh roses in the room which was a nice touch. We went for a walk around the RSPB reserve accessible just outside the pub. We had a nice dinner. Service was a bit off for the quality of the food but... More

We dropped in @ the c&l whilst on our holidays in Selsey. As soon as we walked through the door we were greeted by a welcoming smile by the staff. The food was delicious & the staff couldn't do enough to help us as we have a 4 month old son who decided he would "have a paddy!" The staff... More

We ended up here after a very muddy walk and we were a bit worried we wouldn't be let in! No worries here as the team were very welcoming and another muddy cycling party also arrived shortly afterwards. Great food and great service. Yes it isn't really a pub more of a restaurant, and the prices reflect that but it... More

We chose the C&L for a weekend away - just far enough, but not a massive trek type weekend. Great room up in the roof of the building and wonderful service. We arrived very late after the kitchen had closed, but a lovely meal appeared nonetheless. Dinner was excellent and the range of local wines were an excellent accompaniment. Really... More

Lunch for my wife and me this sunny Spring Sunday. And instead of the traditional roast we went done the fishy route, which is after all what the C&L is famous for. We weren't disappointed. We had the fish soup and scallops with pork. Both were exquisite. Them followed with Selsey crab for both of us. Fresh, unfussy salad and... More

Just back from a lovely weekend stay. We had one of the delux rooms ( not the one in the eves) as I am too tall (6'4) which was intelligently enquired of us by the lady we spoke to at the time of booking. The room was very clean , cosy and beautifully appointed. A clever merging of nice modern... More

I want to write a review about the restaurant here but could not find it under restaurants which was very surprising as it must be one of the best pub restaurants in Sussex. We had lunch last Monday 4 of us. We had the set lunch and the food was excellent with some unusual and delicious combinations. The waitress who... More

Just back from a lovely mini break on the South Coast. We stayed at Crab & Lobster as it was recommended in Red magazine and we were not in any way disappointed. The deluxe room (1) was spacious and beautifully appointed. The restaurant was excellent and served superb largely fish based dishes (steak and lamb plus veggie options too), my... More

We stayed for two nights here and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The staff were outstanding and couldn't have been more helpful. We stayed in room 4 at the top of the building with stunning views over fields and the estuary. The room was well appointed with a fantastic en suite bathroom. The food was excellent and the specials changed each... More
