Neville runs a good seaside restaurant. There is a clear team at work, which provides for a pleasant, relaxed atmosphere. Fish is superbly cooked; try Turbot if you can. Quite the best I have tasted. Puddings are good, too, with taste and adventure in their making. The cafe is different ,in its seaside shack appearance, but that all adds to... More

Decided to treat my wife to a lovely lunchtime break from the norm as part of a pre birthday treat. Everything from the service, food and drink was delightful. Couldnt fault the place, and we will be going back again, if not just to purchase the cook book(great touch). Thank you

Don't be fooled by the outside - the food at the Crab House was a lovely surprise after driving through a rather uninspiring drive way! We went for a special treat for my dad and it didnt let us down - all of our dishes were amazing and the service was very good with the explanations of what each dish... More

My husband and I had a fantastic evening here last week. The food was amazing and we had a lovely table outside in the sun. We really enjoyed the seafood, which was all cooked wonderfully. Missing the fifth star though as I felt the service dropped off towards the end of our visit, pretty sure they forgot we were out... More

This is the second time I have eaten here and have to say I was very disappointed the second time around as the food was very average but RIDICULOUSLY expensive for the quality and quantitiy. For one crab, one kids fish and chips, 2 glasses of wine, one pudding and a lemonade the bill was £60!!! Will not be going... More

I have been regular visitor to the Crab House Cafe and up until this week it has been a regular staple to which we would take guests and introduce them to the seafood that Dorset has to offer. Last June we booked a table for 10 to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary and the evening went well with us situated... More
