Exquisite seafood, all freshly prepared by the hard working chefs, and delivered by a charming team who all worked well together. The atmosphere is relaxed, jolly, noisy and fun. The herb crusted ling was on a bed of delicious vegetables and just gorgeous. You will need to book as this is a hugely popular place for lunch and dinner, and... More

I love this place ( plaice?). I cannot wait to visit again. The fish was brilliant and the service was great. This is my idea of a restaurant. See you again soon. Sand sole - never heard of it before, but it is heaven. Highly recommended.

We made a reservation for Easter Monday and the weather was gorgeous so we sat outside. The meal was fantastic - we started with mussels in a cream sauce and scallops, followed by hake with potatoes and leeks, ending with some delicious ice creams and sorbets. My husband had a lovely cider, I had delicious prosecco followed by a unique... More

We enjoyed a delicious family lunch. Food was just super fresh fish, best I've had in years. Service was great, a slight mix up over desert was dealt with using customer care that was faultless. Not cheap, but well worth the money.

The Crab House was recommended by a friend and what a good choice it was. This is a real beach side cafe with extras. We had fresh Plaice and Sole which were delicious, do save some space for the puddings as they are wonderful.

Crab House Cafe. On the edge of Chesil Beach behind the Ferry Bridge Inn. Ample parking or bus stop close. Only open 1800 to 2130. Been there twice and still not booked early enough to eat inside. Instead there are outside tables under heaters and blankets if you feel draughty. The joy is watching the sunset over Chesil Beach and... More

We have become regulars at the Crab House Cafe and can not recommend it enough. As the name suggests sea food is on the menu and what ever you choose you can be sure it looks and tastes great. Eating in or outside, the service we have been afforded has always been excellent. Can't recommend it enough and already looking... More
