The Crabshell Inn in set in a lovely location on the Estuary. Views are lovely and relaxing,service is good and the food is a cut above most other resturants in the area.

Great restaurant and amazing sea food. Beautiful views from the terrace over the estuary. The calamari was the best I have ever had.

I am very sorry you found your experience here less than satisfactory. I take a very serious view of negative feedback and try to examine carefully where we have failed. On the day you first visited our tables were fully booked for a number of days in advance as is normally the case at this time of year. We do... More

Had our last lunch here when visiting Kingsbridge. very friendly efficient staff and really superb food: my lobster and husband's haddock and chips. Faultless. Not easy to find this quality of food at this price!

Lovely location, right on the embankment of the Kingsbridge estuary. We thought that £4 for a pint of lager was a bit steep, but perhaps there is premium on the drinks because of the location. If you like pizza and a bubbling vibrant atmosphere then this is perfect, however if you want a place to have a leisurely relaxing meal... More
