After reading all the negative reviews on Tripadvisor my husband and I were a bit hesitant to have lunch at the Crayfish Inn. On Saturday, 22 November 2014 we decided to have lunch at the Crayfish Inn and we were pleasantly surprised by the interesting décor and lovely laid back ambience. The one seating area is very informal and filled... More

My daughter could not wait to return to Crayfish Inn, to the friendly waiters, great service and amazing food, but on our arrival, our chinese friends ave been replaced by South Africans, with an arrogant boyish waiter. There was no service, we waited for food and drinks, until my husband complained. We then received 2 free beers and a lot... More

When the food eventually arrived it was really good, but. .. It took us an hour to get our main course despite having booked. The beer was warm. Look everyone knows it is high season but there is certainly no discount for 'seasonal inconvenience', so surely a restaurant should increase its staff complement and prepare? Our waitress was just incompetent.... More

I recently visited The Crayfish Inn with much reservations after reading the mixed reviews here. I am delighted to say that my overall experience was excellent. The service was great, and only outdone by the fabulous standard of food. The pricing is excellent considering the top quality food on offer. Ill definitely be back.

We were there for 3 hours and were served a starter in that time, chased our main after waiting an hour and a half after ordering to be told it will be 7 minutes, 15 minutes later we chased it...

We went for a drink there the day before and decided (wrongly) to make a booking for the next evening. We turned up at 7pm (with a group of 7) and were allocated a table at the back of the restaurant. We ordered our drinks very smoothly (although the table water never arrived) and then our starters. These arrived after... More

Anchored up and waited 3 hours just for our starter. Not a ripple so rocked the boat and waved bye. Pear
