We keep going back to the Crab House and keep awarding the team five stars. Our favourite place for crab/oysters/fish etc. (outside of the Barking Crab in Boston USA!). Friendly staff, relaxed informal dining experience and nice ambience as always, but the food is the highlight. Great menu (and wine selection) guaranteed and on this visit the Brill with linguini...

If you love fish dishes do not miss this place. Not cheap but worth the expense. Quirky surroundings but a great experience.

A friend recommended this delightful cafe so my husband took me for my birthday. We loved the decor and relaxed atmosphere. The food was stunningly tasty and fresh and it was fab watching the chefs at work. Despite the exploding light bulb we can't wait to go back for more delicious food.

Full of character this place. The most delicious crab I've ever eaten and a wonderful atmosphere. I'd recommend anyone goes there.

Nigel Bloxham's little restaurant on the edge of The Fleet is the next best thing to personally catching, cooking and eating fish straight from the sea. A rustic unpretentious building (some would say 'shack') is the focus, surrounded by fisherman's artefacts, on the edge of the water. Free parking is a bonus. Inside you find a young pleasant team working... More

Great food, great service, great ambience. We had a late lunch of local oysters, followed by mullet in one case and a dressed crab salad in the other, followed by a delightful shared sweet of some kind of 'upside-down' cheesecake come crumble! The service was friendly, helpful and efficient. The food was excellent, and the price very reasonable indeed. If... More

Popped down to the Crab House for a meal, we have been many times before. It is literally my favourite place and I am so sad that the meal was no where as good as it has been before. My squid to start where nicely cooked but so greasy. John Dory fillets were nice and plentiful but a bit tough... More
