Visited while staying in Kingsbridge. The smell of the food outside being cooked sets taste buds off. Then when you eat it not disappointed... Lovely place overlooking the estuary in Kingsbridge.

Arrived on spec last Sunday - waitress found us a table within 10 minutes and we ordered the seafood platter to share - really good and surprisingly filling. Good value overall and would call in again if in the area.

We popped in for dinner on the off chance on our way home from the beach. The restaurant was fully booked so we had an excellent pizza in the bar.

Popped in after a morning surf, managed to get a table although lots were already booked. Portions were good and the pizza was tasty. The best thing was the lobster chips, soooo tasty! Nice modern decoration and nice situation by the estuary. Parking is a little tight

I have eaten at the Crabshell many times over the last 25 years.
