Reviewed July 6, 2012

Bringing back memories of the original Crab and Lobster. Refurbishment had been sympathetic carried out to an extremelly high standard. Based next to th co owned The Legh Arms. All food is fresh and wine list reflects the times wevliveviffering both affordability and Quality. Well worth a try.

“This is the best around without doubt!!!!!”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

We have tried both 'a la carte' and the Wed / Thurs special. The food is up there with the absolute best, no restaurant can compare with this quality. The 'a la carte' was nothing less than heaven. The special was the best value I have experienced and is totally genuine not the usual less money for less food, it was brilliant. Thank goodness for honest value - well done!!

“Excellent food, service and atmosphere ;)”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

Family run restaurant with very friendly staff who are happy to cater to your needs, great food, the piano is an interesting feature in a small dining room but very enjoyable, beautiful young singer who will go far, she is their absolute gem after all the dining is over. Well worth a night out in groups or families.

“Great Restaurant. Hidden Gem!”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

We arrived at the restaurant to find a beautiful dinning room, we had never seen the inside before only in passing from the outside and we were very impressed indeed. The service was great and very friendly. The food tasted amazing very good flavours in both the courses we had. I personnally had the Duck Breast which was cooked to perfection. Would recommened tghis restaurant to anyone.
