Dining options: Late Night, Reservations
Description: Nestling on the banks of Pagham Harbour Nature Reserve the 350 year old Crab & Lobster has been renovated creating one of the most stunning hideaways on the South Coast. The restaurant successfully combines excellent service and presentation, stylish décor and friendly ambience with food of the highest quality. Where possible, the menu is sourced from local producers – Selsey fishermen and neighbouring dairy farmers. With an adventurous emphasis on fresh fish and of course crab and lobster! There are also traditional English and Mediterranean dishes to tempt the taste buds and thrill the palate. The fabulous wine list has delightfully wordy descriptions, with 17 classics by the glass to help you choose – some you will know and many you’ve yet to discover. If you wish to dine alfresco the terrace and the beer garden have beautiful views of the countryside.

Very close to our holiday accommodation, The Crab and Lobster was a rare find and recommended by a local person. Good menu, excellent food, and efficient service in pleasant surroundings. Not a cheap eat but worth it for us. Would visit again.

We have been visiting for a few years and have never been disappointed, love the seasonal menu. Quiet out of the way location. If you do not enjoy the food, the atmosphere, the service or the wine. You must be some sort of special food snob.

Wow loved this restaurant from the moment we walked in it oozed quality and a feel of a place that's well run/managed.
As for the food we both loved our dishes I had the Turbot and my partner had the Mackerel both dishes were presented beautifully and with taste to match.
Thank you Crab & Lobster Team you all made our evening a night to remember :-)

I`ve found it to be overrated and expensive. Why does Pork Belly have to be so dam expensive when in fact it is one the cheapest cuts of meat. I will not be going there for a while if i am paying that`s for sure.

Can’t thank the staff enough, excellent service, great food.

Not to be confused with the Crab & Lobster in Thirsk, North Yorkshire, which I mistakenly booked for my wife and I’s 2nd anniversary. Thankfully the staff found the funny side, and despite it being a Sunday night on an August bank holiday weekend they were able to accommodate us despite being fully booked!

Saving the day is an understatement, and my blushes.

Can’t recommend highly enough.
