“Great food”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

We loved the food here. All obviously home cooked and the portions sizes were very good.

The service was very good and they were very accommodating in all areas.

We will definitely be visiting again.

“Surf AND Turf”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Obviously the Crab House's excellent and deserved reputation is based on their very popular seafood, but from many of the reviews here it would be easy to get the impression that there is little on offer for the dedicated carnivore.
On our recent visit the specials board included Sausage bacon & liver casserole, Beef in ale pie, and Holkham venison pie (fabulous) and that was in addition to their standard menu items of steaks, gammon, beefburgers etc.
So yes, the seafood is special, but there really is something for everyone. With Becks on draught, a decent selection of bottled beers and a sensible range of wines on offer - what more could you ask for?
