Excellent choice, great food, great service, good selection of Gins and good wine list, make sure you book early, this place is always busy, not surprising when you consider how good it is. We will certainly come again.

Our first visit to the Crab House, just 50 miles away, for dinner and the bottom line is if we could give the place 6 or even 10 stars, we would. The food was out of this world - the skate was just stunning. Perfectly...More
